East 84st Street and 3rd Avenue
Manhattan, New York
Barney's apartment is the apartment where Barney lives. It is also known as the Fortress of Barnitude and The Heart of Bachelor Country.
It is a two bedroom apartment, one occupied by Barney himself and the other occupied by his suits, which are Barney's family. Barney owns two 300 inch flat screens that were installed to the walls of his living room and bedroom.
In the bedroom, there is a king-sized bed, full-size blanket, and one pillow. Also, the Lion's Head stonework from the Arcadian is bolted above Barney's bed. In the bathroom, there is only one towel, no hair dryer, and a toilet seat that unless applied continuous pressure will not stay down. In the hallway there is a large display of Barney's porn that is professionally lit. In the living room is a life sized "Stormtrooper" (formerly a Clone Trooper) that is actually not placed there in order to drive away women but is rather "just awesome". The kitchen doesn't have a real oven, but an oven made of cardboard. This apartment is designed by Barney Stinson to be a place that when a girl wakes up the apartment will tell her to leave. Barney also possesses a katana which is displayed next to his couch.
In The Broath, Barney's girlfriend, Quinn moves in with him. In Trilogy Time, Although, Quinn has sold all of her stuff because Barney wants his apartment as it is, she wants to use her own coffee mugs instead of his, which Barney doesn't approve of. He tells her that he has to assert his dominance as a man in his apartment, which results in a fight between them.
In The Fortress, Robin refuses to live in Barney's apartment after the wedding and asks him to sell the place. When Barney shows reluctance of doing so, she holds an open house without his consent. Barney tries to scare away the prospective buyers buying showing them the features which he used on his one night stands, but to his surprise, a couple tells them that they will buy the place. However, when the couple informs Robin that they plan on demolishing the place, she yells at them to leave.
