Bar patrons shocked by bizarre bathroom feature: ‘Be careful ladies’

From the waist up, women can be seen inside the cubicles, seemingly unaware they are being watched.

A visitor to a popular bar in Auckland is warning other women to “be careful” after making an alarming discovery involving the ladies’ toilets.

Outside Headquarters bar at Viaduct Harbour, TikTok user Celp333 noticed the women’s bathrooms are completely visible to anyone outside the venue – with individual cubicles built directly in front of large windows.

One woman appears to be in a state of undress, presumably wearing a jumpsuit which requires removal to access the toilet.

Viewers of the TikTok were horrified, including one woman who had recently used the toilets and had no idea she had been exposed to strangers on the ground below.

“OH MY GOD. I literally wondered this when I was there but was like surely it is tinted,” she wrote.

"I noticed this on Friday night! It’s ridiculous," another said.

“This is so disgusting!!!” someone else added, while dozens responded with “wtf".

"That’s so messed up and unsafe. I’m actually disgusted," one woman wrote while another vowed to never go there.

Bar owned by controversial mayoral candidate

Headquarters is owned by Leo Molloy, a businessman and former Auckland mayoral hopeful, who told the NZ Herald the bathroom issue was a "design fault".

The club was formerly O'Hagans pub before it was taken over by Molloy. When it was operating as O'Hagans, the windows had been frosted but Molloy confirmed they had recently been replaced with clear glass.

“It was deemed a good idea at the time to have a loo with a view but based on the negative feedback we will frost them out," he told the paper.

Yahoo News Australia has contacted Headquarters and Molloy for comment.
