Ah okay, I understand where you're coming from. *considers* I really only have Philly to go on*, but the unisex bathroom layouts I saw there wouldn't necessarily stop someone from retreating to make that kind of call, mostly because they make up the difference by being fairly private spaces (also quite surprisingly roomy, for accessibility reasons. There's definitely design lessons that could be learned by examining Philly bars. Who knew?).

Texting can be sneakily done from anywhere; I'd even suggest creating a draft of a text beforehand and just making it look like you're checking your messages--with one button push, text is sent. I mean, even if you don't use it, it seems like it'd work as a security blanket. And there's always the old 'Sorry, I have to take this call' and stepping out to do so.

Other situations, well, I don't know, someone would have to put the problems out there to be solved, I guess. The bartenders seem to be uniformly friendly/helpful every place I've been, but I can't speak for the clubs, I mostly haunt bars and craft beer/whiskey places. Clubs have always been a problem and I don't think I'd meet anybody I didn't already know for a date in a dancehall/club. I also cannot fairly report on the bathroom situation in the average club, but in Philly the whole unisex bathroom thing is actually law, and tbf, it's one of those things that almost organically arose out of the culture that's already in place.

*ok and NYC but there I often found that there's literally one tiny bathroom usually for staff and paying customers only, so unisex by default
