Year Closed:  March 1997, 3003 Paradise Rd

 

Style:  Bavarian, of course! 

 

The Rathskeller:  Located downstairs from the main 250-seat dining room, The Rathskeller was the literal "beer hall or restaurant in the basement" where traditional Bavarian-style singing and stein-raising took place.  

 

Reason for closure:  Majority shareholder Lou Wiener passed away and the estate decided to close rather than invest in renovations.

 

What's there now:  As the song goes, they paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
