Students learn behind fully-equipped bars, ensuring a training experience that self-taught prospective bartenders simply don’t have access to.

How You Need to Do It

Training from any bartending school in Miami would not be complete without thorough instruction in bar procedures. These topics include:

• Opening and closing the bar
• Handling cash and customer service
• Bartending rules and regulations
• How to ID someone and recognize a fake ID
• Using POS computer systems

The Benefits of Training on an Actual Bar

By completing a course with Elite Bartending School, students benefit from practice with actual ingredients in a realistic setting. While it is possible to find online resources to learn drink recipes and bartending techniques, most individuals do not have a fully-stocked bar at their disposal. Practicing with fake ingredients does not offer the practice of understanding the viscosity of different liquors for example, which also affects how they are poured. It is also important to be able to taste the drinks. Bartenders should know basic recipes, be able to correctly yield ingredients, and describe the flavor of the drinks to customers.
