Roost in Northampton is another hipster paradise and the bathroom is peppered with a bunch of unique touches. Love the eyelashes and features on the emergency lights. Someone carved “HEY BABY” into the wooden baby changing station which I thought was kind of sweet as graffiti goes. Great rustic vibe with wood and rust, clean…a nice place to refresh. Strange insertion of the end of a wine bottle into the wall over the door. I checked the other side hoping for the front end of the bottle or, even better, some kind of surprise jutting out. To my disappointment, it was just another bottle end. I asked the cashier if he knew what that was about, but he didn’t.
In the alcove where the two bathrooms are located is a cool wooden chair and tons of ads and business cards tacked to the bulletin boards…lots of photographers offering their services, and also a queer lawn-care company. We’re in the happy valley, people.
