*****************MESSAGE regarding COVID 19 Pandemic***************

COVID 19 has forced us to temporarily close the school until June 10th to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. As a result, we are offering a FREE virtual happy hour that ANYONE can join above 21 years of age. This Wednesday, 4/8/2020, at 6:15pm, we are teaching everyone how to make popular RUM cocktails at home. Owner, Mike Love and Jordan Lee from The Professional Bartending Academy will be discussing the details of equipment, ingredients, techniques, product selection, and live demonstrations featuring 3 cocktails. Through the Zoom video conferencing application, you and your family can interact with us through our lesson and ask any questions about making rum drinks at home. No experience or certification required.

*********************************************************************

The Professional Bartending Academy is certified by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. Since 1994, we have been Central Virginia’s number one bartending school since 1994. Through our passion for bartending, the staff at The Professional Bartending Academy strives to provide high-quality hands-on training to prepare individuals for work in any bar atmosphere.

While attending bartending class, students learn the organizational habits, bar etiquette, and high volume bar techniques to propel them into the bar industry. Upon graduation, we counsel and assist our graduates by connecting them to local bars, restaurants, hotels, country clubs, nightclubs, or private parties. Through The Professional Bartending Academy’s 26 year history as a local business, we have trained and placed thousands of students across the state of Virginia.
