Best bathrooms

Going Out Guide staff  |  Updated 11/08/2014

What a relief it is to find such a steady stream of splashy restaurant and museum bathrooms in our area! We couldn't pick a favorite, so let's just say they're all number one.


Comet Ping Pong

Washington, DC

Log cabin or commode? You decide! The doors to the stalls are so well-hidden you'll need to feel around a little bit for the entrance.


Lyon Hall

Arlington, VA

Who's that good-looking person in the bathroom mirror? Wait -- that's not a mirror! The bathroom's see-through sink area gives you a chance to awkwardly attempt conversation with the opposite sex while you wash up.



Washington, DC

You'll laugh so hard at some of the newspaper headline slip-ups on the wall, you might accidentally ... Oh wait, no, you'll be fine. Because it's a bathroom.


P.J. Clarke's

Washington, DC

In the wide world of bathroom receptacles, we haven't found any wider than the nearly six feet tall, stately slabs of custom-made porcelain in the men's room here.
