Finding a professional bartending school
Choosing a professional bartending school is very important. A professional bartending school such as Spirit Lab London will give you a clear and thorough understanding of how to comply with the sale of alcohol laws much as you would expect but Spirit Lab will give you the edge when it comes to experience as all of our courses include experience in our fully functional cocktail bar. Here you can hone your newly learned skills and put your cocktail skill to the tests in a real live environment with real customers with real-world expectations of the service that they receive. You will of course be fully supported by the Spirit Lab tutor to give you the needed confidence.Read More
Professional Bartenders are Formed in Professional Bartending School
To become the professional bartender that you are aiming for you will not only need to have a repertoire of classic and modern cocktail recipes you will need to understand the reasons why certain drinks are mixed in certain ways. Without this fundamental understanding then it will not matter how many recipes you memorise. Perfect mixology comes from a full understanding of how different drinks interact with each other and which processes to use to present cocktails that’ll go with a bang. But being highly skilled is not enough. Bartenders do not get to the top levels by simply mixing drinks perfectly, although that is of course a key element. You also need to be able to do it in style, adding the special flamboyance that will wow customers, amaze your venue hosts, and ultimately earn you the big tips. Spirit Lab London will help you discover how to apply your natural charm and style into the drinks that you are mixing. We will give you all the skills that you will need on your journey to become the professional bartender you’ve always dreamed of.
Experience in a Real Live Cocktail Bar
It’s can feel very different trying to apply all that you’ve learned into a real live cocktail bar environment but at Spirit Lab London that is exactly what you’ll be doing. Being able to mix a drink slowly in your kitchen and being able to do it live in a bar amongst the noise, the chaos, the demands of customers queueing up and other bartenders swooping past you can feel very different. Unlike many bartender schools out there that will keep you in a sterile environment Spirit Lab London feel it’s completely necessary for you to experience life behind the bar in our real live cocktail bar. With the experience of our tutors to hand you’ll not feel the same level of pressure as when you get your first proper bar gig. We will help you to understand how to use the knowledge you’ve learned in our bar school in this real live enviroment. We don’t believe that it’s possible to teach the things you’ll learn in our bar within a classroom setting. When you complete one of our courses we want the certificate to really show what you are capable of and reflect positively on Spirit Lab London Professional Bartending School.
