The Bottle Street Gang is the most powerful criminal faction in Dunwall. Based on Bottle Street, it recently won a bitter war with the Hatters Gang for control of the Distillery District. The gang is led by Slackjaw, who uses the Dunwall Whiskey Distillery to manufacture bootleg elixir. While its 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. The Bottle Street Gang thugs will throw these bottles at Corvo, attempting to set him ablaze, in the event that he is spotted up high, where they cannot reach.
However, if Corvo can hit the bottles with his crossbow or gun, they will ignite, burning their bearers alive. Sleep Darts can also cause the bottles to explode, so careful aim is required when dealing with the thugs non-lethally.
- 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 inscription declares "The Hatters fired the first shot, but Bottle Street fired the last"
