ABC Bartending School is governed by the Council for Private Post-Secondary Vocational Education of California.


ABC Bartending School in Riverside / Colton is conveniently located off of Route 10 and the 215.  ABC is the largest privately owned bartending school system in the Nation.  Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977.

The Sylvester family has been in the Hospitality industry for three generations.  Tony brings you all that experience in his school's curriculum and manual.

Look at the great cities listed at the bottom of the page where Tony has opened schools.  As you can see, all these cities are hospitality oriented, which means lots of restaurants, hotels, country clubs, night cubs and bars.  Now what does that mean for ABC graduates?  Opportunity!

Look around at the number of liquor serving establishments in your city and the number of bartenders, both full time and part time, that it takes to staff these operations.  Get the picture?

Bartenders are known for their ability to make great money, have fun and meet people.

Thousands of students are trained and placed every year nationwide by ABC in our professional one week, two week, and three week programs that cover all the techniques used to become a professional bartender.

ABC Bartending Schools also offers all of its graduates free lifetime job placement assistance and free refresher courses from coast to coast at all of its locations.
