Elton John’s old bathtub


Well… Last Friday after work, we went out for dinner, to a place called the Happy Rock Grill. Had a nice dinner, paid, and then I went to the bathroom before leaving. Well, on the way back, I noticed this massive golden thing in the back of the restaurant. Strange, I said to myself, it looks like a golden bathtub, under a glass plate, with chairs around it.
Had a closer look, and the tag at the corner said, in English, Spanish and Catalan: Elton John’s personal bathtub, 1994.

It seems to be what’s left of the Museum of Rock, which used to be next door, and is closed now.

Not quite sure who had this strange idea, putting someone’s old bathtub in a restaurant, basically in a dining room. But I don’t think we will go back there. And it definitely is one of the weirdest things I ever saw in a restaurant. What about you, what is the weirdest thing you saw in a restaurant or foodie place?

  1. You win Rob, I can't think of anything weirder than ET's bathtub, I guess you should be grateful at least that he wasn't in it…eeew! THAT would have put you off your dinner haha !

  2. Too funny! Who cares where Elton John took a bath. Ugh.

    Re the cars: I guessed Lincoln Town Cars in a tongue-in-cheek way, but I would not have guessed Russian vehicles.

  3. I can't think of strange things that could compete with Elton John's bathtub, but we did see a display case holding the world's largest truffle at a restaurant in Slovenia.
