Living a balanced life is also important in simulators. Although most of the dwarven stronghold is spent working, providing your dwarves with a respite where they can socialize, relax, and drink is important to ensure their continued survival. This is how you can build your own tavern for your dwarven team.
We are building a tavern in the dwarven fortress
Before you can build the tavern itself, you need to dig a room large enough to hold a supply, chairs and tables, and a chest, and enough floor space for people to move around comfortably. While you’re excavating this room, you should also consider excavating a smaller room next to the larger tavern that can double as a dormitory where those who’ve had a bit too much to drink can sleep through the effects.
After excavating the rooms you should flatten them to improve their quality before placing two doors to connect the dormitory to the tavern and the tavern to the rest of your stronghold. Once this is complete you can start setting up your tavern.

Establishment of the tavern
Both the tavern and the dormitory set up have special requirements. For the dormitory, build four to six beds and place them in the room. Don’t worry about adding too much to a dorm as they don’t require as much as bedrooms. For the tavern, you need at least 10 tables with a matching chair, as well as a chest to start. You should fill the chest with stone jars so the dwarves have a tool to drink from. Eventually you’ll want to stock up on food to add to the tavern.
Once your tavern and dorms are set up to your satisfaction, it’s time to set up the tavern as a gathering area. Before selecting, click on the zone icon on the screen meeting point and highlighting the tavern. This will give you a list of meeting area zone details. Click on the shield with the plus sign and select it new inn/tavern to brand your new space a tavern and give it a great name to celebrate.
