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.

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.
