The Tavern is where Sims go to drink. The Bard lives in the upper room of the tavern, where a desk and archive allow them to write plays and poems. Downstairs are several tables for Sims to sit at to eat and drink and a stage for the bard, actors, and actresses to perform on.
Behind the bar of the tavern are a couple of casks to brew drinks in. Sims can brew drinks for free in the tavern, but taking or serving a drink costs seven simoles.
Placing a Tavern in your kingdom increases the capacity for Well-Being by 1, Culture by 2, and Knowledge by 1.
