Walking through Macy's on Nicollet Mall begs for reminiscing about the days when Dayton's ruled the city's shopping kingdom. And the fourth-floor ladies room is a place where the glory of the '30s and '40s is still intact. Step inside and be transported to the days when ladies shopped for fancy frocks and gentlemen for dapper duds in the big city. (Fellas, don't worry, you can get a peek at the restroom, too—the lounge is viewable from the hallway and reveals a glimpse of the intricate vintage tilework inside.) Enter and behold the ornate art-deco splendor of the perfectly preserved tiles—red and black on the walls, green honeycomb on the floor, and period aqua-blue sinks with mosaics of lily pads and flowers above. This marvel of detail and craftsmanship makes for an awfully fine place to set down the bags, powder one's nose, and emerge feeling fancy and fresh.
