Inferno Dallas is a club, the second to bear the name (the first being just outside of New Orleans). Inferno is owned by a man (or woman?) known only as Allegheri. Nobody has ever claimed to have met Allegheri.
Inferno Dallas is located in an abandoned Catholic church just south of downtown Dallas, and is divided into nine concentric areas, arranged in “circles” around one another. Each circle has a theme modeled after one of the classic circles of Hell from Dante’s Inferno, from which the club draws its name.
The nine circles are:
- Wrath and Sloth
In the center of Treason is a spiral staircase that leads up to the second floor, which is known as Purgatory by those who frequent the club. Only employees are allowed into Purgatory, and they have spoken of an area that is off-limits even to them, which is likely Allegheri’s private office and possibly quarters for when he stays at the club.
The only person on staff at the club known to have contact with Allegheri is the manager, a muscular African American man covered in tribal tattoos who calls himself “Tiny.” Tiny enjoys interacting (if you can call beating up people interacting) with the club patrons and often plays the role of a bouncer within the club.
Inferno serves a purpose among the supernatural communities of Dallas as well; like it’s counterpart in New Orleans, the club is considered neutral ground for the various supernatural factions of Dallas. Any who displease Tiny (and, by extension, Allegheri) soon find out that Tiny is something more than he seems…just what he is is unknown, but his strength surpasses even what his muscular frame would suggest.
