How to “pass time” in the bar and wait for Tifa

While Tifa has made Cloud an exceptionally tasty looking drink, there are a few things you can do inside of the bar while you wait for Tifa, Barret, and the rest of Avalanche to finish their meeting downstairs.

First, head over to the Jukebox. This is your first introduction to Jukeboxes, which can play the various Music Disc collectibles that you’ll find throughout the game. You can also collect one of your first Music Discs here – Tifa’s Theme. Once you’ve finished grabbing the disc, head over to the corner closest to the door. Here you’ll find a dartboard.

You can play darts and pick up a Music Disc while waiting for Tifa and the others in Seventh Heaven.

You’ll want to interact with the dartboard to kick off a sweet little mini-game which challenges you to complete a game of darts. This is jus the first of several mini-games you can run into throughout the game, so go ahead and get acquainted with the controls and play through a match. Once that is done, you’ll be able to finish up and then Tifa should return back to the main area of the bar, allowing the story to progress.
