Counting House

111 Corcoran Street, Durham

(919) 956-6700

With all the furor over North Carolina's bathrooms, Counting House, the restaurant inside Durham's 21c Museum Hotel, just had to make a statement against HB 2 (which it did), as the proprietors of the most experimental lavatories around. The toilets stand like dares in transparent glass cubes on an elevated concourse plainly visible from the bar. The trick is that the glass becomes opaque when you turn the lock. It's very cute, but let us ask you something: How many times have you forgotten to lock the bathroom door at a bar? Hang out around the stalls late-night and you'll likely witness some unwitting radical body art.
