The men’s room at Bleacher Bar has a unique view of Fenway Park through a one-way mirror. It’s the closest I’ll probably ever get to the Red Sox.
* Correction – I’ve since learnt it’s not a one-way mirror – it’s simply a window (which makes it even more awesome!) Thanks to kgcohen45 for pointing that out.
Before I left on my trip to Boston I received a recommendation from a kind Redditor to visit Life Alive, a cafe in the unassuming city of Lowell, MA, famed for its vegan fare, soul-nurturing atmosphere, and a very well-tended zen garden bathroom.
It was definitely worth the hour long journey north of Boston to witness for myself what may well be the most peaceful amenity in the whole of north America, not to mention the delicious Goddess Bowl and Loco Coco smoothie that I dined on.
If this doesn’t put the ‘rest’ into restroom, I don’t know what does.
A very good point regarding recycled rolls:
I was quite surprised to find this book on the basin next to the loo, serendipitously open on the page of my birthday. August 15: Sometimes Ignorance Is Bliss.
Seriously, what an amazing bathroom. Kudos to all at Life Alive for creating such a pleasant atmosphere. If you’re ever in Massachusetts you should drop by – there are currently locations in Lowell, Cambridge and Salem (the Lowell branch is the one with the garden bathroom).
Here are a few final snaps of the gorgeous cafe itself:
A pretty decent view from the urinals at N Seoul Tower
A happy row of portaloos with a fantastic view of the water, underneath the northern end of the Harbour Bridge
Beautiful views of the Harbour Bridge from the public restrooms alongside Lavender Bay wharf
Beautiful views of Darling Harbour from the Barangaroo development site
A tropical feel outside the window of the public toilets at Civic Park, North Sydney
