The Forlorn Hope is a bar located between Night City’s downtown area and the Combat Zone. It is co-owned byJohn Freeman and Dollar Bill. It initially meant as a place for former members of LRT-601 to come together. It later expanded to include any South American vets, and then anyone who had combat experience in South America. Today the bar is open to anyone, but it is heavily favored by solos. Its orginal intent has not been forgotten and any South American vet will find friends at the Forlorn Hope.
