Good bartenders always have advice for their customers’ problems, which is why it’s best not to bartend in a particle-physics lab or a prison. Hone your listening ear with this Groupon.
$209 for 40-Hour Bartending Course with Certification ($495 Value)
Monday–Friday classes are available in any of the following sessions:
- One week of classes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Two weeks of classes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., or 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.<p>
The Wilshire Boulevard location also holds Saturday classes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for students who miss a scheduled class during the week. Learn how to mix, stir, and shake inside the facility under the tutelage of experienced instructors in a fully operational bar setting. Burgeoning drink slingers learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers in more than 200 recipes. Serious bartenders-to-be partake in 40 knowledge-soaked hours of extensive training and hands-on practice that cover 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. Additionally, the in-depth course covers wine distinctability, draft pouring, and keg tapping, all culminating in the bestowal of a bartending certification, which can help land a job at a real-life bar occupied by Cliff Clavin impersonators.<p>
