There's nothing like sitting down for a cold pint in one of the oldest and liveliest pubs in London to soak up the atmosphere.
And now you can do it completely naked.
The Coach & Horses in the bustling Soho district of the city have begun to welcome customers and bar staff to get rid of a refreshing pint.
The café has been a symbol of the area since the 1800s and offers everything from vegan food to cockney singing around a buffet piano.
It has been described as the & # 39; last bastion of the traditional pubboozer & # 39; and has thirsty for the columnist of Spectator Jeffery Bernard and journalists of the magazine Private Eye.
The historic Soho pub Coach & Horses has released a bare calendar or regulars who inspired the pub's decision to get a nudist license and tried to save it from a takeover by Brewers Fuller & # 39; s
The inn became notorious under the land rule of Norman Balon, who during his 63-year tenure was the & # 39; most rude & # 39; was in London.
Punters now have the option to wear everything after the company has received a nudist license.
Landlord Alastair Choat says it is all part of the community atmosphere he cherishes in his pub – which he may lose.
& # 39; There is this – in times of real need and despair and trying to defend something of value – great British tradition of stripping, & # 39; said Choat CNN Travel.
Choat explained that the pub had to request special permission from the local authorities for gamblers to go naked, similar to an entertainment entertainment center for adults.

He said that every nudity must be arranged in advance, in a consensual environment, so that someone is looking for peace.
& # 39; You must have the right staff, because the team must naturally feel comfortable with it & # 39 ;, he says.
& # 39; But to be honest, if you do these things, no one will notice after 10, 15, 20 minutes. It's a bit like going to a pub where a band is playing and you're not very interested, after a while it's just background music.
The pub was once known as the & # 39; rudest landlord of London & # 39 ;, Norman Balon, 63 years before he was bought in 2006 by Choat together with Greg Stewart and Melanie Krudy.
Employees and regulars were both involved in launching the & # 39; Beauty and the Beasts of Soho Calendar & # 39; with regulars leaving the pub, with 10 percent of the profit going to the British homeless charity Centrepoint
The idea for the nudist license started with a naked calendar, created by Choat and the team to contribute to the fight against brewer Fuller & # 39; s trying to finalize a takeover by not renewing the lease of Choat.
Fuller & # 39; s wants to create its own management that, according to a petition to save the pub, will make it a & # 39; soulless chain outfit and deprive it of its unique character & # 39 ;.

When the calendar started, Choat was flooded with phone calls from naturists around the world asking whether the pub now welcomes nudists

Alastair Choat (pictured with daughter Hollie), together with Greg Stewart and Melanie Krudy, bought the Coach from the long-standing landlord of 63 years of Norman Balon, in May 2006.
The former landlord Norman Balon also became famous – among other things because of his self-proclaimed title of "the most rude landlord in London".

Alastair has ensured that the pub has retained the great atmosphere and ambiance that has been built up over the past 77 years. Little has changed in the acclaim of thousands of regular customers and the local community of Soho.
The interior of the pub was recreated on stage for the biographical piece about Jeffator Bernard Jeffrey Bernard & columnist Jeffrey Bernard is unwell.
