The Federalist Lounge is the lively tavern on the first floor of Tenpenny Tower run by Shakes, a bartending protectron.

Unlike other shops, the Federalist Lounge is open at any time. This is handy if you come into the tower late at night from an excursion. 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 stands in the center of the room, with chairs and tables spread haphazardly around it. A jukebox is in the right-side corner. Shakes stands ever present in the left side of the room, near the shelves and his liquor cabinent.


  • There is a terminal (easy) in the far left corner of the shop. If this is hacked, you can gain a 10% or 50% discount from Shakes. This can make him an excellent merchant to trade with. Sadly, he only has 120 caps at a time, and he cannot repair items, which makes his use limited. He restocks on caps every 72 hours.
  • Regulars include Herbert Dashwood, Michael Hawthorne, Irving and Tiffany Cheng.


Federalist Lounge appears only in Fallout 3.
