The Muddy Charles Pub has been present on the MIT campus since 1968, where it has welcomed everyone from Nobel Laureates to graduate students, played host to entrepreneurs and their start-ups, and enjoyed global exposure. Most of the patrons are MIT graduate students and prices are kept affordable for them.

Reminder: the Pub is only open to MIT affiliates. This includes friends, family, etc. of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Be sure to bring a MIT ID and a government-issued ID (21+ only).
