"Escape from Dragon House"
Fangtasia is the name of a fictional night club featured in the "Southern Vampire Mysteries" series of novels by author Charlaine Harris. It first appeared in the first book in the series, Dead Until Dark. The setting has also been used on the HBO television series True Blood. It first appeared in True Blood in the fourth episode of season one, "Escape from Dragon House".
Fangtasia is a bar that caters exclusively to the vampire subculture. It was originally owned by Eric Northman - the vampire Sheriff of Area 5 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Eric's support staff at Fangtasia consisted of his manager, Pam De Beaufort, a bartender named Longshadow, a hostess named Ginger and eventually newly-made vampire Tara Thornton, who also worked as a stripper. When Eric became deeply involved in vampire politics and feared that he might soon meet his end at the hands of "ancient pissed off vampire" Russell Edgington, he signed the property over to Pam De Beaufort, who kept it running same as it ever was in his absence.
