Get a Nightlife!

Being a bartender is a part time source of income for some and a full time career for others. No matter how you slice it, bartending is a lifestyle. Want to make more friends? Earn extra money to pay for that next vacation? Bartending is your fix. If you're looking for a career, do a little research. Check out a local bar that's known for creative cocktails and watch your bartender at work. It's an art form. If you have what it takes, want to work hard and have a great time, fill out the Quick Contact form to the right. We encourage students to come tour the facility, talk to other students, and do your homework.

ServSafe - Another PBSA Difference

Applying for your first bartending job can be a difficult process. Sometimes you'll start as a bar back, other times you'll get behind the bar on slower days to get your feet wet. Our job assistance program will help you find the job, but you have to have the skills and tools to show that you're a pro. Your ServSafe certification shows that you not only have the training, but advanced understanding of how to be a responsible bartender.

Get a nightlife - Bartend!

kc11Have you ever found yourself in a bar envying the bartenders as they have a good time and make even better money? Wonder how they learned the skills necessary to pour drinks so quickly, remember all those recipes, and keep their cool all at the same time? How did they get there? Could I learn to do that?

Bartending can be a tough scene to break into. Corner bars with on-the-job training are few and far between, and customers are more educated and sophisticated than ever before. In today’s world, a bartender has to be more than personable: they have to be knowledgeable, organized, and efficient.
