Need a place to quench your thirst after a long stay inside the park? Then make your way to the Sloshed Slug when you leave. It's not too far from the gates so you can't miss it. Show the bartender your ticket from the day to get one free drink!Nestled in the center of the Underdark, this establishment is part of the Midnight Kingdom amusement park. However, it was not built within the main grounds. The building is located between the main park gates and the nearby hotel reserved for visitors. The park's owner, Zuggi Jewelseeker, built it a year after the Kingdom's grand opening.
The Sloshed Slug is a two story building. It was built with white stone bricks and oak wood. Patches of moss and glow shrooms have grown along the outer walls. Staff trim them on occasion to prevent overgrowth. The sign above the door depicts an image of a drunk, cartoon slug with a glass of alcohol and some food imagery. The path leading to the door is smooth stone; small garden lights line it at evenly spaced intervals. There is no porch area and no steps. The main entrance is flush with the ground and accessible to all mobility aides. The floorboards of the first floor are enchanted to prevent sounds and music from the lower level disturbing guests who don't want to be around the music.
There are two floors, a ground level and a section below it. During construction, workers carved into the stone under the foundation. This would allow the lower level to be larger than the main floor. Both sections have places to drink. The main section is focused on dining while the basement is more geared towards activities.
Interior and Layout
First LevelUpon entering, patrons are greeted by a server who is stationed at a small podium. The entrance contains an alcove with several benches for those who need to wait. This area then opens up to the main dining floor. Here several tables of varying seating sizes are spaced out evenly. Near the back of the building is a long bar lined with stools. Large doors leading to the kitchen are on the wall behind it. A flat TV hangs from the ceiling. The left wall has doors to the bathrooms. Along the right wall is a set of stairs leading to the lower level. The building's elevator is near the stairs; it can be operated by anyone without staff intervention.
Lower LevelDirectly across from the stairs is the second bar; it is the same type as the main bar, just to a smaller scale. There is a dance floor and DJ booth. A small stage for performances is present as well. Plush couches and chairs are available to lounge in and are paired with coffee tables. The bathrooms on this level are near the bar. There is also an alcove where the arcade is located.
Overall, the Sloshed Slug is an up-beat, easy going place to enjoy oneself. It doesn't take itself too seriously and the staff are usually friendly. Both levels have low, soft lighting that is easy on light sensitive eyes. The lower section does contain more vibrancy for the party going crowd. The bar is usually active for a majority of the night. Club music only plays on the lower level. To fill the silence on the ground floor, light ambient tracks are played. The entire interior appears to have a faint sweet aroma and haze in the air.
The Sloshed Slug serves a mix of dinner items and alcoholic beverages. A majority of their offerings are Underdark specific cuisine. There is a small selection of universal dishes offered that is rotated on a regular basis. The items listed below are staff favorites.
Lumi soup is a favorite among many Underdark natives. Other adventurous eaters find its warm, filling nature a good pairing for their drinks and greasy foods. This is a cream based soup full of glow shrooms and spices.
Slug shooters are a specialty that were originally created in this specific eatery. The main ingredient is a large pickled Slug served in a shot glass. The liquid varies depending on preference. Staff are not liable for choking incidents.
If fungi, insects, and slippery critters gross ya out, we do offer some items more palatable to you surface dwellers. Either way, our grub is guaranteed to be delicious. Otherwise, I'll have to holler at someone.

The arcade is one of the main sources of fun within the Sloshed Slug. It contains a mix of virtual gaming cabinets and crane games. The machines do not dispense tickets, however. It was added as another "gold sink" that staff happily suggest the more drunk patrons to spend time there.
There is an exclusive club that uses the Sloshed Slug as both a general hang out and a meeting spot. Members will either enter through a guarded back door or be let through inside by a staff member after showing the proper identification. Access is only
Have you actually ever seen a single supply cart around? I've been around here at numerous different times. Do you think they got like, some sort of tunnel network going on for things?
I hear they pump this place with some sorta invisible gas that makes folk wanna keep coming back for more. If that's true, I bet that sleaze ball Zuggi uses it in his park too.
Due to the varying species in Omari, the legal age for drinking alcohol and consuming other substances differ from each other. To ensure everyone's safety, every establishment must have a book on hand for reference. It contains all the information needed to legally serve each species and is updated on a regular basis.
Plot HooksAn important item that had been reported as lost / stolen has been spotted in one of the crane games by a party member. An employee discretely slides a note with a key attached to the party. It seems someone wants them to investigate what Zuggi might be up to with his VIP members.
