Patty's Party Planning Place (Luida's Bar in the Japanese versions) is a specialty location owned by Patty in that appears alongside her in several entries in the series.

The services of the bar include creating and deleting player-made characters, housing party members unable to travel with the hero or ride in the wagon, and serving as a refuge for those removed from the line-up through the effects of the Blasto spell. Patty will also (reluctantly) take deceased party members off of the hero's hands.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

It is located in the starting town of Aliahan, in the northwestern most corner of the city. It consists of 2 separate NPCs behind counters who control party member creation and addition/dismissal from the player's party. It is the basis for the party system in Dragon Quest III.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

Patty has settled in Gotha, managing the bar on the second floor of the castle. Her services can be utilized in the Third generation when the player has control over the human side of the party line up. Monty is found in the bar as well, allowing for total party control in one convenient location.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Patty has expanded her business considerably, being available in both the Upper and Lower Worlds, and even the realm of the dreadfiend himself. The bar is located in Port Haven, Alltrades Abbey, Felonia, Slimopolis, Greedmore Valley, and Gallows Moor.

As Monty does not appear in any version of VI, monster recruits can be dropped off at Patty's.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

Patty plays more prominently in the plot of IX than in previous games, and her bar is found at the Quester's Rest inn in Stornway.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Patty was added to the game on it's fifth anniversary, and set up shop in the city of Astoria. The bar allows players to change vocations, recruit A.I. controlled party members, and receive general advice from the lady herself.

Dragon Quest Heroes I & Dragon Quest Heroes II[edit]

The planning place appears in both games to let you rearrange your party.


There is an actual eatery in Tokyo, Japan called "Luida's Bar" based on it. The bar opened on January 28th, 2010, and rotates through themes based on past and upcoming titles.
