During 32 hours distributed over one-, two-, or three-week sessions, aspiring drink-smiths learn the recipes for classic cocktails and pouring techniques. Students walk away with the certification and skills required to be a bartender.
The four-hour mixology class inundates students with cocktail-crafting basics, ideal for people who aren’t looking for a certification, but still want to add a little showmanship to dinner parties or parole hearings.
ABC Bartending School
The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
