Fairfield Connecticut Bartending School


Bartending is not only one of the oldest trades, it has also consistently been one of the most profitable investments offered in vocational education. We have seen, throughout 25 years of operation, many of our graduates rapidly achieve an exceptional return on investment. A good bartender can generate income greater than many college graduates might expect to make in entry-level professional positions.

Where does your motivation come from? How far will you follow your dreams? A career in bartending will be the result of everything that you put into it. It's a job where working hard and building relationships will become second nature and an everyday occurrence. Whether it's full-time or part-time, bar, club or restaurant, you decide what you want, work hard at it, and it can be yours in this business.

Bartending has always been considered the classic recession-proof trade. It's here to stay, good times or bad, but the competition for obtaining lucrative professional bartending positions seems to be ever increasing. For this reason, among others, a solid foundation encompassing the core skills you will need to be successful is more important than ever.

Having a reputable and strong job placement organization behind you, especially when just beginning in the trade, can be crucial as well. Bartenders Academy brings you these critical elements, and more. We have proudly been doing just that for a quarter-century. Congratulations again for having the foresight, and in taking the initiative, to explore a great opportunity.

Mission Statement:

First and foremost, we are a Connecticut state licensed occupational school dedicated to educating individuals in the art and ethics of professional bartending and exceptional customer service. Coupled with our core mixology curriculum, which upon successful completion leads to a formal bartender certification, our dual mission is to stand directly behind each and every graduate as they seek employment in the trade.

While we are well aware of our roles and responsibilities as educators, and certainly take great pride in our abilities and accomplishments as such, we do realize that our "bottom line" effectiveness as an organization is most significantly measured by the success of our graduate population in the field.
