If you are looking for a professional environment to learn, and some of the greatest people you will ever come across, look no further! Rachel, Larry, and Theresa are knowledgeable, take the time to ensure you learn the material, and are flexible in understanding! There is no cookie cutter approach here, true live learning experience, whether you have some bartending experience, or just getting started. I could not be more pleased with my experience, and it far exceeded my expectations!

This course is fast paced, and extremely informative. Teaching you the tips, tricks, and basics of bar tending you wouldn't be able to get just by working on the job. The instructors settled fears on things that could go wrong, as well as giving helpful advice from their personal experiences. They taught me not to sweat the small stuff, and to just be confident in yourself. I hope to be back to complete the full 2 week course. The fact that they help with job placement, and give you time to practice at the bar is huge.
So far i have already been making mix drinks at home, and have even been learning new ones. This course was amazing and i would take it again in a heartbeat.

Keep up the great work, we need more educators like you!

Going to the Premier Mixology Course was the best thing I did. Prior to attending the class I thought I was pretty good, then I quickly realized the "I didn't know what I didn't know!" The instructor was great and walked us through every drink and then insured we had plenty of practice time to perfect our skills. I graduated yesterday and the School's Job Placement helped me get job working a private party tomorrow while I continue to use their site to find the best place to work on a part time basis... Over 60 Job listing around town.

Wrapped up the full two week course. What a great environment and continuing education resource. The SA Bartending school does it right with a very friendly staff that is willing to work with and adjust to all learning levels.

As a business owner, I intend to make this my goto resource for all my Bartending staffing and education.

I moved to San Antonio recently and decided to to finally pursue bartending. PBSA was an amazing place to start. The staff members are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The class is well priced and you surprise yourself by how much you learn in two weeks. Theresa as my instructor and she was a spot on. The job placement is also great and helped me secure a job within a week. It's two weeks! Take the time, put some effort in and go out their and interview and you should have no problem in becoming a bartender.

PBSA in San Antonio is excellent in training, job placement, and support. I graduated as a mechanical engineer, worked for a while as an engineer then moved on to find a better work environment. Completed the two-week mixology course and got a job within a few days at a bar in a top restaurant. I'm going to start in a few days and really excited to have a job where I can meet new people every day! Thanks to all the staff at bar tending school of San Antonio!

Wow, Amazing, Incrediable, Outstanding, are words that fall just a little bit short about this school. They are just everything you are looking for in school. From the actual classroom being an actual bar scence, the useful extra information you learn that you wouldn't get anywhere else! This school will help you learn and expand your knowledge about mixology!! The instructors will work with you, they allow you to come back to the school anytime you want to practice your mixology skills! Not to mention they will WORK WTIH YOU to find the job that you absolutely fits YOU! I believe that if you are really interested in exploring this school I suggest you contact Rachel at the school and she'll give you the tour just like me! Great School!!
2016-07-18, 22:50
I had the most amazing experience. The staff are so welcoming and they will help you through each step of the way, even when it comes to finding a job. This was a great choice for me and my fiance! Thanks again!
2016-06-27, 11:45
Awesome school!!! Everyone is awesome, they want to see you succeed
and go above and beyond to make sure you do. From teaching you what you need to know to their job placement assistance and even after (you can come back to get practice even after your done!!). It was an awesome experience and I'd recommend this school to any body interested in learning!!!!
2016-05-28, 12:14
I took the two week course a couple of years ago, and to this day still know I can call Rachel and get top notch help when it comes to any training questions or looking around for a new job.

The true value of PBSA San Antonio is in the long term commitment the team has toward their customers/trainees. Thanks guys.

