The Southern California Bartending School- Orange County

Southern California Bartending School If you are considering becoming a certified bartender and want to gain the experience, skills and confidence you need to make it, this is the place for you! Bartending part-time 2-3 nights per week can mean anywhere from an extra $100 -$1000+ a week! The exciting thing about bartending is that ANYONE can learn to do it with proper training. You have FUN while you work, you generally work short shifts and you leave with CASH in your hand!

Our professional bartending school instructors care about your success. We work patiently with our students to make sure that you are retaining the information taught. We are accessible via email 24 hours a day for support and to answer questions. Our free course manual is updated annually and includes only the most current and relevant information. Unlike other schools, we only teach you the drink recipes that people are asking for now, not 20 years ago. Why waste money at other schools being taught Singapore Slings or Harvey Wallbangers, which were popular in the 20s, when HUNDREDS of new drink recipes come out every year?
