What You'll Get

Though it's a good way to connect with others and a fundamental part of living near train tracks, pouring one’s heart out to strangers is an unsustainable career. Learn a more employable pour with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get admission into a bartending course at Mixology Bartending Academy (up to a $299 value).

With instructors boasting more than 50 years of combined experience in the art of drink-slinging, Mixology Bartending Academy's courses provide budding bartenders with comprehensive training in all aspects of the bartending industry. During their tippling tutelage, potable-pouring pupils will absorb valuable knowledge regarding proper bartending etiquette; product knowledge of liquors, wines, spirits, shooters, and other concoctions; and classic drink recipes such as the Vodka Collins, Tom Collins, Joe Collins, John Collins, and Joan Collins. The 28-foot wooden classroom bar features eight wells and four back bars, and displays more than 100 different labels of teaching alcohols to provide students with a realistic learning environment. In addition to the top-notch tools, class sizes are typically kept to a modest 10 to 15 students, giving each participant adequate attention and the assurance that everybody around them really does know their name.

Aside from attaining mixing mastery, students will also learn the customer-service aspects of tending bar as well as common liabilities associated with the industry and its penchant for tiny swords. The Mixology Bartending Academy offers day and night classes five days a week to students six months shy of their 21st birthday and older, and provides the option of a two-week course or one-week accelerated class. Course fees include all text materials, supplies, and a certificate of completion, and M.B.A. also provides employment assistance to students upon successful completion of the course. Check out the FAQ page for more information, and nab today's Groupon to jump-start an intoxicating new career.
