Shame on you,I gess that you like the copper corenet during Levitan magemant.
My favorite I must say was the tree kegs inn back on the city of Baldur´s Gate.Volo likes the tree kegs also and recomend it.

Nothing wrong with a bit of nookie.

These cities are packed with bars. Hard drinkin' place is old Faerun. I liked the Elfsong in BG1 - nice background.

I find the taverns in Athkatla lack atmosphere.

I think Buldur's Gate has better choice of taverns than Athkatla. My favourite is The Helm and Cloak.

Although my heart belongs in Winthrop's Inn in Candlekeep, I'd have to say the bustling heart of Athkatla, the Copper Coronet...

I've dumped all my unused NPC's (via the "stay here" option) in the Double C...

For pain and pleasure, though, I suggest the Underdark Tavern...

Drakron, I agree withyou. Three Kegs in BG1 had class, good service, friendly staff, and great rooms.

Gotta watch those trapped picture frames in the Helm & Cloak though. What a lovely, warm welcome the place gives. What with Gorpel Hind and the fight that breaks out too.

Makes you want to stay out of picture galleries...

I found the picture galleries very rewarding. Helm and cloak is my runner up.

I can't recall the inn's name. It was in BGI, and there was this great fight with this band of evil adventurers. It was the place where you meet this other low level band of adventurers (something like the Laughing Fools or such). It was there that I discovered for the first time the power my pc mage had acquired. His spells, such as stinking cloud, truly won the day. I think I was 7th level at the time, and it was in the city of Baldur's Gate.
