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.  

Upcoming Events

The return of the CB Pumpkin Beer Fest! 

We‚Äč're bringing pumpkin back! Mark your calendars for the weekend of October 3rd and 4th.  Our much loved pumpkin beer festival will return, structured for comfort and safety for all. This is a ticketed event.  There are no day of event sales, either day.  Tickets are sold in groups of 4 to 6 and cover a 2 hour time block for a table. Consecutive time blocks may be purchased.  Each ticket may be redeemed for a pumpkin beer or cider.  Per state and local guidelines, food must be purchased to consume alcohol.  We will post a pumpkin inspired menu soon!  Tickets are available at institutebar.ticketleap.com and we expect this event to sell out.  See you in October!
