The Rathskeller

“The Rathskeller bar — the only surviving, Rookwood-Pottery room in the world” a subterranean grotto ballroom called the Rathskeller Room. It’s the only surviving room in the world completely encrusted in Rookwood pottery, from top to bottom, and has a powerfully historic and some say ghostly vibe.

Strange designs and symbols fill every inch of the room’s ornate decor, a mixture of images from zodiacal, alchemical, Masonic, heraldic, and various other symbologies including the famous Rookwood pelicans “for good luck.”
