Bartenders are known for their ability to make a good living, have fun, and meet people.  Take a look below at our Placement List for San Francisco, CA.  Then click on the sidebar to see our Placement Lists for other parts of the country as well as Letters of Recommendations and Newspaper Articles.  These clearly show that our bartending schools are leaders in this field.

We bring all of this experience to you in our hands-on training.  Our expertise is also clearly seen in our school’s curriculum and manual.

Look at the great cities listed at the bottom of the page where we have state licensed bartending 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!

You can also easily see 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 throughout America by ABC in our professional one week, two week, and three week programs that cover all the techniques used to become a professional bartender.

Remember, to get started just call us.
