NUDE EATERY CLOSES AFTER FAILING TO PUT BUTTS IN SEATS
Paris’ first nude restaurant will be shutting its doors after failing to attract clothing-optional customers.
According to The Local, O’naturel opened in November 2017 as a way to cater to the rising popularity of nudism in France.
While the concept of a clothing-optional restaurant seemed cheeky to some, it failed to garner a regular stream of customers, forcing the establishment to reveal it will close in February.
“It is with great regret that we announce the definitive closing of the O’naturel restaurant on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019,” owners Mike and Stephane Saada said in a statement to The Local. “Thank you for having participated in this adventure by coming to dine at O’naturel. We will only remember the good times, meeting beautiful people and customers who were delighted to share exceptional moments.”
O’naturel featured a minimalist setting with a menu featuring French bistro cuisine. There is a strict list of rules for diners — such as a no-tolerance policy to voyeurism or exhibitionism, and cellphones and cameras must be left in a cloakroom.
