Historic Stasiu's Urinals

A palatial art deco restroom. 

The late, great Stasiu’s Bar may have been sold and overhauled into the more polished Stanley’s Bar Room as of a few years ago, but the new owners still had the good sense to keep around one of the building’s most historic elements: the urinals in the men’s bathroom.

Over 100 years old, these 5 foot tall art deco-style marble monuments are still in complete working order. Pulled out of the now defunct West Hotel in the 1940s, it’s rumored that at some point Al Capone once relieved himself in one of these beauties.

Stop into Stanley’s for a round of beers (they have 32 craft brews on tap) and maybe a bite to eat (homemade beer battered mushrooms) but whatever you do, don’t forget to make a stop in the historic bathroom before you leave. Many women have been known to make a quick dash into the men’s room for a peek.
