A BEER HALL & PRIVATE EVENT SPACE
The Rathskeller is the German term for ‘council’s cellar,’ a room in the basement of a civil building. Formerly the mansion's basement housed the jail cell for Morristown. Now, the Rathskeller serves as an event space for weddings, corporate events, and celebrations of all kinds. On Friday and Saturday nights the Rathskeller transforms into a Beer Hall. The menu offerings are similar to that of the Oyster and Vail Bars, and there is a sizable beer list to satisfy brewhounds of all tastes. Friday nights feature a rotating list of fantastic live musical acts. Larger groups of 9-14 can also reserve tables for JHBK's Large Format Menu, a family-style feast drawn from The Oyster Bar menu. The basement is accessible through the parking garage underneath the mansion, using the stairs next to the Vail Bar, or by taking the elevator from the main or second floor.
