B1 Drink Club bills itself as an "upscale Pan-Asian influenced bar and lounge." Yet the bartender’s baseball cap, sweatshirt, and shorts argue something to the contrary. While the woven lighting fixtures overhead and an interlacing bamboo stripe on the walls conjure up a modernist’s view of the Orient, the red neon-rimmed sheet of Plexiglas behind the small, stool-less bar is strictly Occidental garishness. The main room’s long bench and several small tables provide scant seating; a larger, low-to-the-ground oak table sits in the back for VIPs. Beyond the sliding glass door lies a claustrophic zen garden in which live bamboo shoots are dwarfed by the enclosing buildings. Throughout, both indoors and out, the DJ's string of ear-piercingly loud Michael Jackson hits keeps the focus on your food instead of your friends.
