bullfight or The Bullfight or bullfighting


Explanation:
If this is the name of a restaurant, it would likely be allusive to bullfighting. Whether it should be translated "bullfight," "The Bullfight," or "bullfighting" depends on the structure and context of the sentence as translated into English.

Fiesta Brava=Bullfighting


Explanation:
You could research how Hemingway described the Fiesta Brava in his book "Death in the Afternoon".
However, I would not translate the name into English if it is for a Restaurant, instead I would explain the term. Like one restaurant here in Canada, called ¡Caramaba! and then the explanation of the word.

bullfighting


Explanation:
If you mention "la fiesta brava" to any Spaniard, he will immediately understanding "bullfighting." To insert the word "party" would only be confusing. The word "fiesta" covers a vaster range of meanings than "party." If you are having a party, you usually refer to it as a "reunion". If it is a "bash", you might call it a "guateque", which was the name in Spanish for Peter Seller's film, "The Party."
