Paramour // Along with its posh atmosphere and majestic view, Paramour has more to uncover than quotes on pillows or signature cocktails being mixed behind the bar. Since 2015, Paramour’s men’s and women’s restrooms have been reason enough to visit this rooftop bar. For the ladies, a neon pink “peep show” reflects in the mirror making it perfect for as many bathroom selfies as you’d like. Cheeky high-gloss photos of Tom Selleck in a Speedo and Burt Reynold’s 1972 Cosmopolitan centerfold give the restroom a scandalous vibe. The guys can compare business cards (“Oh my God, it even has a watermark”) inside the men’s room where screenshots of Christian Bale as American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman and his victims are found. 102 9th St., (210) 340-9880, paramourbar.com.
