Our grandmothers may balk at the idea of taking a picture in the bathroom (a public bathroom no less, *clutches pearls*), but millennials know how to turn any environment into content. Here, a few of the water closets around town with the perfect glow and whimsical details to help you snap an Insta story before the bill comes.
Hotel Clermont’s buzzy makeover came courtesy of New York-based Reunion Goods & Services, which decked out the hotel, from roof to basement, in luxe prints and fabrics. Tucked into the back of the hotel’s basement brasserie, this tiny bathroom includes a tableau of lush Georgia peaches—a dazzling burst of color after the hallway outside, covered with the same fruity print but in black and white. Snap a selfie between mimosas at brunch. 789 Ponce De Leon Ave., 470.485.0085, @tinylousatl
The crimson glow in the Blade Runner-themed bar may not be a surprise upon entering the bathroom, but does provide a perfect moment for a boomerang-slash-photo op without the line that queues in front of the popular signature sign up front. 1170 Howell Mill Road NW, Ste. P-10C, 404.500.4737, @littletroubleatl
The Krog Street Market tavern has no shortage of playfulness. The jest continues into the restroom, wallpapered with lemurs, squirrels, toucans and a badger who’s a bit of a lush. Krog Street Market, 99 Krog St. NE W, 404.458.4534, @ticonderogaclub
The bathrooms at this upscale bowling alley may seem unassuming at first. But as you’re washing your hands you may notice something—or someone—behind the mirror. Nothing but air and conviviality separates the sinks for the men’s and women’s restrooms, making a mirror selfie not quite as fun, but your boyfriend can earn his keep by taking a fun boomerang of you “through the looking glass.” 737 Miami Circle NE, 404.814.8736, @thepaintedpinatl
