Orange County’s #1
Rated Professional Bartending School

“This is an excellent course and it’s well worth the price. I researched all the programs in the area and online, and picked this class based on the yelp reviews and the professional website – I was not disappointed. From registration, to course materials and lectures, to finding a job, SCBS is 5 stars. After the class, they even hooked me up with my first bartending gig – a wedding – and I made back the entire cost of the class.” ~ Lauren Patterson, Riverside
