World's Greatest Public Bathrooms

Phil Walters

Urilift Pop-Up Toilets, Europe

These stainless-steel cylinders are Europe’s solution to a pervasive (and odoriferous) problem. “Indiscriminate urination. You come across it in just about every city, town and village” is how Urilift’s promotional video describes it. Timed to rise from the ground during the wee hours, peak times for staggering revelers, they serve as convenient, easy-aim receptacles. And the floor contains a drainage unit in anticipation of the more poorly coordinated (or inebriated) visitors.

Where to Go: Urilift is in Cambridge Circus in London, Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam, Shaftesbury Square in Belfast, and other cities around Europe.
