At PBSA, we have found that a career in mixology used to be a full-time career decision. But recently, a lot of our clients are professionals and students looking to supplement their income with a part-time position (one to three times per week), that gets them out of the office or classroom, and lets them meet people, have fun and make money.
One of the questions the public frequently asks, is "What's the difference between a bartender and a mixologist?" We think of the difference between a mixologist and a bartender as being similar to the differences between a chef and a cook. A mixologist has received more extensive training, has greater industry knowledge and usually works in the more upscale food and beverage establishments. In addition, a mixologist usually commands a higher base salary and can expect more tips due to an increased drink repertoire.
Our Professional Mixology course is a 35 hour course which consists of ten 3 1/2-hour bartending classes. Our mixology course can be completed over a one or two week period. New bartending classes start each week. Weekend classes are also available. Please contact us for exact start times and dates.
With over 27 years in the business of training bartenders, our training methods are sound and our reputation is unmatched.
