Public toilets. They have many uses, of course, most of them not very savoury. Until, that is, a few years ago when some bright-minded persons started taking over derelict or abandoned public lavs and repurposing them. First came Attendant, a cute coffee shop fashioned from a former gents’ toilet in Fitzrovia; now there’s WC, a wine and charcuterie bar in Clapham.
The latest element in the Clapham Old Town Regeneration Project, it still looks and feels like a Victorian convenience, but now offers a score of decent wines alongside cheese and charcuterie plates. There’s even a tiny outdoor terrace. We say: just the place to spend some pennies.
