The M50 Creative Garden is a Shanghai hub for art studios, galleries and other creative agencies, with representatives from countries around the world. I was pleased to find this washroom with shiny golden walls a couple of floors above the impressive Island6 Arts Center:
And here are a couple more pics of various artworks from around the complex:
During my quest to source a list of interesting restrooms across Shanghai, I came across an establishment simply named C’s Bar. It’s a university pub southwest of the city centre and as a fan of dirty, gritty, graffiti-covered dive bars, I must say this was one of the best I’ve ever been to. Get a load of these filthy restrooms:
Here’s a gallery of pics from around the rest of the bar to give you an idea of how it looked. I visited on a quiet night with only 5-6 people in attendance which gave me the perfect opportunity to explore its dark, tainted hallways.
I would 100% drink here again.
Just down the street from the hostel I stayed at on Shanghai’s Yunnan South Road was this construction site, complete with toilet at the canvassed entry. I’m pretty sure it was only used as a garbage bin and not as an actual toilet.
I took the elevator up 423 metres to the 94th floor Observation Deck of the Shanghai World Financial Center, the city’s second-tallest skyscraper, where I found some loos with a superb view of the streets below. The picture from this pissoir was certainly a sight to behold.
Of course I continued up to the 97th and 100th floor observatories which both delivered phenomenal views but as a hunter of spectacular toilets, nothing could compare to the window above those urinals.
10 Wusheng Road, Shanghai: the site of the largest public toilet facility in the city at 230 square metres, and one of the few standalone double-storey restrooms I’ve seen around the world.
A super cool restroom at Japanese restaurant Posher which I saw in Montreal. They put a lot of effort and detail into this one, it was a real treat to the senses after a great sushi dinner.
The women’s room was pink with a naked man drawn on the door and the men’s room was blue with a naked woman.
The video of my adventure to the Qianyue building in Taiwan last year has just been published!
For more details and photos about this incredible site see my previous blog post here: https://toilography.com/2018/03/18/the-abandoned-qianyue-building/
This grimy restroom at Vanessa’s Dumpling House has been top of my list of loos to see in New York City for a few years now and I’m very happy to have finally made it here. Amazing toilet and pretty good dumplings too 🚽🥟
