Feruqi’s is already legendary for its Flaming Lamborghini, an adventurous cocktail that many locals consider a necessity upon their 21st birthday. But now, it’s becoming a well-known rest stop on the bar scene after the recent completion of a spiffy new bathroom remodel last summer.
“People come in here just to use the bathroom now,” says co-owner Matt Wiles.
Feruqi’s, which marks its 19th anniversary this year, used to have single-stall bathrooms, the condition of which is better left unwritten. Wiles says those stalls weren’t cutting it, so they closed off those commodes and built new ones off a hall on the other side of the bar. The new restrooms feature three stalls, steel doors, sleek stainless steel fixtures and classy scented hand soaps, like coconut-mango. Wiles and his family did the welding and painting themselves, he says. “Every time I walk in, it puts a smile on my face,” Wiles says.
