Your civic doody: Vote for LEX’s best bathrooms

Although Lexington didn’t make it to Cintas Best Restroom awards finalists — we’re taking matters into our own hands.

If you have to go, you might as well do it in style. LEX may have not made the cut for Cintas’ annual America’s Best Restroom contest, but we won’t let our city’s best bathroom contenders go to waste. We flushed out six spots for you to vote for in our own contest — who will take the porcelain throne?

Clerestory at Greyline, 101 W. Loudon Ave.

The bold florals on this jungle-themed wallpaper are beautiful enough for bathroom bridal portraits.

The Apiary, 218 Jefferson St.

This venue’s bathroom is iconic for its serene lighting and unique wallpaper. Be sure to take a selfie in the distressed mirror.

The Blushery, 825 National Ave.

If you thought the froze and floral walls of the shop were fun, wait until you see the soft pink and gold marbling in the bathroom.

East End Tap + Table, 333 E. Main St.

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted with the playful wallpaper that comes from the mind of Italian artist Piero Fornasetti.

Lost Palm, 941 Manchester St.

If you get lost, the smoking monkeys in this art deco bathroom may be able to point you in the right direction. We cannot be held responsible for their reliability.

21c Museum Hotel, 167 W. Main St.

From the lobby, head down the spiral staircase to the right. By hitting the button on the mirror, you’ll “call the mirror” in the neighboring bathroom to share a friendly wave. Best enjoyed with friends.

Vote for your favorite porcelain throne.
