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. We’re so pleased that you all loved the temporary bar on the IOE concourse, but we promise, the new bar will be even better. 

The Institute Bar will open for you on Friday 11 January at 12:00, we cannot wait for you to see it. 

There’s a lot of things to be excited about including pool tables, comfy sofa’s, a professional chef to prepare all your meals and great drink deals. And there will be a HUGE terrace outside. It’ll be the perfect place to catch some rays in the summer with a drink in hand, and you can do the same in the winter (maybe not the rays) but we will be having heaters outside so you can still enjoy our outside space. 

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

Have a look at what it will look like below, or come pop by! 


For the first weeks our drink offers will stay the same…

Term-time opening hours:

Monday to Wednesday: 12:00 - 23:00

Thursday to Friday: 12:00 - midnight

Saturday and Sunday: CLOSED
