The O2 Institute (originally known as the Digbeth Institute) is a music venue located in Birmingham, England. The venue opened in 1908 as a mission of Carrs Lane Congregational Church. It has also served as an event centre, civic building and nightclub.
It has three main rooms: the 2000-capacity main auditorium called "The Institute" which has a seated upper balcony, the downstairs room which holds up to 600 people called "O2 Institute2" (formerly "The Library") and the 250-capacity upstairs room "O2 Institute3" (formerly "The Temple").
The venue also houses "Un-Plug", an intimate club with a capacity of 400, located in the building's cellar. The space formerly operated as the "Midland Jazz Club", "Jug 'O Punch Folk Club", Dance Factory and "Barfly".
