What Kinds of People Become Bartenders?

It is a common misconception that only young people who enjoy mixed drinks and cocktails should become bartenders. It is true that many of Metropolitan’s students fit this profile however we also have a significant number of older students as well as students from a range of backgrounds. Many different people choose to become bartenders either on a full time or part time basis.

And why wouldn’t you? It’s a career that can pay daily and in cash. It allows you to work flexible hours and it is a versatile skill. This means that you can take your career in any direction you want. These benefits attract many people to our bartending school, including:

Students. Bartending is a popular choice for college students because the wages and tips that they make can help to pay for tuition and books. It is also an attractive job for students as bartending can offer seasonal work in a fun and entertaining atmosphere.

Part-time professionals and the self-employed. Bartending allows people who are already employed or are working freelance an opportunity to even out their cash flow. It also gives them a chance to socialize with customers and co-workers. This is something that is missing from a lot of jobs these days.

Retirees. This is another group who are looking to stave off isolation as well as earn a bit of extra cash. It is hard to think of a better way to stay active than pouring drinks behind the bar in a local pub or golf course a couple of nights a week.
