Bartending School in Philadelphia & NJ

At Mixology Wine, we have a very diverse group of students, from college students, to construction workers, to athletes, and they're all very different personalities, from 18-70+, with very different ways of expressing themselves. Bars themselves, also have a personality, a feeling, and an experience they're trying to convey, from a cool, dark, beer bar with amazing mussels, to a tucked away craft cocktail bar with 1920s glassware, or a fast dynamic nightclub with fire breathing flair bartenders.

The Mission of Mixology Wine is to provide you with the foundation to really express who you are, through where you work. When you've got the fundamentals of bartending mastered to a very high level, you can just relax, focus on your customers, and help them express who they are.  Give them something they've never tried, but you know they'd love.  Introduce them to someone.  Be friends with them for life. Training is what makes it all possible. And it's what we do the best. Be friends with them for life.