I walked into this school thinking I was just learning a new way to make some extra money, instead I actually walked away feeling I had obtained a New Skill that could enable me to do much more. AND the icing on the cake is the incredible staff. They ALL are awesome! Highly Recommend!!!
2016-03-01, 09:24

Everyone was so welcoming, helpful, informative, extremely nice and funny! The course itself was so much fun. I love the class room because it feels like you're in an actual bar. Two weeks ago, I knew nothing about bartending, but now I feel extremely comfortable about being behind a bar, and I love being versatile in making different types of drinks. Even when i felt nervous and afraid, the energy, assistance, and support from my instructors calmed me down. They kept telling me I had nothing to worry about because as long as I showed my dedication, they would math it 100%. I am so glad that I took this course!
2015-11-29, 13:14
This bartending school is extremely informative and beneficial. You not only learn how to be successful in specific venues, but rather multiple ones. I would recommend to ANYONE wanting to be a bartender to go to attend this bartending school!

I highly recommend attending this school! Staff was very helpful and I couldn't believe how much I learned in just one week. I had no previous experience of bartending and felt very confident in finding a job with the skills I learned after completing the one week course.
Kayla Mendez
2015-07-22, 16:02
The school and staff are absolutely amazing, helpful, comedic, and highly highly professional! I came into the class knowing nothing of bartending and I left ready to take on the world!! Well, the world of bartending, that is. I've made some lasting friendships through the school, and gained so much knowledge, just within 2 weeks! The facilities are also fantastic. Working behind a real, fully stocked bar in a supportive and encouraging environment is truly the only way to prepare for the real deal. Attending the school is one of best investments you'll make in a while. Don't miss out on the opportunity, it's worth every penny!
2015-07-18, 22:22
I just finished the two week course and I am happy to report that I learned a lot. It was at an even pace and you will learn a lot so that you are able to know information when you are working as a bartender. Not only do the teachers provide the information but you are able to do some hands on training in a real bar set up. All teachers are knowledgeable with information and are able to answer any and all questions that you may have. I would really, really recommend taking the 2 week course and you won't regret it
Andy Magee
2015-05-10, 20:13
Hands down the most exhilarating course ever! Not only am I the life of the party, I now acquire a skill that can be used worldwide. Two thumbs up to the staff for making my experience a memorable one...YOU GUYS ROCK!! Last but not least, for those of you reading this, take the time to visit the school, ask questions and start a new chapter. MIXOLOGY = PRICELESS
2015-04-17, 11:20
I found this school and the teachers absolutely terrific. They were all professional bartenders, showing you exactly what to do and how to do it. You get to practice behind a real bar which helps beyond words. They were all extremely supportive and I can't say thank you enough for teaching me this skill. It's a great school where you can go and learn to be an actual bartender, the lessons interactive and the book easy to understand.
Donna Belcher
2015-04-16, 13:11
All I have to say is Wow. Having no experience except service and bar back, this course is definitely worth every penny and I am confident I will be earning it back plus some. The instructors are professionals and not only is the book easy to understand, there are drinks that are every day common ordered drinks that you get behind a bar and learn to make. Two weeks to become a bartender and they don't want you to fail, they let you know where the mistake is made and show you how to correct it. By the end, your confidence is there. I've been teased by friends about going to school, but honestly, I can't wait to get started in this new career and I've bragged about school and this turn in my life. They are top of the line, hold each of their students to a high standard and expect the best from everyone. I can't even begin to express my thanks for the new skills learned and will definitely live up to the name they want us to have.
Daniel Matthews

You will be surprised and impressed at how professional this experience is and how much information you can get out of a two week course. If you want to go straight to the bottom line, the staff is so tied into the business community they have dozens of companies working with them for their graduates. I was hired before I even finished the two week course, and I had no previous bartending experience!! Honestly I keep running into bartenders that talk bad about going to school for it, and I keep identifying mistake after mistake in the bartenders I see who just learned “on the job.” The staff is very skilled, and the information they deliver is science and industry based; then they hold you to a high standard. The cost and time invested is very low compared to other careers, I am absolutely thrilled I chose to attend this course and I’ve been hired by multiple companies since I graduated, working every week since. Thank you SA-BS!!
2015-03-16, 20:28
I attended the two week course, with no prior experience in bartending. The instructors are amazing, certainly there to help you succeed and make it look easy. Not to mention the method used to help recall the ingredients in the drinks, work extremely well. So if you are willing to put in the time and effort, I would certainly recommend you start here.

