Since drinking alcohol in a bar inevitably leads to a trip to the rest room, it’s important that they’re clean, stocked and functioning. Some bars’ bathrooms are a step beyond the bare minimum, and even offer an interactive experience, like the one at The Safe House, which was voted as having the best bathroom in the city.
The Safe House’s ladies’ room is infamous for its mammoth naked photo of Burt Reynolds with a metal heart hinged over his unmentionable. Should a curious gal move the heart to see what’s underneath, the lights flicker in the entire bar / restaurant, letting everyone know that she tried to sneak a peek.
As for the mens' room, don't be fooled by the two doors. Behind one, there's a brick wall and the sign "Whoa!" The other door leads to the actual loo, where there are two stalls aptly labeled "FBI" and "CIA."
The Safe House is a spy-themed / James Bond bar and restaurant. Patrons need to know a password to enter through a fake bookshelf.
