The Devils Playground is a hot new club in <Generic City>. It caters to the rich and famous, with a strict "What happens in the Playground stays in the Playground". After a recent renovation of the basement, The Devils Playground Casino has opened. You name it, its there: Blackjack, Slot Machines, Texas Hold 'Em, etc. Authentic Romanesque statues line the hallways, bathrooms and floor of both the Club and the Casino. The VIP Area - The Devils Den - is extremely private and accessed by invitation only.
The layout of the The Devils Playground is interesting. The front of the complex is the club and dance floor, along with more secluded booths and the like. The ceilings are high, and the Devils Den occupies the center half of the complex, above the bathrooms, a balcony overlooking the club one side, the strip club on the other. The owners office occupies one end, with windows overlooking both parts of the club. The front entrance to the club has a stairway leading down into the Casino area.
Dante Giordano is the owner of The Devils Playground. In his mid 30's, he is a strikingly handsome Italian who has recently arrived in the country. He portrays himself as a suave business man who has branched out into the United States to expand his families business. He is also the most eligible bachelor in <Generic City>. His staff are fiercely loyal to him and are treated well in return.
And all of this is a front.
Dante Giordano is a Mafia Boss. His nickname in Italy is "The Devil of Levanto" for the bloody inter-Mafia war that raged there. He was arrested and tried for murder (amongst other charges) but was cleared on all accounts. Since then, he has moved to America to spread his power and influence. The Club serves many purposes: It 'Cleans' dirty Money, it sells Drugs and Sex, it collects information on Politicians and other important figures in <Generic City>. Its a base of Operations and has seen more then its share of shady deals go down.
But Dante has to tread carefully. His power is growing but he is new to the City and is still testing the waters. He brings a lot to the table and threatens to start another bloody war in order to gain more territory. His Strippers, who double as prostitutes, are a source of information. Their customers include politicians into 'Kinky' things, politicians cheating on their wives, and a host of other men. The dance floor is where a lot of the drug dealing occurs, the waitresses he move about on the fringes being the dealers. More then one club goer is high on something by the time the night is out.
The Casino is about the cleanest operation in the club and serves solely to clean the drug and prostitution money, filtering out money that the FBI or law enforcement try to flood into the system to track what is going on. Dante, however, is slowly building his empire, gaining influence over important people.
What I am looking for:
