Naked Restaurant To Open In London


The Bunyadi, a clothing-optional restaurant, is reportedly set to open in London for three months starting in June.

The unusual restaurant will have both "clothed" and "unclothed" sections so diners are not required to go bare, according to TimeOut London. The eatery will be staffed by employees who are "naked with only some covering" (so be sure to tip them generously).

Customers will reportedly enter a changing room, take off their clothes and switch into a gown, which they will be allowed to keep on or drop while eating.

The Bunyadi said it is trying to avoid the modern world with "no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if [patrons] wish to," notes the International Business Times.

The dare-to-go-bare eatery will use a wood-flame grill to cook the vegan and non-vegan food (made with all-natural ingredients), which will be served to customers on handmade clay crockery and cutlery that can also be eaten.

The Bunyadi is owned by Lollipop, a company that is also behind ABQ London, a trendy cocktail bar that is inspired by the TV show "Breaking Bad."

Seb Lyall, Lollipop's founder, stated in a press release, according to International Business Times:

The idea is to experience true liberation. We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked.

The use of natural bamboo partitions and candlelight has enabled to us to make the restaurant discreet, whilst adhering to the ethos behind it. No doubt, this has been the most challenging project for us yet, which makes us very excited about it.

The restaurant's tickets will range between $78-$93 per person, Business Insider reports. The fee does include food and drink from a tasting menu. The tickets are going to be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. So far, nearly 4,000 people are on the restaurant's waiting list.

And, in case you're wondering, no photography will be permitted inside the restaurant, which holds a limit of 46 customers.
