A one-story tavern of shabby quality yet average prices, the Broken Pike's patron were a motley crew of fences, pirates, and smugglers. They were a tight-knit bunch who saw all strangers as targets and prey. One had to stay alert and ready for tricks or violence.
Some regulars used the Broken Pike as a venue to plan their crimes, from theft to murder to worse deeds. It was also a meeting place for the Unseen, so some regular patrons were doppelgangers. The duergar fence Thurn Blackskull could be found here many afternoons.
This is misspelled as "Broken Pipe" when briefly mentioned on page 100 of Cloak & Dagger.
