Powers/Abilities/Functions: Red Rum's Club functioned as a typical nightclub, though it served very atypical clientèle in the forms of supervillains. It was equipped with a loaded bar, a jukebox and several tables at which to sit.

(Avengers VII#48 (fb) - BTS) - Red Rum's Club in Bagalia became known as a place to go if you wanted someone killed. Disgraced, the formerly heroic Gorilla-Man (Ken Hale) sought to have himself killed and decided to travel to Bagalia.

(Avengers VII#48) - The Gorilla-Man visited Red Rum's Club in Bagalia, where he drank several beers. He recounted his origin story to the various supervillains in the bar and admitted that he finally understood why the previous Gorilla-Man appeared joyful when he was killed by Hale. When the bartender suggested Hale find another bar to drink at for his own good, Gorilla-Man grabbed the throat of the bartender and asked if he was even listening to his story, exclaiming that the world had forgotten the legend of the Gorilla-Man. Moments later dropping the bartender, Gorilla-Man announced to Red Rum's patrons that he had heard the Club was a place to go if one wanted someone killed. Ready to die and having explained that anyone who killed him would be granted immortality, Gorilla-Man asked all of the villains in the Club if they wanted to be immortal but before any of the villains could respond, the mind-controlled Winter Hulk burst into the bar and grabbed the Gorilla-Man. The villains inside claimed the Gorilla-Man belonged to them and the Gorilla-Man begged the Winter Hulk to leave him to the villains but the Winter Hulk instead breathed radioactive Gamma fire, destroying the bar and absconding with the Gorilla-Man.
