London Olympics flaming cocktail Bunga Bunga bar

Bunga Bunga

For an Italian vista on an otherwise exceptionally British summer, Battersea’s Bunga Bunga club is transforming itself into what it describes as the “Ultimate Italian Players Lounge”. The bar will have a board totting up the medals brought ‘home’ by their team of “Italian Stallions”, with waiters and staff enjoying a moment or two of respectful silence to do homage to their great team every time a victory is claimed. Similarly, the Italian national anthem will be belting out continuously throughout the Games, like a beacon of hope to home-sick Italians all over London.

To welcome the Games in in style, the bar/restaurant/club will be hosting an Olympic Opening Ceremony party on Friday 27July, where revelers can win themselves a Bunga Bunga gold medal for their Karaoke efforts. To celebrate their victory (or drown their miseries), or merely to enjoy a typically Italian experience, guests can toast the start of the games with the yard high Olympic Flame(ing cocktail), called ‘La Torcia Olympica’ with Grey Goose Vodka, Amaretto Saliza Veneziano shaken with pink grapefruit Juice and finished with home-made Bunga Mandarin Bitter and Terra Serena Rose Prosecco. Breaking all records, the Olympic flaming torch cocktail will be a yard high, enough for 4-5 people to share…depending on their drinking stamina.
