Mixology Courses for Fast, Practical Learning
Unlike many other sectors, mixology classes give complete beginners the chance to get a foot in the door when it comes to the bar industry. While reputable course providers and bartender schools like The Spirit Lab do offer courses for different skill levels, knowing you can get experience even if you’re starting out is a great option to have. Beginner mixology courses can be taken across an intensive week, meaning you can put your new-found skills to practice straight after! Our course even takes place in a fully working bar so that you can get real-life experience for everything you learn.
Go Anywhere in the World
One of the joys of entering mixology and bartending is that it’s a skill which can take you all over the world. The Spirit Lab certification is recognised in over 60 countries worldwide. This means you could secure work in the EU, Asia, the USA, Australia and plenty more. We even have students train with us so that they can get bartending jobs more easily while travelling around the globe on their adventures. We also have lots of different nationalities come to train with us in London. It’s a great way to see an incredible city and meet new people while completing bartenders school.
Build a Successful Mixology Career
