John Lewis also.

Its 2017. Why should the council be spending precious resources on things that most people wouldn't use. This is not the bad old days of backyard outhouses and communal public baths. Every house has facilities.

If you are out and about you will have access to hundreds if not thousands of publicly accessible facilities all over the city.

If you are shopping all the major department stores and Orchard Sq has one. If you use any bar/restaurant or cafe they will have to have one by law. If you are travelling through the city both interchanges and the station has them. If you are visiting a business, every office block has them. If you visting a public facility, the town hall, all council offices, the library and galleries have them. If you are visiting a cinema or theatre, all of the facilities have them. If you are visiting the university or college buildings all these facilities have them. If you are a tourist, all the hotels have them.

If you are in the city and not crossing any of the above paths then quite frankly what are you doing here?

Back on Topic, I think (subject to being themed and priced right) a bar would do well in that location. Its just close enough to both ends of the city to catch trade and would give quite a unique location and style to the other offerings. This sort of conversion of former public loos has worked well in the past in other cities. No reason why it shouldn't here.
Brill post! Totally agree with you.
I would use the toilet facilities in a bar because it gives me a very good excuse to order a glass of wine whilst there.

I think it's great.

Bringing otherwise useless space in a great location back into use.

Why don't you give it a try first?

True. It's better than it being nothing.

Well, if it gets a decent following may I suggest 'The Peed Pooper' as an appropriate name.
