Experience True Liberation at London’s First Naked Restaurant


London pop-up restaurant, The Bunyadi, is going to be opening a ‘naked restaurant’ this summer for three months.

Restaurant goers will be treated to a ‘clothing-optional’ space which is also free from phones, electric lights and where you can “revist the beginning where everything fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.”

Fear not, the Bunyadi will also have a section for fully clothed customers and even have a changing room for customers seeking to strip down for the full experience.


Meaning ‘fundametnal’, ‘base’ or even ‘natural’ in Hindi, The Bunyadi is the latest endevous from Lollipop, the company behind the Breaking Bad themed cocktail bar in Shoreditch. Owner Seb Lyall said that the purpose of the naked restaurant is to “experience true liberation”.


Lyall also added that, “We have worked very hard 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”

As for the cuisine, the team are keeping the menu a closely guarded secret, apart from the proposition of both vegan and non-vegan tasting menus, all cooked on wood-fire.

The Bunyadi is set to open in June 2016 for three months and tickets will be available on a ‘first-come first-serve basis’.
