Der Rathskeller

Open Now Thursday: 8am to 10pm

Memorial Union, 800 Langdon St. | (608) 262-7324

  • Rathskeller Slider Image

Der Rathskeller is a favorite gathering place for students, staff, and community members. With a German beer hall feel, this Wisconsin Union icon hosts music sponsored by the Wisconsin Union Directorate's Music Committee, game watches for the Badgers, Packers, and Brewers, and provides a place to socialize.

What goes best with socializing and merriment? Food and beverages. You’ll find a bright new servery and a different layout at the counter, but the burger, fries and Rath sauce are the same. Sandwiches and wraps return, with a focus on shareable appetizers, like a giant Bavarian pretzel. The best part about dining in der Rath? You don’t have to wait for lunch because breakfast has returned!
