Unlike other shops, the Federalist Lounge is always open. Should Shakes be killed during the ghoul takeover, no one will run the Federalist Lounge.
The Federalist Lounge is located on the right side of the Tenpenny lobby, opposite New Urban Apparel. A pool table, which usually has 2 pool cues, multiple pool balls and a triangle, dominates the space, with chairs and tables spread around the room for the patrons' comfort. A jukebox is in the right-side corner. Shakes will be standing ever-present on the left side of the room, near the shelves and his liquor cabinet.
- There is an Easy locked terminal in the far left corner of the shop. If this is hacked, one can gain a 10% or a 50% discount from Shakes. One can also gain both discounts by selecting both discount options. This can make him an excellent merchant to trade with. However, he only has 120 caps at a time (which cannot be improved), and he cannot repair items, which makes his use limited. He restocks on liquor and caps every 72 hours.
- Regulars include Herbert Dashwood, Michael Hawthorne, Irving and Tiffany Cheng.
The Federalist Lounge appears only in Fallout 3.
Sometimes the dual discount will not work, one canceling out the other (usually the lower canceling the higher). Be sure to save before trying to get both discounts. [verified]
