Taffy Lewis is the owner of Taffy's Snake Pit Bar where much entertainment occurs. There is music, exotic dancing, something being smoked in pipes. But the place isn't downmarket - all the clientele seem to be well dressed. Taffey is obviously used to policemen and has little time for them. Deckard's threats don't wash with him and he dismisses Deckard with a free drink.
