Amazing Bathrooms

by Sophia Banay

The flush: R-Bar, Brighton, United Kingdom

The lowdown: Brighton is awfully posh these days, but the lads at R-Bar, a gay joint downtown and sister venue to Revenge nightclub, aren't afraid of pushing a few buttons. Hence the giant, glossy-lipped, mouth-shaped urinals. Some might find the lips sexy, though we find the huge white teeth a bit disconcerting—and then there's the unsettling resemblance to Mick Jagger. In any case, we wish R-Bar better luck than Virgin Atlantic, which tried to install the same urinals—called Kisses and made by Netherlands-based company Bathroom Mania!—in the Clubhouse lounge at JFK a few years ago. The airline changed its mind after a raft of complaints. Who knew the citizens of Brighton were more open-minded (and openmouthed) than those of New York City?
