Hi hi, it's me again. I just got hired at the Lake House in Canandaigua! It is a very prestigious hotel with a restaurant, several bar areas, a spa, etcetera. The bar and restaurant areas are open to the public, so anyone can come to see me there if you so wish to do so! This place is very difficult to get hired at, so this is a huge victory for me. It's an astonishingly beautiful establishment with an up-close view of the lake, and I am very excited!
So to sum up, I have two jobs starting this Spring - one at the Monroe Golf Club, and one at the Lake House in Canandaigua; and it's all thanks to Nikki Ribis - my amazing bartending instructor and best friend, who inspired me and helped me get through bartending school, amongst other things.
For anyone interested in bartending, I highly recommend the Bartenders Professional Training Institute in Henrietta. Both of the jobs I was hired for required at least a year of previous bartending experience, and I was hired without any previous work experience because I took this 40 hour class. It was also a TON of fun.
Cheers! Here's to a thrilling and prosperous summer!!
Gina is a really great teacher! I would recommend this class to anyone who is serious about taking your bartending game to the next level! Thanks again, Gina!
My instructor Gina was great! She was efficient and knowledgeable about the business I learned more than just how to mix drinks. It was educational but Gina also made it fun!
My instructor Gina was great, she made the class super fun and was extremely helpful in getting me my first job working in a bar after completing the course. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone seriously looking to get into bartending.
I have to say that I had an amazing time taking the Sunday course. The instructor, Gina Rojas, was extremely diligent, personable, and insightful. She didn't just teach us how to make drinks, she gave us insight on real-life experiences and made sure all of the students in the class knew how to navigate certain situations. She also made all of the students excited to go to the 8 hour class every Sunday. I, with complete certainty, feel ready to go out in the workforce as an informed bartender. And I owe that to the fabulous Gina Rojas. I absolutely 100% recommend everyone take the Sunday course with her! Thanks again!
Awesome place to learn a trade where you can always make money!
This school is accredited by the NYS Board of Education. During your 40 hours of hands on training (taught by extremely knowledgeable and friendly instructors) you learn to make tons of drinks, drink making techniques, about different spirits, you get to pour actual beer from a tap, and you get the ServSafe Alcoholcertification! The classroom set up is amazing and comfortable and there is a real, working bar that you get to work behind! There is also a placement assistance network of bars that are seeking knowledgeable and trained graduates!
Bartenders Professional Training Institute is the best and only way to go if you really want to learn to bartend and make a ton of money doing it! You learn way more than you ever could training on the job!
