|“||No Refunds! No Refills! No Regrets!|
|— Abyss Bar Slogan|
The Abyss Bar is a large section on the main floor of the Space Rig. Here you can have a drink with your fellow dwarves, dance to the tunes on the Jukebox or take rounds trying to kick barrels into the Barrel Hoop.
At the Bar, you can order a drink from the robot bartender Lloyd. A price list is visible on the top left corner of the bar and when talking to Lloyd.
Starting from Rank 3, players are able to purchase Beers from the Abyss Bar. Depending on the potency of the drink and how many are consumed, the player's character may become intoxicated. The effects of intoxication include borders of the screen becoming a wavy double-image, the player's view will wobble around randomly and the player's character will move in random directions of their own accord. These effects will become more extreme if the player drinks more Beer, and if too much Beer is consumed in a short amount of time, the player's character will pass out drunk. If alone the player will respawn in the Infirmary, though if other players are present they will need to be revived - similar to losing all of one's health in a Mission. Either way, the player will wake up sober.
It is possible to enter a Mission while intoxicated, though there is no incentive for doing so besides bragging rights. You will not receive a Hazard Bonus for completing a Mission while drunk.
On the bar's counter players can see a small green tipping device called TIP-C (nicknamed "Tipsy"), where they may pay 5 credits to leave a tip. This has no effect besides triggering a random dwarf voiceline thanking Lloyd. There is additionally a small bobblehead dwarf on the counter that players can interact with to slap around.
Players who suffer motion sickness are advised to avoid drinking too much, as the effects of being drunk can cause dizziness and nausea. Make sure to drink Leaf Lover's Special to "cure" the effects of intoxication.
Lloyd the robotic bartender seems to be an all-purpose drone similar to Bosco, he wears a hat and bow tie, and is connected to barrels of ale in the ceiling.
By approaching and interacting with Lloyd, he projects a list of the available drinks with descriptions and price tags for you to order from. Upon ordering, as many tankards as there are players in the lobby will emerge, quickly being filled by Lloyd. Then each player can grab a tankard, give a salute and drink.
If the player cannot afford, or hasn't reached the rank requirement to purchase a drink, Lloyd will deny them service.
|“||Management reminds all employees that contrary to common belief the available drinks do intoxicate dwarves, do have influence on their ability to walk straight and do possess the potential to knock them out.|
Craftable and special beers will require brewing materials found in missions in the form of collectible plants: Barley Bulb, Yeast Cone, Malt Star and Starch Nut.
These drinks are always available.
These drinks are only available on certain events and holidays.
|Best Wurst Beer||Strong
|Available during Oktoberfest.|
A sausage-flavoured brew. Actual food was not within the budget for the celebration, so this was the second best option. Will definitely put some hair on your chest. If you can keep it down...
These 8 drinks provide the dwarves with a buff once consumed. Only one of them is sold at a time, the special drink changes upon mission rotation and buffs can't be stacked.
Beer License required to be paid first to unlock the whole selection: 1,000 Credits, 5 Barley Bulb, 10 Yeast Cone, 10 Malt Star, 15 Starch Nut.
Carry Movement Speed

Pickaxe Power Attack Cooldown
|A rare and much desired brew. Continuing the millennia-old tradition, this heady ale was imbibed by the strongest, most fiercest, most absolutely rabid dwarves of old before heading into glorious battle seeking an honorable end. Not for the faint of heart.|
Fall Damage (additive)
|Safe For Work
|The Smoothest of brews, known to instill such confidence and grace into even the clumsiest dwarf as to make any sober dwarf blanch. Be warmed: Overconfidence is not covered by the company insurance.|

|Beer License Cost: Rank 11, 1,000 Credits, 12 Yeast Cone, 7 Malt Star, 31 Starch Nut
An ominous concoction, so thick and black that you'd think it was taken from the very core of Hoxxes itself. Any rumors around psychotic episodes and hallucinations connected to this brew are purely anecdotal. Or so they say...

|Gut Wrecker||The player releases a loud burp, shaking their screen.||Epic

While most drinking has a tendency to slow you down, Smart Stout stands out by doing the opposite. Imbibe enough of this rich, golden nectar and you'll be solving complex orbital insertion equations faster than you can say "This drink, I like it! Another!". How? It's said Science is involved. Somehow.
|Underhill Deluxe||The player shrinks in size.||Regular
|Beer License Cost: Rank 5, 350 Credits, 17 Yeast Cone, 5 Malt Star, 8 Starch Nut
In a hole in the ground, there lived a brewer. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to drink; it was a brewery, and that means beer. This beer, in fact. And it is lovely.

