Charmin installs this bi-level space annually between Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, and the design changes every time. Last year’s had a winter wonderland theme, with 20 log cabin stalls, cleaned individually by an attendant after each use and stocked, of course, with the sponsor’s products. Those who have completed their business can head upstairs to the Duracell Power Lounge to recharge a laptop or cell phone, while kids fiddle around in the Wii lounge, climb up the Charmin treehouse, or tap out the steps to the “Charmin Potty Dance,” playing in a loop on 17 flat-screen TVs.
Where to Go: 1540 Broadway at West 46th Street.
