775 G St. NW, Washington D.C. 20001 A sexy bathroom The phrase seems like an oxymoron until you step into the mens room at Proof. Named one of Zagats sexiest bathrooms in the country, the bathroom received a 9 on Zagats Sex-o-meter. The sink fixture, a sculpture of a black and white female nude, is the main attraction. Proof didnt skimp on the ladies room either. Be sure to check out the elegant design of pinks and hearts. (Photo courtesy of Proof)

A sexy bathroom? The phrase seems like an oxymoron until you step into the men's room at Proof. Named one of Zagat's sexiest bathrooms in the country, the bathroom received a "9" on Zagat's "Sex-o-meter." The sink fixture, a sculpture of a black and white female nude, is the main attraction. Proof didn't skimp on the ladies' room either. Be sure to check out the elegant design of pinks and hearts.

1200 Bladensburg Rd. NE, Washington D.C. How would you feel about a squatty potty The coverage of Bardos reopening hasnt been about the brewerys goal to have more house beers on tap at once than any other brewpub, but about its installation of squat toilets in the ladies rooms. We basically did an informal survey, and about 20 of the people liked squat toilets, so we are going to put in four regular and one or two squat toilets, says Bill Stewart, El Jefe of the Bardo. Now its up to the plumbing inspector to approve the plans. (Digital rendering courtesy of Bardo Brewery)

How would you feel about a squatty potty? The coverage of Bardo's reopening hasn't been about the brewery's goal to have more house beers on tap at once than any other brewpub, but about its installation of squat toilets in the ladies' rooms. "We basically did an informal survey, and about 20% of the people liked squat toilets, so we are going to put in four regular and one or two squat toilets," says Bill Stewart, El Jefe of the Bardo.
