Spartacus gay bar in Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude

In Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, there is a gay bar called Spartacus, located on the “Crappy Street” (as opposed to the “Nice Street”). You can watch Larry explore the space here. He also runs into Ione at this bar, standing next to a butch woman. A conversation with her results in a mini-game parody of Grease’s “Summer Lovin’” in which she indicates she now identifies as a lesbian.

There are few different activities players can engage in in this space:

  1. Taking photos of a stripper named Helmut (they can then sell these photos to bar patrons).
  2. A rhythm dance with Helmut (seen in this video)
  3. Making cocktails in a bartending mini-game
