There is definitely some sort of tavern. Though instead of traditional alcohol they serve mixed, colorful, tasty drinks. Also it apparently seems to serve as more of a gathering place and restaurant than it does tavern, since guests are rare, and everyone living here has a house of their own.

Spooky Clearing

As the pebble flies towards the vampire, the entire clearing gets just a bit colder, especially just around the pebble. The end result is the pebble getting coated in several inches of ice before it reaches the vampire -- just in case it's set to explode or anything --, before the vampire swats it aside.
"Patronizing? I wouldn't dream of patronizing you."
Deepwood grumbled. He took a flight through the branches of the top of the trees, hiding.

He tried to sneak as best as he could and then jump on the vampire's back.
