My favourite Sydney urinals

I love going into swanky
places and using their facilities
for free. Here are the Top 3
places to piss in Sydney:
(3) The Sydney Opera House
The room glows like a hollow white candle,
the recesses where toilet paper hangs
are lit from within. The doors are opaque,
almost green, like some glass water jugs.
(2) The Museum Train Station
At the corner of Liverpool and
Elizabeth Street, southwest corner
of Hyde Park. You walk down and turn left
where the railings are wood and wrought
iron and the ceilings are high. It feels
old and British. You piss in a long
stainless steel trough.
(1) The Sofitel Wentworth Hotel
On Philip Street near Bank, this exterior
struck me immediately: an austere curved
brick with a copper curtain that buckles out
at the awning entrance. Take the escalator
to the second floor, turn right at the
black piano. Silvered coffee tiles,
urinals like ceramic buckets sunk
diagonally on the wall. Chrome faucets
with drains near your shins -- to rinse
shoes? Manual sink faucets that you
can turn to cold and drink. Excellent
hot hand dryers below the steel paper-towel
dispensers. A separate swinging
door inside with eight toilet stalls.
