A simple, small dive bar at Twinbrook. Twinbrook definitely lacks nightlife venues, so while on sick leave with my broken elbow, I've slowly been creating some clubs and bars for my favourite town.

The Backwater Beat is a rough and worn out little Southern style bar at the bayou. Suitable for sims looking for greasy food, cheap drinks, live music - or a good old fashioned bar brawl!

It's built on a 20x30 lot, I used one of the lots at Poker Flats Drive. No CC. Costs § 54 678. I was listening to CCR while building this lot to get to the right state of mind. :D

All expansions and stuff packs except HELS are required.

Have fun with the lot!

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 54 678

Number of bedrooms: Not Applicable
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion, game version 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.
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.

I like it. Thanks for the addition to Twinbrook. You're right, it was sorely needed.

Am currently playing Sim's Crossing's Banyan Bend - a remake of Twinbrook. (Has way more lots!) This will be an excellent addition to the town. Thanks for great work!

Thanks! I've also relocated all my Twinbrook sims to Banyan Bend. It's a great world!
