Naked dining company plans events in Bristol pubs and eateries

After the sell-out success of its first gathering this week, events company Dine Naked Bristol is planning a second “inclusive” dinner that promises to be a “positive, life-affirming experience”.

Dine Naked Bristol, run by Will Bryson who is also responsible for organising Bristol’s annual naked bike ride, encourages people to enjoy a meal with their clothes off in a “safe and friendly environment”.

The first event took place this week at pizza specialist Flour and Ash, which itself regularly hosts life drawing classes.

Attendees must abide by the Dine Naked Manifesto which stipulates that there be no photography, swinging, voyeurism, exhibitionism, sexual comments or activity during its events.

The company describes itself as inclusive and “welcomes women, BAME, young, LGBT and people with disabilities”.

It is holding a second dinner, this time at the Greenbank pub in Easton on 20 March, which has already sold out. The company plans to host more events around the city in the coming months.

Speaking to the Bristol Post, Bryson said: “The media often show a narrow, air-brushed view of what people’s bodies can look like so too many of us end up with a negative self-image.

“We want to challenge that. Dining naked is the perfect way to try it – with the benefit of getting to eat good food in friendly places.

“It’s a safe, friendly place to try nudity without fear of being judged”.

The Greenbank’s general manager Liz Heyes added: “We’re proud of the diversity of community events at The Greenbank.

“Naked dining is a new one for us, but it seems like a great idea and we’re delighted to host”.

Admission costs £14 which includes a £10 discount off your food and drink bill.

In October 2016, it was announced that London’s first ‘naked’ restaurant, The Bunyadi, was to return with a permanent site. Meanwhile, in Paris, a nudist restaurant called O’naturel opened in the12th arrondissement last year, where customers are encouraged to disrobe before dinner.
