In as little as one week, Bar Time’s experienced team of mixologists and bar owners transforms students of all experience levels into certified bartenders. In an onsite bar environment, the instructors cover bar fundamentals, teaching students to properly pour, make garnishes, and craft specialty concoctions by mixing, blending, and layering. Along with front-of-the-house skills, students learn basics of bar management, such as controlling inventory and explaining to time-travelling police that Prohibition is over.
After the 35-hour training, which is split into one week of daytime classes, two weeks of nighttime classes, or six weeks of Saturday classes, pupils are ready for professional gigs, some of which Bar Time can supply through their event staffing. Bar Time also offers event planning for soiree hosts and consulting services for budding restaurateurs who could use a crash course in the fundamentals of opening and staffing a new eatery.
