Basic Overview Edit
Club Rasputin is a seedy strip club owned by Vory head, Sergei Kirov. If you're looking for a place where the women are desperate and the floor hasn't been cleaned since Dunkelzahn was president, this is the place to go. The place employes women exclusively, and only humans, orks, elves and trolls - Kirov cares not for dwarves. Though nominally a strip club, due to poor wages many of the workers resort to prostitution to supplement their incomes - few customers tip well. The dancers are tasteful (no contact - don't expect a lap dance), and drug use is strictly forbidden.
The Vory presence here is constant, and is heavily protected by Vory soldiers at all times of day. Individuals with ties to other syndicates, or even casual passers-by should tread very lightly lest they raise the ire of a Vory.
Outside of the Vory, Shadowrunners find use in the club as a site for clandestine meetings - several booths in the back of the club are designed for secrecy and discretion for groups of 3 to 8. Just expect to pay heavily for the privilege.
