I came across the school on a drive by and stopped to check it out. Matt, instructor available at the time, was very welcoming, greeted me, and gave me a tour of the school. Having taken a similar course over 13 years ago, I had doubts I wouldn't learn much different. I enrolled anyway (2 weeks later) just because of the passion I have for bartending and the placement rate they advertised. To my surprise, I picked up on their methods for remembering more drinks. They taught not only from the textbook but also from their experience. This combination is effective in making anyone into a Professional Mixologist and not just someone who knows how to tend bar. The classes wherever interesting and lively, nd yet kept very professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone with he least bit of interest in bartending to taking the course taught by Matt and Jeramy.

Bartending school gave me a chance to branch out into a new field that I had no idea about. The staff here are great and take the time to make sure you know the material. Bartending school is definitely worth the investment. It helps you to branch out into a job that you have never experienced. I feel more confident leaving here and going into the real world with what i have learned.

I recommend PBS at Knoxville without reservation! The entire experience was very stimulating and rewarding. Matt and Jeramy are both masters of the craft, and they both have the patience and personality that makes great instructors. The material was presented in a manner that was not overwhelming while still being challenging. I was especially impressed with the life-like bar set up, which was quite conducive to quality practice experiences.

Thank you for the wonderful experience while attending you school. I cannot explain how much I learned and how comfortable you have made me feel during my time at Pbsa of Knoxville. I highly recommend your school to both current and want-to-be Bartenders. You both made me feel welcomed and I know you cared and had my best interest in mind through out the course. Your styles of teaching made it easy to learn and extremely enjoyable. thank you for taking so much time to ensure that I learned Professional Mixology the correct way. I know this will be a huge benefit as I enter the Market.

When i started out in the bartending school my parents were skeptical about the program, Butt Matt and Jeramy cleared everything up. when starting i had average knowledge of types of drinks I like and thought it was going to be easy, was i wrong! Even though the memorization of drink preparation and ingredients is overwhelming I kept studying harder and harder at the school and at home. With the pushing and positive outlook the instructors helped me persevere threw the program and helped me graduate in the end. this was a huge leap in my career, knowledge and and being. this is a fun challenging, entertaining and great program to take. To anyone who is thinking about doing this SIGN UP!!!

going to school here was definitely an experience i would do again. the instructors were great and very helpful. They relate to you on a such a level, it’s like your friend teaching the class. They crack jokes and stuff but they also teach you all you need to know about bartending plus some. I will recommend this place to anyone interested in the bartending field. I will honestly stop by this place every so often just to BS and talk with these guys.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the bartending school. Although I had schedule conflicts, the instructors worked with me to find make up classes, and I still finished the course in 2 weeks. I now feel very comfortable behind the bar making all different kinds of drinks. Some equipment could use an update, but what is here currently is definitely substantial for learning all the basics and proper techniques. I've already used a lot of what I've learned, and I can't wait to use it more in the future!

The instructors are great and will help you succeed, however the school building itself is in need of updating. To fully simulate a bar experinece they need to refunish and improve the classroom conditions. SImple things such as plumbing and having a " bar standard" to proactice changing bottles etc.

An overall pleasant experience and would recommend to friends, just with the hope that it will be updated in the near future.

I have many friends who are bartenders and i have always wanted to be one so now that my kids have grown and moved away i can do what i have wanted to do for many years. I feel like with my business back ground and dealing with people every day (which i really enjoy) will help me in the bartending business. The knoxville bartending school has give me the confidence to go out and do my job and have fun at it.
