It might be in Dinkytown, but this bathroom is no trivial toilet.

According to the 12th Annual Cintas' America's Best Bathroom Contest, an intimate concert hall nestled near the University of Minnesota campus houses a pretty impressive powder room.

Cintas, a corporate restroom service, said the Varsity Theater "invites guests into an Alice in Wonderland-like grotto - to relieve themselves and re-live childhood like fairy tales."

Moreover, the bar service extends into the bathroom for a V.I.P. (Very Important Potty) experience.

Throughout the fall, thousands of online voters weighed in on bathrooms across the country, from restaurants to hotels and an ice cream parlor and airport. The Varsity Theater beat out nine other finalists.

The championship water closet was judged on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation functionality and unique design elements.

The latrine was memorialized in the America's Best Restroom Hall of Fame Tuesday morning.

If you need an excuse to go to the bathroom at the Varsity Theater, here is a list of upcoming events.
