“Best Design (Visual & Creative)”
If your date is lost in the bathroom, blame the reading material. We had to give best bathroom design up to Trappe Door, one of the most beautiful and well-thought-out spaces in Greenville. I mean, just look at those walls. 😍And if there were a category for best “moules frites,” they would win that too!
“Most Eccentric Potty Experience”
We believe in saving the environment, you know, reduce, reuse, recycle. FR8yard in downtown Spartanburg has championed the idea with these amazing shipping containers for bathrooms. Are we slightly obsessed with the eccentric vibe? Perhaps just a bit…
If Grateful Brew’s 1970s-inspired vibe wasn’t amazing enough, we just love these bright pink and orange-stenciled bathrooms that tie their space together (all flashbacks are free of charge). Rumor has it, one of GB’s very own did this design!
“The Most Gruesome Potty”
The reigning champ for the most gruesome potty in Greenville (for yet another year) is none other than the bathroom, the myth, the legend - The Greenville Army Store. Yeah, ‘nuff said.
“Bathroom with the Best Game”
Why not enjoy your bathroom visit? The Silo at RJ Rockers knows how to bring their game - word game in fact. Look up ☝️and you’ll know what we mean. And if you can still read the ceiling without falling, you’re ready for another drink!
“Best Bathroom for a Selfie”
Not only does Otto Izakaya have the best late-night sushi deals, they also have the best bathroom for taking selfies. It’s potty humor at its best when you let the room speak for itself with inspired statements to go with your wasabi grin.
“The Most Elegant Restroom”
Sometimes, you need to pamper yourself. We couldn’t have a fancy restroom category without giving Jianna a shout out. These ceilings are absolutely amazing, and when you’re tired of flipping through your phone, they are the perfect distraction when you’re trying to take care of business.
We love seeing public places provide resources and supplies for their customers, and nothing says “family dining” like having BOTH restrooms at Bobby’s BBQ in Fountain Inn stocked with diapers, hygiene products, and other supplies that make for such a helpful restroom experience for everyone. Thanks, Bobby’s!
“The Snazziest Throne”
Is it Cleopatra’s crapper? Did the Great Gatsby retire to these stalls? Get lost in the opulence of the art deco stylings of The Kennedy.
“Best Place to Take a Break”
The beautiful view of Main Street accompanied by elegant, modern decor is the perfect combination for an afternoon break. Taking a minute while on lunch to pop into NOMA Square is totally worth it.
We want to thank these fine establishments for inspiring us to talk about the things nobody wants to talk about. Whether it's a brief respite from everyday stress or a defcon five emergency situation, be sure to flush with flourish!
