Curse of the Crimson Throne
This most popular of the few taverns in East Shore does steady business every hour of every day. Three times per day, off-duty garrison guards stop in for a drink before heading home or back to the barracks. Longshoremen stop by in the evenings to carouse with friends and grouse about their back-breaking work. Warehouse managers, dock bosses, Korvosan Guard officers, and even the occasional younger son of an East Shore noble family all stop by the drinkhall throughout the day.
Owned, operated, and occasionally patrolled by House Endrin, Shoreline Drinkhall has a reputation for fair prices and stiff drinks, although its meal offerings taste more like military rations than tavern food. Since East Shore is so close to Thief Camp it often fills with Shoanti and Varisians, who seem to instinctively know how to find the drinkhall. Bar brawls occur regularly within the tavern, although not quite with the frequency or danger of bar fights in the Sticky Mermaid.
