The Inn of the Dripping Dagger was the favored bar and home to many adventurers, mercenaries, misfits and soldiers in the city of Waterdeep.[1][2] the Dripping Dagger's prices always seemed to be a bit lower for those who were down on their luck.[1]

The inn was best known for its seemingly haunted front door which would utter cryptic and seemingly menacing phrases such as 'His head will be found in a basket on Ship Street.' The city guard enlisted the help of the Watchful Order of Magists and Protectors who investigated the phenomenon. The mages of the order were unable to reach a conclusion as to the cause of the strange utterances but several theories remained popular ranging from a prank to the belief that a rogue Voice of Oghma was responsible.[2]


The tavern was located in the Trades Ward of Waterdeep just off the High Road.[3]


In 1372 DR the inn was run by the courteous Filiare. In 1479 DR the Lohthuntle family ran the Dripping Dagger.[2]
