DANCING CYCLOPS TAVERN & INN

Hail and welcome to the Dancing Cyclops Tavern & Inn. The Cyclops (as they like to call it) is a prosperous tavern located in Waterdeep, on the southwestern corner of The High Road & The Street of the Tusks, just a half block east of Waterdeep Way.

This is the 'home' of The Company of the Dancing Cyclops. A group of adventurers that are famous throughout the city and parts of The North. Lark Whisperwind and Jaspryth Redlockes have helped make The Cyclops one of Waterdeep's hottest taverns in the city.

Many other patrons call the Cyclops their home, and to be perfectly honest, many of them have become like family. Like any family, they have their disagreements. Sometimes trouble finds its way into this happy home, but they always manage to come together, closer and stronger than before.

The people who come to the Dancing Cyclops are many. There are those who come just for a quick drink and those that linger all through the day until closing. With every person comes a story. This is the reason that the Cyclops does so well, everyone here has a story. Some patrons don't bother anyone and wish the same for themselves, others like to tell their tales to any who will listen. (Sometimes 2 or 3 or even 17 times if they can)

The Dancing Cyclops Menu
The Dancing Cyclops is famous for its platters of Spicy Potatoes. This simple dish is a local favourite and many will come in for a platter or two. The Cyclops' kitchen was run by Cariss, Jondar's wife, and she is a fabulous cook. Cariss was a very under appreciated person who works all day and most nights as well. She rarely had the time to come out and meet the people she cooked for, and when she did she appears tired and angry.

With the new renovation being done, and The Company's fortunate rescue of Tobi. The Dancing Cyclops fame for great food has increased tremendously. Tobias Whistleflute (Tobi) is an amazing chef and baker. His desserts are to die for and the Ladymage of Waterdeep, Laeral, has often come to the tavern just to sample Tobi's latest creation.

During the Midwinter Carnival of 1369, Tobi managed to beat the Baker's Guild in a baking contest. Also The Dancing Cyclops came in first overall at the competition as well, edging out their friendly rivals of New Olamn Bardic College.

Tobi, however, has returned to his home in Luirien.
