The Bunyadi aka. London’s naked restaurant

Time to let it all hang out ‘cos the guys behind ABQ are opening London’s first naked restaurant and the list is bare long. Last time we checked it was at 33K.  The concept’s all about being freed from the trappings of modern life, which apparently are clothes. And we thought restaurants that banned iPhones were being a bit harsh.  Just try not to spill hot food on your lap. OUCH.

Coming soon!

ABQ

We’re talking DIY cocktails with a chemistry set inside an RV – it all makes sense if you’re a Breaking Bad fan. Smuggle in your spirit of choice and cook up something badass. When it finishes in London, it’s then au revior London and off to Paris baby.

6pm-12pm (open Thurs, Fri. Sat til End of May 2016 – but it’s officially turning perm by the ned of the year)
