“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

“First off, I want to thank Laura and Jamie for being awesome and allowing me to have an educational and fun experience. I can truly say that your course has given me the extra push and confidence that I’ve needed to go out and live my dream…bartend! I recently got hired at a restaurant in the Fairplex grounds in Pomona and using everything I know from this class has really let people around me know that I am built for bartending. I’ve continued to study this craft and will never forget my times here at Southern California Bartending school.”
