GTA IV—The Lost and Damned

The club itself is referenced occasionally in GTA IV, as in the case in "Out of the Closet" when Tom Rivas mentions the club and Hercules, another club owned by Gay Tony. Other characters from GTA IV are also known to have frequented the club, including Gracie Ancelotti (as revealed during "...I'll Take Her"), and Alex Chilton and Carmen Ortiz (Carmen refers to the club as "Bungalow 9") in dialogues during dates with Niko. The club is later reported by the to be closed alongside Hercules following allegations of drug pushing in the premises. Both in GTA IV and The Lost and Damned, the club is inaccessible until The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

According to The Ballad of Gay Tony's official website, Maisonette 9 was founded in 2003 by "Gay" Tony Prince, and, as indicated in The Ballad of Gay Tony, has been designed to face Galveston Avenue, at the WestminsterMeat Quarter border, in the basement levels of a warehouse-turned loft. The club itself only exists physically in The Ballad of Gay Tony, whereas the same location in GTA IV and The Lost and Damned is nondescript, with no hints of the club's existance. Maisonette 9 is supposedly one of Liberty City's hottest nightclubs, where Luis Fernando Lopez serves as a bouncer and personal bodyguard to the club owner. Other Maisonette 9 clubs were also reported to be operating in London and Las Venturas.

As Luis works in Maisonette 9 as a bouncer, player can access the club and interact with its patrons. Luis can dance, champagne drink or manage the club. The Maisonette 9 also serves as mission destination points. In the near final storyline in The Ballad of Gay Tony, the club is later closed by the city but was re-bought by Yusuf Amir in the later storyline.


The security officials and employees are:

  1. Dessie (Doorman),
  2. Luis Lopez (Head of security),
  3. Joni (CCTV Guard),
  4. indoor bouncers
  5. and a barman.
