Scottsdale's OdySea quarium was named as America's Best Restroom winner by the Cintas Corporation in 2017

Instead of the typical mirror over the sinks, Odysea installed a giant acrylic window leading straight into the Shark Waters. 

While washing your hands, you could be looking at a 9-foot lemon shark right in the eye. 

Liberty Market

The Liberty Market was a nominee for America's Best Restroom in 2012

This old grocery store has been remodeled and transformed into an urban bistro. 

It has five unisex stalls designed by the owners and a member of the kitchen staff. Each stall has its own unique design and an accompanying playlist to match the design.  

Scottsdale Performing Center for the Arts

The art center was also a nominee for America's Best Restroom, this time in 2011.

Its restrooms have lights that actually change colors and are meant to reflect the skies of the Sonoran Desert. It was designed in 2005 by Phoenix architect John Douglas.

Gallo Blanco Cafe at the Clarendon Hotel

The urinals in the men's restroom are said resemble the pursed mouth of Scarlett Johansson. These urinals are basically an open mouth lined by blood red lips. 


The restrooms in this downtown Phoenix restaurant are located on the second floor, down a narrow, mirrored hallway.  White doors with no handles are the entryway to the restrooms.  Soap is dispensed from generic ketchup bottles.