this is a amazing school that goes over everything needing to know I thought I knew what being a bartender was about but I was wrong and I came out of this school understanding and completely ready to take on anything

Take this course! Its two weeks of your life that you will not regret. If you like to have fun, learn about new drinks and mixing options, and want to make decent $$, then this place is defiantly worth it. The instructors are friendly and very informative. Jackie is hilariously sarcastic (in a good way) and it just made my time at the school fly by. The perks you get are awesome! Where else are you going to get unlimited practice time, job placement, and people who honestly want to help you succeed? That’s right, nowhere!!! I will not hesitate to recommend PBSA to everyone I know (and those I don’t)!

I thoroughly enjoyed both the atmosphere and the teaching style. The instructors take the time to make sure you understand what was covered in each lesson. It's even better when you're able to have one-on-one face time if you take the accelerated course. This course was definitely a good decision and I can't wait to put the skills I learned to use.

2014-12-29, 20:36
I highly recommend taking this course if you want to work in the bartending industry. All the staff has so much knowledge and experience, that they are willing to share. Each day that I went to class I had a lot of fun and the instructors had great personalities, which made each lesson exciting. Once I graduated it meant so much how helpful and thorough they were with helping me find a job that suits my schedule and personality, I look forward to keeping in touch with them as I progress in my bartending career.

I can't even begin to say how amazing the staff is at SABS. I am new to not only the city but also the state. This was a course I wasn't to take to learn the city and meet new people. I found that just by attending SABS. This is a great place to enjoy learning as you meet other students on your same level. This is an experience I will hold onto for a long time. I can't wait to start my new journey as a Mixologist.

I went to PBSA and took the two week course, and it was an amazing experience. The instructors we're amazing and really work with you and want you to succeed. I truly believe after attending this school you'll be able to easily compete with any one that's been in the bartending feild for years.
Veronica Rolland
2014-08-04, 18:51
I took the 2 week course so I wouldn't have to work as a server or barback for months to land a bartending job. Within my first 2 days I was making drinks more complex than most bartenders I've seen, and with little to no difficulty. By the end of the 2 weeks I could easily remember everything from simple recipes for highballs to intricate tall drinks without any hesitation. The staff is so helpful and fun to be around, Theresa was an awesome teacher! Every student gets individualized attention and no one is left out, no matter where they are in knowledge or learning speed. I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in bartending, whether professional or just to show off to their friends. Lots of fun and a great atmosphere!
Mell Miranda
2014-08-01, 13:49
I'm so thrilled I took the course at the SA Bartending school. I learned so much in such a short period of time and the instructors are AWESOME!! They made learning everything so easy and fun. Theresa was extremely down to earth and I felt as if I was taking a class with one of my best friends. I feel I am overly prepared to step out in the "real world" and start bartending. I can't thank the staff enough for such a wonderful learning experience in a phenomenal learning environment. I would HIGHLY recommend everyone who is even remotely interested in becoming a bartender to take this course.

The bartending school was fun and challenging at the same time.Our instructor Larry filled us with so much knowledge and personal on the job experience.Most of the time I felt like I was with my uncle helping me every step of the way. I learned so much. Very high level of serving and mixing technique. I loved it and will miss learning and laughing with Larry. Great experience for anyone.

This school was absolutely the best decision I could have made. They taught me not only recipes and mixing methods but how to be a great bartender. I learned how to interact with customers and small tips to increase income. After you graduate they don't just drop you they help you find a job at all points of your life. At this moment I have interviews in line at some amazing places all thanks to this school.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC☆★☆★☆!!! That's what I have to say about the staff and this school. If u are thinking about bartending wether you have been one for years or totally brand-new to it this is where u gotta be to learn CORRECTLY!!! I recently graduated from the premier mixology course and I must say it was the best thing I could've done for myself. They have lived up to EVERY single thing they said they would. It's a real world atmosphere so you have no surprises going into the work place. So looking forward to making the real money now!!!

