Park Bruges

5801 Bryant St., Pittsburgh, PA 15206
Grade: A

While at first glance I found Park Bruges' men's room disappointingly plain, a closer inspection revealed beauty in the subtle details. The white-on-white color scheme is somewhat generic, but the restroom's decorative touches -- the light fixture above the mirror, the trim where the wall tile meets the painted wall, the modern urinal and top-mounted sink designs --  offer a classy appearance nonetheless. The facilities are clean and temperate, and the soft lighting (from the fixture above the mirror, as well as from recessed bulbs in the drop ceiling) lends a comfortable ambience. And then there is, of course, the Xlerator hand dryer, otherwise known as the greatest invention of all time.

The one slight drawback was the roll of toilet paper sitting on the back of the toilet, though that might have been a way to get around the somewhat frustrating toilet paper dispenser (detailed here).
