ABC is the largest privately owned bartending school system in the United States.  Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977.  Bartenders are known for their ability to make great money while meeting new people and having lots of fun at their jobs.  Look around you at the number of liquor serving establishments and the number of bartenders (full time and part time) that it takes to staff these establishments.

If you are 21 years of age or older, you could be in this picture, training in just 40 hours to become a professional mixologist.
