Originally built in the mid to late 1800s as two independent businesses, a saloon and a hotel, the two premises were united under the purchase of local businessman Harlan Jefferson in the early 1900s. He first viewed the property with the intention of salvaging the pressed tin ceiling in the saloon for use in his own house and demolishing both structures for resale as a vacant lot. Thankfully the timeless nature of the buildings both shone through and he bought both and merged them into one business. Born and raised on the frontiers of the 'wild west' as the 7th son of an enterprising prospector from the east coast, the opportunity to run a saloon and hotel business in a frontier town eagerly anticipating the arrival of the railroad seemed a very profitable idea, he christened the new venture 'The Great Nevada Saloon'. The hotel side of the business required an overhaul and so he installed plumbing and indoor bathrooms, his mantra for the hotel was "basic yet adequate for the traveling man." He also extended the building to include a 'Ladies' Lounge' "for those of a more delicate constitution to sit and dine in peace away from the rif-raf in the saloon". This would late go on to double up as a tearoom and cafe during morning and mid-day hours when the rest of the saloon was quiet.
This is another example of a lot that has been sitting, patiently waiting for completion and upload, in my game since about 2014. So I guess it's better late than never.
It is very much inspired by the saloons of the wild west and their iconic Honky-Tonk, Ragtime pianos and Pianolas. I could (and have) spend hours watching videos of saloon pianos and pianolas being played, unfortunately the game doesn't have an appropriate upright piano so you'll have to settle for the grand piano I've procured instead.
The lot was built on a 30 by 30 lot in the gorgeous world of Wild Wild West, costing 164,822 Simoleons furnished and 95,388 Simoleons unfurnished.
The lot is currently set as a 'Dive Bart' but also lends itself to use as a a Showtime 'Venue' as well as a 'Hangout' and 'Java Hut' too, if you swap out the bar in the hotel side for a University Life coffee shop.
The lot has been thoroughly play-tested during the years it has been in my game, but if you do find any issues then please let me know.
