"The Vatican" is a dive bar located in Greendale County, Colorado. It's a local watering hole not far from Greendale Community College and patronized by a few regulars at the school. GCC alumni Britta Perry is currently employed there as a bartender. Since she started working there, her friends in the "Save Greendale Committee" have become frequent customers. Its first appearance was in the Season Six episode "Queer Studies & Advanced Waxing".

The Vatican[]

The Vatican is the palatial estate of the Roman Catholic Church leaders and popes which since 1937 has been their principal residence. The various buildings include administrative offices, a library and a museum. The structures also are attached to the basilica of St.Peter's. The religious connotations of the bar's name is meant to contrast starkly with Britta's own beliefs as she has identified herself as an atheist ("Comparative Religion").
