Get Real Life Experience
The best type of learning doesn’t take place by sitting behind a desk for hours. If you’re new to the game, to get the practical skills you need with a context for what you’re learning, much of the bartending training you undertake should happen behind a bar. At The Spirit Lab, our bartenders school provides you with professional, hands-on experience at our fully operational, state of the art bar.
Master Bartending Fundamentals
Bartender schools don’t just hand over an ingredients list and teach you how to make cocktails. Bartending is an art form which combines expert techniques, a calm head and in-depth product knowledge, as well as speed and efficiency. You’ll cover everything from how to shake, throw and roll cocktails to multiple bottle handling, helping you to work fast, serve the perfect drink every time and even entertain clients while doing so.
Deliver Amazing Customer Service
Professional mixology courses won’t just focus on taking your cocktail making skills to the next level but how to provide clientele with an experience they want to have. Nobody wants to sit at a messy bar with inconsistent results, slow staff and long wait times. We’ll show you how to operate different sections effectively, give you one to one support and feel confident of meeting the customer demands thrown at you on a day to day basis.
Even if you’re in a job position where orders are provided by servers, working in a way which benefits the whole team, while running the bar area smoothly and professionally is all part of running a business, giving customers a positive experience. In fact, a bar consultancy may even recommend businesses sign up their staff for a class such as this to transform how they work.
Build Your Confidence
Mastering mixology often comes down to confidence, and this is something you can improve by joining schools for bartending. In our small classes, we don’t just look at incredible mixing and pouring techniques for cocktails but the bartending side of the job too. This includes opening and closing the bar, setting up and the sequence of service so that you can learn how to serve more than one customer at a time without it affecting quality. This helps you to feel more comfortable with the fast rhythm of next level bartending.
Discover the Latest Mixology Techniques
Bartender courses aren’t just something for those with no experience or basic training. You can also find advanced options available, teaching you sophisticated techniques. You’ll stay ahead of the game while advancing your skillset. This includes spectacular drink presentations, ice manipulation and techniques such as smoking of drinks, foams, syrups and garnishes.
