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.

Mixology Bartending Academy

Mixology Bartending Academy prepares its pupils to work behind a bar top, teaching them drink recipes and serving etiquette, as well as informing them about alcohol safety and liabilities. Students learn from instructors with as much as 17 years of professional experience in a real bar setting that features glassware, working equipment, and buzzing neon signs.

Far from merely imparting basic bartender knowledge, Mixology aims to boost students' customer-service skills, netting more tips and tears of joy from satisfied customers, and an entire division of the company is focused on helping recent grads find jobs. Plus, after students hone their skills through the one- or two-week courses, they are encouraged to return to the school at any time to practice their craft under the watchful eye of an expert, free of charge.
