Heapside was a large district in the Lower City of Baldur's Gate that included the portion of the city northeast of Gray Harbor. It was bordered by the Old Wall of the city to the north, the Steeps to the west and Eastway to the south.[1]

HistoryEdit

The name Heapside originally referred to the entirety of what came to be known as the Lower City of Baldur's Gate. This changed following the events of the Tax Revolts, when the terms "Upper City" and "Lower City" came into use and replaced "Old Town" and "Heapside".[3]

Taverns and restaurants
  • Blushing Mermaid: This tavern was infamous across the Sword Coast as a gathering place where the lowliest of dregs could conduct their shady dealings.[7]
  • Splurging Sturgeon: Formerly a struggling tavern, the Sturgeon was reformed as a seafood restaurant that offered a wide-range of tasty dishes featuring nearly anything that was fished from local waters.[8]
Temples
  • Shrine of the Suffering: The Baldurian shrine to Ilmater was small and rather unremarkable, however its attendants catered to the most destitute of the Gate's residents.[2]