Saying goodbye was so bittersweet, but I know that their teachings will assist me in my ventures out into the world of bartending. Upon entering the class room, I could tell I was going to have an awesome experience learning and practicing here. The program is first rate as much as its facilities, and not to mention the staff. Helpful and professional individuals who are always willing to assist and answer any questions. Having never worked behind the bar, PBSA prepared me and developed my confidence for what the real world will throw at me. Thanks Theresa, Jackie, Larry and Rachel!

I have a job with Perico's Mexican Restaurant as a bartender and I do private parties on the side. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is trying to make some good money. I am also a college student and the class times work perfectly with my schedule. I couldn't be any happier with the school.

I wanted to say thank you to PBSA!!! I have a new career that I am so excited about. I do not drink -- I did not even know what a bottle of Jack Daniels looked like. The instructor Theresa made me feel so at ease in what I was learning and she gave me the self esteem to understand all the ins and outs of bartending.

I am so happy that I have a new career path that I enjoy. Thanks again PBSA!

After making the decision to return to work after being a stay at home mom for 8 years, I wanted to pursue my desire to learn mixology & make a career out of it. Through research & school interviews I decided if you want to be the best then you should learn from the best, after all you get what you pay for, right? Well they didn't disappoint! I had absolutely no previous bar experience nor drink knowledge, however I received a wealth of knowledge & plenty of practice time to equip me with the confidence to move forward. When they say they are there to help you succeed. ..they absolutely are. Phones are answered, text messages are returned & time to chat is available. Invest in yourself & they will help you gain a hefty return.

I strongly recommend PBSA to anyone considering going into bartending. I have already recommended it to a few friends of mine. The staff is professional and friendly. In addition to teaching you proper bartending they offer personal experiences that are priceless. When you are finished with the course they also offer job placement and tips on finding the right job for you. The opportunity is too great to pass up!

I strongly encourage anyone that is interested in becoming a Bartender to take this Mixology course at PBSA. The staff gives you the professional aspects of bartending and give you a family welcoming. They go out of their way to help. I've met other alumni that have graduated from PBSA and they had no regrets! The staff are great team players! Learn, have fun and enjoy the great rewards. Thank You PBSA!

I am a full time student and I needed to find a place to work that I would not only love but that I would be able to make money to live off of and the only thing I could think of was bartending. I just finished PBSA Premier Mixology course with Jackie and to say the least she was AMAZING the whole staff was. They were very helpful and walked me through every step. Not only do they train their students to be good bartenders they teach them everything they will need to know to be a knowledgeable mixologist. The education I received at PBSA will guarantee me big tips. I am now on my way to finding a job that I will love and it is all thanks to PBSA. They treat everyone with respect and we all had so much fun during class. I would recommend PBSA to anyone and everyone for the friendliness and great work ethics they all succeed on having.

When I decided to go PBSA for their Premier Mixology course, I was met with a great deal of criticism by friends, family, and acquaintances alike. "You don't need to go to school to be a bartender" and, "you won't get hired as a bartender after going there" were common remarks. Through all the negativity, I held onto the belief that PBSA would be my fast-track to becoming not just any bartender, but one with the confidence and knowledge necessary for success. And, they did just that; their professional, fun, and easy method of procedure provided me not only with the fine skills of this craft, but with a career. As a student of PBSA, my hopes and expectations were consistently exceeded, and I strongly encourage anyone interested in bartending to go nowhere else but to this excellent establishment!

Honorably Discharged from the military and had trouble finding a job as soon as I got out. I had no experience as a Bartender or any knowledge of serving beverages such as mixed drinks. After completing the fifty(50) hour course of Premier Mixology, I now have a good foundation and confidence to bartend. The school"s job placement program is extremely helpful and a must. I give this school and the professional Staff a 5 out of 5 star review.
2013-11-04, 15:51
The class was awesome! Everyday brought something new and valuable to the table. The instructors are great and they teach you everything you need to know to be a mixologist. I am very glad that I took this course I had a great experience.

