Best Public Restroom - 2003
The "Closet Can" at the Chase Park Plaza
Okay, the Chase Park Plaza's lobby bathroom isn't technically a public restroom. But, really, who's going to stop you from an unannounced pit stop in the luxurious "closet can" as long as you look like you belong there? No one, that's who. Which is why, next time you're in the Central West End, you should intentionally load up on the liquids and hit the ultraprivate stall a few short steps from the Marquee Café near the residential/entertainment complex's Lindell Boulevard entrance. "Stall" is actually a bit of a misnomer for this waste depository. With its full-length, locking door and marble floors, this privy actually earns the title "throne."
