Guinness World Records

I never know where a Toilography photo will show up next!

This week’s surprise is the 2018 edition of Guinness World Records, they have a whole page on world record toilets and two of my pics made their way into the section for the Tallest House Shaped Like A Toilet and First Toilet Theme Park. I may not have a record in there myself (yet!) but it was pretty hilarious to stumble across the pics published inside.

This is Mr Toilet House which I visited in Suwon, South Korea a few years ago (check out the original post here). It’s a marvellous museum to visit and includes an outdoor exhibition of toilets from across history. A very worthwhile record indeed 🚽🏠

By the way, Guinness, uh, is there a record for the most amount of cool toilets visited?

Vegan toilet

Lov on Montreal’s de la Montagne serves some pretty delicious vegan & vegetarian fare and I lov (ha!) that the theme continues when you enter the men’s room.


Double toilet at Cafe Resonance

It always makes me laugh to see a double toilet and I know of two classics in Montreal (the other one being in the ladies room at Candi Bar).

Here at this popular live music venue, Cafe Resonance, you can bring all the support you need as you go about your business.


Restaurant Mozza: still the best disco toilet

One of Toilography’s favourite restaurants in Montreal is Mozza Pâtes et Passions. This was my third visit in just as many years – I keep returning not only for their open & experimental take on Italian cuisine (where else can you get linguine with porto & goats cheese on the menu?) but for the ultimate dessert: the famous DISCO TOILET!!

I’ve seen a number of disco toilets over the years but this fabulous loo at Mozza remains my #1 🙂


Don’t use this toilet if you’re epileptic

Here at La Graine Brûlée in Montreal’s Gay Village there are actually signs on the restroom doors warning people with epilepsy to see staff at the counter before going inside! The strobe lighting is on point inside their artful, dimly lit stalls.


Montreal’s amazing Candi Bar

I paid a much-anticipated return visit to the very sugary Candi Bar during my weeklong trip to Montreal. The restrooms (and cocktails) at this bar are among the sweetest in all of Montreal.

Firstly, get a load of these 👄 urinals:

Aren’t they adorable?!

If that’s not cool enough then how about this circus-themed stall in the mens room?

And finally in their unique ladies room you can even bring a friend!


Artistic porcelain at Cinko

Toilography had been to Cinko before but here’s a few snaps from my most recent visit. Its one of my Montreal favourites because of the awesome black & white artwork painted on the porcelain.

I remember last time I was here the throne was cracked so it looks like they’ve since replaced it with a shiny new one!
