Dating back to 1422, the Town Hall Pharmacy is the oldest pharmacy in Europe that has continuously been in business in the same spot. Aside from providing town citizens with relief from their health woes, the pharmacy was also a place of joy and merriment. A multitude of noble clients had the habit of gathering in the building to make plans and drink claret, sometimes to excess. In 1467, the pharmacist was forced to ask permission to employ an extra apprentice specifically to serve wine to these revelers.
