The Institute Bar is back!

The time has come and our new bar on level 4 of the Institute of Education building is ready for you. The new space is bigger, lighter and has more than twice as much outdoor seating as before. It’s great in the daytime with lots of comfortable seating, and brilliant in the evenings with all your favourites behind the bar. 

There’s a lot of things to be excited about including pool tables, comfy sofa’s and a great selection of drinks. A big bonus is the HUGE terrace outside for you to enjoy when the days get warmer.

Like the bar space before, the Institute Bar is still the most chilled of our bars with great drink deals and live Jazz sessions every Monday at 20:00 (coming soon) and a pub quiz every Wednesday from 19:00.

Term-time opening hours:

Monday to Wednesday: 12:00 - 23:00

Thursday to Friday: 12:00 - midnight

Saturday and Sunday: CLOSED


The Institute Bar, 20 Bedford Way - Level 4, WC1H 0XG
