When customers enter the restrooms at El Centro, they’re greeted by two surprises. One, the sinks are metal basins and look like a throwback to the Prohibition Era. And when people approach the sinks to wash their hands, they may very well see the opposite sex right across the way! The unisex washing station, created by Brie Husted Architecture, turns the sink area into a social hub. “Most people are surprised when they spot the other sex washing their hands where a mirror should be!” says Leo Schmid, marketing and PR manager for Richard Sandoval Restaurants, which owns El Centro. The restroom only adds to the flair of El Centro, a popular Mexican restaurant in Washington DC’s trendy Georgetown area. The eatery is home to over 200 tequilas and mezcals alongside craft Mexican-inspired drinks. One time through the El Centro restroom, and you’ll never forget about those classic metal tubs.
