The Preservation Pub - Knoxville, Tennessee

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from The Preservation Pub in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Preservation Pub, located on Market Square, is well know for its amazing beer selection, live music, great bar tenders, and now (we hope) for this fantastic toilet.

The Toilets of the World Team stopped here on day one of a 36 day, 12 000 mile long road trip during which we hoped to come across some interesting toilets. Finding a Where the Wild Things Are themed toilet on day one, not to mention ever, meant the trip was already a success.

We found a comfy booth and drank some of the many beers the pub has to offer while examining the unique decor and making frequent trips to the bathroom just to make sure the toilet still existed.  This was back in 2010 and we really hope it's still there.

The Preservation Pub includes three levels. A dark and smoky first floor with booths and a long bar counter. A non-smoking second floor (referred to as the SpeakEasy) with more bathrooms, and a smaller bar. Then a 3rd level roof deck called the Moonshine Roof Garden which is the first space of this kind in the area.

Thank you, Preservation Pub. This is toilet art at is best. The rest of your establishment was great too.

The Kettlehouse - Missoula, Montana

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from The Kettlehouse in Missoula, Montana.

The night that the Toilets of the World team ended up grilling steaks at Misty's Trailerhome on Rainbow Road, we had started our tour of Missoula at The Kettlehouse.

The Kettlehouse is a small microbrewery and taproom, opened by Tim O'Leary. It serves some of the most interesting and tasty beers that the team has ever come across. You'll just have to go there, or trust us. One example of the innovative spirit that seems to drive Tim and his team, is the delicious "Old Bongwater Hemp Porter". This rich porter is made with 1/2 pound of hemp seed per 16 gallon keg. It tastes like heaven.

When we visited, the toilets at The Kettlehouse were clean and had enough interesting posters, notices and writings on the wall to keep us interested as we emptied our tanks and made room for some seriously amazing beer.

Thanks Tim and the rest of the Kettlehouse team. You've got some skill.
