Three-quarters of the Mole's Town lies beneath ground in deep damp warm cellars connected by a warren of tunnels. Mole's Town brothel is located in the cellars, with nothing on the surface but a wooden shack no bigger than a privy, with a red lantern hung over the door.[1]


The Mole's Town brothel is regularly frequented by the Brothers of the Night's Watch. It is said that brothers go to Mole's Town to dig for "buried treasure", euphemism for going to Mole's Town to drink, unwind and engage the services of whores. They are breaking their vows but this particular kind of oathbreaking is ignored as Lord Commanders know some men find it impossible to be celibate and after they are done with the whores the men will return to the Wall and their duties.[1]
