The Troy German Hall Association, founded in 1890, is an association of individual ethnic societies, each having its roots in Old Germany, carried to this country by and with its individual members and ancestors.
The Hall is located in the Lansingburgh section of Troy, New York. The facilities are housed in a two level building. The main level consists of a ballroom with hardwood flooring throughout. The lower, "Rathskeller", level has a tavern/lounge area, a restaurant section, and a full service kitchen.
The Ratskeller restaurant, celebrating 34 years, is open to the public for Friday Night Dinners from 5-8:30PM. Meals include a soup & salad bar, fresh bread, coffee, and desert with a variety of German and American entrees. All dinners are under $17.00, with a children's menu available for $5.95.
