The Fungus Pit was one of the most popular places to hang out in Bashka. It was owned and ran by the Twi'lek Cheib'Kalla and most of the staff were good-looking Twi'lek females, whom he had hired as a means of protecting them from slavers. He also employed three armored Besalisks, Dovoul, Jebbis and Gatwer, as bouncers and the Kubaz Fitre, as a bartender.
During the time of the Clone Wars, the heroes of Cularin visited the Fungus Pit. While they were there, the Gotal slaver Noric Gestal and about two dozen other slavers attempted to capture the female Twi'lek staff members, to sell into slavery. However, the heroes and an some of the other patrons of the bar attacked the slavers and were able to save the Twi'leks.
