EBS Cape Town was an absolutely amazing experience. This is one of those situations where it isn’t a cliche to say it was one of the best months of my life. The EBS curriculum can take you from not knowing anything about cocktails (except drinking them) to being comfortable behind any bar. The course is hard work, but Cass and Ruann are the right people to lead you through it all. And to top it all off, Cape Town and South Africa as a whole add to the entire adventure. I wish I could do it all over again!

Honestly, I don’t know how to put my experience I had here into words. This place has opened my eyes to so many possibilities and has given me one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had and I wish it would of never ended. Thank you guys for the memories and my certificate! I will be recommending this course to everyone and hope to be putting my new found skills to some good use!
