Waiting list for UK’s first naked restaurant already at 12,000

The Bunyadi 1

A naked pop-up restaurant is set to open in London this summer and the waiting list for the venue already stands at nearly 12,000 names.

Created by Lollipop, The Bunyadi – named after a Hindi term for ‘base’ or ‘natural’ – will open for three months this summer. There will be both a naked and non-naked section to the restaurant.

Aimed at those wanting to experience liberation, the restaurant will offer a ‘secret Pangea-like world, free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (optional),’ and invites guests to ‘revisit the beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.’

Founder Seb Lyall said he wants customers to experience true liberation.

“We believe people should get the chance to enjoy andexperience 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 dea is toexperience true liberation. The Bunyadi pop up experience is set to take place in central London. The venue is specifically designed to be split into two sections (“pure and clothed”), and has a capacity of 42.”

The Bunyadi 2Guests will enjoy wood-flame grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery and edible cutlery, in a space “void of the industrialised-world”, according to the company.

“We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked. The use of natural bamboo partitio ns 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,” added Lyall.

Tickets are being released on a first come first served basis. The restaurant said gowns, changing rooms and lockers are provided, but photography is banned.
