Sun’s out, buns out.
Yup, there’s a mid-August heatwave on the horizon – so what better way to celebrate than by heading to London’s new naked rooftop bar?
Set just in front of Big Ben, the bar – which sits 60ft above the streets of London – boasts unparalleled views across Parliament Square, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, and beyond.
Once up there, you can shed your clothes and work on getting the all-over tan of your dreams. But, if lying still on a deckchair isn’t really your scene, there’s plenty more at the pop-up venue to keep you entertained; think trampolines and swingball, not to mention that well-stocked bar area.
If you’re body confident, this probably sounds like a nudist’s dream come true – so it makes sense that there is, of course, a catch.
The terrace has been set up to promote NOW TV, where they fully intend to give people “the freedom to choose your TV and broadband without being tied down”.
We guess that going clothes-free is probably a deep and meaningful metaphor for going contract-free, right?
The naked rooftop bar will be open on special dates throughout the summer, but if you want to let it all hang out, you’ll need an invite from the organisers.
Just shoot them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name and age, and they’ll pop your name down on the waiting list.
It goes without saying that it’s only available to those who are over the age of 18.
The news of this naked rooftop bar comes hot on the heels of London’s first ever naked restaurant, The Bunyadi.
Here, they confiscate your phone, provide you with a bathrobe, and serve you up a five-course vegan or non-vegan menu at £69 per head.
Jono Hope, the head chef at Bunyadi, told The Standard: “The food is supposed to be as naked as the diners.
“Due to the restrictions of the concept, I have had to be very creative with what we serve.
“Expect lots of pickling, smoking, preserving in both the vegan and non-vegan options. It is an unusual menu that will push people.”
All of the food at The Bunyadi is served raw, which means that there’s no chance of any hot spills on your delicate areas during dinner.
