A Bathroom Tour of Boston

Stall-by-stall through 33 of the city's most distinctive restrooms
By K BONAMI AND GUSTAVO TURNER  |  September 5, 2008

Face it -- there is someting about living in Boston that drives people to drink. A lot. And while old demon alcohol is doing unspeakable things to your brain cells, liver, and dignity, the water it uses as its host makes its way through your addled body in search of a porcelain conduit to the sea, to the sea, to the open arms of the sea.

But bar bathrooms are much more than mere chambers of bolidy relief. They also provide a welcome haven for an array of private activities that, for whatever reason, must be conducted away from the bustle of curious patrons, bartenders, and waiters, and the distracting din of TV sports, bands, DJs, and jukeboxes.

This, then, is our visual survey of some of the most transited Bar Bathrooms of Boston. We hope you'll have a good time reminiscing over it, mounting it over your own toilet, or even playing some kind of perverted game of drunken Bingo ("You did what in there?!?"). Download a copy of the poster, suitable for framing, at the end of this slideshow.
