The Dirty Back Alley is one of the many back alleys in the streets of Denerim. This shares the same basic layout as the "Back Alley" random encounters on the city map.

This area does not become visible on the Denerim City Map until commencing the Back Alley Justice quest.


The Warden must deal with the gang here (as well as two more in the Dark Alley and Run-Down Back Street) to finish the Back Alley Justice quest.

The Warden will also find widow Tania for Notices of Death, the door of blood mage's relative for Blood of Warning (atop the northwest staircase), and entry to Quaint Hovel for Unbound (east side).
