- "Clone on the run, eh, ner vod? Don't worry. Imperials don't come in here. Made sure of it."
- ―The bartender
In 19 BBY, the Oyu'baat tapcaf was staffed by a male Mandalorian bartender. The bartender was both sarcastic and sympathetic toward his fellow Mandalorians, providing warnings for when a patron of the Oyu'baat had been placed on the galactic bounty hunting list. He was also understanding toward the plight of clone deserters from the Grand Army of the Republic who came to Mandalore, and was willing to keep them secret from those who would persecute the former troopers. The bartender also reached an agreement with the commander of Imperial forces in charge of establishing a garrison on land leased to the Galactic Empire outside of Keldabe, ensuring that Imperials would remain out of the Oyu'baat cantina.
