Shimmy Club criticized for two-way bathroom mirror

Clubgoers in Scotland are expressing outrage after it was revealed that one night spot was allowing male patrons to spy on women in the bathroom through a two-way mirror.

The Scottish Times says that Shimmy Club, a bar in Glasgow, installed the mirror that separates the men's and women's restrooms. It would allow men to see directly into the other private area.

According to the International Business Times, the club's owners described the mirror as a "bit of fun" that they hoped would generate a buzz. The club seems to have taken the criticism in stride, taking to their Facebook page to respond.

"It's clear that those who are negatively commenting on line may not have been lucky enough to get past the door staff yet and viewed the area as they would have seen that the sight line is very limited," club officials said. "Loads of you have used the opportunity as it was intended and knowingly had pictures taken acting up to the camera individually or in a group of friends."
