Concierge.com's insider take:
Locals as well as homesick expats love this little slice of Clubland at the outer limits of District 1. The owner, a former computer-graphics artist, has decorated the walls with floor-to-ceiling anime illustrations, while the open room features a central bar girdled by low booths and ottomans as well as an intimate second-floor gallery. DJs spin the latest techno and hip-hop at chat-killing levels, and the fact that there's no dance floor doesn't deter the young and restless throngs. Conversation is best attempted in the outdoor courtyard fronting the dance room, where a full à la carte menu (catered by Xu restaurant), including wonton noodle soup and seared-tuna salad, will also satisfy the peckish.
Open Sundays through Thursdays 5 pm to 1:30 am, Fridays and Saturdays 5 pm to 2:30 am.