I recently graduated from this school and had a blast each day. The staff breaks down everything and makes the material easy to learn. Having this school on my resume put me above other candidates and I was hired within 2-3 weeks of job hunting. I would recommend to anyone who wants an edge as a bartender. 10 out of 10

I am so glad I signed up for the course, they are such an amazing staff that is ready to help you become a mixologist. They work with you and have a sense of humor, it didn't feel like school at all!! I got to learn so much in such a short amount of time and for a small price.
Great school, staff, and experience!!

This class was amazing! I had an awesome and enthusiastic teacher who knew what she was talking about! At first I was worried but the teachers take it step by step and explain everything you need to know. It's amazing how it only takes two weeks for the mixology class and you learn so much!

I absolutely loved this school!!
I went in knowing nothing about bartending. and by the end of the 2 wks I learned so much!
instructors are awesome and they work with you. I had so much fun, great experience!
2013-08-03, 13:37
If you want to guarantee that you will get a job in bartending,attend this school! The instructors are knowledgeable and make the classes fun! The book you receive is one you will refer to after you start working. The hands on learning in the bar is valuable and will help you get comfortable serving drinks. I wish I had signed up for the school when I first thought about it a couple of years ago!
2013-08-03, 13:28
I am so thankful I signed up for the school. You will learn by the best to be the best professional in this field. The instructors are knowledgeable and make the class fun! There also is a full bar available to you to practice and become comfortable when you start working. The textbook that you receive is one others will want from you! I previously had been told not to attend the school,what a mistake! I wished I had signed up when I first thought about it. I will continue to keep in touch with the school for job placement or to buy supplies (they also sell bar kits and all supplies you need). The best bartenders in our city are from this school!

After some research I came to the conclusion that Professional Bartending School of San Antonio was the school with the higher standard in the city, and it showed the first day I was there. During my two week, 50hour course I was very impressed by the professionalism and thoroughness of the school. You will be hard pressed to find better instructors anywhere. I graduated feeling very confident about going into my first job. I would recommend anyone who is serious about becoming a bartender to enroll at PBSSA. July 2013

What an amazing two weeks ! The school is worth every cent! The instructors are amazing and really care about making sure you have all the tools to be successful outside of the school. The unlimited bar time is awesome. The text book is incredibly in depth but simple when it comes to studying. I am so happy that i took this class as i went from knowing not much about being behind the bar to having a wealth of knowledge and being completely confident in my bartending abilities! Do yourself a favor and take the class you wont be disappointed!

This school is a must!!! Regardless of the program you take you will receive a lot of useful information and tips that will benefit you later on in your bartending career. Rachel is so welcoming and very helpful. Russel was my instructor for the bartending course and was so helpful and was a really good teacher. Explained everything very thoroughly and was very outgoing, he would let give us "pearls" as he would call it, on how to become a better bartender. Theresa was so nice and really helped with the job placement and any question that I had or worry she would have the answer to. I am glad I took the course and was well worth it!!!

this course was awesome. the instructors were very knowledgeable, fun, and very enthusiastic. everyday in class was an absolute blast. this school really has their stuff together and lesson planning is on point. I came out of PBSA feeling like a pro. I even went to a few bars since and all you can do is watch the bar tenders and critique how they do things and know that you would do an even better job. Also when you have to tell the other bar tender how to make a drink for you, you know that this training was worth it. Im gonna miss everyone there. best learning experience ever.
2013-04-28, 13:47
First and Foremost, You have to take this class just to see how fun it is. The staff at PBSA make learning a new skill trait fun and exciting. The trainers Theresa and Russ are top notch instructors and better people. They make you feel very welcome and are always there to help. I cannot wait to put all the stuff I learned at PBSA to work! Thanks again. It was awesome!

I am a recent graduate of PBSA and I have nothing but great things to say about the school, instructors, and the owner, Rachel. She was completely professional and at the same time, very accommodating of my schedule, and sweet. She really goes the extra mile for the students!! Russ and Theresa were amazing instructors. It was incredibly helpful to be able to watch them create the drinks, follow along in the textbook, and then practice them each myself. I was timid when I began the course but upon completion I actually felt confident about my new skill set. I am happy that I decided to attend PBSA and can't wait to get behind the bar!!!

