Campaign of the Month: August 2011
Le Ballet de l'Acier
Le Grosse Aiguille
The Sail-Needle is located near the port of Marseille and the bourse; the sign is a meter-long iron needle suspended over the door. This expansive tavern caters to the captains and pilots of the sailing ships and galleys which throng the port and the merchants whose cargo they carry; the tavern also attracts expensive doxies for those seeking more refined companionship.
The tall ceilings of the Sail-Needle attest to its original use as a sail loft supplying the ships of the port.
