Good bartenders always have advice for their customers' problems, which is why it's best not to bartend in a particle-physics lab or prison. Hone your listening ear with today's Groupon to ABC Bartending School, valid at its three locations in Chicago, Mount Prospect and Frankfort. Choose between the following options:

  • For $69, you get a four-hour mixology class (a $150 value).
  • For $199, you get 40 hours of training to become a certified bartender (a $695 value).

Learn how to mix, stir, and shake under the tutelage of experienced instructors. During the four-hour mixology course, you'll learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations. Or, over the course of 40 knowledge-soaked hours (spread over a one-, two-, or three-week schedule), bartenders-to-be will receive extensive instruction and hands-on practice. All ABC grads enjoy a lifetime of free refresher courses, job-placement assistance, and access to a Cheers dimension that currently, due to spatial fluctuations, contains only Cliff Clavin.

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.