I have made my own drinks at home for years, but the staff at PBSA gave me speed and confidence to try to work making others drinks. With a little help from the job placement coordinator, I am starting this week. Failure is not an option, The staff at PBSA will help you ensure success.

PBSA is a superb school. You learn a great deal of drinks in a short amount of time. The "bar" atmosphere/classroom made the experience very natural when practicing how to make drinks. More importantly, the owner Rachel was so patient and helpful during the enrollment process. Their teaching staff is friendly and always willing to help you along the way. I would definitely recommend at least taking a tour of the school and talking with Rachel if you are thinking about Bartending.

I completed my two week class and it was AWESOME. The two instructors, Russ and Larry were very informative, fun and honest about their experiences in the bartending world. You will learn more than you ever thought you could have known in bartending. Rachel and Theresa are the BOMB, they will hook you up with the path to get it all started. Awesome Job Ladies! I recommend this course to anyone who wants to try the bartending scene. It will be worth it.

Very fun and welcoming. I came in with no experience and was nervous, but the atmosphere and patience of the instructors really helped and turned it into a fun and easy learning environment.

I just finished the Premier/Mixology course, and I am impressed. I went for the free tour and was hooked. The school offers a real life simulation of a bar, and guides you step by step on how to become a professional bartender. I would highly recommend PBSA because of the friendly staff, clean environment, and methods of teaching.

San Antonio Bartending School was awesome. The Instructors are not only nice but also real professionals. I liked the techniques they used for memorization and i really enjoyed the open bar time. I will definitely recommend this school to all of my friends. At first bartending seemed hard but now its fun and addicting. On top of that they have their very own published text book that has EVERYTHING there is to know about bartending/mixology. I enjoyed every part of it and would do it again. Thanks PBSA

I just graduated from the Premier/Mixology course, and I have to say that the two weeks spent at PBSA were the most fun in a learning environment that I've had in quite some time. Rachel, Theresa, Larry and Russ were great to be around, and always there to answer any question I had. I'd say that if you're thinking about becoming a bartender/mixologist, this is definitely the place togo......Thanks guys!!!
2012-10-19, 13:34
PBSA was a wonderful experience for me! Before signing up for the class, I was a little skeptical, but quickly realized the school was the real deal. The class was a challenge, but most of all, applicable to the real world. I feel very prepared to step into any bartending position. Theresa was an awesome instructor who truly had her students interest at heart. If you're looking to get into bartending, I would highly recommend PBSA to start. I graduated on a Friday and was called to work an event the following weekend. I know that I will never regret my decision and hope to continue to work with PBSA in the future.

I am a recent graduate of PBSA and I have to say that this was the best 2 weeks I've had in a long time.

From the moment I walked in and talked with Rachel, she made me feel at ease and that she had confidence in me. Theresa was a hoot!!!! She is a GREAT instructor. She made you laugh and enjoy what you are doing. She was extremely helpful when it comes to getting you ready for testing....but it's up to you to study. They don't just send you out the door when your done with your course, they help you to find the jobs that are out there.

I work a full time job, so being able to attend the evening classes was very helpful. There are all walks of life in each of the class. You get to meet a lot of people and make some new friends along the way.

I can't tell you enough that this is an opportunity you don't want to pass up. Thank you again to Rachel and Theresa!!!!!

San Antonio Bartending School was i great and useful investment. I became a certified "Mixologist" i had fun while doing it and the learning process was easy. But when it get's even better it's when you train behind the counter, believing your a real bartender when its just been the very first time handling bottles! Do yourself a favor and visit them for information.

I could think of no better way to learn how to bartend than PBSA. The instructors there are amazing and do everything they can to get you to succeed. In two short weeks I went from someone who could barely tell the difference between vodka and scotch to a confident and knowledgeable mixologist ready to become part of the bartending industry. The small classes offer hands on instruction along with a fun and casual environment to learn. I would recommend anyone who wants to be a serious bartender to PBSA!!!

