We have exciting news about London’s naked restaurant…

There’s no point denying it; London is undergoing something of a naked renaissance (or a renakedssance) at the moment.

From the city’s first-ever naked rooftop bar, to Get Naked’s bi-weekly naked club nights in the capital, there have been plenty of new and exciting ways to show off your birthday suit in all its glistening and wobbly glory.

Perhaps the most exciting news of all was that of London’s first-ever naked restaurant, The Bunyadi - a pop-up dinery that ran for three months between June and August this year.

Bunyadi’s ethos was very simple: keep everything natural, with absolutely no artificial flavourings, chemicals, electricity, phones, or clothes whatsoever.

And it was an immediate hit, garnering a mammoth waiting list of over 46,000 curious customers keen to eat raw food in the buff as soon as humanly possible.

So it makes sense that they’re bringing it back on a permanent basis.

Speaking to Big Hospitality, Seb Lyall (aka the founder of the restaurant) praised the attitudes of his diners, saying: “The quality of that community was amazing.

“Now it’s my job to bring it back.”

Lyall is now on the hunt for a permanent London site for the naked restaurant, which will again feature décor straight out of a “luxury spa” – think soft candlelight, bamboo partitions, fluffy white robes, and cocktails named after the elements.

He hopes to firm up the plans in the next three to six months, which would mean that the restaurant – all being well – should open to the public sometime in 2017.

If you’re keen to dine in the buff, you can register your interest at TheBunyadi.com.

And, for those still on the fence about getting their buns out for Bunyadi, Lyall has a few words of encouragement for you.

“Imagine a place where you go out for a nice meal and we encourage you to dress down rather than dress up,” he explains.

“It’s liberating.”
