The courtyard is an open area surrounded by small, individual huts and rooms. The courtyard has a shallow pool in the center, as well as palm trees and other vegetation.
The first time the player character enters the area, they will encounter Joana immediately, who is central to the quest Bye Bye Love. Later she may be found in her room or dancing in one of the courtyard's corners. Dazzle can be found in a hut on the main level, past where Joana is first encountered.
A variety of prostitutes dance and walk around the area, but only Joana and Dazzle can be engaged in extended conversation or solicited for sex. On the second level, just to the right of the door as the player character enters, is the door to Joana's room.
- Looking down at the ground anywhere on the bottom floor of the courtyard will give the player character the "drink" option, even if the player character is nowhere near the center pool.
- Joana doesn't seem to exist in the world until the player character first enters the area. She can be seen actively spawning into the location upon arrival.
- The ambient track "Serenity", or "Dream Town," from Fallout 2 plays in the Gomorrah courtyard.
The Gomorrah courtyard appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
