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 $125, you get a 35-hour bartending course (up to a $399 value) at the Professional School of Bartending's Spruce Street location in Providence.

Since 1977, the Professional School of Bartending has trained more than 10,000 bartenders. Their realistic lounge-style training facility is used to hone students into pouring machines. Over the course of the course, you'll learn all the important aspects of bartending, including mixology, product knowledge, and customer relations. During the first portion of the course, instructors discuss the flavor profiles of various spirits. Using the same equipment and techniques that real bartenders use, student barkeeps develop the skills, confidence, and knowledge needed to earn tips, impress customers, and eventually appear in a Kelly Clarkson song. To maximize individual instruction to tapsters-to-be, classes are kept to a reasonable size.

For humans held to strict time restrictions by their insolent or inflexible calendars, classes are offered six days and four nights each week. So no real drink is wasted, the Professional School of Bartending fills actual liquor bottles with simulated alcohol. This method also allows for plenty of sober practice, resulting in fast-flying fingers, quickly poured shots, and the ability to identify firewater bottles while blind-folded.

Professional School of Bartending

Professional School of Bartending has taught the art of cocktail creation to more than 10,000 bartenders since the school's inception in 1977. Inside the lounge-inspired training facility, instructors teach the necessary bartending skills ranging from exotic and traditional mixology to responsible customer service.

Graduates of the comprehensive program benefit from a lifetime job-placement-assistance program that has blossomed from a regional effort to a coast-to-coast hunt. Besides ensuring a smooth transition from graduation to career, the school has an open-door policy that leaves the light on for all graduates: former students can repeat any class free of charge helping them to revamp their mixology skills or recall how to skewer an olive without making it scream. Professional School of Bartending also streamlines local businesses' day-to-day operations by lending out its training methods and expertise through its consulting services.

It's fun and interactive. Great way to earn extra cash, or possible living. The instructors are cool and infomative, just make sure to do the work and think about being responsible.
