There were at least three levels below the upper deck. The first two decks were filled with bars and gambling tables. The lowest deck was split into small rooms that were available to rent. These rooms were often used by courtesans. By 1482 DR, leaks were a regular occurrence in the ship.
There was an unspoken rule among the regular patrons regarding outsiders: don't pull a weapon unless they draw first.
The Low Lantern offered drinks, gambling, and rooms to rent. Courtesans also offered their services there.
The drinks served at the Low Lantern were said to be some of the most expensive on the Sword Coast. Drinks available around 1368 DR included Westgate Ruby, Suz-ale, Old One Eye, Dragon's Breath Beer, Luiren's Best, Shadowdark ale, and Bitter Black.
For a fee, special parties in the rigging and sail booms could be arranged. For some adventurous customers, wedding nights were celebrated whilst up in the rigging or suspended over the waves from ropes and sail booms.
The workers at the Low Lantern were known as the "crew" and they were made up of ex-pirates. As well as serving the patrons, the "crew" also quelled large brawls and prevent fires. While the bouncers for the Lantern were humans, Laraelra employed two kenku to tend the bar.
Circa 1368 DR, some patrons of the Low Lantern included Yago, Desreta, and Vay-ya. As of 1492, visitors of the Lantern included the thug Grimboot, the sailor Hitoshi Jade, and the dastardly nobleman Amrik Vanthampur.
