There's no better feeling than walking into a cool washroom at a bar or restaurant and seeing kick ass lighting or artsy AF wallpaper. It's like your insta feed knew you needed a new mirror-selfie. There's an art to taking a mirror selfie that involves a few elements. Lighting, the pout, holding your phone just right and any other artsy touches that add to the appeal of your snap.
Toronto has a plenty of good lighting to share with all of you. From a bathroom break during a night out with friends, to a breather escaping a brutal date during dinner, this city has everything you need to head to the washroom and get a few extra likes on a new mirror-selfie.
Next time you're in the market for a mirror-selfie, check out one of these places:
1. d-bar Yorkville // 60 Yorkville Ave
Not only is their lighting on fleek, the whole restaurant knows what's up. Located in the Four Seasons, d-bar pays close attention to detail. You will be treated like family in and out of the washroom.
2. Locals Only // 589 King St W
The infamous flamingo wall. You know this washroom even if you haven't been here. If you're looking for a chill night, this is your place to be. Locals Only is equipped with not one, but two bathrooms that will get you your mirror-selfie.
3. El Furniture Warehouse // 410 Bloor St W
