Name: ZOOLIE'S INTERSTELLAR CANTINA Lot Size: 40 X 40 Lot Type: Dive Bar Cost furnished: 152,048 Cost unfurnished: 71,463 EPs: All through IP SPs: FLS Store: Lots of it. See below for full list. (There is also a store- and cc-free option for download.)
Located next to the crystal shafts in the Lunar Lakes mountains, Zoolie's Interstellar Cantina is a complete dive, unfit for any but the hardiest immune systems. Despite its rundown, unsanitary conditions, it provides enough entertainment to separate the rough-and-tumble local miners from their weekly paychecks. More notoriously, it's far enough from the prying eyes of the settlement security teams to attract even less savory types like smugglers, who take advantage of the private alcoves to make deals of all sorts; pirates, who enjoy the dubious charms of the green girl in the basement; and itinerant spacers who are either haggling for parts and services for their ships, or who might just be addicted to the back patio's pineapple bubbles.
A savvy blue alien sells the ship parts and services from small stands lining the side wall of the cantina. Rumor has it some guy and a kid tried to fast talk him out of parts for a J-type 327 Nubian cruiser last week but he wasn't taken in by the hand-waving.
The interior first floor has a bar, several seating alcoves, and two all-in-one bathrooms. (No doubt the owner charges the miners for showers.) The second floor has another bar, another bathroom, a dominoes table, an arcade game, a robotic blackjack table, and a stage for jam sessions. In the basement there's a stereo and dance floor, plus a private bedroom for whatever it is that might transpire.
There is a lot of store stuff in here, and a bit of cc. The lot was done for the Groundwork Building Contest, and I was going for a very specific look. The good news is, most of the store items like particular lights, stools, deco, etc, can be easily replaced with something else or just left out if you don't have them. But be aware that the Monte Vista grimy wallpapers cover most of the walls, and your building will look odd without them.
