I saw in Add in AM NY and I was always curious on mixology. Great Instructor. He gave great history lessons and ideas on making new drinks. His work experience was perfect because he was able to tell actuall stories of Bartending.

Pros: the seminars

I asked a few friends where I can go, every each one of them recommended me to NYBS. The free intro class really sucked me in. It was fun and you get to learn more than just Mixology. The actual classes are just as fun. Four hours go just like that.

Pros: couldn't have asked for a better instructor!

The job placement was what drew my attention and the trial class helped in my decision making. I really enjoyed learning about all the different liquors because I came here not knowing anything.

The school is licensed and your website was very appealing. Also your location helped in my decision making as did the cost compatred to some other options. From mixing drinks to tapping a keg, interview techniques, confidence, in my own mind I am now much more comfortable (confident) about seeking and gaining employment as a bartender. Thanks!

I liked the flexible hours that they offered. The price was reasonable & being able to return anytime throughout my life w/o paying is a big plus. The instructor made us feel very relaxed and encouraged us to learn. He is a great motivator and he really wants you to succeed. My peers were very helpful & lots of fun!

An ad in the Village Voice attracted me. I was very pleased that the school allowed me to apply the deposit I left in Spring '06, when I returned in Nov. '06.

Pros: learning the many mixed drink ingredients and practicing w/speed drills

.

NYBS offered hands on training in a realistic bar setting and was exactly as advertised. The main appeal was being able to return for follow up classes and placement help both here and abroad. The Absolut presentation was cool also.\r

Very good instructor. His method of learning by doing helped greatly with my retention of most of the drinks I learned about. Knowledge of wines was very cool. I also thought that he demonstrated a good bartender persona in terms of the energy and outgoingness his position requires.

I was informed more than any other place I tried to check out before deciding on a school. Also the fact that I can come back anytime is great. The instructor was very informative. Letting us know if we did anything wrong and keeping us confident which made it a good experience. I didn't get bored.

.

Appearrance of the school itself, after attending the intro-class, it was a pretty easy decision. Also reading the testimonials online and comparing to the other schools reviews and comments. My favorite experience aside from the taste-test from Absolut was actually learning the history and process of how spirits/wine and beer are made and where there distinct flavors come from. It will allow for me to be a more informed resource and educated bartender, rather than just a ""drinkslinger""!

I had an awesome time at New York Bartending School. Everyone was really great ! I got hired about a week after I graduated @ The Manhattan Bistro. I learned so much that the other bartenders are asking me to teach them some of the cool drinks I know. Now I'm the head bartender. Thanks so much guys! Come visit me again sometime- Gursimran

Pros: I learned so many drinks

.

First off, I attended the free class. I've just moved to New York, and figured I needed a well-paying job, and bartending was the field I chose. I navigated the website, went to the free class, and I knew this school was good. The instructor created a very focused learning atmosphere. I came in on Monday not knowing a thing (just that I like to drink anything). Now, I know the basics and a good surplus of drinks than I ever thought possible.

I joined this school because I read all these reviews.. They didn't come through on job placement. Now I want to know: how much of my wasted $700 tuition went to pay the person who sits there writing all these reviews?

When I walked I thought I was in a real lounge. I went through the entire class and had a great time. I learned a lot, and made new friends. My problem is, I still have no job! I graduated mid summer, and I have all this bar knowledge in my head, just no where to put it to use. They bent over backwards for me while I was still a student, but the day I graduated I started to get the brush off. I am disappointed because I thought I would have a job by now.

The website seemed legit, and being recognized by the NYS Dept. of Ed. convinced me. The classroom really catches the bar feel, and the instructors kept the atmosphere jovial + fun even though we were learning a lot. Vast knowledge and experience really helped in my ability to pick up the trade rather quickly.

While I was taking the classes at the school I got hired at Hispaniola. It's a cool restaurant with a fusion of latin/asian flavor in the heights. I really like working there. The school really gave me the tools to do well at my job especially making mojito's which is our most popular drink. Everyone was really helpful.They even came by to visit and see how I was doing. Just wanted to say thanks guys! \r

I went to this school because I knew the training was up to par. I had worked as a manager for 2 years so I knew what to expect when looking for a job, as I had to hire/fire bartenders. I started as a host so I never really leaned to bartend, although I could jump behind the bar and make all the basic drinks. I took the course so that I could fill when a bartender did not show up. The training was excellent. Job placement was realistic in what you had to do to find work. They also offered several bars for the students to go to to gain experience. I found many jobs on their website. The bottom line is some people just want a job handed to them, it does not work that way, it is all about timing, personality and following up on interviews. In my opinion they taught students the right way and provided them with the tools to find a job. Hey you can lead a horse to water...............

Pros: Excellent training! No one can dispute this!

Cons: Honestly did no see any. I just think some people expect a 'free pass' to getting a job.

About a week after I graduated I started working at different catering companies. I've worked at 8 since then and made alot of money. I'm even working at the Metropolitan museum of art which has an amazing view of the city's skyline. The school has really given me the tools to get these great jobs and made the experience of going there unforgettable. Thanks! Johan L.
