Shorty’s: Madhouse Bathroom!

shortysmadnessShorty’s has been a punk Belltown haven for years now.  Kickass pinball tables to eat and drink on, great pinball (Medieval Madness always has sharks waiting for next game), classic Hot Dog menu with veggie dogs even, and boozy slushies that have a kick!   Great place to see the freaks on a late night!

The Bathrooms maintain the carnival madhouse theme and even include a nasty port-a-potty scent.  It’s as grimey as a bathroom can come: pungent and dirty. On the positive side it’s well stocked everytime I’ve been there!   Graffiti has taken over all areas to add to the charm. The best part about this bathroom is the pumped in carnival music to help you get in the mood!  The feeling that scary clowns might enter at any second is present!


The swinging bathroom door gives just enough privacy to do one’s business and lets the walker byes get a small glipse of the users back! shortysdoorshortysswing

This long time Seattle punk institution makes for a great divey stop in Belltown!   shortystoiletsshortystoilet

Canon: The Bathroom Bar Has Been Set

Canon: The Bathroom Bar Has Been Set

There is no bathroom like this one in Seattle, and would be amongst the best National bathrooms lids down! Canon has set the standard. Canon is already amongst the classiest of bars in the Jet City with a elite bar staff and the classiest drinks.
But now the bathrooms at Canon are slick, brilliant and entertaining. Decorated with fancy liquor bottles in great cages.


Upon entering the bathroom, your presence triggers an old fashioned decorated speaker playing classic radio talkies. Old Ghost stories or the Postman Only Rings Twice crackling just like it would in the 20’s. You might just be enticed to staying in the can a little longer! 20130923-193625.jpg

The Hurricane: Holy WTF?

The Hurricane: Holy WTF?


I’ve yet to find a more dumpy bathroom in any Seattle establishment (seen worse in Tijuana, China,  India and Florida). There was no door, boxes to crawl over, exposed wall and pipes everywhere.  The sink wasn’t working on this particular day, and the toilet was gnarly.  One can imagine what lives in here when it gets slow at night.  The stench was horrible.  One would think with the quality of food served at the Hurricane, the bathroom would be kept well with all the use it gets.  This is one to stay away from hell.  It is indeed “Unique”!
