"Why don't I stay here with the ship? I can keep an eye on things. While you're gone. Trust me, I'll take good care of the Pearl."
"Nonsense. I need your keen eye and sound judgment in choosing a crew, Barbossa. A noble offer, but I insist you accompany me to the

Hector Barbossa and Jack Sparrow[src]

The Faithful Bride was a tavern on the island of Tortuga in the 18th century.

Jack Sparrow's adventures

Faithful Bride Bar Fight

A bar fight inside the Faithful Bride

"How dare ye start a fight in my father's tavern? Couldn't ye do your pickpocketing somewhere else tonight? Someplace nicer, whose patrons wouldn't wreck the place."
Arabella Smith to Jack Sparrow[src]

Prior to the quest for the Sword of Cortés, Arabella Smith worked as a barmaid in the Faithful Bride, owned at the time by her father and her mother, Laura. One night, the infamous pirate captain Torrents came to the tavern and kidnapped Laura.[1] A few years later, Jack Sparrow started a brawl in the tavern, leading to Arabella joining his misfit crew.[2]

Some time later, an adult Sparrow returned to the tavern with Hector Barbossa and Billy Turner in tow so as to find some new crew members for his ship, the Black Pearl. He recruited a drunkard called Catastrophe Shane and was about to sign on another pirate named Henry when the Pirate Lord Eduardo Villanueva arrived and forced Henry and several of the other men in the tavern into joining his crew aboard the Centurion.[3]

Mid-18th century

Many years afterwards, Sparrow brought Will Turner to the tavern while he met with Joshamee Gibbs to procure a motley crew for the journey to Isla de Muerta.[4] Some time later, Elizabeth Swann, the daughter of Governor Weatherby Swann, was kidnapped by Sparrow's former crewmember Hawkins and locked in one of the rooms in the Bride. While Jack fought a duel with Hawkins, Elizabeth decided not to wait for him and Will and escaped on her own.[5]

During the War of Jolly Roger, Carver was the bartender of the Faithful Bride. At some point before the War Against Piracy, the former Gunner of the legendary pirate ship Nemesis became a regular visitor in the tavern, often telling the stories of the time he served under captain James Sterling to other visitors of the tavern.[6] Some time later, Arabella Smith returned to Tortuga to take over as the owner and operator of the tavern.[7]

Concept art of the Bride.

The Faithful Bride appeared, from the outside, to be little more than an oversized shack, and was constructed from the timbers of wrecked boats. It was said that the tavern smelled of tar, salt, seaweed and fish. The roof was noticably too weak to keep rain from dripping inside the tavern.[2] The sign above the door was a politically-incorrect painting of a smiling bride holding a bouquet in her manacled hands.[8]
