Hyderabad's Loo Cafe Offers Not Just Clean Toilets and Good Food but a Lot More - Check It out Here

Feel the urge to pee, and not decide “pee-ing” dreading over the stinky, unhygienic conditions of the public toilets in India? The revolutionary concept of Hyderabad’s “Loo Café” aims at challenging the low-esteemed perception that we all have about Indian public toilets.

India’s first-ever “Loo Café” in Hyderabad has been launched with the revolutionary concept of maximising the luxury offered by a public toilet scenario along with a wide range of additional benefits. The city’s first-ever public toilet setup has been inaugurated with the installation of free-to-use clean & hygienic toilets along with featuring a separate café area, an ATM, and value-added services to enhance the overall user experience.

Concept

The innovative concept of blending the norms of a clean, hygienic public washroom along with additional facilities is the brainchild of a Hyderabad-based firm named “IXORA FM” –a leading facilities management company. As the company conceptualised the idea of this innovative setup, it received a collaborative hand from GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation). GHMC provided the necessary space for the installation of the Loo Café in the city.

How It Was Set

The one-of-a-kind café in Hyderabad, the Loo Café is spread across an area of 170 square feet and is located in the famous HITECH City. IXORA FM, along with GHMC, set up the café with an initial investment of around 12 Lakh INR to provide high-end facilities to the users. These public toilets are not like any other standard loos that we come across the nation.

The complete structure of the café has been designed using prefabricated wood. This structure is both insect as well as fire-proof. Going by the name “Smart Loo” amongst the locals, the Loo Café in Hyderabad is known to utilise the cutting-edge IoT (Internet of Things) technology solutions for meeting its requirements for energy & resources.

How Long Has It Been There

Loo Café was recently set up in May 2018. It received its inauguration by KT Rama Rao –the Minister of Information Technology, Textiles & NRI Affairs, and Municipal Administration and Urban Development.

What is Unique

The café occupies a compact area of just 170 square feet and features three separate washrooms –for men, women, and those with disabilities. The women’s washroom area sports a sanitary napkin vending machine (each costing 5 INR) along with a disposable bin.

The attached café at the premise serves snacks as well as beverages at economical rates. The entire premise also comes equipped with solar panels, security cameras, and air coolers. For those who wish to use the facility regularly, they are issued a free access card, as well. Some additional amenities include free Wi-Fi access and radio facilities.

With an aim to promote the hygiene and sanitation, around 178 such models are expected to be launched across the city soon. The company also plans to extend the sustainable public washroom model across the country in major cities, including Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Mohali, and Indore.
