Baker Institute Update: Step into Club Berlin
In this edition
Step into Club Berlin

For one night only — November 9 — the Baker Institute will host Club Berlin, an unforgettable party for young professionals that celebrates the institute's 20th anniversary and recognizes honorary chair James A. Baker, III’s role in the fall of the Berlin Wall.  
Join your friends on the dance floor while New York-based DJ KISS, known for keeping the crowd going, works the turntables. Houston’s top chefs will create a delicious caviar bar, a decadent dessert bar and a charcuterie bar. Grey Goose will provide a martini bar and serve signature Baker Wall Breaker cocktails while Côté OR oversees a champagne bar.

Honorary chairs Jenna Bush Hager and Henry Hager will be in attendance along with co-chairs Kristen and Lee Nix, Cody Sutton and Molly Reese Ward. "I am incredibly excited to be a part of Club Berlin," says Kristen. "The combination of a world-class DJ, unique digital art, award-winning menu and punk chic attire truly make it stand out in the Houston social scene."

As a special thank you, all current Associate Roundtable members will receive two complimentary tickets to Club Berlin. But anyone can join the fun for a $100 ticket you can purchase here. For more details, visit our website or contact Jessalyn Giacona at 713.348.5624 or email
