Name, Address, Phone and Your Bartending Goals To:




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!”

 “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!”

“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”
