This weekend will see Jonny Bongo and Joshua Burke open Bongo’s Bungalow.
It’s all set to be Cains Brewery Village’s most intimate hideaway, opening for business over the incoming St Patrick’s Weekend.
Whilst the transient Festive Party House kept the red-eyed spirit of Xmas staggering all the way to NYE, Bongo’s Bungalow is a permanent abode on the fringe of the site, and it launches on Thursday 14th March just in time for the annual celebrations. And fear not – there are plentiful supplies of Bucky, too.
The last few weeks have seen a team of builders – indulging in copious tea and ciggie breaks – essentially tearing the old building down and bringing a new one, phoenix-like, to life with an extensive refurbishment. Bongo’s Bungalow is like everyone’s favourite house party, and one at which there’s no need to worry about the mess after.
It features a kitchen, living room and dining room, plus a beer garden and welcoming porch with plenty of covering if needed from the elements, and lots of open air space for when the sun shines. Oh yes, and there’s a bar too, featuring a range of taste-bud titillating beverages to wash away the day with, including unique cocktails and slushes.
The extensive face-lift has re-shaped the flow of the cosy watering hole, and added more seating and space. There’s plenty of attention to detail as one would expect, from a proper DJ booth to Chesterfield sofas, kitsch wallpaper and an actual fireplace – as you do.
Bongo’s Bungalow will be open every Thursday to Sunday at Cains Brewery Village. Thursday and Friday will see the venue open 5pm until midnight whilst the party starts at midday on Saturday and Sunday.
