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.

Arlo Grey

The bathrooms at Line Austin Hotel restaurant Arlo Grey feature the Korean version of Cinderella playing over the loudspeakers, with the English translation spray painted on the walls. Chef Kristen Kish explained that her mother read the story to her when she was young.

Whether the M.C. Escher-like city in the men’s room or the bright, tropical flamingo print in the women’s room, the colorful wallpaper at the lauded Mexican restaurant is worth capturing.

Kitty Cohen's

Many, many selfies have been taken with the bright pink flamingo wallpaper at this ’70s-themed bar (in fact, Kitty Cohen’s once held a selfie fundraiser for Safe). Completing the room are sensual pictures of Burt Reynolds and a pinup model as well as the miniature chandelier hanging overhead.

Of course one of Austin’s most beautifully designed restaurants doesn’t scrimp on the bathroom decor, which has a dark blue and gold color scheme.

Aviary Wine & Kitchen

Both of the bathrooms at this neighborhood wine bar and restaurant are brightly colored red, one with cheerful cherries and the other with ... sharp implements? The external sign forgoes sexes for something gender-neutral (“Whatever, just wash your hands”), which is also appreciated.

The elegant black, white, and pale pink tilework from the restaurant is replicated inside the bathroom, alongside deluxe fixtures and plush seats.

Tillie's

It’s no surprise that the restaurant at the picturesque Camp Lucy, owned by local antique dealer Whit Hanks and housed in a Vietnamese town hall, has well-appointed bathrooms. The fish wallpaper is a fun touch.
