At least three Dwarf bars are named in the canon, as well as an un-named fourth where Carrot breaks up a riot just by speaking sternly to them, and a possible fifth where Hwel and Tomjon take Verence in Wyrd Sisters. It is very likely there are more. In Raising Steam, Ardent the rogue grag is seen touring them to stir up trouble. The limitation of The Compleat Ankh-Morpork is that they are not named; presumably the compilers of the in-universe directory thought they were writing for a human readership and other-species bars would be of limited interest. And of course Terry could have invented a few new ones for books published after The Compleat Ankh-Morpork. AgProv (talk) 22:21, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Hah! Fooled me again with the location (not Quarry St.) but I don't think we can assume all the Dwarfs are around Cable and Treacle Mine any more. There are too many of them, closely as they traditionally have been quartered. Besides, I think we already know of neighbouring Dwarf and Troll businesses in the general Elm St. area; they haven't had a Koom Valley for years.
Also it's Quarry Lane. --Old Dickens (talk) 22:59, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
