My name is Nick Ebersviller & I finished up the bartending program a couple weeks ago. I did my first bartending gig on Saturday night and made enough money to pay for my tuition and even made over $100 on top of that . This was a private wedding ceremony that I lined up through the Minnesota school of bartending. I would recommend this program to anyone. Mark and Phil and the crew offer one on one hands-on training.

I had no experience in bars or restaurants. The way they present all the information and skills really makes it stick. All of the instructors are very helpful! I would highly recommend this one of a kind school!

Amazing place to learn the art of cocktails. You can do it at your own pace. The staff is amazing to deal with and very helpful. They have multiple stations set up just like an actual bar with the rail, back bar and soda gun. If you're looking to be a bartender, I strongly recommend taking their course.

I have used MN School of Bartending for years for many different events. I could not be happier with the company and all the bartenders that we have had. They all show up on time, work hard, and are great with the party guests. The bartenders we used at our last event went above and beyond. Great great company with an awesome staff!

Mark and the Staff are high proficient in teaching you the basics of bartending from how to pour a simple shot all the way to making multiple drinks in proper sequence from memory. Thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and would recommend to anyone who is interested in making money on the side to dedicate a few nights a week to get their certificate. Before I even finished the course, Mark had me working a wedding where I earned half of my tuition back in only 4 hours.....much thanks goes out to Mark and the staff, you guys are great!

The atmosphere, the staff, and the teaching at the Minnesota School of Bartending is great. They prepare you perfectly for a live bar atmosphere. Every teacher is so easy to talk to and helps whenever needed. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in bartending!

I cannot say enough good things about the Minnesota School of Bartending!!! In a word - Outstanding!!!!! Where to begin? Welcoming Atmosphere & Commitment to Learning The owner, Mark, is super friendly and helpful and so is every person that works at the school. They are committed to their mission of ensuring that every student becomes a competent and legitimate bartender that has reliable know how from day one with an employer or at an event. As a result, all personnel at the school are very thorough and vigilant at instructing students and making courteous, yet necessary, corrections to instill knowledge. Repetition is preached and required, which was huge for my learning. Tips on how to pour properly - both with and without shot glasses - was awesome, and catching me if I was using the wrong glass or ingredient for a particular drink kept me honest to learn things the right way. It seemed really steep to learn 80 drinks as a part of the course, but with the school's commitment and methodology they got me dialed in and certified in no time! Reputation The school sources people all over the country because they train people correctly. Considering most bartenders get fired because they cannot pour properly and end up costing the bar or restaurant money, the school mandates repetition on pouring so that students have this down pat. I did not think I would get this down, but with all the tips, observation and repetition, I am now pouring freehand shots and mixes with ease! And as a result of the schools reputation, bars, restaurants, hotels et al are constantly looking to source school graduates to come work for them. Convenience The school has great hours to fit most any schedule, and it is come and go as your schedule allows. Morning, afternoon, evening, Saturdays - it does not matter. Come in when you can, learn at your pace and the school will help you get there. And if you take a break from bartending for a while and want to come back to it later, there are ways to arrange coming in to the school to buff up your skills at that time. Job Placement I touched on this in reputation, but not only does the school's reputation help with finding a job, but the school will actually help you find a place to work. They have a list of places that are looking all across the metro and outside of the metro, and can help direct you to a location that may be a good fit for your personality and geography. Furthermore, the school started placing me with event bartending a week before I graduated the course so I could start getting my feet wet. It was awesome experience that helped me understand the different kind of gigs that I might have and what might be best for me. The school also continues to keep graduates on the books for referrals to events that they are contacted about every week, so opportunities are available through the school. Return On Investment (ROI) If you have any reservations as to whether or not you want to spend the money to take the course - DON'T! I made my expenses back plus profit after my first weekend of working two events - and that was before I even graduated the school! It is well worth the money with a very short break even! Fun The school is just plain fun! Learning all the drinks, the proper glassware, the pours, the ingredients, working with the instructors and the presentations of the drinks just make the whole experience a blast! It was a great way for me to not only learn a valuable skill that I can leverage, but it was also a great way to break up my day and do something different. I cannot recommend the Minnesota School of Bartending enough. Sign up - you will not be disappointed!
