Upper Level[]

After investigating Menswear, Booker and Elizabeth find the needed lockpick and are able to enter The Daily Bread. During its time, the place was a trendy two-story bar but now is a shell of its former self. It’s evident the business was the site of an intense shootout. There’s a busted Turret at the upper bar, an Infusion on the rack, and the audio diary The Old Bear under the counter.

On the upper floor Booker and Elizabeth find a Tommy Gun besides a bloody corpse. There are a group of Splicers on the lower floor; one walks up the winding staircase while the other two attempt to fix a damaged turret.

Lower Level[]

The Lower Level.

The bottom floor had more seating and a trove of useful items. There’s a lockpick in the toolbox, a large bottle of EVE on a table, the Gear Better Mousetrap behind a booth. Beneath the staircase they come across the corpse of a sorry soul who, judging by the plethora of bottles around him, likely drank himself to death rather than face the despair of being trapped in the department store. He clutches a small gold bar in his hand.

Before Booker and Elizabeth leave, they can hear the chatter of Splicers outside the bar.

Behind the Scenes[]

  • "Daily Bread" is a term used to describe a person's daily salary. In the case of the bar, it is used as a play on the fact that some beer contains wheat.
