The Rathskeller

Travel below Old City Hall, and you will find Duluth’s speakeasy-inspired whiskey and cocktail bar…
The Rathskeller.

Located in a historic holding cell, The Rath features fine whiskey, a relaxing, casual atmosphere, and 13 taps of the best variety of beers in the country.

Also, don’t be spooked, but we are pretty sure it’s haunted.

Featured Whiskey of the Month : Talisker

Talisker is the oldest Single Malt Scotch Whiskey made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.
Peated, maritime and forthright
Like the view of the sea from our distillery doors, this whiskey is
complex, and takes a while for your palate to appreciate some of the more salty, peaty notes.
Whisky for the adventurer, those happiest close to nature
