A new pop-up restaurant coming to central London this summer will give diners the option to eat in the nude.
The Bunyadi, which is opening in June for three months, will be split into clothed and unclothed sections, and even feature staff in the nude with certain body parts covered up, Time Out reports.
The concept is already wildly popular. When Business Insider first wrote about the restaurant on April 20, nearly 4,000 people had signed up for tickets; now there are over 28,000 people on the waiting list on the restaurant’s website.
Created by the pop-up company Lollipop, The Bunyadi will extend its naked theme to the menu, with vegan and non-vegan dishes made with all-natural ingredients and cooking methods, and served on handmade clay plates with edible cutlery, according to a press release from the event creators.
“The idea is to experience true liberation,” Seb Lyall, the founder of Lollipop, said in the release. “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 decor will also be stripped back, with bamboo and wicker partitions and earthy wooden furniture, while the space – which caters to 46 diners at a time – will be illuminated by candles, which are likely to provide more flattering lighting for those in the nude.
“Everything patrons interact with is bare and naked,” Lyall said in the press release.
Tickets will cost in the region of £55-65 per person, and include food and drink on a tasting menu. They will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Diners will have access to gowns, changing rooms, and lockers, where they can leave their clothes and their modern lives behind. For obvious reasons, photography is strictly not allowed.
