Outside The Loop Radio

Thanks heaps to Mike Stephen for inviting me onto Chicago’s Outside The Loop Radio for a chat this morning!

For those of you who tuned in, feel free to browse through the photos I took while I was in Chicago last year. They really were impressive washrooms… some of the best I’ve seen in the world. If you have any suggestions for interesting toilets in Chicago that I missed, I’d love to hear them in the comments section below.

Also be sure to subscribe to the blog or follow me on Instagram – you never know, I might return to Illinois again one day soon…

Have a great day!

Come take a seat

Come take a seat at Filter Cafe’s very homely restroom. You can use the chalkboards to scribe all kinds of messages to fellow toiletgoers while you’re there.

Punch House

For the final bar I visited on this particular night, I present to you Punch House on W 19th, complete with chalk board walls for all kinds of drunken ramblings. In my state of inebriation, I scribbled ‘TOWNSVILLE REPRESENT’ (my hometown), plugged the toilography.com website and drew a picture of a cat.

Club Foot

Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I came across a shrine to Elvis in the mens room at Club Foot.

The Empty Bottle

The deeper into Chicago I travelled, the better the toilets kept getting. Welcome to The Empty Bottle in Ukrainian Village. It’s hell loud, ridiculously divey, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a washroom as grungy as this one.