PBSA San Antonio is awesome!" With little experience behind the bar they will teach you everything you need to know at a well paced speed that is perfect for people just starting. They gave me the skills to move up from barback to bartender to manager within a few months. The instructors are amazing and will do whatever they can to help you through. I have already and will again refer friends to this school.

PBSA IS AWESOME!!!!! WHY? I'm going to tell you why! I looked into the course with Next to Zero knowledge of being A Bartender/Mixologist( let alone knowing what a Mixologist even was!) Now, after taking thier Premier/Mixology course, I have the Knowledge and Confidence to walk behind ANY Bar and know that my performance will be SUPERB! But that's not all folks!! LOL! Seriously, The Team at PBSA taught me that it's not just pouring drinks, It's an art form that you can take pride in knowing what your talking about AND Having fun while being the BEST. Everything that you need to know and tools that you will need,YOU WILL get here at PBSA, With Job Placement Nationwide! Yes that's right NATIONWIDE!!! I Truly want to Thank Rachel, Sara, and Theresa for The Knowledge, Experiences, and Tips that they Shared to help make me The Mixologist I am today!!!

This school is AMAZING! Not only are all of the ladies working there incredibly sweet, they are all there to help you succeed! I was very nervous going to the school because I had NO bartending experience at all, but the day that I graduated I had 2 jobs for private parties and got a job at a local bar less than a week later! It was the best investment I've ever made (and it will pay itself off in less than a month for me!!) They live up to the school's name... PROFESSIONAL!

PBSA is a great environment to learn how to bartend. The teaching staff allows you to have fun as you learn the basic fundamentals of bartending. There was never a dull moment with my instructor Theresa. I was intrigued on the personal experinces the staff had to share with their students. Their personal insight painted a vivid picture of my future as a bartender. I can honestly say that I learned a lot from this experience. If you're looking to learn and have fun at the same time then PBSA is the place for you!
2012-04-06, 09:16
If you're looking for the best way to break into bartending, Pro Bartending School of S.A. is where its at. The instructors truely set you up for success; not just through excellent instruction, but by giving you career insight that you just won't find anywhere else. Within a few short weeks, I received everything I needed to gain an edge on the competition. Sara and Theresa know the industry inside and out...take advantage of it! The flexibility, professionalism, and personality of the team make it an ideal educational opportunity for ANYONE. My recommendation...if you want to break into bartending, the proven method and BEST WAY to go is P B S of S A!

PBSA was a great experience. The knowledge and professionalism of the staff and instructors is evident from the moment you walk into the school. They all want to make sure you leave there with the knowledge and tools you need to be successful. In addition, PBSA was able to allow me to schedule classes around my work schedule. I left the school knowing I had gained knowledge that went beyond that of the average bartender, they cover every aspect of the business and you leave there with skills you didn't realize you needed to give you that edge. I would defintely recommend PBSA to anyone looking to get into bartending on a professional level.

A month ago I inquired with PBSA to obtain information regarding there school and how there job placement works. The enrollment process was very easy to understand and the payment options were a plus. They assisted me with different class schedule opportunities and helped me understand what the difference was between being just a bartender and a mixologist. The classes are very small in ratio, which provide more of a 1 on 1 teaching experience. PBSA also had the class for TABC included in there class schedule for you to be certified before you graduate. Also knowing that they offer job placement was a bonus, and to know if I move they are nationwide is great. Thank you Sarah, Theresa and Rachel for the PBSA experience.

There is endless opportunities with the knowledge gained by taking this course and the knowledge gained is something that you can have and use for the rest of your life. Much thanks to PBSA for taking the time to share and spread their knowledge of investment I have made yet.

Oh and a big shout out to my instructor Thersea for making the class worth while and lots of fun just how it should be :) much thanks.

