Don’t just be a Bartender,
be an Elite Bartender!

Elite Bartending School and Event Staffing has become a leader in the industry for high volume bartender training, mixology, and top notch job placement and event staffing for all graduates.

Our History

Elite Bartending School was established in Miami, Florida in 2007. We are a State Licensed Bartending School fully regulated by the Florida Department of Education. In building Elite Bartending School our founders wanted to put together a school unlike any other of its kind, providing a stellar education which was current and providing students with a challenging, and applicable hands on experience behind real bars. We have become the primary example for other Bartending Schools, leading the industry in producing thousands of today’s top bartenders over the years with our doors open for over 10 years out of our original location in Miami Beach. Elite Bartending School’s program is very hands on; doing all lectures and practicing directly at and behind the bar. This provides the ultimate hands on experience for our students and provides all students with amazing nationwide job placement opportunities. All students have access to all of our Job Placement and event staffing opportunities in not only Miami, but throughout the state of Florida in cities such as Ft Lauderdale, Ft Myers, Orlando, West Palm Beach and The Florida Keys. We also continue to work with many bartending schools all across the country providing job placement for those who have a plan to move out of the area.
