Wow the bartending class was a lot of fun , you learn everything really fast. It was all very easy to learn for being a newbie I enjoyed all the word references. They were all really funny, I also enjoyed learning things about liquors/cordials etc. I would never have known all this if I did not take the class. This gave me the opportunity to do something exciting.

Woo woo, that is one of my favorite new drinks! I am a social person and cannot be chained down to a desk. The best part of the class was the speed drills , our instructor made sure we knew what was in the drinks if not you had to do it

The American Bartenders School taught me the tricks of the trade to help me make some extra money. I loved the drink drills and our instructor Howard??s wealth of knowledge. The class was very informative and fun , there was never a dull moment. I feel that this class builds a strong foundation for any new or experienced bartender.

For a long time I have been thinking of being a bartender and now I have the time to do it. I always wanted to learn how to make the drinks fast and interact with people at the same time. The instructor was always open to questions with clear explanations and real life examples. This is the best way to learn how to bartend in a safe , proper and fun way.

For me this a big opportunity to speak contact and learn english. I am from a foreign country and there is a lot of opportunity for bartending in the city. The class was easy to understand it was like be at a real bar. To me it was very nice that they were patient with me and my understanding of little english. Howard his give me a real understanding all about this job.

As a ??frat boy ?? I know how much money can be made as a bartender. What I liked the best was Howard and the practice he gave us, along with the information we learned in depth.

The professionalism and the caring of the staff was also a plus. I feel good about this and I can't wait to start slinging drinks for my boys and the ladies

I took a bartending course to work less and have more time studying for school and learn to about different types of drinks. I love whiskey and they taught me about all the different types. I learned about the angels share and the devils cut and many more things about my favorite beverage. It was straight forward and entertaining. I feel that I will learn more here than any other place just from all the knowledge and real word experience from my instructors.

This is always something I wanted to do but I never took the plunge. Let me say I am so glad that I finally did this. It was all hands on and that made it fun, because I wasn??t all about reading but making the drinks. I ate my words after that because after shaking drinks all night your hands get cold. After awhile you get used to it and you keep plowing through the orders. What an amazing class I am so glad I made the time to get it done. If you're like me and unsure about when it??s a good time to do this I say do it now or you will kick yourself for not doing it sooner.

I took the 2 hr mixology class and had a good time. The only down fall was that I did not know there was so much to memorize. Bartending is alot harder than I thought. You need more time to learn drinks and be fast. But it was a good way to get a feel for what it is, and once I save up some money I will take the longer class.

I had a lot of fun in class I learned so much in a short amount of time. I though it would be hard because I never worked in a restaurant or bar before. My teacher was serious about making us the best, his teaching style was nice tough love you wanted to make him proud of your accomplishments. The experience that I gained will help me and others to find some much needed motivation to try some thing new.

The classes at American Bartending were enjoyable and informative. I'm happy to have chosen them because they have multiple bar stations, so we all got to have our own stations. Which meant a lot of behind the bar time= practice, practice, practice
Instructor Joe was wonderful and caring. He'd even stay after class to help anyone out!

Bartending is a profession that best suits me I am a creature of the night. I love to work under pressure and I felt I got some real world experience here. No joke it will be busy on a Saturday night and I want to be ready for anything that is thrown at me. The speed techniques were explained clearly, I really started to excel and get faster at making my drink orders it was fun and kept me focused on the task at hand. I did not know that my potential was so great thanks for the encouragement.
