I have a thing for beautiful bathrooms. There’s just something about a well-done bathroom that makes you feel like you’re getting a taste of luxury, a little escape from reality and just the chance to really enjoy your business, y’know what I mean?
Calgary is home to some fantastic design and architecture – and with that comes some very funky, chic, and hip bathrooms. If you’re looking for that place for the perfect selfie, then these bathrooms will really up your ‘gram. Here’s a look at some of the coolest bathrooms in the city:
Cool Calgary Bathroom #1: Bridgette Bar
Swoon! The bathroom at Bridgette Bar is nicer than my entire home (no lie). Beautiful teak furniture, woven textiles and bold patterns make this washroom a delight to be in. Even the brick wall façade adds to the cozy California style that Bridgette Bar is known for.
Cool Calgary Bathroom #2: Foreign Concept
Take a trip around southeast Asian depending on the bathroom stall you land in at Foreign Concept. These individual bathroom stalls feature different Asian cities like Seoul, Korea or Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam with sleek and modern amenities.
Cool Calgary Bathroom #3: Ricardo’s
Ricardo’s is probably the first bathroom I really took notice of because the designers took the time and effort to make this space just as funky as the rest of the restaurant. Feeding into the tropical setting, you’ll end up going bananas or flocking to the flamingos. Beautiful gold accents add to the sunny vibes in each room.
Cool Calgary Bathroom #4: Taiko Canteen
If you’re looking for a place to groove, then you’ll find that in the bathrooms at Taiko Canteen. The entire restaurant is a lovefest for 90’s jams and you’ll find that adoration extends to the individual bathrooms as well. You got your Notorious B.I.G., you got your Lauryn Hill (Fugees-era of course) or you could end up with Jay-Z. It wouldn’t be a cool Calgary bathroom without a neon light. It’s all good baby baby.
Cool Calgary Bathroom #5: Hawthorn Dining Room
Your girl loves a beautiful floral so this bathroom makes her so happy. The recently renovated Hawthorn Dining Room inside the Fairmont Palliser hotel has been given the decadent treatment and the bathrooms are no exception. I absolutely love the black background that makes the flowers burst to life in this beautiful bathroom.
