I think this building fits perfect with the rest of the standard Maxis downtown community lots and decoration.

I created this 40x40 community lot making it fit with the rest of the down town buildings. Because of the paintings inside the restaurant, the game recognizes it as if it was an art gallery. But of course you can visit the lot to practice some creative skills, play some chess or pay an expensive “eat all you can” lunch for $ 250 every time you serve yourself.

I used as much as possible content from the base game and the cc that I used can be easily replaced by some content from the base game, e.g. fences and double door.

Unfurnished: $ 113.180
Furnished: $ 240.135

A short description

Lower/Main Floor
Terrace and Self service restaurant
1st Floor
restrooms & bar
2d Floor
Study & relax room (with chess tables)
3rd Floor
Caballetes and chess tables

If you want these items to appear in your game, you will need to purchase them at The Sims 3 Online Store.

Window Insulator/Aislante
Window/Insulator Bay Mirador Window

Victorian Windows Ventana Omnisciente/ Window of all knowing

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 must admit it`s great. You have done a great job creating something similar to the Maxis buildings.

This is what we *should* have had instead of rabbit holes. I wish EAxis had given us the tools for functioning restaurants, nightclubs, spas, etc. with the base game. And by "functioning" I mean being able to see your sims in action, not just as a progression bar...

Thanks nivaso for working hard to give us the next best thing!

Thank you all for taking your time leaving a comment. I think the base game has these rabbit holes making the game run faster. - You have 20 sims disappearing in one rabbit hole, so less data needs to be processed.- Anyway, I'm not an expert on this field, so who knows.

I thought the exact same thing! This is definitely a work of art. My towns usually look odd with half of the lots being modern.
