Bathroom selfies can be a serious matter for some, and tons of Austin bars and restaurants are feeding into the insanity. With creative wallpaper, art, and even furniture, dedicated selfie-seekers are spending inordinate amounts of time near the loo.

From the elegant, hynotic tilework in the WCs at June’s, there’s a wide variety of backdrops for every kind of Instagram aesthetic. This update adds the Austin-centric murals at Lenoir, tropical prints at Suerte, shiny wallpaper at Irene’s, a graffiti-ed bedtime story at Arlo Grey, and more.

Here are the spots where people are bathroom ‘gramming most frequently. Luckily for all of us in Austin, most people are leaving the toilet out of it.

If there’s a memorable restroom missing from the map, let Eater know in the comments or through the tipline.
