Recent Graduate Testimonials

Joshua Boaz
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.

Cody Cooper
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...

Orlando Brown Jr.
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.

Simone Daley
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.

Jose Bonilla
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.
