The makers of the hugely popular ABQ, the Breaking Bad-inspired cocktail bar, are pleased to bring you a new dining experience: The Bunyadi – London’s first naked restaurant.
After successfully attracting more than 65,000 cocktail aficionados to mix molecular drinks in the dystopian world of ABQ, Lollipop wants to take diners to a beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life.
With great attention to detail, The Bunyadi plans to use only the most natural, home-grown ingredients to envelope its patrons in a Pangea-like world, free from phones, electric lights and even clothing (not compulsory)!
Guests will enjoy wood-flame grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery and edible cutlery, in a space void of the industrialised-world’s modern trappings. They will dine under a canopy of candle lights, creatively partitioned with bamboo and wicker, as they recline on wood-hewn furniture.
“We believe 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 idea is to experience true liberation.” Seb Lyall, the founder of Lollipop.
The Bunyadi pop up experience is set to take place in central London. The venue is specifically designed to be split into two sections (“pure and clothed”), and has a capacity of forty-two. There is already a waiting list of over 2,000 people, and Lollipop plans to open the restaurant to the public in June.
“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”.
Opening: June 2016
Duration: Three-month. Tickets will be released on first come first served basis.
