"Ah. It's an unfortunate set of circumstances for all involved. Of course I have initiated my own lines of inquiry, but such a delicate matter will take time. Perhaps we will talk later."
Juan Cortez, about the busted deal.

The Party is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to the protagonist Tommy Vercetti by lawyer Ken Rosenberg from his office in Washington Beach, Vice City.

Tommy Vercetti goes to Ken Rosenberg's office trying to get some leads, following the orders of Sonny Forelli. Ken Rosenberg tells Tommy that Colonel Cortez is having a party on his yacht and that it would be best to start with Cortez, who set up the deal. Ken gives Tommy his invitation but tells Tommy to stop at Rafael's and get a new outfit. Tommy leaves the office and drives to Rafael's where he gets a new suit. Tommy then drives to the yacht at the marina and meets Cortez, who says they can talk about the ambushed drug deal later. He introduces Tommy to his daughter Mercedes Cortez, who then points out each of the party guests. However, when Ricardo Diaz arrives, she leaves with Tommy, having him drive her to The Pole Position Club.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go get some new threads from Rafael's clothes shop
  • Get to the Colonel's boat
