This is the amusing sight that greets anyone looking for ‘the facilities’ at The Drift Bar, London. Not knowing that there were further doors beyond this one I stare blankly at it for a few seconds. To me this screams ‘Toilets for the pre-ops, gender confused, and possibly weekend cross dressers.
I recall when bars in New York liked to play “guess-the-gender” with toilet doors. This craze then spread worldwide. I recall one venue had their toilet door handles with a wavy edge… and the other with a jagged edge. That was your only clue! (Hint: Think door of kings and queens crowns turned sideways)
This trend hasn’t vanished, visit any branch of The London Cocktail Club and the female toilets are opened by pulling on the two chest high ‘knockers’… and the male toilets by pulling on the waist high ‘knob’…
