The Slat is the Dregs' main base. Many of the gang's members hang out here when idle, and some live there. Known inhabitants include Kaz Brekker, and formerly Inej Ghafa and Per Haskell.

It is described as "just another house in the worst part of the Barrel," with three low-ceilinged stories, an attic, and a gabled roof. Kaz used his own money to have the walls insulated and patched so that it was dry, unlike many of the other buildings that had been built without foundations.

Kaz himself resides on the top floor. The attic rooms were converted into his office and bedroom.
