Nudism is a movement that definitely divides opinions. On the one hand, supporters think it’s a nice that everybody could just be free and learn to accept their bodies for what they are. On the other hand, others think there’s some things that are better left to the imagination and some people you’d really rather not see nude. I mean, imagine seeing your Grandma with no clothes on! Traumatic stuff.
Well Paris isn’t the kind of place that cares what the haters say and it’s always ahead of trends, no matter how unusual they might be. This is why you won’t be surprised to hear that Paris has opened it’s very first nudist restaurant. Leave your clothes at the door and let’s take a look inside!
The restaurant is named O’Naturel (because what else would you call a nudist restaurant?) and it can be found down a quiet side street in southwest Paris. If you’re not sure where to find it, look for the only restaurant on the block with a closed curtain, used to give the diners some privacy. I think the curtain is a good move, can you imagine trying to eat your dinner in the nude while people walk past and stare at you? You’d feel like you were in a zoo!
O’Naturel was the grand idea of businessmen, Mike and Stephane Saada, who are brothers. When they realised that Paris was a popular tourist destination for nudists, they came up with this winning idea. Well, if you’re going to be nude on the beach, why not be nude whilst you eat dinner as well? Just be careful with that hot food!
When you walk in the front door of O’Naturel you take off your clothing and leave it in a cloakroom along with your mobile phone. This is to prevent people from taking sneaky pictures of the guests while they eat. You’re then provided with slippers to wear while you’re in the restaurant, although women are given the option of leaving their heels on. It’s reported that women make up 40% of the restaurant’s customers.
