There’s nothing quite like chilling out, cold beer in hand, at your favourite pub. And now, you can enjoy your drink completely naked — if you’re in the UK, that is.

One of London’s oldest and liveliest pubs, Soho favourite the Coach and Horses, which was opened in 1847, has become the city’s first official nudist pub. That’s right, both customers and staff can now get their kits off while having a refreshing pint.

You can’t just turn up naked, however — according to British tabloid Evening Standard, nudity needs to be pre-arranged and consensual, and naked drinking sessions will only take place on specific dates if you’re keen.

Pub owner Alastair Choat told CNN Travel that they are planning to host their first naked drinking session this month.

“We are going to be planning, in June, a nude night,” Choat said. “[We] haven’t got the exact date yet, but that’s what’s going be happening — so that all these people phoning up wanting to get naked and have a pint in the center of Soho will be able to do so.

“To be honest with you, when you do these things, after 10, 15, 20 minutes no one notices anymore. It’s a bit like you go to a pub where there’s a band playing and you not very interested in it, after a while it’s just background music. If everyone’s naked it’s going to be hilarious, it will be very funny.”

What do you think? Do you think this is a fun idea? Would you go?
