The Bottle Street Gang is the most powerful criminal faction Dunwall. Based in Bottle Street, they recently won a bitter war with the Hatters Gang for control of the Distillery District. They are led by Slackjaw, who uses the whiskey distillery to manfacture bootleg elixir. While it's members are normally hostile, the Bottle Street Gang at the distillery will not attack Corvo during House of Pleasure unless he attacks them.
In addition to using their cleavers, Bottle Street Gang members can utilize their bottles to emit a breath of fire, which can seriously damage Corvo. When Corvo is spotted on heights that the Bottle Street Gang cannot reach, they will throw these bottles at him, to set him ablaze.
However, if Corvo can hit the bottles with his crossbow or gun, they will ignite, burning their owners alive. Sleep Darts can also cause the bottles to explode, so careful aim is required when dealing with the thugs.
- The Bottle Street Thugs bear resemblance to old Victorian London street gangs, which named themselves after their street and wore similar 'Fine Work Gear' an image immortalized by films
- In The Knife of Dunwall, graffiti related to the gang war with the Hatters can be seen plastered around the Legal District. One such item declares "The Hatters fired the first shot, but Bottle Street fired the last"
