* In ''Videogame/{{Reunion}}'' you have one in your Command Center, of all places. You can hire a spy, a bounty hunter, a pirate and so on. Rather mild version -- all those people (and aliens) seem to go there only to offer their services to you.

* The Penguin's place of business tends to be this for the Mafia types. Doesn't always work out. ''Two Face: Year One'' had the freaks take it over, until the SWAT team invaded, killing all the expendable lackeys. And one penguin. An actual penguin, not the supervillain.

** The Iceberg Lounge nightclub (the one run by the Penguin) is one that stands out, both in its popularity with crooks ''and'' with Batman if he needs to know something.

** Another standout Gotham example is Finnigan’s which is a ''cop'' bar. Due to the corrupt and crooked nature of most cops in Gotham it's also a bar the uninitiated are likely to get shot at. Jason Bard tends to frequent the place to try and feel out cases and he is just barely tolerated due to his past as a member of the GCPD before he got shot and had to start using a cane.

** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has two, on the same planet: Kralla's Song, on the top level of Kadara Port, where the bartender draws a knife on anyone stupid enough to try and skip out on paying (and asking for her to "surprise" you is a ''very'' bad idea), and Purgatory, in the slums, which is darker and dingier, and has saucy dancers. Who do so behind barred windows, not to protect the dancers, but more to protect the "clientele" if (when) the dancers retaliate to unwanted advances.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Willy's Place is the place where Zol-Am goes to gather an army of undead (“Is there a gathering place where our kind can be found, in this city?”, he asks).
-->The moon was up and the night was, thankfully, almost cloudless. Willy’s Bar was a place which the living had no business visiting. It still had a bustling and varied clientele. It was run by a bumbling demon who trucked with the criminal supernatural element (which, in Sunnydale, was just about all of it), and you could find pretty much your phantasmagoria of ghoulies, ghosties, and long-leggity beasties there, with their beverages of choice.\\
Buffy and her friends were among the few breathing folk who came there in a capacity other than as victims.\\
This time, the Slayer went in with her redheaded friend, the latter of whom was wearing her Supergirl outfit under her jumpsuit.

** Adam-Troy Castro's series, a {{Spider-Man}} trilogy of novels, features the Machiavelli Club in New York City, an upper-class restaurant supposedly created by a [[Literature/SherlockHolmes villainous mathematician]] for the purposes of catering to those with a "special brand of vision". Sadly, [[NoFourthWall construction was incomplete]], as the Machiavelli's patrons run the gamut across continuities, companies, and universes. A short listing of its patrons include:

* Subverted in ''OliveTheOtherReindeer''. The "Top of the World Bar" near the North Pole, Olive stops in looking for a ride seems to be populated by criminals, but it turns out they aren't that bad.
