The Totentanz is a club in Night City.
The top three floors of the building are occupied by Totentanz, a poorly-supervised club where a lot of boostergang members go to work up some adrenaline before getting laid. The music is loud, the drinks strong, and the patrons rowdy to an extreme. The local ambulance companies no longer make runs here, because too many of the casualties of this club couldn't pay their bills. Late at night, groups of boostergangers will make trips to Medicross Preservation (on High Street near Sterling) to finance their next round of drinks.
The NCPD let Totentanz stay open for two reasons: one; it kills the punks, and two; the gangs would get very upset if the place got closed down. The two story building east of the tower used to be a general store. It went out of business several years ago, and has remained deserted ever since. Lord only knows what goes on inside there now. Rumor has it Night City plans to buy the building for a municipal annex.
In 2023, Totentanz barely escaped the AHQ Disaster. By 2045, the bar was at the edge of then named Hot Zone. It was well-known as a place to find boostergangs, who all seemed to congregate there, but didn't come to dance. It was considered a bad night if the body count was under twenty.
By 2077, the Maelstrom gang have been using it as one of their bases of operation. The TTC is the most popular gangster club and "drink&riot" venue in Night City. Other gangers go there to party and listen to neo-death metal music as long as they obey the Maelstrom's authority and customs. If a night at TTC has a body count less than dozen it is considered crappy and boring. The band, Tinnitus, exculsively performs here.
