This was a Christmas gift for my dad. He loved the class! Though it was initially hard to get in touch with the company, they had great instructors with lots of experience and went over a lot of material in the 40 hrs. He had a great experience!

Relaxed atmosphere, down to earth instructor, hands on experience! After throwing summer parties in my backyard for the last two 2 years, I finally learned how to pour! Taught me how to organize my bar and made me super efficient and fast! Thanks ABC!

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 to ABC Bartending School, with locations in Altadena, Colton, and Los Angeles. Choose between the following options:

  • For $69, you get a four-hour mixology class (a $150 value).
  • For $197, you get 32 hours of bartending classes (a $495 value).<p>

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. A four-hour mixology course shows prospective booze artists how to navigate the confusing waters of cocktail crafting as instructors pull from more than 100 basic and elaborate recipes for practice. Serious bartenders-to-be will learn the basics of alcoholic alchemy, blending liquors and mixers into sippable sensations in 32 hours of classes.

The extensive training and hands-on practice includes 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 distinguishing different wines, 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.
