My teacher was really patient, and informative. He took his time and went over several things I was having a hard time understanding. One of my favorite experiences here was making new friends and learning several drinks prep and garnishes etc.

Pros: Fun time

.

Of the 3 schools to which I inquired, they were the only one who picked up the phone. I asked my former boss (a restaurant/bar owner) and he recommended the school. Made this course a pleasure not a chore. The class atmosphere was straight-to-the-point, informative, fast-paced, amicable and organized.

Very slick sales presentation to get me to join, assembly line training and no job as a result. the teachers are very into themselves and are more interested in hitting on students than helping them find work

I choose New York Bartending School because the website was well out and professional, the included lessons seemed much more thorough, and the feedback was positive on the internet. I really enjoyed doing speed drills in class, by the end of the first week I really knew what I was doing and realized I'd learned so much!

Eager to help & make sure all concepts were retained. Made us feel comfortable from beginning. Very knowledgeable & ""kept it real"" throughout course. Through researching schools online, this one stood out. They called me right away when I submitted my info & everyone was eager to show me around. When I visited, I immediately felt comfortable, and like this is where I should get trained.

I checked out about four others and t his one seemed to be the best option. When I came in and checked out the facilities and instructors I was sold. I feel they are very competent and able instructors. It is my belief that he is directly responsible for me retaining so much information in a small amount of time. He has a very effective, and fun teaching method.

Meeting with the director convinced me that NYBS would be my choice. Made the learning of lots of information seem effortless. Kept the class light and fun, while still delivering tons of knowledge.

The instructor is an absolute doll - he knows what he's doing, loves it, and makes it fun. Extensive prep, the range and depth of the material covered. Learning about the materials & business, not just drink making, really interested me. The whole time was great - I liked practicing as if we were in a real bar setup with other class members ordering drinks. Lots of fun.

The instructors & agents were friendly and welcoming and compared to other schools the course looked more involved. Getting to work in group made it appear more lifelike (you behind bar; ""customer"" in chair) and made it more fun and less stressful. The teacher was very upfront & honest about what to expect; he helped prepare us mentally & emotionally for our tests & for the 'real world'. He was funny & I liked how he drew on his own life experiences as a bartender & incorporated it into the class.
