During Prohibition, malt-swilling protesters nearly overthrew the U.S. government, fighting hard to replace President Woodrow Wilson with a barrel of bourbon. Learn to sling cocktails that taste like freedom with today’s Groupon: for $194, you get a 40-hour-equivalent bartending course with certification, course materials, and unlimited access to job-placement assistance at National Bartenders School (up to a $495 value). Choose from the following locations: Wilshire Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles, Canyon Country, Lakewood, Orange, Sherman Oaks, and Riverside.

National Bartenders School bestows budding cocktail crafters with serving savvy, a rarefied repertoire of potables, and industry connections for future employment. The 40-hour-equivalent libation lesson encompasses each essential element of beverage management—from money handling to mixology—and teaches beginner bartenders more than 200 saucy cocktails and advanced barfly-swatting techniques. Amateur amaretto slingers can complete the bartending course in one week (eight-hour classes Monday–Friday), two weeks (four-hour classes Monday–Friday), or during multiple Saturday sessions (at the Hollywood location only, if students are unable to attend weekday classes).

An experienced staff of martini maestros will guide students through glassware and garnishes, sharing tricks of the trade gleaned from California’s snazziest whistle-wetting establishments. Each certified graduate gets unlimited access to job-placement assistance, drawn from a database of thousands of bars and nightclubs nationwide. Let job-placement personnel serve you up to prospective employers who will marvel at your mojito making, fancy bottle work, and lightning-quick lemon twisting.

Though National Bartenders School sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Customer Reviews

It takes about a month to get in, so the earlier you call and make appointment the better. They are always booked cause they are so good.
