Olde Sunny Pub
The Birthmark of Metropolis
In the middle of the downtown district of bustling city of Sungear, despite the surrounded skyscrapers, there is a humble place that looks completely distinct.
This is the Olde Sunny Pub, the leisure place full of people relaxing with drinks, foods, chats, and games afterwork. Many would recognize it as one of the country pub that can be found commonly in the rural area.
The pub is a single medieval public house, 2 stories high, constructed with timber frames. The first floor infilled with bricks painted cream, and the other one with wattle and daub. It also has a basement and a long brick chimney.
Unlike many modern pub, the building is the same one when it was constructed, holding much of its value and architectural design choice at that time. The only exception are the thatch roof that was replaced with brick tiles as well as new windows, doors, room extensions, and a parking lot.
Historical plaques can also be seen at the particular point such events occurred, telling the long history of the pub's legacy.
The Good Old Bar
Entering the pub is the famous reception room, the mix of cream-painted and bare brick walls like the rest of the interior. A long wooden check-in counter is stretching across the room, with line of wooden stools and the receptionist; In other words, the bartender.
Although the long wooden bar looks nice and polished, it's by the fact the same bar since the opening - mostly. Over the course of restorations to keep it look fresh and clean, some parts of the original woods was removed, though some of them still exist. The most obvious part is nothing but a fine, polished hardwood countertop - around 500 years old.
Dining with Daily Talent(s)
The main hall, decorated in the same manner as the bar, has a plenty set of tables and chairs placed beside the window and the center, with a dartboard and lots of giant screens of flat TV. It's for people who come in group or prefer eating. The hall connect to the recreation room, containing a billiard table, and the restroom.
Furthermore, around one corner lies a performance stage. Many musicians and entertainers used to perform at this revenue, which isn't hard to get a gig here if you contact Martin. It also can be seen from the outside so whenever there is a celebrity that night, the front will be crowded.
We were a group of youth boys unfamiliar with everything. Every new place we played here in Sungear we were so nervous. But this pub - it was the opposite. It was so relaxing. It felt like home.
A Humble Origin
The city of Sungear as we know it today was once only a small coastal village, far far away from political mess which was also a good trade node. Self-sufficient by the newly built harbor and caravans, the village lied the house of a famous merchant.
Everytime after sailing across the ocean, they usually rested here for a month to repair fleets, wrote journals, and of course gathered friends. The basement that was supposed to be the warehouse but instead being used as a brewery to serve home-brewed beers to them visitors.
The more time passed the weaken they were - it was inevitable. The old merchant decided to rest here permanently, and what they wanted to do was converting it into the public house. The new set of tables and chairs, as well as the popular wooden bar and stools from the best carpenters, were placed alongside their existing furnitures. The second floor was converted into living quarters for travellers.
When everything was ready, the pub was finally opened in an early summer, marking the birth of the lovely meeting place with its first name: Sunny Pub.
The pub may be inspired from the hot summer and golden sunshine, but our city's name was surely came from this pub!
50 Years Old
The city was slowly thriving, and so the foreigner interesting in it. The local group led by another wealthy man tried to break away from those and remain independent. Along with other towns' mayors, they used this pub to discuss the plot and common law which later to be applied by the rest of the land. Once it completed, they gathered all the people to give them speech of motivations.
The plot succeeded, their authority had been recognized, and the whole community had celebrated, and what's the better place other than this beloved public house? Nevertheless, the overcrowding ruined some furniture.
They continued to use this pub for political and diplomatic meeting until the proper governmental building was functional, leaving with the historical mark for the pub to advertise.
200 Years Old
As if the legacy must continue, Samul Hecter, the popular revolutionist who turned the republic into the short-term monarchy as it seem to fit his desire, also used this place to write a statement, gather people for his speech, and start the riot, which ultimately ended in accomplishment.
Sadly though, his regime was brutal like his royalists never thought of, and so hypocrite he rather wanted his child to succeed the position. As a result, the war broke out and he was then overthrown and sentenced to be imprisoned on , therefore restoring the republic. With an absolute loss, the last thing he request before he step out of the city forever was to eat the last meal at the Sunny Pub.
It was a good exchange after all, for another plaque to be installed.

As the land value increase over time, the expansion of an existed structure is unavoidable. With the old-fashion architecture as a selling point, all extensions being built outside the main structure must keep their look to make the overall feel consistent.
The renovation include infrastructure. The pipeline and electric system for example had been added centuries ago, working their best; The fire extinguishing system fifty years later, though nothing too hot ever happened.
Recently, what has been added is a wireless hotspot - and it's free.

A Dish by the MomentRed Beef Curry, the oldest, most popular dish the pub could provide. A spoonful that would make the moment in the pub to be loved or remembered, in one way or another. For Cheryl West though, it was her first date. The first time she came here and tried this glorious dish, the taste of an everlasting love with . Today, the moment cycled once again - only this time, she was alone. Weeping, sinking in the sea of sorrow, it was well known to anyone's recent memory; Many souls were reclaimed by the rubble of the once-glorious Candella Tower, where Dewitt joined them undeserved. Even if she tried to forget or had forgotten, the heartful memory stuffed inside a burning sensation of a spicy-sweeten chunks of beef stewed in coconut milk, would carry on.
