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 CASH TRANSACTION! Using the 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 ACTUALLY GUEST BARTEND IN BASSMNT NIGHTCLUB WHILE IT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. BARTEND TO REAL CUSTOMERS! THE REAL THING!
Those that are not able to get their certifications, do not worry! We bring the experience to class and provide the authentic bar and nightclub atmosphere! GBS turns the nightclub on, feel the music, lights and the same exact atmosphere during class as part of the Mock Service section, experience the real thing! This “experience” is priceless and will separate you from your competition and give you tremendous confidence.
With Gaslamp Bartending Schools's deep industry connections, jobs and bartending events are very common. Since this program is created by TODAY'S veteran managers and bartenders, nobody is more connected to today's industry professionals then GBS, we guarantee it.
At GBS we truly care about our students, we do events to help get our students exposures and experience. When business call us for bartenders we send them the candidates that best fit their venue. And we carfully monitor all students during class and after to make sure they are getting the most out of this program.
