Bartending School Online
Learn All You Need to Know About Bartending
Online and FREE
If you’re looking for a bartending school online, you’ve come to the right place. On this page, you’ll find links to dozens of bartending video tutorials that can either teach you how to bartend, help you brush up on your bartending skills or teach you a couple new bartending tips and bar tricks that you can use to increase your tips.
You should know that bartending school is not for everyone. Some people will tell you it’s a waste of money and others will say it’s the best decision they ever made.People who are against bartending schools argue that learning 200+ drinks is a waste of your brain power because you’ll never need to make most of them.
People who support bartending schools say that the knowledge, experience, hands-on training and job placement assistance you get from bartending schools is invaluable when trying to land the perfect bartending job. Whatever you decide to do, you can always come here and learn bartending online – study the videos below and practice as much as possible.
Bartending basics are crucial if you are going to succeed as a bartender. Keep in mind, however, that great bartenders have BOTH the soft skills (a people person) as well as the hard skills (what you learn in the bartending video tutorials).
To be a good bartender, you need to:
1. Know about 30-50 core drinks
2. Have a good memory
3. Be able to work in a fast-paced environment
4. Enjoy people
5. Be OUTGOING and PERSONABLE
If you don’t have #4 and #5, don’t waste your time trying to become a bartender. If you have #4 and #5 already, then you don’t need to waste your time and money going to a bartending school to learn how to make drinks.
I’ve been in the bar industry since 1992 and in all those years, I’ve hired many people without experience – because they had the personality and willingness to learn.