Professional Bar tending school is one of the best decision I have made. The money I paid to enroll into the school; I made that back in two weeks.(PBSA)

The school teaches a variety of techniques that will help your money intake. And the Staff is AWESOME..this school is definitely a opportunity that should be

taken advantage of and its literally a recession proof trade . With the job Placement program its almost a guarantee that you will start working asap a little after

you graduate.

I recently graduated from PBSA and would like to recommend to anyone who is thinking about a career change or another income stream in the Bartending field not to hesitate to attend this school. PBSA covers all aspects of the bartending field from becoming professionally trained mixologist, intense practice and testing to job placement assistance. The atmosphere is educational, structured and the staff is 100% professional, it will be an investment well spent.

I have nothing but praise for the Professional Bartending School of San Antonio. The staff at the school were very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable! Even after graduation the staff is still willing to assist me in any way they can. I would tell anyone young, old, experienced or not to go to this school, it will leave you with a sense that you are ready, willing and able to achieve all my goals in the bartending world. I feel confident and well informed!

I recently graduated from the school and couldnt be happier. It was intense but the staff are committed to helping you succeed. The atmosphere was relaxed and there was alot of hands on training. They also assist with job placement which is awesome. Even after graduating they continue to have an active interest in your progress and make themselves available for any assistance you may need. This is one of the best investments I have ever made. Thanks to the staff at PBSA. You are successful because you help your students to succeed.

I just graduated from PBSA and I can see that it was a great invesment in my future, the Premier Mixology course shows you more than just drink recipes and to put it together. They teach how to set up and take down your area, to the right glass to use, and they teach good memory techinques also. The staff is really nice and easy to get along with, they help with any questions and help with job placement once you graduate and having them in my resume has really helped. Thank you Theresa, Sara, and Rachel y'all are awesome!

I just recently graduated from the Premier Mixology Course at PBSA and I highly recommend anyone to take this course. I had attended an ABC Bartending School in San Diego, CA a few years ago and it had no comparison to PBSA. At PBSA the minute you walk in to even just tour the place, you are welcomed with kindness and open arms like you are already family, most places don't even do that. PBSA taught you so much more about Alcohol in general, i.e. How its brewed, the temperature to store/pour it at. I had no idea that there were actually certain ways to do that. It also teaches you alot in the 2 weeks that you are there. The staff was Great! While you are practicing behind the bar, they had the music blasting so that it actually felt like you were at a bar. This is a fast paced course with a lot of information to cover, however, just have fun with it and you will do just fine. Thank you so much Theresa, Sara, and Rachel you guys are Awesome! I am proud to have spent my money on such a great school and I hope do go out there and do great things with everything that I have learned and will be sure to keep in touch with you guys!

I just finished the Premier Mixology course at PBSA and I feel completely prepared to bartend anywhere, from hotels to nightclubs, even private parties. As a full time student the 2 week course was ideal, and flew by. Not only did I learn alot, the classes were fun too and the classroom is basically like being in a bar. I was so scared I wouldn't do well the first day, but Theresa was a great instructor. Thank you Theresa, Sara, and Rachel for all of your help. :)

I just graduated from mixology school and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become a great bartender. Bartending is not just opening a beer or pouring liqour and coke in a glass. It's knowing what flavors and what types of alcohol go well together to make a great drink. At the san antonio school I learned everything from the proper way to pour a delicious lager, to making scrumptious mix drinks to making tasty shooters. You also learn how liquor and beer are made and what makes each unique. For example, did you know that grenadine is made from pomegranite not cherry?? OR that whiskey made with 51% corn is called bourban and whiskey made with 51% rye is called rye whiskey?? OR the difference between sparkling wine and champagnes is all champagnes must come from the champagne region of France, otherwise it is considered a sparkling wine??
So let me ask you want to be a great bartender or not? If your answer is yes (and it definently should be) you need to get enrolled right now!! You will learn everything you need to know to become a great bartender and start showing me the money!!!
Also, on top of all this the instructors are AWESOME and they will make your learning experience a once in a lifetime event.
Thanks Theresa, Sara and Rachel ya'll rockd my socks off, I cant wait to get started!!!:))
