Best in the city!

We believe that you learn to bartend by actually getting to do it first hand. This way you know your stuff, inside and out.

Our students pass with at least a 90% overall testing average, unlike other schools where a 70-75% average will do.


The team at Elite Bartending School in Pittsburgh focuses heavily on this skill and it is integrated into every part of our curriculum.

This ensures that along with the drink knowledge and bar fluency, our graduates have all the customer service skills they need to succeed.

What Our Graduates Say

“I took classes in June and by August I was working at the first bar I applied to!! Thanks so much for all of your help! Amazing school with wonderful classes. The instructors care about your education and will drill you on anything you don’t understand until you are making the drinks in your sleep!”

Chris Salazar

“Great experience! Loved my instructor Chris. He gave us a lot of insight and stories that would help when you get out in the real world. I def recommend this place if you are debating whether or not to come here. All the staff is very friendly, always a smile on their faces, and just a fun environment to come to.”

Grace Ann Rupprecht

“Elite Bartending School helped me learn (very quickly) everything I needed to be able to bartend. The classes were hands-on and flexible, which I am very grateful for! Not even a week after graduating, I was hired where I wanted to work. because of great instructors, I am officially out of the retail rut! Thank you!”
