Restaurant Bathrooms Worth a Visit
It’s official: Restaurant bathrooms are having a social-media moment. With quirky decor, crazy soundtracks, and objects and art to gawk at, you’ll be happy to excuse yourself.
A looming holographic cobra pic (which looks great in selfies) hangs on the wall of one of the unisex restrooms at Seattle's Dino's Tomato Pie. The other room changes themes often and has featured flashy disco balls, walls filled with poetry and more.
A Trip To The Beach
Whether or not nature calls as you're cracking open a claw at Brooklyn's Red Hook Lobster Pound, visit the WC. The circular room feels like a visit to the seashore, complete with an umbrella lighting fixture, '80s-style beach chairs and the sound of crashing waves piped in.
Loud & Proud
The decor at Latin-influenced steak and seafood spot Barbacoa Grill in Boise, ID, is bold. Like, dark-purple-walls-and- flaming-torches bold. Each stall of the pink ladies' room is adorned with shoe art, while the copper-walled men's room features multiple cow skulls.
Cozy Noodles & Rice, a Thai spot blocks from Chicago's Wrigley Field, is a haven for kids and kids-at-heart. Check out the 600-plus Pez dispensers lining the lavatory walls. Look for popular characters like Garfield, Snoopy and Lisa Simpson. Just don't expect any candy—they're all empty.
