They were the ultimate loos with a view – after dancing the night away at Manhattan’s Boom Boom Club, revellers could empty their bladders while taking in sweeping views from the 18t floor of The Standard Hotel.
Except everyone could see them too.
Yes, if you happened to spend a penny (or more) at the club in recent days, you may well have given passer-bys an eyeful.
It’s thought clubbers were under the impression the glass was reflective on the outside, giving them privacy while affording them spectacular views.
But as pictures of guests mid-wipe emerged, it quickly became evident this was not the case.
Belinda Langdon, who visited the club with her father, told The New York Daily Times: “It’s pretty creepy.
“The people taking pictures are pervy. You just hope nobody recognises you on the street.”
As titillating as it may have been to witness strangers on the toilet, the show is now over, with the hotel hastily installing black curtains to give guests some necessary privacy.
A manager told online newspaper: “They were doing renovations and they forgot to put them back up.”
Being that this is the same hotel which recently launched an ad campaign featuring a woman urinating on a rug in front of a man, we're slightly skeptical.
