THIN's drink list is top-notch, a creative mix backing the club's motto of "cocktail couture." Its exotic drink menu commands attention and adventurism. For example: the Cucumber Cosmo (vodka infused with cucumber and mixed with Cointreau, lime juice and cranberry juice); the THIN Mint (chocolate liquor and white creme de menthe); and my personal favorite, the Blueberry Mojito (yes, it includes blueberries); Convent in Chile (that one includes kumquats!). All these drinks go for about $9 a pop.

clientele

at best: young and stylish fashionistas rubbing noses with downtown business movers and shakers relaxing in their business suits, while local art groupies and rock star wannabes lounge on the couches in the back.

service

the bartenders are a touch rude. they made my friend stand at the bar for about 20 minutes while they chatted with visiting friends who they repeatedly serviced. It'd be nice if a waitress serviced the couches in the back.

interior

like if the industrial designer from B&O was told to recreate a scene from 'a clockworkorange' using only furniture from ikea. stainless steel, grays and earth tones, sleek modern couches. filmy floor-to-ceiling curtains and small white tables.
