The fire crackles as you take your seat, a smile on your face. The air hums with the clanking of glasses and the conversations of dozens of people. You smell the rich scent of butterscotch and maple; the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. In short, all the hustle and bustle of Hogmeade's, and often Hogwarts', favourite place to come. You sit, waiting to place your order. "Butterbeer and Firewhisky are one of our more popular options but you pick what you want," says the bartender.
this is a pride location.
This is the site of the marketplace! Clothes, pins, badges and all sorts of accessories patterned with the LGBT+ flags are being sold here.
Roy entered the resturant, glancing around for a little bit before finding a place to sit and heading over there. He hadn’t never been in a place like this before, and guessed it was a focal point of magical England. He just glanced through the menu on the table, not really sure if he was hungry enough to eat there or if he should get something small.

She'd come over giving him a flirty smile. "Hey hon, what can I get you?"
He glanced up at her, thinking she was pretty attractive and young. Most of the people who worked here were older. “I don’t really know honestly, what do you recommend?”

His accent was interesting...maybe French? She'd smile at him and lean in lowering her voice a little as if sharing a secret or not wanting to be overheard. "Honestly most of the food here is bar food for people to snack on while they drink. That being said they do have really good ribs or wings if you don't mind getting a little messy or a decent grilled cheese with amazing tots."
"I feel like bar food is a very popular thing here, maybe I should start getting used to it," He said with a small chuckle. "Mmm, you know that grilled cheese with tots sounds pretty tasty right now. Lemme get that with some butterbeer,"

She'd nod and straighten up. "Of course...I assume when you say here you mean this country and not Hogsmeade?"
"Oh, yes yes. I've lived in France for the last four years so I've grown accustomed to the lifestyle down there, I hope I didn't offend you in anyway."
Regan BlackGraduated Ravenclaw - Artist -Hope and Ferlen Black's daughter – 18:53, August 16, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "No. I've lived my whole life here in England so I always like talking to other people and seeing how things are different in other places. Hopefully I'll get to travel at some point. You said bar food seems popular here...I've heard it's more popular in America."
He couldn’t help but chuckle a little at that, “Well, America did spring up because of the British, so I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” he commented. “Oh really? Well I do wish you luck, I used to live in England until I was 14, then I moved to France. It wasn’t quite the culture shock, especially to a 14 year old boy,”

She'd frown a little. "Why? I would have thought it would be a culture shock? I assume you moved from Hogwarts to Beauxbatons?"
“Well, I had a family to help me adjust so I wasn’t alone. It was kind of like the foreign exchange student program, only not really... But, because of them it Justin lessened the blow of being in a new culture. I felt like I wasn’t a complete stranger,”
Regan BlackGraduated Ravenclaw - Artist -Hope and Ferlen Black's daughter – 19:11, August 16, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly having a little trouble understanding his accent. She'd sound a bit cautious. "Family can be nice to have around but sometimes they also can get on your nerves. So did you like Beauxbatons better than Hogwarts?"
“Oh yeah, especially when you’re older brothers are twins”, he said with a small roll of his eyes. “Well, there were pros and cons for each school. Beauxbatons was more structured and enforced rules more harsher, but that also meant that everyone was preppy and the atmosphere wasn’t as laid back and easy going as Hogwarts. Beauxbatons was like an academy, while Hogwarts was a home away from home.”
Regan BlackGraduated Ravenclaw - Artist -Hope and Ferlen Black's daughter – 19:34, August 16, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. She probably wouldn't have done nearly as well at Beauxbatons then. "Well let me go get your food in for you...wouldn't want to keep you waiting." She'd smile and turn to go get his order in.
“Well I wouldn’t mind waiting if that meant I got to talk to you, you’re good company,” he said with a small smile.

She'd give him a slightly cocky grin. "Don't worry...I'll be back soon enough. I've got other customers to wait on but I'll have your food out soon." She'd turn picking up some empty glasses on the way back behind the bar. About ten minutes later she'd come back with his food and butterbeer.
