Please take a minute and read very carefully what I have to say. In recent months, all kinds of online bartending schools and courses are popping up. As director of several established bartending schools and with 33 years of bartending and beverage hospitality experience, I have trained and placed thousands of bartenders because my graduates have actual “HANDS ON TRAINING”.  They are hired and make great money because they can do the job. Let’s say you want to become a auto mechanic or technician - can you learn that on line? NO! You need to get your hands on the equipment to learn and to the job.

.Reasons for not taking an online course:


My schools are licensed and regulated by state education agencies, so my certificate has credibility when you apply for bartending work. Licensed schools adhere to State guidelines from proper facilities for training: instructors that have the experience to teach, job placement guidelines, bonded to assure you that we will be hear when you need us.


I pay a full time job placement director who places my graduates, sets up appointments and interviews, and provides private party and event work on a weekly basis (my grads get paid $20 per hour for these jobs).  No matter what they say, you are on your own with an online course.  Once they have your money and have sent you some drink recipes that is it - they may as well just say, "Good luck and thanks for your money."


So, you know what is in a Margarita from reading the recipe.  Okay, now get behind a real bar and make a Margarita for me - what do you do first? On the rocks or straight up? Frozen or blended? Which tequila do you use? Triple Sec or Cointreau?  If you do not know the answer,  that tells you licensed schools will provide you with the education and skills to really become a professional bartender and make some money. And that is only one drink out of 150 that you learn at my schools.


How do you to hold a liquor bottle so you pour the right amounts? How do you hold 2 or 4 bottles at one time? How do you pour 1oz, 1 1/4 oz, 1 1/2 oz or 2 oz accurately? Can you learn these skills online? I don't think so.


What is Dewar’s? What is Grand Marnier? What does the bottle and label look like? In my schools, you work with the actual bottles, so when you go to work in a real bar you recognize your product and feel experienced right away. This will not happen online. I could go on and on but you get the point.  Licensed brick and mortar bartending schools have been around for 40 years and there is a good reason for that. Our programs work. You are trained to be a professional bartender and you are able to work and make money as one. You get what you pay for. If you are thinking of bartending, do it right. Visit our schools and make an intelligent decision based on facts.  What have you got to lose? Tuition for most schools is very reasonable. Graduates usually make their money back in 1-2 weeks of work. Try to think of any other skill that you can learn and make your tuition back in a few weeks.

The ABC Bartending School in Miami, Florida, is located 1/4 mile East from the 826/Palmetto Expressway at 7329 West Flagler Street. Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977.

Bartenders are known for their ability to make a good living, have fun, and meet people. Continue down this page for a look at our Placement List for Miami. Then click on the sidebar for a look at our Placement Lists for other parts of the country as well as Letters of Recommendations and Newspaper Articles. Now you can see why Tony Sylvester is one of the leaders in this field.

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 clubs 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?

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.
