Opera Toilet

Sometimes what might not seem like complements become such because of location.  I came across a restroom in a Vienna underground station that had the sign “Opera Toilet” above the entrance.  Clearly, the City must believe that natural bodily functions and listening to arias are complements, at least for customers in this most operatic of cities, the residence of Beethoven, Mozart and many Strausses.  Presumably in Nashville now or soon, one will find the “Country Music Toilet.”  What other such complements exist?
