I didn't find the Cockatoos nightclub as a build interesting at all in GTA 5 at first, but later I was driving by it in the middle of the night, and I was captivated how nice it looked with its yellow and white neon lights, it was decent, elegant and I wanted to recreate it quickly. I knew that I couldn't do justice to the illuminated exterior because lighting works differently in Sims 3, but on the other hand, I have had the freedom to create the interior by my own ideas.



STORE CONTENT: For the first time in my uploads, I had to use one Store content: the building is decorated with tons of climbing ivy, outside and inside, and it is downloadable from the EA Store for free, from here: K2 Ivy by EA At least it shows for me as free, I hope it is for other simmers too. I don't recommend to download this lot without having the K2 Ivy as well.



I have set this nightclub to be a Fusion Lounge (Late Night EP) because I wanted it to be as clean and elegant as possible. In GTA 5 it's in West Vinewood, and not far from Rockford Hills (based on real-life Beverly Hills), so I have assumed while building that the owners want to attract Vinewood celebrities and the rich Rockford Hills folks, so it has to be elegant. You can find a dance floor and a piano in the bar, also a karaoke and hot tub in the other room for wilder skinny-dipping entertainment. Nectar racks can be found in the bar as well, and nectar drinking is extremely popular in this lounge so far in my game.



PLAYTEST: The lot will generate a Pianist and a Mixologist NPC. Sometimes it takes several sim-hours to happen. I haven't found routing problems so far. Sometimes the stereo music can only be heard after I toggle disabled/enabled in Live mode manually. There are three special effects machine (Late Night EP) inside the hot tub room; when you first enter the lot in Live mode, you may have to configure them manually otherwise they may be turned off by default. Recommended effects: Bubbles and Fog.



No CC and no spawners on the lot. Only one piece of EA Store content. EPs required: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, Generations, Seasons, Showtime, University Life and Island Paradise.

Lot Size: 30x30
Lot Price (furnished): 115,208
Lot Price (unfurnished): 63,645

Additional Credits:
to Rockstar Games for the design of GTA 5 buildings; and to Coasterboi for the custom neighborhood Angel City that can be seen on my photos as a background.
