This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Are you tired of only having the same two professional bars to choose from when building community lots? I know I am.

I created this ice themed bar specifically with the Seasons Limited Edition Ice Lounge venue in mind. I wanted it manned by actual bar staff but neither of the LN professional bars fit the theme.


This bar DOES NOT require the Ice Lounge set or Seasons but you MUST have Late Night installed.

It costs 1,950 simoleans and can be found under;
Entertainment > Parties
Surfaces > Misc.
Dining Room > Bars

Things to note
This bar is NOT CAStable due to the nature of the original it is based on and the fact that it is meant to be made of ice.
The mixologists generated DO NOT automatically dress in Outerwear. They will dress as per standard EA code depending on what lot type you place the bar on.
Made with patch 1.57. Functions fine on fully patched games and should work on previous patch levels provided LN is installed.

Polygon Counts:
High Detail = 1918
Low Detail = 866

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


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.

"I wanted it manned by actual bar staff but neither of the LN professional bars fit the theme."

Does this mean it doesn't get staffed with NPC bartenders, or that it does, but you don't like them?

Sorry to confuse you. This bar DOES get staffed by a game-generated mixologist. They won't wear Outerwear clothing on their own though I am afraid.
What I meant was that I wanted to have manned bars in the Limited Edition Ice Lounge venue but didn't like either of the existing EA bars as they didn't fit the ice theme.
I also have a Supernatural themed professional bar I am working on at the moment that should be released in the next few weeks.

I'm happy to see this, because I don't understand why EA hasn't added any more professional bars to the catalog. Thank you so much for sharing your bar!

Nicely done! we have so few professional bar choices, it's great to have another one, especially one that fits a theme that's really been lacking in playability, the ice lounge.

I don't have said set, so I probably won't be getting this one, but it does look fab!
I am SO happy to hear you're working on more professional bars, as I always make my own venues, and only having 2 bars is getting on my nerves. So thank you in advance

Too many juice bars and only two professional bars. This is very welcomed, thank you. I was hoping for a professional ice bar instead of the usual juice bar when EA first announced the Ice Lounge.

I don't know if you take requests or not but if you do I am wondering if you would like to also create 'Juice on the House' into LN bar. It is from the Viva Las Vegas Living set if you own it and are willing.

I look forward to your SN LN bar.

Thank you so, so much for this! I also don't understand the lack of professional bars - it's not like there aren't lots of different venue types in game, after all! I loved the idea of an ice lounge - and then never actually used it because not having a proper bar just looked wrong.

You are a star for sharing this!
