For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Pub.
Having at least one pub in operation is a requirement for a good Mardi Gras celebration or a convincing spring break vacation deal. When enacting the Secret Police edict, it is ideal to convert a pub into the Secret Police building, as pubs are the least expensive option for conversion. Enacting Prohibition will shut down all pubs on the island.
- No Dress Code: All Tropicans, regardless of class, are free to use the pubs, giving a standard level of quality and attracting spring break tourists.
- Upscale Dress Code: Only Tropicans in jobs that require High School or College educations are permitted to use the pub, improving the service quality by +20% and attracting wealthy tourists.
