Care to wet your whistle?

Shakes is a protectron robot that functions as a bartender in the Federalist Lounge at Tenpenny Tower in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

Shakes is the Federalist Lounge’s robotic bartender, and he dutifully slings drinks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In fact, being a bartender is all Shakes has ever known; he was commissioned by Allistair Tenpenny for that very purpose. Shakes doesn't have much to say, but he can offer discounts on drinks if one knows which buttons to press.[1]

Interactions with the player character[edit | edit source]

Interactions overview[edit | edit source]

This character is a merchant. Caps: 120
Sells: Drinks and stimpaks

Initially, he serves drinks at some of the highest prices across the Capital Wasteland. However, if the Lone Wanderer hacks into his programming terminal, his prices can be lowered significantly. The terminal is beside him on the bar and if one hacks into it they can program Shakes to either have a "Holiday Discount (10%)" or a hefty "V.I.P. Discount (50%)" (but not, unfortunately, both). If the Lone Wanderer is caught doing this, Shakes and all the bar patrons will become hostile.

After hacking his terminal and setting up the V.I.P. discount program, his demeanor will change, addressing the Lone Wanderer as "Sir" and telling them what an honor it is to serve them.

Shakes serves only alcohol and stimpaks.

Effects of player actions[edit | edit source]

If you convince Tenpenny to allow the ghouls to live at the tower, Shakes will survive after the ghouls "purge" the tower of its human residents. Apparently, Roy Phillips does not find killing Shakes essential, as he is not human.
