J's BAR is the first location in Resident Evil Outbreak.[Note 1] It is explored during the Outbreak scenario.


After the initial opening cutscenes, the player (as Kevin Ryman, Mark Wilkins, George Hamilton, Cindy Lennox, David King, Alyssa Ashcroft, or Jim Chapman) will begin in this room. The two barrels in front of the bar window can be pushed toward the front door. This creates a barricade to protect the door.

After a certain period of time, the zombies will break through the front door. This will trigger another cutscene. After this, zombies will be able to enter the room freely. If the player is in the area for long enough, Will becomes a zombie as well.

Bob will follow the player around the room. He can be shouldered to help him move faster and in a clear direction. If Bob is attacked enough times, he will die.

Sitting on the front end of the bar counter is a Handgun or a Butcher Knife. Behind the bar counter is a First Aid Spray or Handgun and a PESTICIDE SPRAY. At the kitchen area next to the bar, there is a Butcher Knife or First Aid Spray. At the far end of the bar, underneath the stuffed fish, there is a restorative item. On Easy mode, there is a First Aid Spray; on Normal mode, there is a Green Herb; and on Hard and Very Hard modes, there is Green Herb or a Blue Herb.

There are three separate doorways in the room: the two doors to the east of the bar that lead to the Men's restroom and Women's restroom and the locked "Staff Room" door.

On Easy mode, the Staff Room Key is found on the eastern end of the bar; on Normal mode, it is found in the Men's Restroom; and on Hard and Very Hard modes, it can be found by searching Will's body after the zombies break through the door. Alternatively, Alyssa can pick the lock on the door using her Picking Tool or the player can break the door down using attacks.

Once the door is open, the players can advance. Bob will need to be near the doorway in order to advance.

The door leads to the Stairs between 1F and 2F.
