Ratskeller is a German word meaning a tavern below street level specializing in serving beer.  In Germany, a Ratskeller is a restaurant or tavern in the basement of a city hall.

The German Society's Ratskeller is a lower-level, authentic, German old-world-style bar and dining room.  It offers an ambience perfect for wine and beer tastings or smaller gatherings.  The room also contains a large-screen television with 24-hour German satellite TV, and a newly-refurbished industrial kitchen.


The Ratskeller is 30' x 43' and seats 50-100 people (60 at small tables and up to 100 using large tables and folding chairs).  It also has a 26' wet bar with 8 stools and refrigeration units.  The room has a direct entrance from the parking lot.
