― Poster[src]

Athena's Glory is a prestigious apartment complex in Rapture which was inaccessible to the player in BioShock. It is advertised in posters in Medical Pavilion and Fort Frolic, which refer to it as "Rapture's Lap of Luxury."


The following is based on the BioShock: Rapture novel and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Elaine McDonagh mentions a dining area located at the complex, where she and Bill McDonagh had dinner with Andrew Ryan and some of his colleagues, including Dr. Steinman in 1949.[1]
