Definition: The cellar of a town hall, usually used as a pub. (Used primarily in Germany.)
Completely Deutsch! This lyrical German term, if it were anthropomorphized, would probably have an accent as thick as bratwurst.
Why this word?
Other than sounding like the name of a 40s-era comic book villain, or a word from something Edward Lear or Lewis Carroll would come up with, rathskeller is fun to say!
How would you use rathskeller in a sentence?
Example: “We somehow wound up in the rathskeller of a building where a bunch of friendly Germans were urging us to join in singing songs with them and drink from their steamboat-sized barrels of lager. Joey was so overjoyed and taken with the excitement of the turn of events that he vowed to never leave.”
