The Bunyadi, London's clothing-optional restaurant, has big plans to launch this September on the other side of the Channel.
If you happen to live in Paris, or you're planning a trip some time soon, the Bunyadi naked restaurant's latest news is likely to interest you. The famous London restaurant, where guests can dine in the nude, is planning an expansion to the French capital, with a new branch opening in September.
Fine dining in the nude
Even before its official opening, Bunyadi, the first nudist restaurant in London, was met with so much interest that it had thousands of people on its waiting list. Due to unexpectedly high temperatures, the London pop-up restaurant will close its doors on July 31, a month ahead of schedule, to resettle in Paris for a period of two months.
"We have built a community and we want to share it with Paris now. We close the restaurant permanently in London," said Bunyadi's founder Seb Lyall.
The food and drinks menu of the London and Paris restaurants will differ slightly but the concept remains the same. The venue offers the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities like chemicals, artificial colours and, obviously, clothes.
Diners will be able to choose between a hall where everyone is naked (including the waiters) or a "traditional" room, where people are dressed. If you choose the nude option, you'll be given a robe and slippers and led into a candlelit room where you may remove the bathrobe when you feel comfortable enough.
Brits that enjoy eating stark-naked: don't worry! Seb Lyall will be back in town soon enough. The entrepreneur plans to open London's first naked private members' club after the Bunyadi pop-up is done with its French tour. Until then, a trip to Paris for some nudity will have to do.
