Listen to the review from a graduate about their GBS experience.

GET REAL BARTENDING EXPERIENCE:
REAL BARTENDING EXPERIENCE! GBS has 4 ways we consistently provide REAL or PAID BARTENDING EXPERIENCE; live service training at Bassmnt or our events at Gaslamp Fish House, El Chingon or any of our other hosted events at different venues through out the year. GBS host through out each month at Gaslamp Fish House and El Chingon (voted SD’s top bar 2018). Students are always the bartenders and get REAL and PAID bartending experience! Other venues we host out through out the year: Sidebar, American Junkie, Atomic, Wheat & Water and more! These "guest bartending" jobs are an opportunity to gain: priceless experience, money (usually enough to cover the price of class), job recruitment, boost confidence, your resume will now be able to include bartending "experience" and these jobs are great selling point in job interviews. #onlyatgbs
Being actual, active bartenders and bar mangers gives GBS the connections to provide amazing bartending opportunities for GBS students.

WE DO NOT MISLEAD OR LIE TO OUR STUDENTS. OTHER SCHOOLS HAVE GIVEN THIS INDUSTRY A BAD NAME AND GBS IS HERE TO END THAT.
Owner/Founder Adriano Nunziante, a former bartending school graduate, noticed some ways to improve the bartending school curriculum. Bartending schools did not fully prepare students. There is so much more to becoming a bartender than the same old; this is the bar, these are the drinks. Every single section is carefully developed by a team of current bartenders and managers with deep industry connections to produce the best product possible. Compare GBS to any school out there, you will see nobody offers the same experience. You will also find out nobody cares more about their students then GBS.
One of the biggest concerns to Adriano was that no schools offered POS training aka computerized cash register training. How can someone be ready to bartend if they have no idea how to do the most important part besides make the drink correctly, THE MONEY TRANSACTION! Using these complex computers can be difficult and will stop you from ever bartending. Knowing how to operate a computerized cash register is a MUST. GBS is the only school that incorporates REAL computers, students are prepared to ring in that cash and not have anything holding them back. There is no bartending without the hours of training it takes to master the computerized cash register (POS), learn with us!
“EXPERIENCE”, you will hear this word a lot. Most jobs require an amount of experience before consideration. Here at GBS we have the unique ability to be the only bartending school to offer students the “Experience” they need to thrive. Students that have their Food handlers card and L.E.A.D certification (can be done online, instructors show students) CAN ACTUALLY GUEST BARTEND IN BASSMNT NIGHTCLUB WHILE IT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. BARTEND TO REAL CUSTOMERS! THE REAL THING! THIS OUR “LIVE SERVICE TRAINING” experience. Next to your instructor for a few hours on a weekend night, your bartending and doing the real thing. The same comfortable place you learned to bartend in with your instructor to help along the way. Read more here:
