Plenty has changed since the Britain's Victorian era ended at the turn of the 20th century.For one, the world has Starbucks now, so finding a toilet is a good bit easier than it was 150 years ago.But in 1800s England, making a place for Brits to do their business was a priority, and lavatories were built underground.However, secluded restrooms attract unsavory behavior, so most of the oldVictorian public toilets are closed now.But a handful of these Victorian structures have found a second life as trendy, underground bars.Following the success of its first bar, the now-plural WC Bars has announced plans to open its second location next month.Both bars make great use of thelovingly restored and remodeled underground toilet space.We've worked hard to create a welcoming place in an unexpected and unique space. No pretenses, no egos, just an honest offering with honest prices. We're all about everyone having a good time in a laidback, simple environment, Jayke Mangion,Cofounder
