Stray Sheep is the name of the bar that Vincent and his friends frequently visit. Erica (a waitress) and Master (a bartender) both work there.
Here, players can order among four varieties of drinks to get Vincent drunk: beer
, cocktails, sake
. Geting Vincent drunk has gameplay benefits and improves his ability to clear Nightmare stages. Furthermore, when Vincent finishes a glass of his drink of choice, you will get a little tidbit of trivia relating to the drink he's having.
You can also indulge in an arcade game, with mechanics similar to those found in Vincent's dreams, named Rapunzel with over 50 levels of play. Obtaining certain scores in the game will unlock conversations with certain bar patrons. It's also been hinted that other mini-games
, some involving food, will also be available within the bar.
A bathroom in the back of the bar, acts as a preview screen for upcoming boss battles. When the player chooses to have Vincent wash his face, he will hear a short description of upcoming levels as well.
Other activities include speaking with Master to be introduced to others in the establishment, wasting the night away talking with Vincent's friends and playing music on the bar's jukebox, which allows you to change the bar's background music.
Time passes in the Stray Sheep as you interact with its patrons and engage in the various activities. While you're busy doing these things, certain bar-patrons will leave or enter the establishment and conversations will shift towards other things as the night passes along. Eventually, the bar will inevitably always be empty with exception of Master,Erica and Vincent.
