London Gets First Naked Restaurant, Waiting List 10,796...
The Bunyadi — named after a Hindi term for ‘base’ — will have a naked and non-naked section
I don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that’s always bugged me about eating in restaurants it’s having to wear clothes. Why stain them, when you can imbibe as the Romans might, naked, with sauce and wine spilling all down your body?
This is presumably the gap in the market The Bunyadi is hoping to fill, apop-uprestaurantcomingtoLondon this summer for three months. The Bunyadi — named after a Hindi term for ‘base’ or ‘natural’ — willhaveanakedandnon-nakedsection, along with a changing room to cater for the former.
There will also be food, you’d hope, though it’s not immediately clear what will be served.
The pop-up — which at the time of writing has a waiting list of 10,796 — is the brainchild of Lollipop, who were behind the similarly lucrative Breaking Bad-themed cocktail bar.
“The idea is to experience true liberation,” founder Seb Lyall told the IBTimes.“Wehaveworkedveryhard 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 Bunyadi will offer Londoners an unconventional dining experience
