Mellow Marvin's is a cozy sports bar built out of a refurbished Victorian-esque townhouse. The bottom floor was completely gutted and turned into a bar, and the "attic" of the house was turned into a more private nook.

When I built Mellow Marvin's, I kind of envisioned the bar from the TV show Cheers as my inspiration. The hangout features a semi-wraparound bar as the main focus, along with a large flat-screen TV to watch the game on (it is a sports bar, right?).

You will need Late Night for this lot to function properly!

No CC...sorta...

The only CC required for this lot is made by me. I didn't like the choices for sports decor so I made some of my own. To play up the sports motif, I created several "victory" newspaper headlines, as well as framed photos of sports legends. While all the writing is in Simlish, the images are real photos found on google that have been edited in photoshop to make them look less....real. All of the CC is included in the mellowmarvins-CC.rar.

Lot Size: 10x10
Lot Price: 38,109

Custom Content by Me:
- Victory! Framed Newspapers
- The Legends
- Daily Specials Chalkboard

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.

Go right ahead a do whatever you want :D

I suggest you swap the TV position with the paintings under it so the sims can actually see the TV while sitting at the bar :p

Wow, nice lot for a 10x10 space. It fits right into Sunset Valley without being too out of place in design! Nice job!
