Bartending Course

  • Did you know that bartenders average $100-$300 per shift?
  • Did you know that tending bar is ranked in the top 5 part time positions in the country?
  • Did you also know that being a bartender allows even full time students or career workers an unbelievable opportunity to have fun while making great money for merely a handful of hours per week?

Being a bartender is so much more than simply standing behind a bar making drinks for a dollar here and there. Few people realize that if you simply have the drive to make fantastic cocktails, love hanging out with all walks of life, need that social outlet to just be yourself, or just plain get a kick out of watching others let loose after a hard week at work; then being a bartender is the absolute dream job for YOU!

Ok, so you love your career. Or maybe you are in school to pursue the ultimate degree. You might even have a wild and crazy hair to own your own bar! Whatever you are currently doing in life, nothing is more satisfying than going out to run your mouth and have a blast for just a few hours a week and.......guess what......get PAID for it! That’s right - making drinks is simply an excuse to stand in front of people you want to meet and hang out with while getting paid big bucks just having a great time. Never thought of it that way did you?

Now that we have your attention, and you’re excited about getting into this amazing industry, why on earth would you choose Raleigh’s Bartending School over some other school? That is a fantastic question. Since we knew that question was coming, we decided to keep it super simple, and to make it painfully obvious. So, after we hired a handful of secret shoppers to make a whole bunch of phone calls to find out the differences amongst bartending schools countrywide, we simply collaborated the pages of data and put together this amazing comparison chart below.....much like cell phone companies do when you choose a phone or data plan. Ah yes.....visual aids! Well, here is what we found out: Bartending-School-Comparison-chart
