The Fortress, the pub where the superheroes hang out, is a reference to The Fortress of Solitude, where Superman lives. Keen viewers may notice the logo of the pub represents the enormous golden key that sits outside Superman’s Arctic wilderness retreat, the key which only he can pick up.
The walls of The Fortress are covered with postcards of other superhero cities, like Metropolis (Superman) and Mega-City 1 (Judge Dredd).
The rules of The Fortress pub are: No Masks, No Powers, No Heroics. The sign is written in the Captain America font from the 1940s.
The alcohol available in the pub is as follow. The logo of each brand is in the style of the comic / person it is referencing:
