I absolutely love the new Late Night EP. It adds the options of more social scenes like bars and clubs. And for the most part, they actually function okay.

The one thing I didn't like was that everything is so....classy. Even the low-end bars and clubs are still a little too "nice". All I want is a small, rundown, probably-not-up-to-code night club! I wasn't able to find one, so I built my own.



Shady's is modeled after a RL local club. The club is literally in the middle of nowhere, and looks a mess from the outside. But once you cross the threshold, it's the party of a lifetime!

I mirrored that idea with this lot. The outside is dingy; lots of graffiti, old posters, etc. The main building is an old house that was gutted and revamped into a dance floor. On the side there's an obvious, last minute new addition to the original floor plan. Is it properly insulated? Probably not. Is it functional? For the most part, yes. Just don't let the wind blow too hard!



The club has a small, cozy open floor plan. There's a big dance floor right off the entrance. On the stage, there's a DJ Booth* and a smaller dance floor for those daring enough to be on stage. To the left of the entrance is a wrap around bar with seating for 5. The bartender has two entrances into the bar. They can go through the hallway, or through the back door. I did this to create a backup route just in case one entrance is blocked for some reason. Unfortunately, when I play tested, sims tend to like to enter the back door and go through the bar. It's not the end of the world, just something to take note of.



Now then, what's a hole-in-the-wall club without its disgusting bathrooms? The bathrooms are my favorite part, and I spent the most time on them. Bathroom walls and stalls are the greatest place for human expression. Where else could you learn "Jeannie loves Harry" and "John's mother is a llama"? Or my favorite, "call 555-1234 for a great time!" I used just about all of the wall writings at Club Crimsyn to properly spread the good news that can only come about with a black Sharpie marker.



Shady's is classified as a dance club, so your sims will behave on it accordingly. You will obviously need Late Night for this lot to function.

*The DJ Booth is a store item, but it makes no difference if you do not have it. The game will just spawn something similar in it's place.

Wanna add more ambiance to the club?
I've found that playing your own Custom Music in a dance club makes the place ten times more fun to play with! If you don't have the DJ booth, I still recommend having a stereo on the lot. That way you can be in control of the music.

"Unfortunately, when I play tested, sims tend to like to enter the back door and go through the bar. It's not the end of the world, just something to take note of."
Maybe they don't want their spouses or whoever to see them going in.
Anyway, thanks for a more realistic lot!

This is brilliant! I agree, there wasn't enough diversity in the clubs, at least broad-spectrum. There's poor then there's POOR. This is awesome! Thanks a bunch!

Now this is what I'm talkin bout. You did a good job. Thanks for sharing I thought LN's night clubs were too fancy, as well. I want to make my own. What exactly makes this function as a night club? I mean - can I put this in Sunset Valley or does it have to go in Bridgeport? Is there a specific object that it needs to make it a bar?

That just means that it's lot type is set to dance club, so sims will treat it as one. You can place it wherever you want

Just a quick questions about the custom content you listed:

CC Not Included:-Grey Corrugated Roof by QBUILDERZ

Is there another way to get to this roof? Not everyone is a MTS2 Staff member, which is the message I get when I click on the link.

Indeed my sims like to take the back door, but it's not a problem, I really enjoy the place, it made my town a lot more lively without having to add a building (Kinda not goes well with Sunset Valley)

Where I come from, these kinds of bars are called "hole in the walls", and are packed on the weekends and usually busy weekdays after work, too. I have it in my slum section of MySimRealty's Brooklyn Heights, and even the celebs show up to get their boogie on!!

Thanks!
