A Fun and Interactive 2.5 hour Bartending Class

Friday Evenings from 7-9:30PM

Saturday Evenings from 6-8:30PM

Do you know what bad habits that bartender might have when making your drinks? If you pay $20 for a drink, are you really getting your money’s worth? In just a few hours, our Introduction to Bartending class will give you many of the answers you didn’t realize you had questions for.


Introduction To Bartending


For more than 40 years, Fine Art Bartending has been training bartenders in Vancouver on how to best make up drinks. For this Introductory Bartending Class, our bartending instructor points out just what a bar, pub or restaurant might be serving you, plus what you really should be drinking instead.

In just 2.5 hours, this cocktail seminar quickly introduces students to what really happens behind the bar. Learn why that ideal margarita should be shaken or how easily a that perfect martini can be prepared. Students finish the class not only knowing how to make a few drinks themselves, but also leave being much more knowledgeable customers.

We have a quick IG video from one of our more recent Intro to Bartending classes here if you want a sneak peak of the class. Check it out under the link —> https://www.instagram.com/reel/Chh8bNVp1fz/

In This Class You Can Expect the following:

  • Know Proper Pouring Techniques
  • Practice 4 different Methods of Mixing drinks
  • Learn 12 different Cocktails
  • Enjoy 4 different cocktail samples
  • Note what Major Spirits to Stock Your Home Bar with
  • Understand Martini Basics and Making Classic Cocktails
  • Pick up some tips on How To Be A Better Customer/Guest

We also have a more extensive Bartender Certification Course that covers much more material over 28-hours of class time. During those classes, we cover many more cocktails, and have a bunch more practice time. We also get into more cocktail making theory and more history of each spirit… plus have a whole lot of fun. We offer that training program every couple of weeks.

NOTE: We always have to say this… but we are a bartending school, not a bar. We do have some cocktail samples for you to enjoy throughout the class so it is always a good idea to take transit or arrange alternate transportation downtown when attending these classes.

Classes are always entertaining, especially with a friend!

Customer Feedback:

My husband and I attended the Intro to Bartending class yesterday, and I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time! The class was exactly what we were looking for. Our instructor was easy going and approachable, while being tactful in correcting students. We tried the hands-on practice sessions and he pointed out how we should pour each drink. Even though I have limited experience with bartending and mixology I found the class easy to understand and follow. We are looking forward to hosting a party with our friends to try out what we’ve learned. We both agreed it was worth the drive.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Katie W. from Abbotsford

Again, I can’t say how amazing this introductory bartending class was. We are seasoned consumers of spirits and now know exactly what we should be purchasing the next time we go into a liquor store. We also now know the proper way to mix up a Manhattan. My girlfriend and I both enjoyed this bartending class a ton and have already recommended friends of ours. Thanks again!
