Patty's Party Planning Place (Luida's Bar in the Japanese versions) is a specialty location owned by Patty that appears alongside her in several entries in the series.
The services of the bar include creating and deleting player-made characters, housing party members unable to travel with the hero or ride in the wagon, and serving as a refuge for those removed from the line-up through the effects of the Blasto spell.
Luida's Place is located in the starting town of Aliahan. It consists of 2 separate NPCs behind counters who control party member creation and addition/dismissal from the player's party. On the second floor is the desk where new characters are created; and the first floor is where they are picked up. A character banished by the Blasto spell will return to Luida's Place, and the party will be forced to return to Aliahan to retrieve them.
Patty has settled in Gotha, managing the bar on the second floor of the castle. Her services can be utilised in the third generation, when the player has control over the human side of the party line up. Monty is found in the bar as well, allowing for total party control in one convenient location.
Patty has expanded her business considerably, being available in both the Dream and Real Worlds, and even the realm of the Dread Fiend himself. The bar is located in Port Haven, Alltrades Abbey, Felonia, Slimopolis, Greedmore Valley, and Gallows Moor.
As Monty does not appear in any version of VI, monster recruits can be dropped off at Patty's.
Patty was added to the game on its fifth anniversary, and set up shop in the city of Astoria. The bar allows players to change vocations, recruit A.I. controlled party members, and receive general advice from the lady herself.
The planning place appears in both games to let you rearrange your party.
There is an actual eatery in Tokyo, Japan called "Luida's Bar" based on it. The bar opened on January 28th, 2010, and rotates through themes based on past and upcoming titles.
