OUR MISSION: To re-define the bartending school experience.

Our mission is to provide our students with the most complete program possible. Like similar schools, we teach the basics of the bar including drink recipes and steps to deliver exceptional service, but Gaslamp Bartending School does not stop there. With our vast industry connections, we are able to offer our students the opportunity to learn in a live nightclub environment behind an active bar! Yes you can guest bartend to real customers! We also are the only school with access to Aloha point of sales systems (computerized cash registers). We fully train our students to use the Aloha system which is the most commonly used system throughout the country, especially in San Diego.

The last step is getting the job. Part of our mission is to get our students hired. GBS has tons of industry connections which we utilize to help our students. Unlike similar schools though, we do not mislead our students  by saying businesses call us for bartenders, or that we provide bartenders with “job placement.”  What we do offer at the conclusion of the program is a complete Job Hunting workshop. GBS has teamed with  the San Diego based hospitably job placement agency  www.Industry.co (learn more about Industry in "Jobs") to put our students on the best and quickest path to getting the bar job they desire. Students also will work with one of today’s managers to build and strengthen their resume, interviewing skills, and understand how to use the latest technology, tools and tactics to find the job that is right for you. Our students leave this program with full bar and cocktail knowledge, service skills, POS training, real experience and the skills to get a job TODAY!
