The New York school

When you study in our New York school, you’ll be based in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We’re a 10-minute bike ride from the EBS apartments and just 900 metres from three different L-line subway stations, keeping you well connected to the rest of the city.

EBS New York is our flagship school. This spacious converted warehouse was purpose-built for our bartender courses. You’ll be crafting cocktails at our industry-standard bar stations, mastering your moves in the flair area and chilling with your coursemates on our huge terrace. And that’s just the start.

We have two EBS apartments in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. These apartments make the perfect home away from home during your course, whether you’re coming from another town, city or state.

You’ll be just 150 metres from two G-line subway stations and 800 metres from Lorimer Street Station, which takes you directly to downtown Manhattan in no time.

After-hours activities

To stay in-line with current Covid-19 restrictions, we might need to temporarily pause or adjust some of these activities.

New York holds so many secrets, we will let you in on some of them as we tour this fascinating city.

Get a spectacular bird’s eye view of the Big Apple as we go to the top of one of these two iconic skyscrapers.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the city’s leading breweries and distilleries. We’ll go on a tour to see just how these fantastic products are made, and maybe even taste the final product.

Visit Ellis Island and get a selfie with one of the world’s most iconic statues, Lady Liberty. If you’re really lucky, you can reserve to see the city through the statue’s crown…it’s only 354 stairs to the top!

Hit the road with EBS as we discover some incredible Northeastern cities like Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and Boston.

One of the USA’s biggest and best theme parks, our trip to Six Flags is a must. Ride some of the most adrenaline-pumping roller coasters on the planet.

Take the opportunity to experience the very best that theatre has to offer at a Broadway show. With the most high-profile stage actors, stunning costumes and visuals, it’ll be a night to remember.

Come and experience the unique atmosphere of a New York sporting event. Whether it’s baseball, basketball or football, you’ll see some of the world’s best athletes take centre stage.

Get inspired by a trip to one of the many museums in the city. Even if you’re not a ‘museum person’, you’ll be amazed by the things you’ll see and learn during your trip.
