Why learn bartending in Sydney?

Why learn bartending in Sydney?

The Sydney bartending scene is ablaze on every level: choose from a huge range of rooftop terraces, water-level lookouts, and underground bars. The more clued-up will know that Sydney has a thriving American-style speakeasy scene. In some places, you even need a passcode to enter. Another trend is tasting drinks right where they were made in breweries or distilleries. And don’t forget the ever-popular Australian pub. Wherever you fancy landing a job, you can!

The Sydney school

The Sydney school

Our Sydney school is a bartender-producing machine. With 17 bar stations, 15 flair stations, and 15 free pour stations, we can accommodate a large number of students. That means more friends to discover this happening city with!

Just around the corner from the school is the newly developed shopping centre and residential area, Central Park. Here you’ll find a large supermarket, a variety of shops, and 2 food courts. This is a great spot for hanging out and practising flair. And, if you want to explore a bit further away, the city’s main train station is a 7-minute walk away
