If you want the BEST in affordable bartender training and mixing drinks check this out..
I graduated a few months ago and they placed me at the Raddison Hotel. I'm making mega bucks and the job is awesome. They also teach FLAIR which I signed up for and TIPS which I just completed.
These guys are down to earth, honest and give you MORE than your monies worth. BTW, I live in Brooklyn and took the saturday course. The others in the city are way too expoensive. Basically I would have paid hundreds for a lesser course than what I got. It ain't cheap running a place in NYC. Check them out in New Rochelle, only a train ride away, YOU'LL BE MORE THAN HAPPY!!
Hope this helps
