The Gathering Dust Bar is a Dustman hangout in the northeastern portion of the Hive, across from the Mortuary. It serves as a secondary headquarters for the faction, and a recruitment area.

From here, the dustmen also get the people of the Hive to sign their Dead Contracts, giving away the rights to their corpses after their death in exchange for a few sorely needed coppers in life.

The bar is tended by raised zombie workers, and smells of vinegar instead of formaldehyde.
