I made over the Lulu Lounge way back when for a scene in my story, and finished it up.  I'd love to share it now.

ETA: I'm entering this for Dare 32 on [livejournal.com profile] maxis_taste :)    



I took some hints from the asian style columns on the facade of the original lot and made something inspired by garish fake Chinese theatres and restaurants (like Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood).  

I did add a second floor for a billiards lounge, but otherwise I didn't change much of the layout. There is no custom content in the lot, but all EPs and SPs have been used to build it.

Please let me know if there are any issues installing this lot.  Feel free to do whatever you wish with it, except re-upload to paysites or otherwise without my express permission. Credit would be lovely.  
Built with all the Expansion and Stuff Packs and fully play tested.  No custom content was used to build the lot. No super hug bug detected in my game. 
I recommend installing with Clean-Installer.

It looks awesome. You've given it personality and taken away that bland/generic feel. Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you! I've always liked this club, I think it might have been one of the first clubs I'd regularly bring my sims to. :)

Very nice! Incredible improvement. Like reggikko said, it has personality now, it stands out and isn't just yet another grey building.

Thank you so much. I always thought a club called the "Lulu Lounge" had to have a little more flair. Of course, I went over the top with it but that was part of the fun. ^_^

It really was. I had originally just wanted to change the facade and a lounge area for my scene, but decided To keep finishing it. :) Thank you!

It looks much, much better. :)

Oh wow. Now that lot looks modern and flashy, instead of sort of like a formerly buzzing nightclub past its heyday that's gone manky and tired. I might just nab this for my Uni campus, thanks. :)

Oh wow, this looks great! I like how you used a lot of sort of weird wallpapers, but really made them work for this.

The Lulu Lounge is absolutely lovely. It has actually character now, instead of it being another Maxis community box. I like it a lot! :)
