Hercules logo

Hercules Logo.

Hercules is a gay club in Liberty City that is mentioned in Grand Theft Auto IV and appearing proper in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The location of Hercules is within the northern edge of Westminster, Algonquin, on Galveston Ave up the road from Maisonette 9, just east of the Pay 'n' Spray in Purgatory. The actual club does not exist in the main game or The Lost and Damned, as the same location is simply a nondescript grilled storefront with a Hinterland logo on a window.

Description Edit

Hercules is one of several Liberty City clubs owned by Anthony Prince, also known as "Gay Tony".

In GTA IVEdit

Bernie Crane also first met his current (and secret) boyfriend Bryce Dawkins during a foam party at the club while high on ecstasy. According to the Liberty Tree and Weazel News, the club has been closed alongside Maisonette 9, following revelations of its club goers taking and selling drugs in the premises.

The club is also mentioned during the mission "Out of the Closet", by Tom Rivas, who also mentions Gay Tony, the founder of the club. It is also mentioned by Eddie Low.

In The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

The club appears in The Ballad of Gay Tony as a proper location which the player, assuming the role of Luis Fernando Lopez, may visit. Compared to Bahama Mamas and Maisonette 9, Hercules is much smaller in size and less elaborate, its interior consisting only of a hallway with a cloakroom, and a cramped room that serves as a bar, lounge and dancefloor. Because of its compact design, the player can only drink for free from a bar or dance at the club. The club is manned by a doorman named Troy, and its bartender is constantly depicted as a topless, well-toned man who dances around.

Hercules is mentioned in the radio station Integrity 2.0. The station's host Lazlow mistakenly believes that the club is for heterosexuals, with a Greek style.
