BartenderOne

Like arriving at school naked, going to school in a bustling bar is something that usually only happens in dreams. However, in BartenderOne’s signature MasterClass, that dream becomes a reality as students try their hand behind the bar at a variety of nightlife hubs during mobile, hands-on classes, taught by head bartenders from across the country. This class is just part of the school's unique offerings, which were created by the school’s founders, who surveyed 14 bartending schools on five continents before founding BartenderOne. They wanted to offer their students a preeminent bartending education, so they fused the best of the curricula they saw and left out archaic practices, such as memorizing lists of outdated recipes. The resulting classes—held in active bars to provide real-word experience—run the gamut from full bartender training to workshops on specific skills, such as martini-making, whiskey pouring, or balancing another bartender on your nose. The school is run by people who own and operate bars and restaurants, and they guarantee internships for all of their graduates.
