Zhufbar Gates1 is a prominent tavern on the Konigsplatz. Noted for its stone worked façade and massive oak doors and iron work (said to be a scale version of the gates to Zhufbar itself), this tavern is respite for many dwarves in Altdorf.
If a traveling dwarf is not drinking at the Yellow Bellied Gobbo or staying in the Dwarven Quarter proper, he or she will likely be found here. Inside the doors, the first floor stone and timber framing dominates the view.
The burning hearths, evident only by the belching chimneys outside, warm the room through out the cold months and the stone (and cold hearths) cool in the heat of summer.
Like the YBG, Zhufbar's Gates caters to a palate that likes big, bold meats for breakfast and supper and bigger, and bolder, ales and meads. The rooms are well appointed and the traveller, dwarf or human, can find games, very private snugs (amidst the stone walls), and the services of a madam (along with baths).
Expensive yes, but the dwarves that find themselves at Zhufbar's Gates are either already wealthy or on the way to Zhufbar to try their luck and get wealthy.
