 ”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!

Hope all is well.

I wanted to thank you for a great class in May 2015. I was able to get a bartending job in Stamford in June and am now working at The Crafty Monk in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport.

Once I started working at both places, it became apparent to myself and the owners 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 continue to learn every shift and enjoy this work immensely.

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 Lucey

Charlie is one of those people where words can not describe a person well enough because you’re always missing something out! I recently completed the weekend course and absolutely loved it. It was informative, entertaining and most importantly concise. The techniques I learned, were top of the line and I also received unique and beneficial restaurant business industry tips from an experienced, successful businessman! Charlie, thanks for your help in taking my culinary skillset to the next level, with mixology! Charlie you’re awesome!
