The Smithsonian thinks that we are re-entering a GOLDEN AGE of AMERICAN BARTENDING http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/are-we-re-entering-golden-age-american-bartending-180954474/?no-ist
At the turn of the century, America was a hotbed of cocktail innovation—then Prohibition happened. Now, bartenders are trying to reclaim the golden age.

We who like to mix drinks at home do it for many reasons: First, it's cheaper than drinking out. Second, it's fun to mix your own drinks at home. Third, it's even more fun to mix drinks for other people at home. Any self-respecting home bartender should have a mental Rolodex Excel spreadsheet of favorite classic cocktail recipes. Today, I present the 25 essential drinks that I think everyone should be able to make.

A decade into the craft cocktail movement, New York City bartenders are ready to lighten up and have some fun with some retro drinks.

It doesn't have to be St. Patty's Day to mix up some Guinness-based #cocktails http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2015/03/17/how-to-mix-up-guinness-cocktails-for-st-patrick-day/
For purists, a perfectly poured pint of Guinness is as good as it gets as far as St. Patrick's Day boozing goes.

Have you ever heard of the Museum of American Cocktail? http://www.nola.com/drink/index.ssf/2015/03/bartender_dale_degroff_museum.html
Each year, the James Beard Foundation adds new names to its list of Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America. This year, one of the five inductees is Dale DeGroff, the legendary bartender and president of New Orleans' Museum of the American Cocktail.

Today, bartenders need to know a lot more than how to pull a tap handle. With the explosion in craft beers, they need to know subtle differences in style, ingredients and taste.

Here's something you don't hear every day...a #bar owner was FINED after playing copyrighted music! http://www.8newsnow.com/story/28351544/bar-owner-fined-over-copyrighted-music
Some local bars are receiving hefty fines from music publishing companies. The companies are cracking down on businesses that play copyrighted music without paying licensing fees.

Easy Breezy! I was SO nervous to learn a new skill, especially since I did administrative work for so many years. However, I must say that Howard and Joe are primo instructors! I felt completely confident and comfortable with what I have learned to land myself a great bartending job at an upscale restaurant in the city. I could not be happier with the training and job placement help that I received here! I Amos glad I did my homework and chose the RIGHT place.

I WENT FOR THE "FREE SESSION" THEY MENTIONED AND GOT HARASSED VERBALLY. THEY WILL NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER AND WHEN YOU GET THERE THEY WILL ACT REALLY NICE AT FIRST AND THEN NOT LET YOU LEAVE THE ROOM UNTIL YOU SIGN THEIR CONTRACT. AND THEY WON'T TELL YOU THIS OVER THE PHONE, BUT THE CLASS IS $900.00!! UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO FIGHT AND I MEAN FIGHTTTTT, DO NOT GO DOWN TO THIS SCHOOL! THEY WILL HARASS YOU! ALL THESE POSITIVE POSTS ON HERE ARE BULL THAT WAS POSTED BY THEIR PEOPLE. SO TRUST ME, FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL!! DO NOT GO TO THIS ONE!

I contacted ABS for information about their courses. After many days of research and asking around, I decided to attend to NY Bartending School. Even after I told ABS I wasnt gonna attend they still kept on calling and being rude over the phone. NY Bartending School has a better track record. Be very careful, do ur research, after all is ur money.

I agree with TheTruthHurts...I paid $895 and everything else is right on the money. The response from the owner is 100 percent full of crap and so is the whole school. AVOID!

The classes themselves are worth while in the sense that you do learn numerous drink recipes as well as tricks for improving your speed. My instructor was a nice and knowledgeable guy and obviously had experience in bartending. However, and this was the most important part, I went to this school because I believed what they told me about their ability to place me in a bartending job immediately. This was a complete lie. Do not be fooled. These people will not get you a job. Obviously being in business for 40 some odd years, they have had some students here and there who successfully land jobs right out of school, but that is a thing of the past as far as my experience with them goes. They give you a booklet with "tips" on how to get a job and how to respond to want ads for jobs. If you do not already have 2 years+ experience working as a bartender in NYC, do not waste your money.

I went in today for a visit and the receptionist was rude. She said my appointment would be with Anthony. Anthony comes to the waiting area and was just as rude. He made huffing and sighing noises while I filled out the questionaire, so I left a few areas blank in an attempt to move things along for him. When I gave it to him he shook his head and walked away. when he get down the hall he proceeds to tell me how he's upset that I didn't complete the questionaire. So I asked for it and when he gave it to me I walked towards the door. He yells out 'Good, and don't come back'. I'm offended on so many levels. One, because I'm 40+ yo and he's trying to treat me like a child; and two, it's my money I'm spending, no one elses so treat my like you actually want my business. They are very unprofessional,it's a horrible disgrace.

What you pay for is entertainment given the fact that the instructors are funny and charming... I was sketchy about the pressure sale but I needed extra money so I decided to go along with it... But for $1000, I'd do better buying a $30 book on how to bartend... I "studied" there in the summer of '08 and have been looking for a job ever since.. I've gone to the places that they put on there "Bartending Lead" site... But almost everytime I go the owner or manager says, "I'm not looking for anybody" in a "not again" sounding voice.... And I was checking daily and making my rounds daily.. So it's not like I was waiting around for something to happen. I was proactive, and consistent for about 9 months before I realized that I wasted my time, money, and patience. They don't provide the T.I.P.S. certification and I've been asked for that on various occasions. Bottom line: Go somewhere they provide the TIPS cert and give you the price of the class upfront. Because this place is just a hustle and I've been had.

This school sucks. I haven't been and i don't want to for the simple fact that a rep from the school has been calling me for the past week last time she called she said "be sure to call me back!".lol. NO but seriously, they don't want to give a price over the phone, what type of crap is that? Thats all i needed. O and then she wanted my house AND cell phone number after i gave her my cell (bad move, i now know)...for what? ugh...NEXT
