A good bartender always lends an ear, allowing customers to openly discuss work stress, family friction, and ways to trick professional baseball players into buying them lotto tickets. Find out how to get a scratchy out of Mark McGwire with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a 32-hour bartending certification (a $645 value) at JC Bartending Academy in Plano.

Boasting 1,700 square feet of neon- and whiskey-decorated training grounds, JC Bartending Academy trains aspiring servers with hands-on courses that prep them for a shift behind the bar and potentially working a job with the school's on-call team. The bartending school's instructors boast more than 20 years of experience shaking, stirring, and pouring. At individual workstations, highball-concocters learn basic bar techniques, such as free pouring, drink presentation, making prolonged eye contact with the customer, and maximizing speed and efficiency. Upon completing the course in as little as one week, graduates receive a certificate of completion, TABC Certification, lifetime job-placement assistance, and lifetime access to the facility and online job tools to help them earn as much as $300 per shift in recognizable hospitality venues.

JC Bartending Academy

For more than 14 years, the drink alchemists of JC Bartending Academy have handled drink-slinging duties for private events, using skills that they pass on to amateurs during the school's hands-on classes. With more than 100 certified professional mixologists on staff, no drink recipe is out of bounds as each glassful and dazzles students or sippers during bartending classes. Beneath rows of colorful bottles at a working bar, trainers splash together the basic staples of typical watering holes as well as more complex cocktails. The fully functional bar prepares students fully to prep drinks, wield a soda gun, and pick bubbles out of soda for finicky billionaires. To augment the educational services, the school also provides job-placement services, bartending phone apps, and information on certifications.

Customer Reviews

Great session. Learned a lot. Not what I expected but a lot of fun nonetheless

Fun activity and highly recommended!
Test · September 14, 2014
The class was pretty cool. On top of learning how to make some cool drinks, and some cool tricks, we got a good bit of insight into what it's like to be behind a bar on a busy night. We also got a little history lesson on how some of our favorite drinks came to be and how they got their names. The only downside was that the class was supposed to last from 7-9, but cut out half an hour early. Overall, it was a pretty good night, and I would recommend it to others.
