You've never been on an RP server, have you?

What he said! On my server (RP-PVP), RP often happens in the Park and other such areas. That large empty Hall in the Dwarven DIstrict you mentioned? That's where my guild holds our meetings! It's set up perfectly for a large group of players to congregate. While I'm sure some areas were unfortunately left unfinished, I think Blizzard very deliberately left a few open and empty Halls/areas for players to use.

In fact, the wine house in the Park is my shop on my RP server.... wait a minute, how did you get in? Don't tell me you found my drug- ERRRR I MEAN beautiful weather today eh?

anybody knows a good place to have S&M rp?

I think you do have the answer here. I think Blizzard provided places for people to do such things.I know on Shadow Council they have (or at least had) in the Park a PC run tavern to do RP in. As I recall, they had a no DK/Warlock policy there.I know when I was in a RP guild we occasionally went into one of the Ironforge apartments to meet.

Shadow Council still has a player-run tavern in the Park, and the "no DK" policy was from the previous owners. In fact, "The Golden Leaf" has changed hands multiple times over the last 5 years, but it has maintained a "most days of the week, for 2 hours a night" open policy, with other changes as current management sees fit. The only one usually maintained is "it's a public place, act like a person normally would in public so people can converse at the tables over their drinks."We have our share of griefers we have to ask to stop being disruptive before we report to the GMs (and yes, we can; it's an RP server, so once someone refuses to respond to a polite whisper asking them to not be a jerk, they are reportable), but overall, it's been a very successful, long running social RP event for ShC.We'll uh, see what happens in Cata, given some of the leaked screenshots of the Park...Other empty buildings get used as homes, for guild meetings, parties, etc. Some RPers grumble there aren't -enough- empty places in some of the other cities/towns. Let alone guild or player housing capability.

When running into buildings like the ones mentioned here, I've always wondered and imagined how it would be on an roleplaying server. So many unused taverns and inns that have tables, seats, and bartenders walking around just seem like the best places for RP. Makes me want to reroll on an RP server even more.

@Zalvi24 - there's this little crypt underneath the Cathedral, complete with an iron maiden and a pervert priest for all your desires. :-)

Ages ago, on my RP server, my main used to sell leatherworking out of the tent in Thunder Bluff between the mining trainers building and the ramp to Spirit Rise.My hunter's guild uses one of the tents on Spirit Rise as a guild hut.Oddly, I'm unaware of any unused spaces in Orgrimmar or Undercity. In fact, the Orgrimmar inscription trainer was put into a building with Drumlore, who has several quests dealing with the silithids.Frankly, I hope Blizzard keeps some unused buildings available for the players to use. It adds a bit of variety to the server.
