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.

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.
