They make you feel confident and relieves a lot of pressure when teaching - very encouraging which is great because I get discouraged very easily. I was referred by a friend. It was number one on the Google search of bartending schools in N.Y.. The website is fabulous and professional - I never felt like anything funny was going on.

I found Tom to be a great instructor and also a lot of fun. I'm happy that I chose the morning class. Compared to the others, I felt NY Bartending was more reputable. Also, I cam to the Intro Class (which other schools didn't offer) + I loved it. The other schools I looked into kept calling me to set up an appointment when I said I would contact them, which looks pretty desperate for students. They also refused to quote a price over the phone.

The classes were overcrowded. I had to share a work station and the instructors were to busy putting the moves on the female students to help me when I needed it.

Hurricane Katrina ran me out of New Orleans, I needed an enjoyable occupation while preparing for business school; I wanted skills taught by a recognized bartending institution. One of the best most interesting instructors I've ever had for any class, use of humor, experience, obvious expertise knowledge, great personality, friendly

I believe I've had the best of the bunch, each instructor has their own style of bartending that gave me insight into the various types of scenes out there that I will have to become accustomed to. They are very easy going, very detailed oriented and when it comes to preference and style they always have some helpful hint to enlighten your views of bartending. The website really caught my eye, everything was well organized and very informative, no b.s. like most advertisements. It had a very professional outlook to what we would be evolving to be...Always motivating.

What can I say except thank you! The atmosphere, overall appearance and knowledge of everyone on staff

PROS: Certified, Professional, Comprehensive

i frst saw the ad in the Village Voice and checked our their website. it seemed very professional and i took an introductory class for free which made me decide to go to this school. I wanted to learn from the best and so I did...I learned a lot during my two weeks and they explained and broke down the business. I had an awesome time and would recommend this school if anyone was interested in bartending.

New York Bartending School had a level of professionalism that surpassed every other school. It offers a lot more than any other school I have come across, making it my first choice. During the class you work with other students who are at your level and make you feel secure. You get one on one attention from your teacher making you knowledgeable. I also loved the fact that they taught us all more than just Mixology but also the rules and regulations of the business.

First and foremost the school was licensed by the State and secondly it had everything needed and required to prepare me in my search for a bartending position. They have great instructors with a great sense of humor and extensive knowledge. The school prepared me immensely to go out into the real world and bartend.

Actual former graduates regerred the school to me as being extremely good and a fun experience. My instructor was an excellent intructor. He actually takes time to make sure his students are comfortable with the learning process and in the actual drink making. On a scale of 1-10 he definitely scores a 10 (10 being the best).
