Houston's 10 Best Bathrooms to Bang In
If the sultry vibe, provocative art on the walls and endless supply of red wine at Boheme don't get you going, then maybe the leather couch in the private men's room will. Of all the washrooms on this list, this is the only one we found with furniture. All three of the restrooms (including the unmarked unisex room in the middle) are private, so feel free to explore. Bonus points if you figure out how to use the high-tech Japanese toilets.
Every single service-industry vet polled mentioned "the middle bathroom at Anvil," quite specifically. Some even offered stories of having to eject patrons found sneaking a quickie in the single-occupancy bathroom. "Swingers, man. They used to come in all the time," offered one former bartender. "You'd look up and two of them are gone and sure enough...in the bathroom."
1. The Pass & Provisions
Photo by Katharine Shilcutt The Pass and Provisions literally tied itself for first place with it's not one but two star bathrooms.
One of my favorite pastimes is sitting at the bar at Provisions and watching patrons discover the small unisex bathroom for the first time. "There's a condom machine in there!" a preppy brunette in a sleek Brooks Brothers dress giggles as she straightens her pearls. "Oh, no way!" her friend retorts, visibly blushing. When it flusters the girls from The Young Republicans Waco Chapter, you know it's a swank bathroom.
"I'd do it in the other bathroom, too," quipped a friend of the bathrooms in the main dining room. "Who doesn't want to get it on to Julia Child?" (Audio of the late celebrity chef's cooking show is piped into these bathrooms. That voice.) The large main bathroom looks like BRC's unisex locker room got sent to finishing school. Complete with five private stall-rooms, this is the Maserati of washrooms; it's just that sexy.
In addition to having damn sexy bathrooms, a good portion of this list also functions as a damn fine place to have a drink as well. Admittedly, the Galleria area, Washington Avenue and Upper Kirby bars are absent here but I couldn't find anyone who actually drinks there and I myself haven't been to a Washington Avenue bar since I was dragged to Addix by a certain assistant music editor who shall remain nameless.
