The Golden Cat as seen from street level.

"The Golden Cat ... A bathhouse for aristocrats. Little better than a cursed brothel."
— Teague Martin

The Golden Cat is a renowned pleasure establishment found in the Distillery District of Dunwall. Part brothel, part steam-house, and part theater and burlesque parlor, it is also known as the best tavern in the the Isles.[1] It is the primary location of the mission, House of Pleasure.


The Golden Cat is part of the city's history. Many of the richer denizens of the city, such as the High Overseer Thaddeus Campbell and influent parliament members and noblemen, the Lords Custis and Morgan Pendleton, make regular visits to the pleasure house. It is managed by a Madame, and staffed by courtesans in charge of accommodating their guests.

While under management of Madame Prudence, the Golden Cat was temporarily closed in 1837 due to a plague infestation.[2] The building had yet to be fully cleaned during its grand reopening.[3] On that same evening, Corvo Attano infiltrated the bathhouse, looking to rescue Emily Kaldwin held captive by the Lord Regent, and eliminate the Pendleton twins, Burrows's associates.

During that time, the Golden Cat also bought bootleg Elixir from the Bottle Street gang to fight off the plague, and some times repaid them in trade instead of coins.[4]

Fourteen years later, the establishment is running well under the newest proprietor Madame Steele, Prudence's daughter. The Golden Cat also employs two ex-Whalers: Galia Fleet as Head of Security and Rinaldo, her assistant.[5]


The front of the Golden Cat consists of a garden opening on the street below and a patio. The entrance leads to the reception and lounges a floor above. The right side of the building is the apartment and office of the Madame, the courtesans' dormitory and their shared bathroom. Below is the V.I.P. entrance, which opens on a small court and a tunnel to Bottle Street under Clavering Boulevard.

The other side of the building consists of a two-story hall where guests can enjoy themselves with the courtesans, as well as several private suites with red lamps to indicate if they are occupied. A steam-room can be found on the underground level, adjacent to a fish pond.


  • The Golden Cat is the setting of a crime story involving a man from Morley looking for his missing sister, sighted as a courtesan.[6]
