School was great, the only thing I knew before this school was popping the top of a beer bottle. But Chris and the school has given me immense knowledge in this field.
After working as a barback observing bartenders and comparing the techniques I've been taught by Chris. I feel I'll be a better bartender than the bartenders I currently work with. The atmosphere at ABC is not stressful and easy to learn in...

The class was incredibly informative, and Chris made sure to take time out for each student to maximize their full potential. As an instructor, with his student, not at them. Which can make all the difference.
I enjoyed my time here at ABC Bartending School. Chris has a very effective way of teaching the drink ingredients. With lots of word association that really helps in remembering the many different drinks. The atmosphere in the class is very laid back and the energy is positive.
I had a lot of fun taking this class, Chris had a great sense of humor and kept things interesting. He taught in a way I could easily understand, I would definitely refer and encourage friends and other people to take this class.
I had a lot of fun in this class. I learned so much. The teacher was very laid back and informative! I love that the class was about 90% hands on . That's how I learn the best! I would recommend this school in a heartbeat!
Great class!!! Compared to the other bartending class I took. I feel this was easier to learn and helped it stay with me.
Very informative and hands on approach to bartending/mixology! Chris was very "down to earth" and energetic at the same time very knowledgeable of what this industry consists of. This experience was a great opportunity to develop my skills in the hospitality industry.
Very clear, thorough, and fun interactive class. Enjoyed it from beginning to end. The atmosphere was easy going and comfortable. I learned many drinks and bartending basics that are sure to help me on my new career choice. The small amount time Chris had to teach the class in was impressive, he did an amazing job covering all the bases. Would recommend ABC or Chris to anyone! Money well spent!
The class is at a great pace, very informative and effective learning techniques. Chris is a great teacher , he's made it fun and I'm excited to get out there and show off this new skill set.
The class was very informative and organized. There were copious opportunities to practice mixing/making drinks in many different ways. (Tickets, call outs, tests, etc.) Chris is a excellent instructor. He makes you feel comfortable as a student, whether you've worked at a bar before, or you are coming in with no previous experience.
Chris is an amazing instructor. I came here knowing next to nothing about alcohol. I am leaving with a wealth of knowledge and understanding of bartending, alcohol and bar etiquette. Awesome experience....thx Chris!
Bartending class was great experience. Very hands on and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend ABC if interested in this career. Chris was an awesome teacher who made the process of learning easier and much more worth the time. His knowledge of making drinks is incredible.
Class was great, teacher was very understanding, reasonable and helpful. Teacher managed to teach over 100 drink recipes in a 5 day period. And made it very easy to remember all within the same period. Fun class, great hands on, excellent patients and strategy.
Extremely informative. The hands on experience was paramount in my developement as a bartender. Great balance!
I have greatly enjoyed the class. Chris has been an awesome instructor. Very laid back environment. I'm looking forward to my new career. Thank you for cramming all of this knowledge into my brain.
