 The Nip Nirvana Lounge


BBHQ Night Club  ©BionicBasil®


Welcome to The Nip Nirvana Lounge, our nightclub on Level 11 of the Bunker. We are proud to host another epically epic birthday rave and look forward to providing mew with a highly memorable experience.

We regret to inform you that Amber is still banned from managing the bar because of some prior issues at previous raves, the old lush. Though, we have taken the necessary measures to ensure mew receive the very best service while at BBHQ. Including building more kitty droids to serve mew from our extensive cocktail menu.

If mew feel peckish during your stay at The Nip Nirvana Lounge, mew can rely on Humphrey’s A.I. Replicator, conveniently located in the kitchen behind the bar. Peruse through the menu to select your desired snack or nibbles and place your order on the screen at the bar. And if mew wish to customise your order, choose the custom option on the screen and tell it want mew want. The kitty droids will deliver your order promptly.

Smooch and Pandora have curated a fantastic playlist featuring the best dance tracks from the ‘90s and early ‘00s. Mew are guaranteed to have a blast dancing to some of the most epic tunes from back in the day. Be mindful not to trip over Amber and Posie, who are currently indulging in the Blu-topia Mindbender nip cocktail. Humphrey has been busy brewing more catnip beer in his laboratory, which we debuted at Smooch’s Birthday pawty last year, but he says he's now made it even more potent! YIKES!  According to Parsley, it’s an extra fizzy delight that will blow your fur off.

I am currently sampling it, along with the Tangerine Blast nip cocktail as a chaser. Mew can also find the Orange Sunburst Utopia nip cocktail on the drinks menu at the bar, I just had one of those earlier, and I must say it is ameowzing! MOL

For those who enjoy catnip, we have all varieties available, including our homegrown primo-fur-fluffer. We had a new strain called Nutty Fluff-Face launched at Basil’s pawty last month, and by all indications, it’s one of our strongest varieties to date! However, please be cautious as Parsley tried it earlier, and he literally ended up on the ceiling (PAH – What a lightweight pussy! MOL!) And in honour of my birthday this year, Humphrey created a new strain called, THE FLOOF EXPLOSION, so if mew're up for trying new things, this might be right up your alley... just see what happened to my tail on The Midweek News! MOL

Currently, Basil and Snowie are too nipped out to care and are dancing up a storm all around the nightclub. It’ll be a conga line in no time, so get ready to grab a tail!

Melvyn has set up the hubbly bubbly pipes just around the corner from the dance floor, where mew can unwind and relax on some sumptuous velvet floor cushions. The kitty droids will be ready to refill your nip supply whenever mew need it and deliver snacks right to your furbulously nipped-out and epically reclined location. 

The entrance foyer features litter cubicles for your convenience. We have separate facilities for girls and boys, with the left door designated for girls and the right door designated for boys.


It is essential to avoid wandering around the bunker and investigating rooms which don’t need investigating! As we do not want anyone getting lost or accidentally releasing the Magical Menagerie on Level 16 (or the Kraken.... again). Some of the magical creatures escaped again the other day, and we are not sure if all of them have returned yet, as we have been too busy organising the pawty to do a propurr headcount. So, if mew come across any weird and wonderpurr creatures, it is not due to the nip, or the number of beverages mew have consumed. 

And with that, I am headed to the bar. If mew would like a catnip beer, please feel free to join me!


We do hope mew all have an EPIC time at the rave, and if mew need to chill, we have allocated the Crystal Room as the zen-zone which is now located next to the nightclub; just head back out into the corridor, take a left, and it's the next door along, so mew can have a snooze, take five or just crash completely.

Thanks for coming, mew know how much we love to pawty and celebrate with all our supurr besties!

Fudge xx

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ~ Three In and One Out, Fudge's Floof Explosion, and Smiling Smooch **PLUS** SUNSPOT OF THE WEEK

Midweek News Banner ©BionicBasil® May 2023

Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

This week, the weather has been a mix of rain, wind, rain, a brief sunspot and rain. In other words, a typical UK summer! MOL

So let's look at some lovely sunny, scenic views in gorgeous Scotland.

This magical place is called Kinloch Hourn on Loch Beag, with the Hourn pronounced Horn, apparently.

To reach this amazing place is quite the journey; 22 miles along a very narrow, single-track lane that makes the Mewton Clawson single-track lane look pawsitively like a motorway! MOL

If mew'd like to see the single-track route, click here to visit Google Maps

The journey is a supurr twisty, turny, uphill, down dale, hairpin bends, and blind summits with breathtaking scenery. It says on the map that it takes approx 48 minutes. It took much longer as it's quite popular with cyclists, hikers and tourists, so there's quite a bit of traffic, but luckily there are lots of little pull-ins and lay-bys along the route, so vehicles can pass safely. 

The following photos were taken right at the end of the track overlooking Loch Beag, where we had beautiful weather while having another picnic.

And then the P.A. had to rescue a Highland Cow who'd got stuck on a gate!

Meet Hermantrude the Highland, he was purrchased in Fort Augustus and is now residing very comfortably at BBHQ, although Fudge is a little put out as he's not the only ginger any more! MOL

If mew'd like to see more photos of Scotland let us know in the comments.

Anyhoo, let's look at this week's top headlines.

 Three In and One Out

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Three In and One Out

It was raining the other day (for a change), so the P.A. had to move the cushions from under the gazebo, and Parsley decided he wanted to go outside.

He stayed outside while Fudge, Melvyn and Pandora were in the sitting room looking at him and thinking, what the fluff, dude, it's wet out there, mew maniac!

Smooch and Amber had the right idea, they were still in bed! MOL
