the toronto bar school difference: where passion meets profit

By Toronto Bar School, 3/28/2023

Bartending may be the world’s best side hustle. That’s no exaggeration.

How else can you make phenomenal money, while networking, socializing and mixing some of the world’s best cocktails?

I can’t think of anything.

Of course you have to be passionate about cocktails and have a strong work ethic if you’re going to have success behind the bar as a side gig.

We can help with the rest.

The Toronto Bar School difference is that we show you how to successfully bring passion and profit together through our hands-on bartender training program.

Read on to find out how it works.

the heart of toronto bar school's game changing system

So what’s the secret to successful mixology training? It starts with a focus on expertise not experience.

If you’re wondering if there’s really a difference between the two that’s understanable. They are often related, but sadly not always in the bartending world.

I’ve lost count of how many bartenders have applied for jobs working private events for me with tons of experience only to discover they weren’t very good bartenders at all.

In fact, it’s one of the main reasons I started Toronto Bar School. I saw how lacking in mixology expertise the average “experienced” bartender really was.

The biggest earners in this industry are experts at their craft.

If you want to be one so you can start thriving, not just surviving living paycheck to paycheck, you need the Toronto Bar School training program advantage.

Our game changing system focuses on hands-on training, not wasting hours in a classroom learning basic cocktail ingredients and mixing fake drinks using colored water.

We don’t just throw you behind a bar and expect you to pick up the skills you need for succes on the fly though.

Our training may be hands-on, but that doesn’t make it any less comprehensive. In fact, I feel confident in saying our program is much more of a complete package than your average classroom-based school.

We teach expertise behind a real bar so you can earn more, beat inflation, plan that big trip and save for that mortgage down payment.

Let me explain the Toronto Bar School difference.

Unveiling our unique approach and its value

Our unique approach to training begins with a firm belief in the value of the value of real world training.

Think of it this way.

You might take electrical engineering in college, but you also have to combine that with a period of apprenticeship before you can graduate. Why should learning how to be a professional bartender be any different?

We know you’re not signing up for our program to learn how to make better cocktails at your next dinner party. You’re doing it because you want a side gig that can make you tons of extra cash to get ahead. We’re focused on helping you do that.

That’s why we do ALL of our training in a hands-on setting. We beleive there’s no better way to learn than by doing and it gets you where you want to be faster.

Don’t worry, you’ll learn all about shakers, strainers, muddlers and all the tools of the trade.

You’ll also learn the ins and out of managing and maintaining a  busy bar, personal time management in a busy environment and how to deal with different personality types.

Our expert team will teach you all of this behind a live bar, not through theory and classroom projects.

After all, some of the best lessons are learned from the mistakes we make on the job.

There will be times where we ask you to just observe how our expert bartenders operate, but you’ll also have lots of opportunities to practice what you’ve learnt through observation as well.

People learn better when they actually get to try out the new things they’re learning shortly after completing their lessons.

That’s why we carefully choose our training team for their unrivaled level of expertise. These are industry veterans with a wealth of real-world insights to share.

You’re learning from the best in the business and ultimately, that will help you to become one of the best in the business as well.

Bottom line, when you’re better at your job you’ll make more money. Period. Full stop. 

You’ll learn more than just the basic fundamentals offered in classroom training. You’ll gain access to all the insider tips and tricks that you won’t find in a text book giving you an invaluable edge in the competitive bartending world.

learning beyond a classroom

One of the most uniquely valuable things about choosing the Toronto Bar School program is access to people you’ll never meet in a classroom.

The networking opportunities in the bartending world are off the charts and at the private events where you’ll learn the Toronto Bar School difference they’re even more impressive.

Trust me. You will build lasting connections. Yes, that includes your instructors, fellow students and other event staff, but that’s just part of it.

At our private events you’ll meet patrons from all walks of life and many of the people you’ll meet while you work through our hands-on training program will lead to lasting and valuable connections for your future.

There’s every chance you’ll meet people that can help you advance in your 9 to 5 career, not just your bartending side hustle. You may even connect with someone that can hook you up with an opportunity to move on to bigger and better things than your current 9 to 5.

Not only will you earn bigger tips and gratuities because of your unrivaled expertise, you’ll make connections that can boost your day time earning potential big time as well.

Your journey with Toronto Bar School starts with hands-on bartending training, but it doesn’t end there.

affordable training without compromises

Not only is our system a better way to learn than a classroom bartending training program, it’s easier on the wallet. By avoiding the extra expense of renting space for formal classes, we’re able to keep our program costs affordable while offering greater value at the same time.

Our program is about $300 to 400 cheaper than most of our competitors on average. The best part is we don’t make any compromises – you learn everything you would from the other guys and a whole lot more.

Let me sum it up this way.

You’ll learn more than you would in a classroom-based course, be better prepared for the real world of bartending, spend less doing it and you’ll earn more than you would taking one of those tired courses.

Wanting to learn new skills to start a side hustle is one thing, being able to fit it in your budget can be an entirely different prospect.

We make that happen by being your gateway to a wealth of resources and providing open access to the best experts in the industry.

That doesn’t event stop once you finish the course because we’re thrilled to offer our successful graduates instant money making opportunities working at exclusive private events with us.
