After a night of changing identities and outfits that go along with that, brawling, stretching, shape-shifting, or however one expresses oneself, Super Heroes are still human. (mostly) They need a place to unwind after work, socialize with their peers, and have a few drinks, if they are of the persuasion. They also need to get back to being themselves, whoever that may be.

One must enter through the Saloon side. Here is it mandatory to wear your costume for obvious reasons. It is time to relax with a couple of drinks and chat with friends. Bartenders may be aspiring sidekicks, or just local college grads. There are a couple of Sidekick grads as bouncers. They will make sure that no Super Villains congregate or enter the protected zone. So here is a relaxing environment to rest and enjoy.

Halfway down the hall are some changing rooms. When one wishes to get cleaned up and groomed, they must change costumes to street clothes. The doors to these rooms are staggered and secret passageways lead out to other doors, so one is never seen coming out the same door as they went in. Discreetness is emphasized. The staff is well trained in security and altered states of reality.

Then walk farther down to the SuperHero Salon for a shave, or a haircut that compliments any style mask and even a back or foot massage. Manicures and pedicures are also done. Meditation rooms are available for those who like to relieve their stress in a natural fashion.

Secret location will be divulged after approval of your Super Hero license and charge card.

       You're going to have to have some serious machinery for the massage and manicure part of your bar. Some of those superhero muscle and nails are pretty darn tough.

       Oh yes, we have grinding wheels, blow torches, etc. It's no shabby operation.

       Well... alright then. +

       you'd also need to use some fairly robust soundproofing to allow certain heroes to ignore the sounds of life outside. i mean, with ears like superman, standard stuff ain't gonna cut it.

       I like to keep descriptions at a minimum, but yes, every detail is taken care of by SuperHerologists.
