Junior's[1] was a club first visited by Yang Xiao Long in the "Yellow" Trailer.

It was owned and managed by Junior Xiong and the Xiong Family, since the henchmen who were working throughout the club were under his command.

The club was severely damaged during the fight between Yang, Junior and his henchmen. As of "Painting the Town...", Junior and his men managed to finish repairing it.

Following the Fall of Beacon, the club was likely abandoned following the Grimm entering the city.


The club acted as the center of the Xiong Family, and Melanie and Miltia Malachite appeared to have a higher rank than the other henchmen in the club. While the club was a legitimate business, it has a backroom that served as the headquarters of the Xiong Family during Hei Xiong's rule over the syndicate.

Melanie and Miltia were Junior's bodyguards, as they could be seen with him at the bar. The henchmen were spread out across the club, keeping an eye on the attendees.

The club was located in an industrial district of Vale. The building itself was an old brick building with arched windows. Entrance was via a pair of large sliding doors that open automatically. The dance floor was directly ahead, down a flight of stairs. Six large crystalline pillars surrounded the floor, with the DJ's booth located on the opposite side from the entry stairs. A long bar was along the left side of the dance floor. There were several balconies along the walls overlooking the dance floor, connected by stairs. Above the dance floor on the ceiling was a rotating ring shaped rig of light, laser and holographic projectors. Additional projectors were mounted on fixed rigs between the columns.


At some point in the past, Roman Torchwick was taken to the club by two corrupt members of the Vale Police Department that were working for the Xiong Family to see Hei Xiong. During the meeting, Hei Xiong informed Roman that his schemes were getting in his way and starting to harm his syndicate's reputation and threatened him to back off or he would end up regretting his decisions. However, Roman wasn't frightened by Hei Xiong's threat and later left the club.

In the "Yellow" Trailer, Yang visited Junior's in the hopes of gaining information about her mother Raven Branwen while Roman hired some of Junior's men to help him with a Dust heist. Junior and Yang shared some banter before Yang gets down to business, forcing him to answer her. Junior however had no information and his henchmen came to his aid. Yang apologized and offered to "kiss and make up". He fell for it, allowing Yang to punch him across the club.

This caused a fight to break out in the club, with Yang dominating the henchmen. Melanie and Miltia soon intervene, but were eventually defeated as well after their fight caused massive damage to the club. Junior then returned with his rocket launcher and fired at Yang before facing her head-on. When he accidentally riped some of her hair, she went into a rage and hit him so hard that he flew right out of the club's window and onto the street. Following the fight, Junior was more willing to help Yang with any information he had in her mother. However, he revealed to her that he really knew nothing at all about her and was unable to help Yang find her mother.

Yang and Neptune Vasilias visited the club in "Painting the Town..." to question Junior about Roman Torchwick's activities. In the time since the "Yellow" Trailer, Junior had rebuilt the club and there was no sign of the damage Yang caused. When she was satisfied that Junior was telling the truth about not knowing anything of Roman's plans, she left peacefully despite her earlier threats to the contrary.

Junior's henchmen clearly retained a healthy level of fear and respect for Yang's abilities. The DJ was so afraid of her that he hid behind his turntables and even a slight glare from Yang was enough to get him to take the needle off of a scratched record.

The establishment was likely abandoned following the Fall of Beacon due to Grimm entering the main city.

  • It is interesting to note that the only colors that seem to appear in the club are Red, White and Black. These are the colors of the three other girls from Team RWBY, but also the color palette of the Grimm.
  • Junior's is the setting of two official non-canon videos. The first features Jaune Arc dancing to "Gold" from the RWBY: Volume 1 Soundtrack, while the second features Russel Thrush dancing to an auto-tuned song version of his own lines while Ursai dance in the background.
