Bar & Cocktail training with a difference.
Our “Work Ready” classes were created by Auckland’s Bartending Legends to help future bartenders get the skills bar owners are looking for. They will teach you the latest industry level skills, recipes and tips, making you knowledgeable, confident and highly employable.
The Barista Academy has a reputation as “the only place to train if your serious about getting a job” the graduates are always in high demand, often securing work before they even finish their training.
Our Industry Level Bartender training has been created with the exact same ethos… high quality hands-on industry level training so work will fall in your lap.
We want you want to be turning down jobs not begging bar owners to employ you.
