Applauded for its “practicality” and raved about for its stylish décor, the women’s washroom inside Steamworks Brew Pub in Gastown has the women gossiping. Literally. Owner Eli Gershkovitch says since women quite often go to the washroom in pairs to catch up on gossip, it only makes sense to include an oversized stall featuring two toilettes and a shoulder-height partition so ladies can continue their conversations uninterrupted. The semi-private setting is popular with parents too, who say trips to the loo with the little ones are more convenient thanks to the washroom’s open concept. The washrooms feature automated, hands-free conveniences as well as polished stone and glass mosaic infinity tiles from ceiling to floor. The space is finished off with marble countertops, stainless steel fixtures and sleek wall sconces. One might just argue the life of the party is in this loo!
