Their impressive whiskey and tequila collection might flummox you, but their friendly staff will get it right for you. They also have a fine selection of beer. Enjoy DJ nights and live music ranging various musical genres.
Down under Mass Ave, there's a basement banquet hall known as Rathskeller. The building is an archaic-looking structure befitting such an establishment, and it is adorned with a wealth of old-country kitsch. The kitchen serves a filling menu of Bavarian specialties, and the bar pours stein after stein of full-bodied German lager. There's live music occasionally, and a party atmosphere always. The happy hour crowd can be found here imbibing cocktails and beer, and enjoying bar snacks. The gorgeous biergarten out back plays host to banquets and events, and is the perfect place to enjoy a beer and a sausage on a warm summer day.

Rick's offers one of the best seafood dishes in the Midwest with their fresh ocean fish and innovative cuisine. Plus, there is a live jazz band to entertain you while you enjoy your delectable seafood feast.
