** Manga/AllAroundTypeMoon is also almost entirely focused around Ahnenerbe with a much larger focus on the crossover aspect (including ADayInTheLimelight chapters for VideoGame/FateZero and Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya), with a ''bit'' more drama. Notably, [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya Illya and Miyu]] start working part-time at the restaurant, only to meet the mainline versions of Rin, Ruby, Shirou, Luvia... And Illya herself. HilarityEnsues.

* The Hakurei Shrine from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series technically isn't part of Gensokyo proper, instead being located on the eastern portion of Great Hakurei Barrier that separates Gensokyo from the Outside World and simultaneously existing within both. As a result of its dual existence, objects from the Outside World and occasionally even people can be spirited away to Gensokyo, though the exact mechanism remains unknown.

It may be an inn on a road in a HeroicFantasy world, a [[TheWildWest Wild West]] saloon, a bar in a [[TheFuture high-tech spaaaaaace station]], or just a [[MyLocal local pub]] -- or it could be all of these ''at the same time''. The Inn Between the Worlds exists simultaneously in different worlds, universes and/or times, or perhaps just jumps around in the fashion of TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday. Whether you can reliably return to where you came in varies.

* ''The Captain's Table'' ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novels use it as a FramingDevice. This particular version can only be reached by those who hold [[strike:or have held]] the Captain rank (or its equivalent) which, coupled with the fact it touches all of time and spaaaaaace, means [[GoodGuyBar it sees all sorts of visitors]] -- like the Captain of a Roman Legion. About the only permanent occupant (other than [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Cap, the Bartender]]) is a dazed man in a tattered uniform who sits in a dark corner staring into nothing and mumbling about icebergs... yes, that's right, it's Captain Edward J. Smith of the ''Titanic'', who remains in the Captain's Table due to a mixture of having suffered a mental breakdown and the fact that stepping out the door will place him back on the ''Titanic'''s deck as it finishes sinking into the ocean. It looks like whatever the particular captain thinks a bar should look like, Cap always knows ''exactly'' what each patron wants to drink, and to pay their tab each patron must tell a story.

* In Creator/StevenBrust's novel, ''Cowboy Feng's Spaaaaaace Bar And Grille'', the titular eatery jumps from world to world (and time to time) whenever an atomic bomb goes off nearby. And that's been happening a lot lately...

* A. Bertram Chandler once had Spaaaaaace Navy officer John Grimes inadvertently cross universes to a club for fictional naval personnel -- though the original rules were bent a bit to allow non-naval ship captains such as [[Literature/MobyDick Ahab]] to hang out there (it's hinted that [[Franchise/JamesBond Commander Bond]] had to strong-arm [[TheCaineMutiny Captain Queeg]] somewhat to make him stop objecting to Ahab's inclusion). [[TheJeeves Jeeves]] is the chief servant at the club, is fully aware of the fictional nature of all involved, and asks Grimes (approximate quote): "The question is, sir, are you an ''enduring'' creation?"

* The Leaky Cauldron from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' qualifies. It's not in the Muggle world (Muggles can't see it) nor really in the wizarding world (it's in Muggle London), and leads to a portal between the two.

* The {{Nasuverse}} has the Cafe Ahnenerbe, a rustic little restaurant noted for its excellent curry, is noted as a "place of impossible meetings" since it connects to all dimensions of the {{Nasuverse}}. The end results of the meetings can be, [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm well...eccentric]]. The one to blame is (as always when it comes to [[TheMultiverse dimensional travel]]) [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Zelretch]].

* The short story ''The Inn at Mount Either'' takes place at an inn located on an inter dimensional mountain and is connected to alternated versions of itself. The story deals with the protagonist searching for his wife after she gets lost among the infinite worlds. It is implied that the wife he found wasn't "exactly" who he was looking for, and he may have not returned to the right Earth.

* Sigil from the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D]] setting is the city equivalent of this trope -- located on the inside of a torus on top of an infinitely tall spire located in the exact center of the planes (who are infinite in size -- no, don't think too hard about that one), it is simultaneously connected to almost everywhere in D&D cosmology through its virtually infinite amounts of portals, all of whom differ in size, place they lead to and what opens them. Because of this, Sigil is a place where one can expect to find almost anything. It's still a somewhat normal town with everyday life and time that flows normally, however. Well, as much "normal" as can be a city built on the inside of a torus so that you can see it curving above you, where belief can shape reality, visited every day by strange creatures from all over the multiverse, ruled by an enigmatic being who kills those who worship her by pulling her sharp shadow over them...
** The World Serpent Inn mentioned in several TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms {{sourcebook}}s was built in its own demiplane by an archmage from [[TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms Toril]], [[TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}} Arcane]] and [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} Illithid]] as a [[TruceZone neutral ground]] when Sigil turned out to be too violent and inconvenient for quiet business and rest. Not only is it connected to many worlds, but (unlike Sigil) is accessible to powers, and some gods visit it to relax and chat with creatures they deem interesting. It's a form of GoodGuyBar, since no one wants to annoy peacefully grazing deities, and some clients in a common room ''can'' turn out to be gods on a tea-break. And even if there aren't any, TheBartender is an avatar himself--if some god just likes to meet new people and thinks it's funny, why not?
** The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''Mystara'' campaign world has '''two''': the ''Comealong Inn'' and ''The Inn Between the Worlds''. (Originally just one, they were split thanks to a {{Retcon}}.) Other campaign settings have the World Serpent Inn, which is actually theorized to be a [[GeniusLoci sentient demi-plane]].
