The Ratskeller in the New Town Hall beckons guests.

The Ratskeller ("City Council Cellar") of the city of Leipzig was opened in October 1904, and is considered one of the most traditional restaurants in the entire city. It is located in the New Town Hall, which was completed a year later. The seven different guest rooms offer a rustic and cosy ambience featuring a menu of properly braised Saxon specialities and home-brewed Lotteraner cellar beers from the Ratskeller Braumanufaktur brewery. As a result of numerous renovations, the vaulted cellar now has 700 seats, spread over the large cellar, the wine restaurant, the Alte Wache, the "Lene Voigt" coffee chamber, the Admiral Bromme Salon, the RatskellerClub and the Gewandhaussaal. The Ratskeller provides the perfect setting for a leisurely dinner for two, for small groups, for a larger social gathering, or for a planned family or theme party. Business events can also be held on the premises.

Seats: 700 indoor, 150 outdoor
