Chautauqua Institution

Chautauqua Institution

Chautauqua Institution is a not-for-profit global convener of dialogue on the most significant issues of the day through engagement across four pillars of the arts, education, religion, and recreation. The Chautauqua community is located on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York State and comes alive each summer with a unique mix of visual and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship/programs, and recreational activities. The Institution has just recently passed a strategic plan (150 Forward) that endeavors to expand its reach to year-round programming and to harness its brand for continuous impact. A new Washington, DC, office has opened to allow the Institution to play an ongoing role in the cultural conversations of the nation.

In addition to the Heirloom Restaurant and Lobby Lounge, other Chautauqua Hotel Company food and beverage operations include:

• The President’s Cottage, where private programs and events with culinary service are held for business purposes that advance the mission of Chautauqua Institution.
• The Brick Walk Café, a centrally located casual restaurant for quick hot meals and grab-and-go items, features an Ice Cream parlor and indoor/outdoor seating.
• The Gazebo, located adjacent to the Brick Walk Café, serves limited takeaway food items and is a Starbucks “We Brew” vendor.
• Afterword’s Café is a centrally located coffee shop serving breakfast and lunch, featuring soups, sandwiches, baked goods, and other specialties.
• Plaza Market is a convenience store with a variety of sundries and specialty products.
• The Gallery Café, located on the porch of Fowler-Kellogg Gallery, serves fresh hot and cold lunch and snack items and offers porch seating for patrons and passers-by.
• 3 Taps & The A-Truck is Chautauqua’s only lakeside food and beverage venue, featuring indoor and outdoor seating, fire pits, and a unique food and beverage menu appealing to multiple generations. The A Truck is a mobile food truck and can be leveraged off-site.
• The Double Eagle Restaurant Patio on the Green at Chautauqua Golf Club is one of the only food and beverage facilities at Chautauqua that has the potential to operate year-round. During golf season, it serves as the “19th hole” and also operates a Club Car. The facility is appointed to accommodate group programs and events and post-round food and libations alike.
• Bellinger Hall Cafeteria is a dormitory dining hall serving some 300 summer students enrolled in Chautauqua’s Schools of Performing & Visual Arts. The facility can also operate year-round for pre-scheduled programs and events, and the kitchen often serves as the staging point for late fall, winter, and early spring food service requests. The Hotel staff also manages the dormitory space of Bellinger Hall to meet accommodations demand during the Summer Assembly (space providing) and year-round.
• Festival Food and Movie Event Concessions are provided by the Food and Beverage team as requested during the Summer Assembly and year-round, depending on Institution programming and events.
