While France is casual about dress and to get naked or just go topless is a civilized affair. There are many spots where it is acceptable to go topless and France boasts beaches, campsites, and spa centres meant to be enjoyed in the nude.
The famously clothing-optional country is breaking new ground in naturism.
According to local newspaper Le Parisien, the first nude restaurant in Paris opened to the public on Friday—and local naturists are already big fans of the new spot.
The new eatery is named O’Naturel and is located in the City of Light’s largely residential 12th arrondissement, on Rue de Gravelle.
The view into the restaurant is blocked from the street and the neighbourhood’s residents.
Now Paris has opened its arms for its first-ever naked restaurant aptly named O’Naturel which allows diners to dig into their food while going completely naked. Once entered, diners are directed to a cloakroom where they can leave their clothes and head to their tables. Unlike Bunyadi, London’s first nude pop-up restaurant, tables aren’t curtained off for privacy. The layout is that of a normal restaurant.
The restaurant allows 40 guests at a time and offers standard French dining – steak, fish and more. There are options for vegan too. Not to forget the wide range of posh wine, in case you need the courage to strip off.
The restaurant doesn’t allow passers-by to catch a glimpse of the diners as the view is blocked off.
Though the concept of the new restaurant is new in France, it is obvious for the restaurant to have a positive response.

Imagine you’re playing pick-up basketball in a neon,’80-themed video game complete with brightly coloured walls and mind blending geometric designs instead of a random blacktop court.
That’s the reality at one street in Paris. The court is sandwiched between a pair of apartment buildings, and, with support from Nike, has been completely redecorated with a brand new, snazzy aesthetic look.
Riding the court of its traditional blocks of primary colours, space has been covered with gradients of fuschia, dark blue, canary yellow and burnt orange with the floor being made over with a vibrant grape colour.
Even the basketball net has been jazzed up with a bright pink base.
He is a man of many talents, with above par acting skills, on-time humour, and the main thing, the flirting skills. Yes, we are talking about the only King of the country (and probably in the world), the King Khan. His admirers would know about many of the talents, but there are things which his fans wouldn’t know about him.
The hidden talent you ask? His love affair with doodles during his free time. But why’s that King Khan’s this ‘secret’ leisure activity have now attracted all the media lights?
If media reports are that something to go by, then the 20-year-old doodle which was made by Shah Rukh Khan will be sold for Rs 2 Lakhs. He doodles the idea of French capital which Shah Rukh Khan thought while he was en route to Paris in 1997. He doodle consists of Bastille, the Concorde, Voltaire, the French Revolution, the French connection, King Kong climbing the Eiffel Tower, a pair of lips depicting the French kiss. He also gave the doodle a Bollywood tinge by adding the famous track ‘Tu Mera Hero No 1’ and wrote, ‘Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do’ on the paper. Signing off, Shah Rukh Khan wrote, ‘In Paris, do as the Indians do.’
The doodle by SRK is a part of film journalist-critics collection and will be reportedly sold for somewhere between Rs 1.2 lakhs- 2 lakhs.
“The rare sketch is more like a doodle-cum-drawing of Shah Rukh’s visit to Paris. It provides a unique insight into the mind of a cinematic superstar in the making. Though estimated conservatively between Rs 1.2 lakh to R1.80 lakh, it is expected to sell for more,” a source in the know told a leading daily.
In a preventive measure of possible terrorist attack, France administration has ordered the administration to build an 8-feet (2.4m) tall bullet-proof glass around the base of the world most popular Eiffel Tower. The official also said that the wall would also replace the fences that were set-up around the tower for the European football tournament in 2016,
The order came in after a possible terrorist attack that country may face, addressing his plan to the media, Jean-Francois Martins, the assistant mayor for tourism, said “The terror threat is a matter of concern in Paris and the most vulnerable sites, The Eiffel Tower, must be the object of special security measures”
Eiffel tower is the most popular tourist destination in the world, attracting more than 6 million tourists a year from around the world.
The proposal will be examined by the city’s sites commission and then needs approval from the environment ministry. It is part of a $3.2 million project announced in January to modernise the 128-year-old tower.
No timeline of any kind is given by the administration for the completion of the work.
In November 2015, jihadists conducted multiple attacks throughout the French capital that left 130 people dead.
Last July, 86 people died when a truck plowed into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the southern city of Nice
Paris is set to have an official nudist park after officials voted in favour of the plans on Saturday night.
The park could open as soon as next summer, AFP reports, and two main wooded areas on the outskirts of the city, the Bois de Boulogne and the Bois de Vincennes, are being considered as possible options.
Naturism is popular among some Parisians but public nudity is forbidden unless taking place in specified areas and can carry a penalty of €15,000 (£13,050) or up to a year in prison.
Paris currently has a swimming pool on the 12th arrondissement that allows nudity three evenings a week, but many naturists have been asking for larger spaces in which to roam free of clothes.
“There were 150 of us there on Wednesday night,” Denis Porquet, a member of the Nudist Association of Paris (ANP) told 20 Minutes. The 372-people strong group is often forced to hire other venues such as bowling clubs and spas to be able to host private events for its membership.
The proposal for a nudist park was put forward by the Green Party of Paris and Deputy Mayor Bruno Julliard said the new space would likely be “near a lake, in a regulated setting so that there is no threat to public order,” AFP reported.
It was reported on September this year that there are plans to open the park and now the committee has approved the decision.
