Description[edit | edit source]
Formerly the Velvet Room, it was bought and retooled by John Marcone. It is located in the Madison Hotel, the same hotel where Victor Sells murdered Tommy Tomm and Jennifer Stanton in their room, in Storm Front.
The structure is spread over two floors. The first floor contains several legitimate businesses. The second floor is a brothel disguised as a Health Club for men, in which all the trainers are beautiful women. Ms. Demeter is the manager of the Health Club. Harry Dresden is one of several platinum members at Executive Priority Health, who, except for him, are all wealthy executives.
