Bartending Success Stories:

I enjoyed my experience here. I’ve already been telling everyone I know to take this course. I felt the atmosphere was very comfortable and easy to learn in. I never felt nervous to ask questions or make mistakes. I feel confident to work in a bar after only two weeks. I will definitely recommend this school!

I have really enjoyed my 2 weeks here. I had nothing but fun learning key bartending tools I will carry with me for the rest of my bartending career. Fun atmosphere and the bar simulation is very accurate. Informative textbook and up to date. I feel I have real experience now that will make me comfortable working in any bar environment. I like how we are able to come back and refresh our memory and skills. Ian is the man! Great class, thanks!
Cliff C.
It was really casual and relaxed, which reflects the industry. There were plenty of good, hands-on experience. The energy was great, not intimidating, and friendly. So much to learn still. I loved it here. I came in with no knowledge about the industry and now I’m leaving with confidence and experience. Great that you allow drop-ins after. I had fun and learned a lot. Thanks!
