"There is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction..." - Andrew Ryan

Robertson's Tobaccoria is a chain store that sells smoking-related recreational drugs. It is one of four known recreational drug stores in Rapture, the others being Le Marquis D'Epoque, New Worlde Smoker, and Rapture Grown Coca.?

In Fort Frolic, the Tobaccoria is located in the lower part of Poseidon Plaza, adjacent to the entrance to Eve's Garden. Inside the Tobaccoria is a small lounge and a locked humidor containing shelves of Habana Especial cigars along with other supplies, all watched over by a vigilant Security Camera. When Jack enters the shop, a lone Thuggish Splicer is trying to break into the locked humidor. Bill McDonagh's Audio Diary Guns Blazing can be found on a table in the lounge.
The code to the locked door is "7-7-7-4". Unlike most optional door codes which are revealed in Audio Diaries, the code to the Tobaccoria storeroom is written on a scrap of paper lying next to the bullet-riddled corpse of Albert Milonakis in the Le Marquis D'Epoque's lower floor.

The Tobaccoria also exists in the multiplayer version of Fort Frolic. Located on the west side of the lower mall, it contains many shelves of cigars as well as several EVE Hypos and a Circus of Values vending machine. Although it's the early days of the Rapture Civil War, the Tobaccoria has already seen a lot of damage. The floor is littered with spent shells, blood stains, and tobacco products, the walls are bullet-ridden, and a glass window in the humidor has been blown out. A flimsy wall on the north side of the shop can be broken to give access to the lower floor of Pharaoh's Fortune Casino.

Robertson's Tobaccoria also has a recreational drug stand operating out of High Street next to Le Temps Perdu. Just as in the other locations, the store caters mostly to the Rapture's upper class. Evidently Booker DeWitt visits the shop quite often as he and Herr Schmidt, the German man who runs the place, greet each other familiarly.
