About Us

Elite Bartending School is located in both Miami Beach and Key West Florida. Elite Bartending School’s goal has always been to give its students a hands on and realistic education in high volume bartender training to get them ready for the fast paced bar scene that major bartending cities like Miami and Key West demand. Taught inside a real Miami Beach nightclub on South Beach and inside Rick’s Bar & Durty Harrys Entertainment complex in the heart of Duval Street, students learn the course in some of the best bar environments around. Elite’s instructors know the industry inside and out, have over20 years of combined high volume bartending experience, and teach all students behind real bars the right way. Elite Bartending School leaves no stone unturned when it comes to challenging and educating students the “Elite” way.

The 40 Hour Program is available in many different class times to fit everyone’s schedule. Elite offers the course in as little as two weeks during 3 different class times. Day Classes (11am-3pm) Afternoon Classes (1pm-5pm) and Evening Classes (6pm-10pm). Elite also offers its weekend class on Sundays (11am-7pm) for five weeks so that those who are busy during the week still have to opportunity to complete the program. Elite Bartending School offers “open bar hours” to all students and Alumni Monday-Friday from 3pm-6pm at the schools so they are able to touch up on their skills behind the bar even when class isn’t in session. And all students are given a lifetime membership to the school once they complete the program. Elite also offers free continuing education workshops to all Alumni in Mixology and Flair once students complete the course too. This helps students stay sharp and current on the always changing bartending scene.

Elite Bartending Schools job placement assistance programs are unlike any other school of its kind. Elite Bartending School has been the major staffing company for bartenders for the Ultra Music Festival for the last 6 years and is responsible for major staffing events such as the Cadillac Golf Championships in Doral for the last few years. Elite also is responsible for staffing its Alumni for professional sporting venues such as the American Airlines Arena for the 2011,2012, 2013, 2014 Miami Heat Home Basketball games. Elite Bartending School Miami Beach and Elite Bartending School Key West also link job placement to all students and Alumni to both Miami and Key West so that students are given great opportunities for work in both of these major bartending cities.
