Bartending is a refined craft. Pouring liquor and gelatin mixtures into nitrogen-charged whipped-cream canisters to make cocktail foams is even trickier than pulling a Grey German Giant rabbit out of a hat. DrinkMaster Bartending School teaches cocktail competence in just one week (or two weekends). DrinkMaster will have you rimming glasses, mixing cosmos, and sliding perfectly frothed lagers across the bar faster than your backhand speedpour. The bartending syllabus has glassware, the art of shaking, and layered drinks for coursework and beer knowledge for homework.

DrinkMaster Bartending School's authentic in-house bar boasts vast liquor reserves. You learn how to shake martinis like Tom Cruise from fun and energetic booze experts. A good bartender can make decent money with a part-time or full-time gig (liquor consumption might be the only thing that goes up during a recession). Even if you don't turn pro, earn the respect of an Olympic-level amateur by transforming your friends' lame parties into a gourmet cocktail experience.

You can take the course in a week, four hours a day Monday through Friday, or you can train over two weekends with four hours each Saturday and Sunday (see exact hours of the scheduled courses). If you miss a class, DrinkMaster will let you make it up. At the end of the course, you'll receive a diploma approved by DrinkMaster Bartending School and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, Office of Proprietary Schools. Once you're a bartending whiz, you can come back as often as you like for refresher courses. That means this Groupon is good for a lifetime of expertly giving people increased self-confidence and louder singing voices.


Reviewers love DrinkMaster. On Citysearch, the school has earned a perfect five-star rating from nearly 40 reviewers; on Insider Pages, it gets four.

  • DrinkMaster offers everything a bartending school needs. Great downtown location, great flexible hours, awesome teachers and facilities and a good price. No doubt about it, the best bartending school of boston. – VictorNoon, Citysearch
  • I had an absolute blast and learned so much about bartending. The program is tremendously fun and so hands on! – FrankyFourFingers, Citysearch

One graduate says he's going to make attending DrinkMaster a family tradition:

  • I felt very prepared to interview because of the pre-game they taught me and how to tell the managers the stuff they needed to know about me. I'm working at Bertucci's in Newton and loving it… Oh lastly, I just signed up both my daughter and son to the DrinkMaster program. I just plunked down $600 dollars because it's the best investment I can make in helping my kids get ahead. – Roman, Insider Pages

ConversationMaster Small Talk Academy

Pouring drinks is only half of a bartender's job. Learn the rest at Boston's ConversationMaster Small Talk Academy. You'll learn the small talk every bartender needs, including:

  • "Sounds like politics as usual to me."
  • "Do you know how the Orcs first came into being? They were elves once, taken by the dark powers, tortured and mutilated. A ruined and terrible form of life. Now... perfected."
  • "This evil cannot be concealed by the power of the Elves. We do not have the strength to withstand both Mordor and Isengard. Gandalf, the Ring cannot stay here. This evil belongs to all of Middle-Earth. They must decide now how to end it. The time of the Elves is over, my people are leaving these shores. Who will you look to when we've gone? The Dwarves? They toil away in caverns, seeking riches. They care nothing for the troubles of others."
  • "Ash nazg durbatulúk,
    ash nazg gimbatul,
    ash nazg thrakatulûk
    agh burzum-ishi krimpatul."

The Bartending Schools of New England

Professional bartenders teach in classrooms set up as fully functioning bars. The facilities present lifelike conditions for students to learn skills such as the proper shake and pour for a variety of cocktails, muddling raw ingredients, and getting the right amount of head on a draft beer. Courses also cover the technical elements of bartending, which may include setting up drink stations, understanding liquor laws and board-of-health requirements, and operating payment systems that accept both credit cards and gold ingots.
