Smithfield's Saloon is a location in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Background

The primary saloon in Valentine, Smithfield's sells beer and whiskey for $0.50, beef stew for $3, lamb's fry for $5, as well as almonds, which can be consumed for free. It also has a poker table, hosting a game which the player can join for $2.50, as well as a barber, who can cut both the player's hair and facial hair, and customise the styles. Jon can also be found here, at night or in the afternoon, ranting about various topics. The player can fight him, and acquire the Raccoon Hat from him afterwards.

This saloon is popular with local farmhands, cowboys and traders,[1] although the existence of bedrooms to stay in and the prevalence of prostitutes would suggest that it is also home to working girls.

Interactions

This saloon is first visited during the mission "Americans at Rest", which occurs soon after the gang move to Horseshoe Overlook. Arthur Morgan joins Charles Smith and Javier Escuella in the saloon for a drink, before Bill Williamson drunkenly enters the saloon, assaulting someone on his way in and ultimately causing a bar fight. A huge, burly man named Tommy soon joins the fray, and proceeds to attack Javier. After saving Javier from Tommy, Arthur is then forced to fight Tommy alone in the street outside of the saloon. To everyone's surprise, Arthur emerges as the victor and Tommy is beaten severely.

At some point afterwards, Arthur visits the saloon with Lenny Summers, with the intention of having a drink or two with him to calm his nerves. Arthur and Lenny instead get far more drunk than they had intended, and end up having many strange experiences, such as being involved in a slapping contest with each other and frequently losing each other. The two are eventually confronted by the law, who wish to arrest them for drunken violence. Whether Arthur gets captured or manages to escape depends entirely on whether the player is able to evade the lawmen or not.

Layout

On the one side of the bar is the counter, where the player can buy drinks. On the other side is a poker table, where the player can partake in poker.

In the back right of the saloon is a barber, and upstairs, there are multiple hotel rooms, which the player cannot sleep in.

Trivia

  • If the bartender is knocked out or killed, the saloon will be locked and physically boarded up.
  • In the mission "A Quiet Time", Arthur can accidentally walk in on a prostitute and a patron, seemingly confirming that prostitution is a common practice in this saloon. Additionally, the Killer Prostitute can be found here, in one of the upstairs rooms.
