Masked rapper Casisdead, big fan of Patty&Bun and also a Black Card holder, is best known for his macarbre lyrics– an underground legend in the UK hip hop scene. He became good friends with us after we dedicated our ‘Pat Butcher’ special to his latest single at the time, ‘Pat Earrings’.
This led on to conversations about doing something more substantial together.. So we came up with the ‘Patty is Dead’ burger, and Cas was keen to create a mini feature film based around it. So, late one evening we shot the video – an eerie back alley scene of Shirley the food truck in an east end lock up. The video also featured radio dj and all round hero Yinka Bokinni who has featured in Cas’s videos before.

Having stocked Appleton Estate Rum from the beginning, we got together on a few events, and one day decided that creating a burger using their rum would be a great idea!

Chatting one day to the guys at Yard Sale, we dreamed of swapping ingredients and creating a Pizza Burger and a Burger Pizza! So excited about the prospect, we decided to make it happen. A little while later the Holy Pepperoni Burger and the Smokey Robinson Pizza were born. We sold the Holy Pepperoni Burger from all Patty shops for month , and they sold the Smokey Robinson Pizza from all of theirs.
Both were so good that each other’s customers demanded that they stay on the menus as permanent dishes!
We also did a limited edition tee shirt to celebrate the collab that we asked Tony Riff to design.

One of the most talented illustrators and graffiti artists we have met. We asked Tony to get involved having come across his work on the internet. So glad we was up for it!
His design was a collection of two tone burger related ideas across the back of the tee shirt in his classic illustrative style. Tony has since designed merch flyers for us.
We held a launch party at our old Redchurch Street shop too.
We love what Bowlcut do – He takes well known brands and twists them into street slang meanings. So the tee shirt design ‘Patty&BunDat’ was born! With the addition of the slogan ‘Eat In – Take Away – Bun the Rest’.
As well as the tee shirt we shot a little film to run along the burger we created together. The film had a Willy Wonka theme, Ooompa Loompas manning our Soho shop and making the food, and during the month customers could find golden tickets in their burgers to win a second super limited black and gold tee shirt.

We discovered The Skeleton Cardboard on Instagram and loved his style of work. Simple and stark designs, with a recurring Skeleton theme. He spent a couple of hours in our Richmond Road shop taking the atmosphere in while chowing down on a feast, and jotted everything down that popped out at him.
This then got translated into a tee shirt that perfectly represented his style of working, but incorporating everything that he saw in Patty&Bun.
Our first Tee Shirt collaboration.. Underground graffiti artists and purveyers of all things a little bit seedy.
They created the ‘Lurker Burglar’ Tee shirt design with the pun slogan of ‘Eat In – Take Away – Lurkers’.
We also got together and created the Lurkin’ Gherkin burger that ran for a month.
Oh, and we also threw a launch party at our old Redchurch Street shop!

Kayliegh is best known for her huge colourful floral murals across London. We fell in love with her work having discovered her on Instagram and seeing her pieces out and about, and just had to get in touch. Her take on our brand did not disappoint! Big bold colours creating a floral burger design with the word ‘Yummy’ flowing across it.
We held the launch party at our Old Compton Street shop where she adorned the walls and even the floor with her bold flower designs creating a mini Artista world! We also did the Artista Burger for the month.

With a shop in Peckham and a design and print studio in Lewisham, we met when we were introduced by The Lurkers and really got along. Not only were they our next Tee shirt collaboration, but they also started designing and printing our own merch.
Typical to their style of design, they went for a geometric 3D repeat pattern spelling out ‘Patty&Done’, obviously a pun on ‘Patty&Bun’. The tees were sold with limited edition stickers, and we also threw a launch party at our Old Compton Street shop where they put on a gallery of their works.

We put on a stage at Standon Calling Festival in the summer of 2018. We partnered up with The Duppy Share Rum to bring you the ‘Lost Island’ – Rum Shacks, burger van, and a weekend-long party hosted by house music dons ‘Slothboogie’.
The Patty&Bun stage at Wilderness Festival has become legendary amongst the Festival’s regulars. Over the years we have built up a reputation for not just serving up the best burgers around, but also throwing the best party around too.
During the day it’s chilled summer time vibes, and as the evening draws in the Patty&Bun Soundsystem DJ’s get the party going into the small hours.
Expect to see us there every year for many years to come.
