Welcome to The Institute
Founded in 2008, The Institute Bar quickly became a home away from home for the anti-social socialites of the city. Known for quirky events including the largest pumpkin beer festival in the area, The Institute grew a base of loyal and loving guests. Times change and during the summer of 2017 the owners were struck with an idea to expand and re-energize the business. The original Institute closed in December of 2018 in order to move in to a new space only one block away in a building the owners were sure would never become anything. Newly incarnated, The Institute Craft Bar and Kitchen pays homage to the original location while taking on a more refined energy including a chef-inspired menu, a team of highly experienced bar tenders, and a crafted design that incorporates elements of the building it now resides in.
Serving up $4 bourbon shots, $7 Old Fashion's, $8 Whiskey Sours (real whiskey sours, folks) and $9 Bourbon Smash cocktails.
Serving up a selection of Margaritas, Tequila Sours, and Mezcal cocktails from a rotating list of small batch of your favorite agave spirits!
