An extremely specific aspect of restaurant dining or going to bars with friends I somewhat miss is the “bathroom report.” You know, someone being the first friend to use the bathroom at a bar or restaurant and asking “what’s the bathroom situation like?”. It’s always a pleasure to provide a positive report to the table if you’re the first. I don’t know what it was but… I just had a yearning to document some of the coolest Philly restaurant/bar bathrooms I’ve come across (wish I could include Cheu Noodle Bar, RIP). And as you’ll see below, I have a propensity of partaking in a mirror pic when encountering a “cool” bathroom.
And it looks like I haven’t been the only one interested on writing about the topic:

One of Philly’s most infamous.
Gibson gril vibes.
