Had a great evening with Rob. Not only was it fun, but we learnt a lot and have a new appreciation for looking more closely at the alcohol we buy. Rob was awesome. Totally worth the money. We are already looking to do it again.

It was an interesting course and fun too. Was longer than anticipated and only ended up making 3 drinks! I was prepared for the "GROUPON FEE" the day of the course because I learned about it when I registered for the event, but this information was not on the initial Groupon offer. I have not done the math, but the discount listed on Groupon seems to be very high when you have to pay a surcharge when you register using Groupon.

This was by far the most fun and interesting Saturday night I’ve had in a long time. Great drinks, great atmosphere and an unbelievable instructor. Rob had us laughing and learning the whole night. Highly recommend to anybody who enjoys having a good time. Just be sure to make your momma proud and show up early. Will be back again for sure!!

What You'll Get

A good bartender always knows what drink to serve, whether it's to help patrons relax or soak their dentures. Learn life skills with today's Groupon: for $39, you get either a two-hour Martini/Shooter Insanity workshop or a two-hour Know Your Spirits workshop at Bartending School of Ontario (a $99 value). Workshops are offered Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., with workshops rotating each night.

Winner of the Toronto Sun Readers' Choice Award for five years running, the Bartending School of Ontario's expert mixologists lead instructive workshops on concocting intricate libations. In the Martini/Shooter Insanity session, burgeoning barkeeps learn to craft classic and contemporary mixed drinks including manhattans and B-52s and to perform bar tricks including swallowing a highball glass. During the Know Your Spirits workshop, teachers acquaint drink-slingers with an array of cocktail recipes, from tropical daiquiris to sour drinks while covering practical skills including up-selling and increasing tips. A limit of 16 participants per class ensures that instructors can dole out hands-on tutelage and allows students to refine their product knowledge while tasting libations. Each workshop takes place in a classroom designed to recreate a fully functional bar with drink-making supplies and bouncers suffering from attachment issues. Those inspired to journey onward into the realm of professional bartending can check out the school's job placement program.
