The two-story dwelling specialized in fine wines, good food, gaming, and sundry other "divertissements" for the traveler or the merchant. Prices were ten gold for an evening, which included a sumptuous banquet, dancing, singing, and the opportunity spend additional money at the gaming tables, or the hired help. While the Zhent occupation, the festhall became a dirty brothel and most of the frequent occupants area mid level officers, who spent their time and money gambling.
The festhall was owned and operated by the halfling, Mother Tara, who kept a honest establishment and was proud of her reputation. She was backed up by Briig, who was said to be a flesh golem with an illusion spell placed upon him, which was a lie, but one that Mother Tara used to her advantage. Most of the gold earned from customers was repaid to the Zhentarim in the form of heavy taxes.
