The Three Flamingos Inn

Requires World Adventures and Ambitions
Built with version 4.0.87

The Three Flamingos Inn is a diner, bar and seedy motel: the preferred hangout of Twinbrook's population of bikers, hoons and adulterers

It features a kitchen/bar, diner chairs and tables, stall toilets, foostable, dance floor, large porches, car park for at least two cars (other cars/motorbikes are only for decor) service laundry with 2 clothes lines, two uber seedy cheap motel rooms with adjoining bathrooms, office with tv, home tattoo parlour and an inventor's bench. There is room out the back for some vegetable/fruit gardens.

This lot was specifically zoned residential because I wanted my Sims to be able to cook on the lot. It's suitable for Sims (without kids) who like to party, cater and have friends(!?) stay over. However, you could zone it a Community lot, and replace the stoves with bbqs and the cars with Winterhart's handy, Cars for Community Lots mod.

If you want the authentic bar look, go to Around the Sims 3 and check out their awesome bar set, complete with beer taps, bottles of liquor etc.

Optional tip for placement in the seedy side of Twinbrook:
After you've installed The Three Flamingos Inn lot locate the railway line road crossing near the Twinbrook Storage Corporation Warehouse buildings. Zoom in and delete/bulldoze the no visitors junkyard lot called "Juan's Pick n' Pull".

The lot should be empty, however you need to bulldoze the empty lot again so you can place 30x30 sized empty lot on the same spot. In the World Editor menu, click on the Lots tab and select a 30x30 lot. Press the alt key and carefully place this empty lot as close to the road (but not on the railway tracks) as possible. Go to the Select button and find The Three Flamingos Inn in the "Show Empty Houses" menu. Place the lot on the lot you've just created. Ensure that the ground level 3 Flamingos sign (in the car park) is on the street side.

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.

Thank you for the very specific placement tips. Lots can look great but things get sticky when you go to place them, not knowing where the creator had the lot or even in what neighborhood. So thanks that is really appreciated!
