Being an independent school we have the ability to update our recipes, techniques and training methods several times a year. This allows us to offer you a more relevant training programme than the big international schools. We also offer a more personal style of tuition as our class sizes are smaller giving you more one on one time with the teachers.
Don’t be fooled into thinking the most expensive is the best. It isn’t! We are a small school with a great reputation charging what we believe is the right price. Our passion motivates us, not the price.
Yes of course. We are only at the school whilst a course is running. So check the course dates here and come along to see the classes in action. The best times to visit are between 12.00pm and 3.30pm. It is advisable to phone in advance to ensure that someone will have time to talk with you on your visit.
A high level of written English is not necessary. As long as you can understand what the teachers say and read the manual then you will be just fine. If you are not sure then you can either phone or visit us to have a conversation. We can then advise you if your language skills are good enough.
There are no recognised cocktail bartending qualifications in the United Kingdom. However the London Bar School has a global reputation for producing outstanding bartenders, so our Diploma will open up many great opportunities for you. Remember though, a piece of paper or some letters after your name will not get you a job. You will have to prove yourself behind the bar in a trial shift. That is why our course focuses on practical skills not just theoretical knowledge.
Students must be aged 18 or over on the start date of their chosen course.
If you are staying at the hostel you must be aged between 18 and 35.
