"There is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction..." - Andrew Ryan
- “He heard me sing at the Limbo Room, came up all bashful. He liked hearin' songs about what it's really like to live in this town…”
- ― Grace Holloway[src]
While it was still in business The Limbo Room was a popular club for the districts downtrodden residents. Grace sang songs about what it was like to be poor in Rapture, attracting many citizens. One of these patrons was Grace's lover, James. When he disappeared, she was afraid she'd be next, and decided to sing pro-Rapture songs like Rise, Rapture, Rise.

Right after Subject Delta enters, he finds the Hypnotize Plasmid as a gift from Eleanor Lamb. Two Splicers are enjoying a romantic evening by dancing on the stage. This is a great opportunity for Delta to try out his new Plasmid.
This room was where the customers checked their coats or belongings, paid for their drinks, or bought a new Plasmid or Tonic. Citizens could enjoy a more intimate night out while still hearing the music from the other room. A small telephone room is also to be found here. A broken Gatherer's Garden is located on the other side of the counter and a Health Station is directly adjacent to the entryway.
In the main room, patrons would enjoy a nice evening with friends or loved ones, while listening to the smooth vocals of singers like Grace Holloway. The stage takes up a good part of the room. Several sets of tables and chairs can be found for the audience, most of them now under the debris from the partially fallen-in ceiling. One table is set up with a candle, bottle of wine, and a gift, most likely by the two dancing Splicers found on the stage.
Grace Holloway and other performers at the Limbo would often wait backstage where they could get dressed, apply makeup in front of a mirror, or take a brief respite between numbers. A single blue dress can still be found hanging on a hook over a set of Anti-Personnel Rounds. The audio diary, Closing the Limbo Room can be found on the vanity mirror next to some Trap Rivets.
This was where the supervisor did his paperwork and kept watch over the Limbo Room. With a large window overviewing the first area, he or she could monitor who came and left the establishment. A Power to the People station is installed here.

Behind the ScenesEdit
- In BioShock: The Collection, the poster for The Black Dream found in The Limbo Room, previously reading "Ava Tate presents", has been changed, now reading "Sander Cohen presents". The developers of the remastered version of BioShock 2 did the exact same thing in the Gift Shop of Ryan Amusements.
