"Mixology Bartending School San Diego was the best decision I made to get into the bartending business. They give you a lot of hands on training and personal tips to become a great bartender. I took the accelerated course recently -- no bartending experience and by the end of the week I knew over 100 cocktails, the methods, the types of alcohol etc. A week after I graduated I got hired at Lupis Restaurant in La Jolla! Come stop in and say hi! :)! PS. They keep you updated on job leads and let you come in anytime after you graduate to practice. Thank you Al and Frank! You're #1 Student Sue! :-)"
