Unassuming from the outside the interior looks like a giant rose bush. The interior is a near miraculous example of advanced and mysterious wood working marvels. Woven wooden vines carved from rosewood decorate the tavern, serpentining around and amongst the bars various beams, benches, and bar stools. The bar itself is hune from a solid piece of rose wood that is nearly 12 feet long. The stools are intricately carved giant long stemmed roses, complete with thorns. They are one legged, and the tops, with their petals, are shaped so that sitting in them is most comfortable. Patrons are expected to be able balance using the one leg, and should a patron fall from a stool it is a sure sign that they should be cut off. The stone hearth even has the same serpentining rose vines carved into its face blending seamlessly with the woodwork around it. Due to the amount of nooks and crannies that so many intricate vines make pests are a constant problem to the Thirsty Thorn, which is why the owner loves cats so much. Regina is friendly but absent minded, and had the brilliant thought of filling her tavern with cats rather than rodents. It is well known that Regina owns over 30 cats and that these cats keep her bar clean and are often seen watching over patrons from their perches in the wood worked vines and brambles within the business. Such is the marvel of the wood working in the Thirsty Thorn that it is also an instrument itself. In the early summer when the wind blows from down over the hills and into the valley if the windows and doors are kept open in certain arrangements the Thorn will actually produce haunting wind swept melodies from within its walls. Given the door arrangements these melodies can be in major or minor keys giving Regina the ability to choose various moods for her tavern during this time of the year. These winds also bring the scent of the vast gardens from the crimson keep, ensuring that Regina’s bar never smells sour.