|Beer License Cost: Rank 17, 1,500 Credits, 10 Yeast Cone, 20 Malt Star, 40 Starch Nut
There are some breweries out there that will go to any lengths to attract customers. There are dark rumors surrounding the Wormhole Special - dark and ominous as the blackness of space itself - but damn if it ain't tasty even so. Drink with caution and respect. Grasp your knees tightly and close your eyes. It'll be over soon.
Drinks that can only be ordered by owners of the Supporter Upgrade DLC.
|This version of the Glyphid Slammer is a drink only available to purchase by owners of the Supporter Upgrade of the game. It is functionally identical to the regular Glyphid Slammer, but comes in a golden tankard, and replaces the regular Glyphid Slammer in the bar.|
The potency of the drink will affect the intoxication level of the player, adding to the total, causing different effects after passing certain thresholds. The intoxication level goes down by 1% every 24 seconds.

The effects of intoxication slowly become worse and worse as the player's tolerance is used up. These effect happen roughly at these points:
|26-39||Slightly blurred vision|
|40-49||Player begins to stumble around|
|50-59||Stumbling worsens, double vision begins to creep towards central vision|
|60-69||Vision begins to notably sway|
|70-89||Staggering gradually gets worse|
|90-99||Random slurred speech begins. Staggering becomes more and more extreme. Vision fully blurred.|
|100%+||Erratic movement becomes sharp, player passes out shortly after.|
The Barrel Hoop
The Barrel Hoop mini-game is located at the back of the Abyss Bar.
Players stand behind a barrel which is dispensed from above, and attempt to kick the barrel into a moving hoop that incinerates barrels, beer mugs and dwarves that pass through it. Scores can be reset via the red button to the right of the game. The player will die if they jump into the incinerator hoop, only to respawn in the medbay afterwards. If the player dies while intoxicated, they will receive an achievement.
Scoring and point values
The game consists of four phases, with the first phase active while no barrels have been passed through the hoop.
Upon entry of a barrel, points will be awarded according to the table below.
If the hoop bounces off of the left side twice without a barrel being scored, the phase is reset to 1. Missing a barrel also resets the phase to 1.
If a barrel passes through the hoop within the cycle (from left to right to left), the game will progress to the next phase when the hoop touches the left side, capping out at Phase 4 where the point values are multiplied by 4.
The speed of the hoop can change whenever it touches the left side.
|Item||Phase 1 (1x Modifier)||Phase 2 (2x Modifier)||Phase 3 (3x Modifier)||Phase 4 (4x Modifier)|
|Beer Mug||1 Point||2 Points||3 Points||4 Points|
|Normal Barrel||10 Points||20 Points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Green Barrel||10 Points||20 Points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Yellow Barrel||10 Points||20 points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Red Barrel||25 Points||50 Points||75 Points||100 Points|
|Forge Hammer||Hammer Time (No Score)|
|Forge Toolbox||No Score|
|The Space Ball||3 Points||3 Points||3 Points||3 Points|
|Player||No score (but see Achievements)|
First phase has a 1x point modifier, Second phase 2x, Third phase 3x, and 4th phase 4x. Phases are indicated by the size of the text on the scoreboard located above the moving hoop, although the text size does not increase between phases 3 and 4.
Employee of the Month Screen
Just above and behind the Jukebox is the Employee of the Month Screen.
It shows the current name and profile picture of the Employee of the Month on the Deep Rock Galactic Discord, along with the Discord's current online and total users.
It also randomly shows one of 5 flavor texts:
- Managed to mine 10000 Nitra without using a pickaxe.
- Got a broken back after carrying the entire mission on the shoulders.
- Won a drinking contest against Bosco.
- Forgot to bring ammo to a mission. Highest kill count anyway.
- Secretly knows what the error cube is for. Won't tell anyone.
The Jukebox contains a wide variety of songs from many different genres that are literally irresistible to dance to. Whenever a song is playing and you are within range, you cannot fight the urge to dance! Cost 2 per use.
† - Songs with this mark are non-instrumental and contain vocals.
When enough resources and credits been collected to purchase a Beer License, there will be a short visual of a glass mug being filled with beer followed by six lines of comedic text relating to the creation of your license. Six random quotes can appear when obtaining a license:
|"Adding Ingredient X..."|
|"Adding The Holy Hops..."|
|"Releasing Cooling Rods..."|
|"Cleaning Holding Vat..."|

Elves are known for their pointy ears. To top it off, the dwarves often speak negatively about "Pointy Eared Leaf Lovers". In mythology, dwarves and elves tend to dislike one another.

- Drinking a Blacklock Lager, an Oily Oaf, and a Gutwrecker should put you at 99%, 1 % short of passing out, but if less than 24 seconds pass from the first to the last drink, you still pass out, more than that and you do not.
