About Us

We believe that bartending is best learned in a hands-on training environment. Ten percent of each class consists of instructor-led lectures which are intensely informational.

Ninety percent of each class consists of working behind a fully stocked bar station mixing, blending, shaking and learning the very latest cocktail and shooter recipes.

Our classroom atmosphere is relaxed, warm and friendly. Our instructors care about you and are serious about your success!

Each class is limited in size, guaranteeing that your instructors will be able to provide you with individualized instruction.
