We're An Institution

Institution is Warrington’s premier cocktail bar. Come in and relax with some of the best cocktails you’ll find in the North West. We also have an exceptional food menu, available all day every day. Why not join us for Brunch or Afternoon Tea? Our staff are artisans and will make sure you’re well taken care of. Whether you’ve booked an Exclusive Booth or whether you’ve walked in for the first time, everyone is a part of the Institution.


You’ve been to see us, you’ve seen our staff, you were in awe, why wouldn’t you have been, we’ve seen them too. So what’s next, you’re thinking ‘man I wish I could make an old fashioned like this at home’… Why can’t you? Get taught to make the cocktails you want, from the people who made you want it in the first place. Book onto our Masterclasses.
