Vapor barrier for bathroom?

I enclosed a corner of my shop for a bathroom and an air-conditioned den. The entire shop is heated. The bathroom is not air-conditioned and it shares a ten-foot long stud wall with the air-conditioned living area. I plan to use kraft-faced fiberglass in the stud wall with the paper facing the air-conditioned room, and also install a 6-mil poly barrier on the bathroom side before putting up drywall. My concern is possibly trapping moisture in the fiberglass. Any professional advice is greatly appreciated.

Ordinarily, faced insulation or a vapor barrier is used on exterior walls only.
