Bartending Success Stories:

It was awesome! The stories that the instructor told were not only amusing but provided a valuable insight into the industry. The emphasis on hands on learning, making cocktails and completing orders, really helped to build my confidence. I learned a lot in a relaxed and friendly environment. Very enjoyable and money well spent. I would recommend Metropolitan to anyone!

Mario L.

I enjoyed the relaxed feeling that comes with learning at Metropolitan. Despite it being very chilled they recreated the stressful situations that sometimes come when working behind a bar very well. This helped me to learn not only how to pour drinks but also to handle cash, keep track on an inventory and make sure my customers are having a great time. I am really glad that I chose Metropolitan. It was brilliant and useful! Thank you!

Robert Y.

I enjoyed everything about Metropolitan. Some of my friends had done the course before me and couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Now I can see why. My instructor, Chad, was really funny and helped me to learn vital skills such as upselling. I loved the casual atmosphere that came with having such a small class. This also meant that we had a lot of personal coaching, which enhanced the learning experience. The facilities were also great, all the things that you need to master bartending were provided. It’s also great that you can return at any time to brush up your skills. The location was also nice and easy to get to.
