I Wish We Still Had a German Beer Hall in Our Basement
Thanks to former Edible World Tour Guide Art Etchells, we learned a little something about the home of First Person Arts, 1 S. Broad. Before it was the PNB Building, it was the Betz Building and housed in the basement was a German beer hall, Soula’s Raths Keller. It sounds like it was a pretty cool place back in 1910…
Art unearthed this bit of Philadelphia history from Rand, McNally & Co.’s Handy Guide to Philadelphia and Environs. I can only imagine what other cool stories that book has to share.
