Dwarf Fortress How to Make a Tavern – Build the rooms, decorate them and use the necessary furniture, and set up the zones accordingly
Dwarves spend their days working, but you also have to take care of their free time, and one of the best things you can build for them to hang out in is a tavern.
Dwarf Fortress How to Make a Tavern – The Rooms
Your tavern should have a large space for its main room, but it should also connect to another smaller room that will serve as a dormitory.
Tavern – Main Room
Digging out a space for a bar to be built is the first phase in the construction process. It is vital that the tavern be large enough to fit a stockpile, several tables and chairs, and a chest, while also providing some vacant space so that the dwarves can congregate. However, there is no exact size requirement for this area. To be clear, a 15×10 space should be more than enough to set up a bar.
Tavern – Dormitory
Additionally, it is advised that players dig out a smaller space adjacent to their inn. In this room, which will serve as a dormitory, guests will be able to sleep. a 6×4 room should be enough
We recommend you to connect both rooms (Tavern & dormitory) by means of a door, and of course connect the tavern to the rest of the base by means of a door. We also recommend that you smooth them to improve their quality. By selecting both of the rooms and clicking on the gray square at the bottom of the screen, you may smooth the rooms
Dwarf Fortress How to Make a Tavern – Decorating the Tavern
Of course you can give free rein to your imagination. But for it to be functional, and based on the measurements that we have recommended, you will need at least 6 beds for the bedroom, 10 tables and 10 chairs for the main room, and a chest. You can craft all these pieces of furniture at the Carpeter’s Workshop
And here are some tips to make your taverna work perfectly:
- Chests: Vessels will automatically be added to the chest, but we recommend putting a Craftdwarfs’ Workshop and use it to create rock mugs
- Stockpile: Create a stockpile (stockpiles icon at the bottom of the screen) and select type = food, then customize the type of food to your choice
- Setting Zones:
- Tavern: Click the zone icon (bottom of the screen), click meeting area, highlight the tavern, shield with the plus sign and choose new inn or tavern.
- Dormitory: Click the zone icon (bottom of the screen), click dormitory, highlight the dormitory, shield with the plus sign and click accept
