Our Cincinnati Location

We are a state-licensed bartending school that has been training Cincinnati's best bartenders since 1978.

In the summer of 2009, we moved to our new location at 4141 Hamilton Ave. Formerly the Provident Loan Company building, and since one of Northside's most prominent commercial establishments, the Cincinnati Bartending School now has a new home!

The school was previously located on Blue Rock Street from 1986 until 2009, and previously on Galbraith Road since 1978. We have earned our 30+ year reputation for excellence through hard work and a commitment to training and placing quality bartenders in the tri-state area.

About Us

Over the years, we have earned a reputation as the main supplier of professionally-trained bartenders for the tri-state area. We have supplied graduates for most all of the major names and events in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southern Indians.

Our classroom is setup like an actual bar and our students spend 75% of their time behind on of our fully-equipped bars, making drinks and practicing their trade under the supervision of one of our instructors.

By the time the graduate leaves our school, they are ready to step behind any bar in the greater Cincinnati area and tend bar confidently!

A Bartending Career

Bartending offers an environment that allows people to "be themselves!" Imagine being able to wake up every morning WANTING to go to work! Bartending offers the fun, flexibility, and the MONEY that most people are missing from their "regular jobs." Bartending can be full-time, part-time, or seasonal. Work days, nights, weekends, or any combination of shifts. Add extra money into your pocket, or change careers completely! No matter how the economy is doing, bartending stays constant (and so does the money!).

  • Make $100 to $300 a night.
  • Work in a fun environment.
  • Job stability in a recession-proof industry? We've got you covered.
  • Make a little extra cash, part-time? Why not? Bartending is flexible.
  • Am I too old? Absolutely not. Bartenders come in all sizes, shapes, and ages.
  • But I've never worked in a bar before. How will I find a job? We help over 90% of our graduates get great bartending jobs, full or part time, through our job placement assistance.
  • Sleep until noon? Why not?
  • Escape my dead end job in only two weeks? Oh, absolutely. Don't believe us? Call or email us right away, and we'll show you how.
