After four months of restoration, a bar inside the Memorial Union will reopen Monday.
Der Stiftskeller, originally opened in 1962, has had its murals restored, pool tables moved in and the serving bar reborn out of a Terrace tree, those managing the the University of Wisconsin-Madison project said Wednesday at a sneak preview of the restaurant.
In addition to its interior upgrades, the Stiftskeller will add a second window serving the Terrace.
Murals first painted in 1978 were restored, recreated, or in the case of the "Battle of Beer and Wine" painting, relocated from the west wall to the south wall, the UW-Madison said.
The renovations are part of phase one of the university's Memorial Union Reinvestment project, which kicked off in the summer of 2012.
Der Stiftskeller shares the bar with neighbor pub Der Rathskeller.
