A few months we talked about a first water bar in America that was opening in Minneapolis and if you thought that was unusual what do you think about a restaurant where everyone is naked? No, this is not a joke and “The Bunyadi” will be opening in London very soon – June 2016.
Well, the idea is quite simple – the restaurant is free from phones, electric lights and clothing. The owners of this idea wanted create a space, which would, in their words – “revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.”
Here is what they say in the official press release:
With great attention to detail, “The Bunyadi” plans to use only the most natural, home-grown ingredients to envelope its patrons in a Pange a-like world, free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (not compulsory)!
Guests will enjoy wood-flame grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery and edible cutlery, in a space void of the industrialised-world’s modern trappings. They will dine under a canopy of candle lights, creatively partitioned with bamboo and wicker, as they recline on wood-hewn furniture.
“We believe people should get the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colours, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if they wish to. The idea is to experience true liberation.”

The founders want to stress that being naked is not compulsory as there will be two sections in the restaurant – “Naked and Pure” & “Non-Naked”. And like any other restaurant these days “The Bunyadi” will have options of vegan and a non-vegan tasting menu cooked on wood fire.
You probably thought “who in the world would do this”, but let me tell you something: according to their official website there are 38,888 (as of May 30th 2016) people on the waiting list already! Unfortunately, not everyone will able to have this “pure” experience as the project will only last for three months and tickets will be released on first come first served basis.
Oh and by the way, no photography is allowed.
