Lolita Bar Hates Bathroom Vandals; Takes Passive Aggressive Action

Posted on: April 30th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Today in local dives taking themselves too seriously, we present Lolita Bar at 266 Broome Street. The bar doubles as an art gallery and also boasts a cramped performance space in the basement (i.e. “Tell Your Friends“), but its downfall has always been the single unisex bathroom. One bathroom for the entire drunken mess of people. One bathroom that attracts enough graffiti to prompt drastic passive aggressive greatness from management.  You’ll love this…

Lolita Bar is sick of patrons writing all over the walls of the head, and opted the path most traveled by posting the best letter ever.

A message to our guests —

Please refrain from writing on the walls of the bathroom. It costs us valuable time and money to repaint the walls, time and money we would rather expend towards providing our guests with tasty refreshing drinks, better DJs and a safer environment within the bar.

You’ll notice we exhibit artwork from local artists in our space. If you feel the need to express yourself creatively in an artistic forum, please ask for the manager to inquire about the possibility of displaying your artwork with us.

Thank you very much for understanding.

The Management, Lolita Bar
