Brooklyn Bartending Academy is pleased to announce our inaugural summer season of classes. All bartending academies are not created equally, and we are the only authentic one catering specifically to the young and tragically hip on the Brooklyn scene, or those who wish to be.
Our academy features real bartenders at some of Williamsburg’s most popular bars, as well as entrée to the hottest social scene in the city. BBA prides itself on not only teaching the fundamentals of bartending, but also introducing its students to the movers and shakers of the nightlife, something no other bartending academy offers. Our classes are offered weekly and run from 10am-1pm, offering 12 hours of bartending instruction. These classes will take place at Artland Bar, a staple of the Williamsburg bar [scene] and to cap off the week, we will host a Friday night graduation celebration at varying locations where students will mingle with the who’s who of Brooklyn society while showing off their bartending skills; this party is what makes BBA unique. We pride ourselves on not just teaching the basics, but really immersing our students in the society in which they wish to work. Through us, they will meet the best of Brooklyn’s DJs and nightlife photographers, as well as their fellow drink slingers. These connections will be the crux of their success as bartenders.
Brooklyn Bartending Academy is the new generation of bartending academies: while we teach the fundamentals that all bartending academies offer, we take it to the next level. We are excited to cultivate the next wave in Brooklyn bartenders. Please contact the Brooklyn Bartending Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or press materials.
That’s right, Brooklyn bartenders, it’s time to take it to the next level! Instead of a PBR and a shot of Jack, make it a … uh … you know … whatever, dude …
