Thank you for your interest with ABC Bartending Schools and the bartending profession.  No matter what you decide contact or visit us before you make any decisions regarding bartending training as my schools in Dallas and Fort Worth have several unique advantages over any other bartending training program in the Metroplex.   My staff is with you from beginning to end, they will answer your questions, invite you to visit and observe a class, show you current job placement history but most important they teach the classes and share there knowledge of bartending they have a personal interest to train you to become a professional successful bartender & will do all they can to assist you in finding that first bartending job.  I say this as other programs have a sales staff & separate teaching staff and if you take the time to speak with the ABC staff or visit a school location you will understand what I mean.

My instructors have 100 years of experience combined myself over 33 years in the industry, my director of Dallas over 22 years this experience in the classroom makes for a qualified ABC graduate and has opened up hundreds of job placement opportunities for graduates in the Metroplex.   Visit any school and make sure you have an opportunity to speak directly with the instructors not just a sales representative when making a choice about bartending schools.

Classroom:   My bars are fully equipped, real ice, ice machines, soda guns, updated bottle inventory, glassware, latest in videos, TABC classes weekly, visiting our location will show you why ABC here in Dallas and Fort Worth is equipped to help you train successfully.

Hours:  Yes our program is only 2 weeks Monday through Thursday and it is great that you can learn a skill in just 2 weeks and make the money that bartenders do, but ABC wants you to be confident and prepared, I pay my staff to be at my locations Friday and Saturday for one reason only "YOU" all students are encouraged to come to practice behind the bar and to receive any additional training you feel you need.  TRY GOING IN TO ANY OTHER SCHOOL ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY TO SEE IF THIS ABC ADVANTAGE IS THERE!  By the way this is free to all of my students, NO CHARGE.

ABC is not independently owned but we are the largest privately owned bartending system in the country so you are assured of having life time refresher courses and job placement for life at any ABC locations as Tony Sylvester treats each ABC students as his own at all of his locations, this may not happen with independents who take care of there own first.

One last note please do not waste your time or money with 800 # or internet bartending schools that offer certification and placement either on-line or through the mail they do not work.  Question would you learn to fly an airplane or snow skiing through the mail, of course not you need to have hands on training with experience that can only get from a qualified instructor.

Of course everyone wants to know how much does a bartending course cost??   Contact us and we will tell you right over the phone or on-line but keep this in perspective, PRIVATE FUNCTIONS my graduates are paid up to $20-$25 per hour to do private bartending work, my schools have handled huge events around the Metroplex for years (Texas Motor Speedway) here a bartender may make several hundred dollars in one weekend, so be assured you can always redeem your investment in ABC by doing several bartending functions so WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOOSE?  NOTHING.

When considering bartending call us and visit that will help you make an intelligent decision as you will have all the facts from staffing, school facility, job placement and tuition.
