In case you missed, a nude restaurant, The Buniyadi, will soon open its door to public in London. And recently, a businessman, Ben Spier, transformed London’s iconic red phone booth into a mini restaurant called Spier’s Salad.

These red telephone booths were common in London for a long time and a trip to London is not complete without posing next to one of these. However, the arrival of mobile phones has made them obsolete. Even the operators of these telephones booths are not interested in maintaining them. Most of the time the phones are out of order. Although some of the telephone booths have been converted to offer unusual and interesting services, the city still has 48,000 of them.
