Ah Dav Oras's Cantina. 'The Fiesty Togruta'. Nar Shaddaa isn't a friendly place, it's crawling with bounty hunters, smugglers and the like. But I tell you, this is the one place on the whole planet where no one is trying to kill you. Drinks are good, music is nice and I can catch up on the Holonews in peace.
You do catch your odd Bounty Hunter in here, but most of the time you'll just find troubled folk running away from something dumb they did.
I also think people enjoy coming down here cause it's so rare to see Imperials coming by the Cantina.
I come here pretty much every day, I'd say I'm pretty familiar with the locals
The Cantina is owned by the Cerean behind the counter, The man rarely smiles, but I tell you what he makes a mean cup'a Jawa Juice
General rule of thumb is no droids in the Cantina... Course the Empire brings their droids in here all the time... That said a droid serves you drinks and cleans up the place, the thing never leave the cantina... Now I don't wanna say that's some double standards... but come on Dav!
I swear this is the one place in the galaxy not playing the Imperial Broadcast. If I have to hear about another 'successul planetary liberation' by the Empire I'm gonna lose it...
I don't think much of other Bounty Hunters... Sure I'm one myself, but I don't love doing this job... The empire made my old job redundant, and this just seemed to work. But I tell you what, seeing the big shot Bounty Hunters like Bossk and Embo in the Cantina, man it's something else!
The Iakaru in the blue jump suit is called Wodi. I swear I've only ever seen him wearing that blue flight suit... seriously does he even bathe? The guy smells like he lives on Raxus Prime... His friend, Okins has a serious drinking problem, and the little guy Nava, he has a serious stealing problem. Luckily the three of them seem to talk to eachother long enough to not be a problem for the rest of the Cantina.
Dana and Briana Rook. Mandalorian sisters who've grown tired of their culture and have taken up Bounty Hunting. I've seen both of them fight, even worked with them on jobs before. They're tough, I'm sure they could give Fett a run for his money.
Embo, Bossk, IG-88 and Dengar. What a team. You don't see em in here much, they usually have work of world. But when they're on Nar Shaddaa, they come by here. Everyone seems to leave them alone... too afraid they'll get a blaster bolt in the head I guess.
Zikssk is a Trandoshan big game hunter. He comes in all the time claiming he's famous across the galaxy, always flaunting some 'true' story about the Rancor or Wampa he just killed. I've heard about him off world. Lizard is nothing but a joke, makes every story up.
Bastilla Felstar. She'll never admit it, but she does all she can to rebel against the Empire. She's a good kid, even helping this blue skinned babe get a ride off world. She's kind at heart, but crazy to think she can take on the Empire. Now I don't like the Empire, but I'm not crazy enough to go blow up their stuff and expect to live.
The Rodian sitting at the bar is Bendakk. He comes in here every day, at the same time and orders the same drink, guys like a droid, never changes and never misses a beat.
I've heard talk about Aurra Sing before, but never seen her in the flesh. She's never come in here, but I imagine she's here to talk about a job with Bossk, I've heard they've worked together before.
Tell you what, Dav would normally get upset that a droid is in his bar, but he's not about to tell IG-88 to get out.
Now I probably shouldn't be telling you this, but the younger girl talking to the Mirialan in purple... She's a Jedi. No idea how she survived this long, but she has. She comes in here looking to help people, or get leads on other surviving Jedi. I come here a lot so I hear a thing or two about it. I'm not about to sell her to the Empire though... Sure the Galaxy thinks the Jedi were traitors, but I don't know, they helped the Republic win the Clone Wars, that alone has earned my respect.
Talia Shak. Quick with her blaster and quick with a joke. This Twi'lek smuggler has it all.
The Mon Calamari sitting around Wodi's table is new here. Guess he's just trying to make friends. Don't know much about him yet, but I know a man who is running away from his past when I see one...
I've grown friendly with most in this cantina, but the red head girl in the back, Sena Arden... I don't trust her. She stands around in the shadows and listens. Never talks to anyone and never buys and drinks, just listens. Can't help but think she's a spy. Whether she works for the Empire or the Hutts I don't know. She's new here, but something's up with her, I can feel it.
There is a Dejarik board in the Cantina, but the Duros and his pal up the back never stop playing. In all my years of coming here never once have I had a turn... nor has anyone else but those two...
Dav makes the best Moof Juice in the Galaxy. Period. I try the Moof Juice on every planet I got to, and nothing compares to what Dav serves here. I don't know what he does to it, but it's something else!
Never spoken to the blue skinned Twi'lek by the bar, she comes in with her wookiee friend every so often but I've never caught a name.
The Rodian trying to make a deal with the Trandoshan isn't one of the brightest people I've met. Him and his buddies always have some new get rich quick scheme up their sleeve, sometimes they do make some creds... but then the blow it all on drinks in celebration and wonder where all their credits went.
Cade Anaron is a smuggler. He gets a lot of work on Nar Shaddaa and comes here every so often to blow off steam. Not the nicest guy, but he gets the job done.
You're probably wondering how this Cantina got the name, The Fiesty Togruta. Well a feisty little Togruta used to own this place... she was a little too feisty though, when she talked back to some Imperial Officer, they shot her. Dav was a close friend and took over a couple weeks later.
The human male with the blue shirt, sitting with the Rodian and his green skinned friend. Guys name is Jax Coven, says he's the best Pilot in the Galaxy... I can't tell you how many people say that. Solo says he is, I met a Twi'lek with an annoying droid who said the same... Everyone is the best pilot in the Galaxy these days. I've flown with Jax, and I tell you the way he handles a ship is embarrassing
The Cantina is a bit on the smaller side, never had room for a band, but the Holo-Net's music isn't so bad... Still I wish they'd get a decent band in here one day.
The Cantina is nice, not too quiet, not too loud either. But I tell you want, Dexen and Borran arguing after one of them supposedly cheated in their last game is louder then the music at Club Kennex down the block.
Lot a colourful personalities down here... but it's the best place to drink on Nar Shaddaa I'll tell you that much

Fourth Wall Commentary:
Super proud of this one! Lots of fun to build, and even more fun to make all the minifigures that are in it. Would love to make more cantina MOCs in the future
Awesome work! I love pretty much everything about this. The doorway is awesome and so are the pillars around the booths. The bar area is also amazing! I also love all of the characters you made and brought to life with the text. Nice job!
This is an amazing cantina MOC, and the backstory and character info really bring it to life! I've personally been wanting to try and build a MOC of 79's "Clone Bar", and your cantina and another that I saw recently have inspired me to finally start. :D
7/5. 4 for the build and 3 added smilies for the AMAZING background story.
This REALLY makes me want to play LEGO Knights of the Old Republic 3. Where can I sign up for the swoop races? Care for a game of pazaak?
Wow, look at that! This place looks awesome. I love all the different figures you have running around in here. But I'm a little disappointed that you didn't vamp. "Oh boy, Ben made a MOC, let's talk Shazam and Endgame and other things! Oh... Oh, Ooooooh, it's all in universe stuff and the characters actually have character! This is neat!" So that's a fair trade off. I remember a thing for a mobile lightsaber duel game being advertised before The Force Awakens in the theater and it asked, "Light Side... or Dark Side...?" and I shouted, "Trick Question, Bounty Hunters all the way!" Great work on the MOC.
