Brubek's is a chain of starport taverns, located in Class V, IV, and a few III ports. Of the 200 units, half are in Solomani space, 20 are in the Sword Worlds, and the rest are scattered across the Imperium. Along with food and drink, Brubek's sells familiarity. Every unit is identical to every other: same size room, same decor (dark wood, leather, and brass), same view (a holographic panorama of a Generic Big City by Night), same menu, same bottles behind the long bar. It is a recreation of a romantic ideal (some would say mythical) neighborhood joint.
