The location city of the GTA 5 game, namely Los Santos (a virtual version of Los Angeles), was not an instant crush for me, but as I progressed through the single-player story, I slowly and gradually fell for the place. I've never been attracted to the style or architecture of West Coast, or tropical, or Hollywood Blvd, but this game managed to force me to become a fan in a weird way.

Most of the buildings in Los Santos are sadly only decorations, so you can't enter, can't see the interiors; when I decided to recreate the "Hit 'n' Run caf�", I had to build the interior based only on my ideas how a Los Angeles downtown caf� could look inside. I set it to be a Hangout type community lot (Ambitions EP) because instead of a Late Night bar or a University type coffee station, I placed a Food Register (World Adventures EP) inside, to sell all kind of bistro meals all EPs can offer. By the food register you can also buy raw meat and fish, vegetables and herbs here, as well.

As a Hangout, it attracts a bit more townie visitors than Late Night bars or lounges (as I experienced); apart from eating and socializing, they can play pool and dominoes, dance, read, and check their fortune from the fortune cookies machine. I also put a photo booth inside, not especially for taking photos, but well, we all like public woohoo, right? :P
I playtested it in three different neighborhoods of my game and it worked without problems, the game will assign one of your townies to become the food merchant, most likely an unemployed one; sometimes you have to wait several sim-hours for that to happen.

No CC on the lot, it requires the EPs: World Adventures, Late Night, Ambitions, Generations, Seasons, Showtime, University Life and Island Paradise (oh, those coconut cocktails on the menu!)

Lot Size: 20x20
Lot Price (furnished): 73,034
Lot Price (unfurnished): 37,416

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.

More please! I would definitely live in Michael's house, I'd definitely go to a Vinewood club, I'd definitely trash a Sandy Shores biker bar!

I feel the very very same! A Vinewood adult night club is under construction in my Los Santos now.
If you haven't checked it yet, I recommend to give a try to Coasterboi's Angel City (can be easily found by google). Even if you don't like to play in custom worlds (sometimes it can be laggy, yes), Coasterboi recreated tons of Los Santos/ San Andreas lots in it, so you can use them in your other neighborhoods.

Really loving your GTA lots, especially since they're cc free! Thank you!

This is great! I've been playing a game in Costerboi's Angel City for a few months now, and just placed this on one of those empty 20x20 lots in the downtown area. I don't even have GTA5 and I still love it! Fits the town perfectly. Thanks for sharing it, and I will be checking out some of your other builds, too!
