Clothes-Optional Pop-Up Restaurant Is Coming to London
The Bunyadi, a pop-up restaurant opening in London in June, has an unusual dress code: clothing optional. Yes, you read right.
The minds behind ABQ, a Breaking Bad-inspired cocktail bar, are now bringing London its first naked restaurant. The concept behind the restaurant is to “take diners to a beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life,” according to a release.
The company wants to create a ‘Pangea-like world’ “free from phones, electric lights, and even clothing.” Guests will be served wood-flame grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery under a canopy of candle lights, and partitions made of bamboo and wicker will give guests their privacy.
“We believe people should get the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if they wish to. The idea is to experience true liberation,” said Seb Lyall, the founder of Lollipop, the company behind ABQ and The Bunyadi.
The restaurant will be separated into two sections, pure and clothed, and there will be a changing room for guests who select the ‘pure’ option. It will be open for three months, and tickets will be released on a first come, first served basis. At the time of publication there are over 11,300 people on the waiting list.
