Why do urinals in fancy restaurants have ice in them?

So if you don't flush, the hot urine will melt the ice and kinda flush it for you. If you don't flush a urinal, the salt in your urine will build up and clog the pipes.

It is thought that it keeps the stink down.

I always assumed that it was an attempt to reduce odors in a classier way than using a perfumed urinal cake.

Mostly due to dropped ice or when people in restaurants claim they have something in their glass they dump the remains there. They aren't supposed to but depending on your server and their attitude you might not worry about it and take care of business.
