"Some bar is refusing to pay. They reckon they're protected by a local gang of thugs."
Lance Vance

Bar Brawl is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which the protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently in the Vercetti Estate in Starfish Island, Vice City.


Lance Vance says to Tommy that the Front Page Café is refusing to pay for protection because it has protection from DBP Security. Tommy is mad at Lance for not taking action fast so he goes to the bar to deal with this problem with two of his bodyguards. Tommy attacks the guards in front of the bar and meets with the owner but the owner doesn't care who he pays as long as he gets protection. Tommy quickly attacks DBP security. Two guards attempt to escape on PCJ-600s and flee to south of Ocean Beach. Tommy chases them as the guards' backups in Securicars try to attack Tommy. The escaped guards are quickly killed.
