PI Update: The 8TRAX Staircase

Outside Morimoto Asia you'll find this curious round structure that is completely out of place for the area. Do you ever wonder what's inside?
It's located on the Island's lower level adjacent the bathroom complex. Notice the lack of windows.
Back when that gray metal building was 8TRAX, a circular staircase occupied the round structure and windows wrapped around the building along with the stairs. This was the quick way to get upstairs to a less-busy bar and to the DJ booth.
Early in the conversion of Mannequins and 8TRAX into Morimoto Asia, we could still see the circular building standing guard on the site.
Ultimately the windows were stuccoed over and this door was added. What's inside?
Why it's part of Morimoto's kitchen, lol!!
