The Fine Art Bartending classes were a great help. I took day classes since I had just finished with my previous job. Learning to bartend was a great experience and I found it opened up a lot of doors for me, especially when employers found out what bartending course I took. The classes are awesome! You learn amazing drinks and the students and instructor made each class very enjoyable. In class, I’m presented with a new experience everyday and the instructors even helped me out with tips on finding a job, just get going and start earning the big tips.
