1 – Big Return On Investment – A Bartender in a great establishment can make $200-$300 per night in tips plus an hourly wage (probably minimum wage). A bartender in an entry-level type bartending job at a slower pub, or catering company is going to make AT LEAST $75 a night in tips, plus your hourly wage of $9 per hour. In a 6 hour (average) shift, at an entry-level bartending job your making about $22 per hour, in a high end bartending job, closer to $50 per hour. And, of course, it’s all cash.
You could end up in a great, high-end bartending job right out of bartending school, it does happen, but if all you can find is an “entry-level” bartending job, stay 3-6 months, and then take your certificate, and now your experience, and go find a job at a place where you can make higher tips.
Bartending School Costs $499 and 2 weeks of your time. With the income potential, even at an entry-level job, you can pay off the $499 in a week of work or less. You can end up making more money per hour than the friend of yours that just spend 4 years and $40,000 on university.
2 – Hands On Practice – You cant learn to be a smooth confident bartender at home standing behind your kitchen sink, reading cocktail books & watching videos online.
