The Flair Bartending Course brings you one step closer to becoming a professional flair bartender. After graduating and passing your WFA Orange Level, you’ll be a more accomplished bartender, ready to train for WFA Green Level.
Our Flair Bartending Course provides you with extra security when it comes to the course exam. If you don’t pass the first time around you get a free second attempt.
How it works
The Flair Bartending Course is designed to prepare you for your Orange Level WFA exam, but our instructors are flexible and adapt their teaching to the current skills of each student. It’s a great start if you’ve already reached Yellow Level, but there’s no requirement.
Every course includes a free WFA Grading Test, but there’s no pressure to sit any exam if you don’t want to.
If you wish to take the WFA Orange Level exam, however, you must first have completed the Yellow Level exam. There is the option to pay for the Yellow Level exam mid-way throughout the week in order to take the Orange Level at the end for free through EBS. If you’re not ready for Orange by then, you have six months to come back and take it with us when you feel more confident.
Course Content Overview
This is an introduction to flair bartending and its brief history, we say ‘brief’ as flair has only been a part of popular bar culture since around the 1980s. We’ll touch on the World Flair Association (WFA), Grading system, and its significance in the bartending world.
We’re talking all things flair. Working, exhibition, and craft. Whether you want smooth professional moves to use behind the bar or extravagant sequences to stun guests or competition judges, we’ll cover it all. You’ll leave a master of flair skills with new sequences of mesmerising moves.
Here, time is of the essence. You’ll learn the skills to mix up specific cocktails under a time limit without messing up any measurements. Keeping a cool head and steady hand is what’ll make you stand out from other bartenders.
Dramatic pours are entertaining and eye-catching but measurements still need to remain spot on! Practise timing chase and flair pours perfectly.
See how other pros adapt their flair sequences to express their personalities whilst drinking in funky bars.
This is the last stage of the course where you can put everything you’ve learned into practice. It’s nothing to stress about - we just want to give you space to show off your newfound moves and feel what it’s like to have a live audience. It’s your time to shine and put your own spin on combining flair bartending skills and cocktail mixing. We’ll grade you according to the WFA Grading system (if you wish) so you can leave qualified.
