 “Charlie, I hope your students appreciate your teaching and training. I have bartended for 30 years and I learned more about bartending and the business during your one week training than I did in  those 30 years.”

              Donald DiPasquale

“Hi Charlie!! 

I wanted to thank you for a great class . I was able to get a bartending job in Stamford and I am now  also bartending in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport.

Once I started working at both places, it became apparent to the owners who said that I knew a lot; and in some cases more than people with 10+ years experience.  Yesterday I was by myself and was able to serve 12 at bar and another 12 at bar top tables. I was hosting, serving, mixing, bar backing, busing, and running food. On another occasion I had a full bar of 25, was also mixing for wait staff, and all went smoothly.

I would recommend your class to anyone and it was well worth the commute from Norwalk. Thanks again and Cheers!”

Neil Camhi

 “I had a fantastic time learning mixology techniques, bar etiquette, and drink recipes each day! From day one I could tell this was the real deal; Charlie was energetic, knowledgeable and provided honest insight into the world of bartending. Went from learning to accurately pour ounces, to making 100 plus drink on the final day. I graduated about a week ago and today was my first time out seeking a bartending job…well…I applied, I interviewed, and I was offered a bartending job all in the same day! I highly recommend taking this course! Best of luck everyone! Thanks Charlie!”

Jonathan Luce  

“Mr. Oat, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. As a teacher and overall class, you have exceeded all of my expectations. I have gained such a confidence I didn’t know was possible. Thanks Again Maria”

“Please quote me! The graduates from your school are the most professional and well trained bartenders that I have found.”
