The sign above the entrance

"You're doing fine work here, keep up the effort."
Jack Sparrow to Will Turner[src]

The Twelve Daggers, also known as Cantina, was one of the two most frequented taverns in the pirate port of Tortuga.[1] A pirate band was known to play in there while inhabitants eat their food or share a drink.

"And how do you intend to harvest these 99 souls in three days?"
"Fortunately he was mum as the condition in which these souls need be."
"Ah! Tortuga."
Joshamee Gibbs and Jack Sparrow[src]

During the search for the Dead Man's Chest, Jack Sparrow and Joshamee Gibbs went into the cantina to recruit sailors to crew aboard the Black Pearl, though they were really gathering 99 souls needed to settle Sparrow's debt with Davy Jones. Four men who signed up were blighted with all manner of ailments and would hardly have made worthy crew members under normal circumstances.[2] The arrival of former commodore, and now disgraced, James Norrington, who threatened Jack with his pistol, caused a huge bar brawl, ending with Norrington being ejected from the cantina and thrown in with the pigs. A pirate band was known to play in the cantina, and continued their jigs even during the fight as Jack and Gibbs made their escape.[2]
