The Tavern is like a HouseResidence in that it houses citizens, however, the Tavern houses four instead of one and can’t be upgraded to house more.

Every so often, visitors will come to the Tavern. You can recruit these visitors (with items) to live and work in your colony. Don’t attack them, they’ll fight back! Upgrading the Tavern will garner more and better visitors.

Note: The Tavern can only be upgraded to level 3, not level 5. You can also only have 1 Tavern per colony.
