Poseidon Plaza is the one of the mall areas of Fort Frolic. With bars, a tobacco shop, and casinos, Poseidon Plaza was truly a place for the holidays. However, since the Rapture Civil War, the only visitors left are Splicers, looking for things to loot.

Poseidon Plaza is only accessible to the player after Jack has photographed Kyle Fitzpatrick's corpse and placed the picture in Sander Cohen's masterpiece. After passing through the Frozen Tunnel Jack emerges in the dark and dusty Plaza. He soon encounters an onrush of furious Spider Splicers who emerge from the walls.
Located on the second floor, Sir Prize was a casino filled with many slot machines. It used to be the place for citizens to gamble in Fort Frolic. It is also possible that they were rivals with Pharaoh's Fortune Casino.
Owned by Augustus Sinclair, this is a ruined bar full of Sander Cohen's "art" and many dead Splicers. It also contains a Power to the People station in the basement. However, activating the Power to the People will cause the "art" to come to life.
The record store is the most ruined shop in the plaza. It was owned by Silas Cobb, who sold music records to the public.
A casino that possibly had a rivalry with Sir Prize. This place is also known for many slot machines.
A staircase beside a geometric statue leads down to a large, flooded shopping pavilion. The pathway down is covered by a retractable grate. It will only become accessible after waking the Plastered Splicers from Sinclair Spirits.

The multiplayer map of Fort Frolic uses a redesigned version of Poseidon Plaza. The buisnesses and decoration of the mall remain mostly the same, but the layout has been changed and made more elaborate. A Rapture Metro is now located in Poseidon Plaza but the entrance to the station is sealed up. The plaza is given a new marquee for its appearance in the multiplayer utilizing the courier neon sign seen in Fort Frolic's main atrium.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- A newspaper clipping found in a photo studio in Artemis Suites contains the headline 'Riotous Mob Tears Apart Shopping District', above which is a photo of Poseidon Plaza.
- Like many locations in Rapture, Poseidon Plaza was named from Greek mythology. Poseidon was the Greek god of the sea, earthquakes and horses.
