What You'll Get
Good bartenders always have advice for their customers' problems, which is why it's best not to bartend in a particle-physics lab or in a prison. Hone your listening ear with today's Groupon: for $199, you get 40 hours of bartending classes at ABC Bartending School (a $599 value).
As part of the nation's largest privately owned bartending-class provider, ABC Bartending School's experienced instructors lend pub-keeping tutelage in a fully operational bar setting. Learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations. Serious bartenders-to-be will partake in 40 knowledge-soaked hours of extensive training and hands-on practice regarding 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 to meet the demands of a fast-paced job, and pouring procedures allow them to rake in tips quicker. The in-depth course also covers wine distinctability, draft pouring, and glass selection. ABC dubs all grads certified mixologists and offers classes in one- or two-week settings to make time for slow-motion bar slides.

About ABC Bartending School
The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 40 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's L trains.
