This school is the real deal. When not attending classes they make sure to place you with work so it is easy to keep yourself afloat while taking the classes. The staff is curtious and helpful, while the instructors are knowledgeable and make the classes fun and interesting. I for sure feel prepared for any restaurant work that may come my way.
The course covers a lot of ground, the instructors are all real bartenders (good ones, and really nice ones!), the cocktails you’re learning are legit and up to date (no Harvey Wallbangers and Pink Squirrels), and the testing/certification standards are sufficiently challenging. In other words – this is a real bartending school and not for coasters (as in people who coast, not what you put cocktails on – they have lots of those there). If you want to turbo-boost your new bartending career or get back up to speed after years away from the bar, this is your place. Plus it’s seriously fun. Very highly recommended.
Really glad I found this Groupon. I was in a bind for money and I came across this deal and spoke to the manager who said he could get me working events in two weeks. I was working nights so I was able to come in during the afternoon and take my classes. I am now working at a bar and able to provide for myself and my daughter. Thank you NBS
This was much easier than I expected. I got to make my own schedule and zipped through the program in a month. The location was nice, they had an actual bar set which was cool. Everything was really easy going and if I had any questions the teachers helped me out. Really appreciated it the staff, thanks guys!
Great experience! I wanted to learn how to bartend so I could gain some extra income and I ended up taking the full course and really enjoyed myself. The teachers were pretty helpful and I was able to find work right away.
My time spent at NBS was amazing. The instructors are really on their game and not only gave me the skills and knowledge to be a great bartender, but also made it really easy. Not to mention the availability of gigs and full time jobs provided after NBS. If you're looking to become a bartender or shine up your skills, and become a part of an amazing industry family, I highly highly highly recommend NBS. This school is the only reason I survived my first in L.A. Good luck!!
I've always been interested in bartending but truthfully, people always scared me away by saying how expensive it was to get certified. It was so pleasant coming here and knowing that I won't be breaking my budget and would learn how to bartend super quick! Like, super quick.
The instructors make learning about bartending super easy, fun and interactive. As if it's your best friend with you and you're both just casually learning about cocktails.

About A Chat with National Bartenders
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our Schools have trained tens of thousands of working bartenders since we opened our first school in 1984, each with individual attention. In addition, we assist each of our graduates in getting bartending job placements anywhere in the country!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Paul Michaels’ path to mixology was not direct. “I quickly realized that I was making significantly more as a bartender on the weekends than as a public school teacher, not to mention I realized enjoyed bartending more” So i created National Bartender's School and Staffing in 2013.
What do you love most about your job? I love working with new passionate and energetic clients each day. People usually come to our school in search of a new career choice. I love being able to teach them the tools and techniques required to make it in the competitive yet lucrative industry of Bartending.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? DONT WASTE YOUR TIME GOING TO ANY OTHER BARTENDING SCHOOL! This school has exceeded my expectations and then some! The teachers are friendly, easy to understand. Its very hard to find schools like these and with the information I learned I felt like I should be paying waaaaay more!
