Bored & Hungry began to sling burgers and fries on Saturday, with the restaurant accepting Ethereum and ApeCoin as payment.
Bored & Hungry: The Birth for Bored Ape Yacht Club based NFT Restaurant
Owning a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT means a holder has the rights to that image, and holders can use their apes at their convenience. In this case, Kevin Seo, Andy Nguyen, and members of the Bored Ape community decided to open a popup restaurant using Bored Ape #6184, and Bored & Hungry was born.
Spread across 1,700 square feet, the restaurant was devised by food entrepreneur Andy Nguyen, who is well-known for his exciting food concepts.
In March, Nguyen spent about USD$267,000 to purchase Bored Ape #6184 and two Mutant Apes to receive access to the IP ownership rights and community granted to holders of the NFT.
As expected, crowds started lining up on 7th Street with people from different neighborhoods gathered around to check out this epic Nft restaurant.
The Bored & Hungry NFT restaurant will be open for about 90 days. In partnership with Houston rapper Bun B’s Trill Burgers and SoCal vegan fast-food concept Beleaf Burgers, Nguyen and his team will be offering free meals to Bored Ape Yacht Club holders and free burgers to Mutant Ape Yacht Club holders. Verification of tokens will happen via token gating.
Both Seo and Nguyen hope that the curiosity and enthusiasm surrounding NFTs can help the restaurant compete against franchises like McDonald’s that share the Street.
