The Bum Bum Room


Many people assume that the floor to ceiling windows in the toilets of the plush Boom Boom Room nightclub in New York City are reflective on the outside.

They’re not.

You’re sitting on the toilet in a New York hotel minding your own business, when all of a sudden someone standing outside on the street waves at you. And they are taking photos. Restroom users at the Boom Boom Room club on the 18th floor of the the Standard Hotel are completely visible from the street below as they do their business, thanks to 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows. The toilet-sitters get wondrous skyline views.

Everyone else sees the whole of the moon.
