School of Mix
Churning out certificates since 1981, School of Mix sends its students through a variety of structured cocktail curriculums for both interested civilians and those who seek a career in professional drink slinging. Establishments around the Vancouver area and in international locales recognize School of Mix certificates as indicative of all-around mastery of bar keeping and maraschino-cherry sculpting. Additionally, 75 per cent of those who finish a bartending or wine education go on to work with the school's event-staffing arm, Mix Event Staffing.
