Where’s the Restroom? You’re Dining In It

Written By Scott Joseph On April 29, 2013

I’m not sure how this fad eluded me, and I’m not sure I wouldn’t have been happier for it to have continued that way.

Apparently turning toilets into restaurant spaces is a thing, especially in London. According to this article published at CNN Travel, the first toilet-themed restaurant, Modern Toilet, which opened in 2004 in Taipei, now has franchises all over Asia.

In London and environs, the Attendant, a cafe with counter spaces fashioned around ornate urinals, is a popular dining spot, and Story, a new restaurant from Tom Sellers, opened in a toilet space.

I shouldn’t be surprised. I recall a restaurant in Phoenix, back in the early ‘80s, called Fibber McGee’s that had a table called the Royal Flush, a four-top where all the seats were toilets (lids down, thank you). It was the most-requested table in the restaurant.

So what’s the attraction? Would you want to sit on a toilet seat while eating, or be surrounded by white porcelain urinals? And how do you keep someone who’s had too much beer from using the most convenient of conveniences?

If this craze comes to Florida, I’m calling dibs on the name Skip To My Loo.
