Bradford’s Bar & Grill (CC Free)

This new dive bar community lot was inspired by a map in my other favourite game XCOM: Enemy Unknown.  Therefore, I cannot take full credit for the design of this lot–only the ways it was adjusted to make it available for the Sims.  Building a replica lot is a challenge of its own indeed, because I needed to find ways to make my lot look as similar as possible to the original inspiration.  Things I added to this dive bar that were not present in the map that inspired me include the bathrooms, the barrier to entry system (I like to keep all my bars and casinos off limits to underage sims now), and the karaoke machine.  That was added just because my sims needed a place to sing karaoke 😉

Bradford’s Bar & Grill was built on a flat 40 X 40 lot.  It was originally designed for Lucky Palms, but it fits well in most other sim worlds also.  (I recently added it to Isla Paradiso.)

Here are some pictures of Bradford’s Bar & Grill.

Like all of my uploads, this dive bar is CC FREE but does contain items from various EPs, SP, and the Sims 3 Store.  If you would like to add Bradford’s Bar & Grill to your game, it’s available for download in my studio at  Please leave a recommendation for it while you’re there 😉  Thanks!

    While I am not familiar with the other game, this place has plenty of space – not crowded at all & good for taking pictures! Plenty of fun things for Sims to do… so I can easily imagine this filling up and being a local hot spot! I really like the idea of the wraparound bar 🙂 Another GREAT build!!

      Thank you! It was a really fun build to put together 🙂 Now with Island Paradise installed, there are a lot more townies when I visit the lot. Prior to IP, bars and nightclubs were often empty. I’m glad they improved that lately! It’s much more fun to have other sims on the lots that you visit 😉

        I agree, If we have bars & nightclubs, townies should come – because the more the merrier 😉 I stopped going to them because it was dull being one of the few there. I am so GLAD IP appears to have fixed this… I just might have to place those lots back in my game again!

        Yeah, I was joking with my husband before IP came out and I said, “Going to the club to dance is no different than staying home and dancing by yourself in the livingroom!” It definitely isn’t a problem with my CPU rating either, because the Sims 3 rates my CPU as a 4, and that should’ve meant reasonably full nightclubs but mine were always empty 😦 It is definitely much more fun with sims around. I would have to recommend the Island Paradise expansion pack for this improvement alone!
