Metropolitan Bartending School
Like a craft cocktail, the teaching philosophy at Metropolitan Bartending School comes down to good ingredients in the right quantities. In Metropolitan's case, that's four parts hands-on experience to one part book learning. When working toward a certification, students spend the vast majority of their time behind the bar, where they learn not only recipes, but also speed, accuracy, pouring techniques, and crowd control. The classroom portion covers basic spirits and liqueur knowledge, provincial liquor regulations, and job search methods beyond "make sure your dad owns a bar." Anyone who is simply looking to improve their home pour game can sign up for a one-day seminar on a specific topic like bar chef skills (muddling and juicing) or a bartending flair skills.
