Sly: Sounds like fun. You and me, back to back...
Murray: Totally! Outnumbered... fighting impossible odds... it's perfect!
― Before taking down a group of rat guards[src]
To sneak into Dimitri's nightclub, Sly needed to sneak through an old wine cellar beneath town. Upon entering the cellar, he was accompanied by Murray, who helped him take down a group of rats guarding the entrance to the remainder of the wine cellar. After doing so, Murray lowered some bars for Sly to jump over. From that point on, Sly was on his own. After thanking Murray for his assistance, Sly pressed on through the hallway, which was secured with lasers and guarded by warthog guards with flashlights.
After sneaking past the security, he came across an air vent that led him into the backstage area of the nightclub. The hall was secured with stationary yellow lasers that could not be bypassed unless the patrolling guard was defeated. By using Stealth Slam, he took down the first guard, allowing him to venture further up, then pulled off the same move on another guard, thereby deactivating another set of lasers. After getting past more rat guards, Sly spotted another air vent. This one led into a side room connecting to the printing press room. Sly pulled out his binocucom and snapped pictures of the generator, the money-printing machine and Dimitri. He then returned to the safe house so he and the gang could formulate a plan.
