What’s New


July 2015 – Summer is here and that means patios are open for business. Staffing sizes increase by 20 – 40% in the spring and summer. Special events like the Calgary Stampede and out door concerts also provide a great opportunity for bartenders to earn extra cash.

Students that complete their training now will be able to take advantage of this hiring cycle.

Customer Service Tip: Introduce yourself by name when you greet new customers. Smile and make eye contact with all of the people sitting at the table when you do so.

  • Highly recommended to anyone seeking the absolute best in achieving success in professional mixology!! Great hands on & one-on-one teaching experience!

  • Ben did a great job, Graduated today. Was a lot of fun. Definitely going to be staying active through FAB!

  • Amazing class, had SO MUCH FUN!!!

  • Had a great experience, learned a bunch and had fun doing it!

  • I took the course taught at fine art bartending on whyte and I must say I have no regrets. The class was interactive, personal, fun and the teacher of the course evidently knew his material. As far as job opportunities are concerned I talked with the instructor and made it clear I was very interested in pursing the entertainment and hospitality industry and he through the contacts he had gave me someone to call. I have a interview coming up in this week.

  • The school is awesome for people looking to expand their knowledge & gain an understanding & appreciation for alcohol as well as the hospitality industry.

  • I already had experience, but needed a refresher after being at home with my kids for a few years. I came out of the course more confident and with a whole bunch of new skills. Ready to get a new job! Take this course, it's worth it!!

  • Had such am awesome time here mixing drinks. I was excited to come to class everyday. The teachers were fun to talk to and great to hang out with had lots of laughs, lots of jokes,

  • Thank you Fine Art Bartending School I think I just had the shortest job search of my life! I got insta-hired!!  I applied at like 6 or so places and they were all instant interviews and East Side Mario's hired me up front.

  • I was recently hired at the Calgary Petroleum Club after having done the course at Fine Art.. I'm really enjoying the work and I look forward to these coming months.
