The word “Ratskeller” in German means “council’s cellar” (Rathaus is the German word for City Hall). We chose this name at Myrtle’s Punch House for our cellar because it’s a place for the community to come together and enjoy each other’s company as well! Our Ratskeller was originally a storage room for the shops and apartments above. The wood tongue and groove ceiling is original to the space–as are the beautiful field stone foundation walls and arches which were used to store coal piles for heating the building back in the 1880s!
Today, the Ratskeller plays host to our curated line up of live music, and our wine cellar. The space is perfect for hosting group events, and the coal bins are a cozy place to have an intimate conversation with friends. Come discover this fantastic space for yourself, and let us host your group event or party.
