Learn How to Bartend at Fine Art Bartending
Vancouver’s Best Bartending School for over 40 years and teaching since 1981
Fine Art Bartending was founded in Winnipeg back in 1972 by John Barkman. He was very successful in the Manitoba market and wanted to take the program to more people. Next was expansion across Canada’s western provinces, which followed over the next decade. Thanks to the early efforts of both John, and his wife Jean, we are Canada’s Best Bartending School.
Back in 1981, Fine Art Bartending opened its doors on the West Coast to start training everyone on how to work behind the bar. For over 40 years now in Vancouver, our instructors have helped to launch thousands of graduates into successful careers in the hospitality industry. The program we have is not quite the same as what was taught over 50 years ago. We have improved the program by adding the regulations and standards required in British Columbia. As for those classic bartending principles… those have pretty much stayed the same over the years. Drink recipes may have changed over the years, but we continue to keep our program current, relevant and fun! Fine Art Bartending graduates are still the best in Vancouver.
