Choose Between Two Options

  • $75 for a 4-hour mixology course (a $150 value)
  • $195 for a 32-hour bartender-certification course (a $595 value)<p>

Under the tutelage of experienced mixology instructors in a fully operational bar setting, students learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations with a 4-hour primer. Alternatively, serious bartenders-to-be can partake in 32 knowledge-soaked hours of extensive training and hands-on practice regarding all aspects of tending bar, from setup and maintenance to cutting off customers and taking the jukebox off shuffle. Speed techniques and cash-handling procedures help newbies meet the demands of a fast-paced job, and profit pouring also allows them to rake in tips quicker. The in-depth course also covers wine distinctness, draft pouring, keg tapping and access to a Cheers dimension that currently, due to spatial fluctuations, contains only Cliff Clavin. Students can complete their training over the course of one, two, or three weeks, depending on scheduling needs.

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.
