Dont come here unless you're looking for a bottle of cheap beer, a bit of dancing to the best music the south has to offer, getting hit on by some drunk, or a black eye and a uncomfortable sleep on the back steps. This here is a proper dive bar.

Built in the 60s by the late Frank Herbert, LakeView Bar is the perfect addition to any town and the perfect after-work stop for any sim. Theres nothing within these walls but the best of times and the greatest of stories and future regrets. If you're wanting some cocktail, then you're in the wrong part of town.

(Why is that man talking about unicorns?)

The barkeep will keep the drink flowing (and keep adding the bottles to your tab) until the early hours of the morning (closing time varies depending on how many wives come looking for their men). So why not stop in and have yourself a bit of peace before heading home to the misses?

Lot has been playtested and seems bug-free. The bartender has showed up without fail EXEPT for when I was taking these pictures. In fact, she was in front of the bar hitting on some woman, go figure. I used a few items from Fast Lane Stuff, but I doubt its required to play. I made sure to keep the lot nice and small so it can be easily added to your neighborhood, one thing EA failed to do.

Anyway, enjoy! I've got a few more things in the works, so watch for my name.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks! I am currently using this in a remake neighborhood of Sunset Valley with LN added (courtesy of El Flel). It is a perfect dive bar!!
I just bought Fast Lane and will reinstall your lot with the Fast Lane items in it! I am thrilled!
Thanks for capturing the essence of "dive"!

Hey, gotta say that I use this bar in every town I play. I love how dingy-yet-functional it is. Many a sim has made an important hookup here.

It's just the right size needed for my neighborhood. Only lowkey downside is that sims can't dance on counters/tables but I'm not even worried about it. Thank you for making this!
