Your foundation matters.  
Build it wisely.

The catch-22 in a competitive bar industry is that you need experience to get hired.
How do I know what I’m doing if I’m never given a chance to do it?

A lot of faking, guessing, and failing goes on behind the bar because folks are simply desperate to get in whatever way they can. This cheats everyone out of a good cocktail. And that is the motive of The Cocktail Camp's Bartender Training Program: to give the curious the time and space to learn, grow, experiment, get messy, fail, build, break, create, and - ultimately - become a damn good bartender. Our curriculum has been carefully constructed, constantly updated, and continuously improved by a team of savvy bar professionals to give you the experience you need to thrive in any bar environment - from a fast-paced club to a craft cocktail hub.  Enrich your knowledge by soaking up ours, hone your skills by learning with purpose, and engage with your peers to build a bright future in the bar community.

So what do you get when you mix all of the above with a whole lot of style?

I recently finished a 3 week course led by Nora and I just loved it! Very in-depth tastings of spirits and liqueurs with great historical anecdotes. Plenty of practice pouring drinks from memory, and though many of our class were there just for fun, those of us attending for real world training got a lot of insider knowledge regarding tough customers and finding employment. Thanks Cocktail Camp!
