Use it to identify the location of a wikipedia:cloakroom. A cloakroom, or sometimes coatroom, is a room for people to hang their cloaks or other outerwear when they enter a building. Cloakrooms are typically found inside large buildings, such as gymnasiums, schools, churches, museums or meeting halls.
