Who & What

We aspire to raise bar standards throughout the world and get back to the glorious past image of bartending by leveraging o a never-ending fundamental component: YOU!

We are a team of professional bartenders who have built a career in high end venues both in the UK and in the Asia Pacific. We decided to open the academy in early 2014 and if you are looking for a bartending school whose training and certification prepares you to work in any high-end establishment globally, the
Spirit Lab gives you just that!

Our bartending school offers top quality professional training to make you a world class bartender in order to achieve your aspiration with
professional fulfilment and salary remuneration!

Our Courses

We provide only professional high end training based on a fusion between classic style of service and modern mixology techniques.

Students can choose the International mixology course or the Advanced molecular course depending on their professional requirements and competence, but don’t worry, we will evaluate every single student before the enrolment in order to provide the most suitable learning path!

The school’s learning programs are based on a unique 70/30 split that shares the training time between the real life practical application within our fully functional development bar, and learning the theoretical principles!
