Southern Comfort is a bar located in Tulley, Tennessee. It was here that Stefan Salvatore and Niklaus Mikaelson tracked down Ray Sutton in the Season 3 premiere The Birthday. Stefan and Klaus sought out Ray so he could lead them to his werewolf pack, whom Klaus planned to turn into the first of his new race of vampire-werewolf hybrids after becoming a true hybrid himself. Klaus and Stefan were led to Southern Comfort after they obtained tips about where to find werewolves from people they met while they traveled up and down the East Coast.
While at the bar, Stefan and Klaus tortured Ray for information about his pack by dipping darts in wolfsbane and throwing them at him. All the while, the majority of the bar patrons ignored his pained screams, as they had been compelled by Stefan before they approached him to ensure they wouldn't notice their activities.
