A letter from TSOB:

A Warning About "Online Bartending Courses"

Dear Prospective Student, 

Over the past few years, many different "Online Bartending Courses" have started appearing on the internet, with names like, and

Each one of these programs claims to be owned by "true" bartending schools. They refer to these as "brick and mortar schools." It appears that both online and "true" schools are profitable for them. I have been successfully training and placing bartenders since 1987 (over 25 years experience) so I figured it was in my school's best interest to investigate "Online Bartending Courses." I wanted to see if we might be missing the boat, since training bartenders is what I do for a living. The final conclusion was...There is no way you can learn to bartend on-line!

Plain and simple, this is a very hands-on job and it must be learned that way. If "Online Bartending Courses" really worked, we would be the leaders in it.

Consider all the costs we could save by only offering Bartending Classes Online:

  • Rent on our 9 schools across Texas and Oklahoma
  • Payroll for the instructors, job placement directors and school staff
  • Telephone lines
  • State licensing fee
  • Bar equipment

Ask yourself this question. Can you learn how to drive a car online without behind-the-wheel experience? 

Remember that bar owners and managers call our schools seeking freshly-trained bartenders. Our job placement percentages speak for themselves. If you are going to bartend in Texas then give us a shout via the "Request Info" form at the side of the page. We would love for you to come by the school and watch us work with our students. I know if you choose to train with us, you'll be VERY pleased with the end result.
