How cool would it be to Bartend? Next time you are out and about in a Central PA bar, take a second to check out what’s going on behind the bar. Notice the bartenders having a blast while preparing great cocktails and entertaining guests. Pay particular attention to the amount of money flying across the bar… Looks pretty good doesn’t it? That’s because it is. Most of our graduates agree that bartending is the best job ever! “Why didn’t I do this years ago?!”
It is very important that you understand that you are not just an order taker and a cocktail maker. Be prepared to be one or more of the following: the life of the party, the face of your establishment, a psychologist, a friend, a voice of reason, a mediator, a marriage counselor, a life coach, a comedian, an occasional taxi driver, and the un-proclaimed expert on pretty much everything (among other things).
Sounds pretty crazy… but, you’ve been working on most of those skills for the majority of your life. It’s called your personality and people skills; hopefully, you’ve gotten them down to a science by now- it probably hasn’t been easy.
Oh yeah, and you need to know how to make pretty much every drink known to man while maintaining control of your bar and playing nice with the rest of the staff…
Luckily, understanding and mastering the system behind preparing drinks and running a bar is easy. Making money as a bartender is easy (and truthfully, why we are all here). Bar managers and owners in the Harrisburg, Lancaster, York and surrounding areas are looking for a bartender that has this system down to a science. A good bartender knows what to do with guests from the minute they sit in that bar-stool to the minute they leave. A good bartender should know the routine of their establishment. This is why Capitol Bartending School graduates are in high demand. If you have good people skills and a good personality, Capitol Bartending School can teach you the rest.
