Become A Member of The Rathskeller Club

The Rathskeller Club is a community, library, museum, and showcase for experiential art. We host salons, lectures, and socials, as well as many immersive shows and events.

Our members are primarily creators, but we do have among us the curious and inquisitive. Our doors are open to anyone who will help us pioneer and elevate the experiential arts.

Our clubhouse serves two primary purposes: the first is to act as an experiential museum where the curious visitor will be given the opportunity to discover embodied experiences that showcase the art. Our hope is to instill a deep sense of awe, an insatiable thirst for wonder, and an undeniable state of raw inspiration.

Secondly, we are a third place for designers, builders, and dreamers. Come after work for a cup of tea and a conversation with fellow explorers of this frontier art form. Rent the space for a special event, an experiment in real world design, or as a unique meeting space for your clients and collaborators.

Membership benefits include:

  • Invites to all Members Only events such as Salons and School of Shenanigans.
  • Access to the club during Open Hours and other off hours with staff member present.
