About The Rathskeller

     The Rathskeller as friends near and far have come to know and love it, was opened 13 years ago in historic downtown Franklin, NC by George Hasara and Heidi Hunter.  Over the years, it has become cemented as the go-to place in Franklin for relaxing, conversing with friends, and sipping on a craft beer, glass of wine, tea, espresso beverage, Italian soda, or homemade milkshake, or enjoying one of the delicious baked treats.  It's relaxed home-away-from-home atmosphere has served as an oasis from the world for over a decade.

    Recently, George and Heidi decided that it was time to pass on the torch of ownership of The Rathskeller to long-time friends and regulars of the shop, Brandon and Kate McMahan, Adam Kimsey, and Natasha Sebring. The new owners have strived to preserve all of the things about The Rathskeller that so many people have come to know and love over the years, while bringing in some new and exciting ideas of their own. 

    Whether you're a local, a part-time resident, or you're just passing through, when you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere in which to unwind for a while, come on by The Rathskeller.  There's a seat for you at the bar.
