Ah, the Copper Coronet! One of the finest ale houses in all of Athkatla. Here you can drink and rest to your heart's content. There are also rumors of other kinds of entertainment in the back rooms - if you could only gain entrance to them. Maybe the owner, Lehtinen, could be convinced to let you see what is hidden behind the closed and closely guarded doors.
Explore the bar well, and you may find five or six quests and three joinable companions.
Salvanas is on the lookout for female company. If your protagonist is female, you can offer to sleep with him – in which case he runs off! ;-) If Edwin is in the company and is currently transformed into a woman (in connection with his NPC quest) and you let "her" speak to Salvanas, it will end with Edwin(a) attacking Salvanas and turning the entire bar hostile. So don't let the two get near each other.
Here you can also find Garoll, one of the local drunks. Speak to him and buy him a drink, and he'll tell you about the "special entertainment" in the back rooms of the Copper Coronet. This is a powerful hint that you should talk Lehtinen into giving you access to the back rooms.
As long as Lehtinen is the owner of the Copper Coronet, you can meet Amalas and his two thugs here. You can accept his challenge to a one-on-one fight and kill him in the nearby fighting pit; Jaheira will not be happy about this.
If you have dropped Yoshimo from the party, this is where you can find him. He will not be available from Chapter 6 onwards.
Here you will find Anomen. If you tell him that you are brave and a force for the good, he offers to join your party. If the person speaking to him is female, you don't even need to answer questions about your moral and bravery.
If you have dropped Minsc from your party, this is where you can find him again.
Here is Tiana, who is looking for her missing husband, Rumar. The husband can be found at 12; if you tell her, she will go there, and a fight will ensue between Tiana and Priss, Rumar's mistress.
If Korgan is in your party and you don't tell Tiana about Rumar and Priss, Korgan will do it just for spite.
Here are the guarded doors into the back rooms. You must have Lehtinen's permission before you can get through.
At the topmost of the two doors you can find Edwin, if you don't let him join during the Mae'Var quest, or if you drop him from your party.
Here are Rumar and Priss. Once you have found them, you can let Tiana back at 10 know where to find her husband. She will seek out the lovebirds, and a fight ensues between the two ladies. It is random who wins the fight.
Here is Llynis. You will need to speak to him in connection with the Teddy Bear quest.
Madam Nin offers to let you spend the night in the back rooms with a young "lady". You can not take her up on her offer if Jaheira is within earshot.
When you first enter this platform, you will be greeted by Frankie who tells you that there will soon be a fight. Press him to learn that the "gladiators" are slaves. Move inwards, and you'll witness a fight between a slave and a Troll, which the Troll is scripted to win.
Here are the slave cells, one of which contains Hendak. When you first enter the room, you will be accosted and then attacked by the guards. Each guard drops mundane stuff and minor treasure.
Once the guards are killed, speak to Hendak in his cell. He will beg you to retrieve the Beast Master's Key from 18 and set the slaves free.
Once the slaves are set free, Hendak will walk to the bar at 2 and kill Lehtinen and then take over the Copper Coronet. Beware, the guards on the way back will now be hostile and attack you.
TIP: Freeing Hendak gives you 7,500 XP. But once you free Hendak, all the slaves will be freed. So it pays off to open the other two cells first and speak to the inmates for 2,500 XP per cell before freeing Hendak himself. ;-)
Here are the fighting pits. You will encounter a Winter Wolf. The wolf drops a Winter Wolf Pelt which can be sold off at any shop.
Here you will find the Beastmaster. Once he realizes that you are plotting to free the slaves, he attacks you and also sics his pet cat Tabitha on you along with some other monsters: a couple of Mutated Gibberlings, a Panther, a Leopard, a Black Bear, a Grizzly Bear, and a Minotaur.
