Learn bartending at our Richmond Bartending School

Welcome to our Richmond, Virginia Bartending School website! We certainly understand your interest in learning more about our bartending school and the career of bartending.

Our Richmond Bartending School was founded in 1991 and has staff instructors with over 45 years combined experience in the food and beverage industry.

We consider bartending a "hands-on" profession that can best be learned behind a real bar from an experienced instructor. There are no desks or chairs in our classrooms.

Our students learn bartending and mixology skills at a 24-foot, professional bar with fully equipped work stations, each with a three-bay sink with hot and cold running water. Our professional bar is stocked with facsimile liquors, liqueurs, wine, beer, mixers, and garnishes. The Richmond Bartending Academy's bar is fully equipped with professional glassware and all utensils and equipment needed for a full-service bar operation.

Our students sit at the bar and watch our qualified instructors prepare and explain each and every drink in front of them. Our students then spend the rest of their class making the drinks behind an actual bar under the close supervision of our instructors.
