At the moment Nude is closed. A sign at the doors gives hope for a reopening?!

Since 1999 Bono’s brother Norman Hewson has been running Café Nude, and since then more branches have been opened, e.g. in Dublin airport. Right next to Nude used to be the Italian restaurant Tosca, also owned by Norman Hewson, though it was shut in August 2000 in order to look after the more successful Nude chain. Today Tosca’s old rooms are inhabitated by Café Twenty-Four.

Before Norman Hewson opened the serious Nude here, it was the location of Mr. Pussy's Cafe De Luxe. This cabaret café was owned by Bono, Gavin Friday and Jim Sheridan, and hosted by drag queen Mr. Pussy. Mr. Pussy's Cafe De Luxe can also be seen in one of U2’s videos, namely 'Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me', in which a sign saying 'Mr. Pussy' is briefly visible. Nude offers good food, such as freshly pressed orange juice, pasta or burritos.
