Our Facilities

Maryland Bartending Academy believes in the old saying, “Practice hard, play great.” That is why we train our students using a fully functional bar stocked with the latest equipment and tools used in the bartending industry. Check out the gallery to see actual videos and pictures of our training facility.

Our bar-like atmosphere will give you a “real sense” of on-the-job training. It allows you to experience exactly what it feels like to be behind a completely functional bar. You will be training with all the latest, high-tech equipment and tools used in the industry today.

The school also makes use of video cameras at each station to record you as you learn. When you review the tape, you instantly see what you can do to better yourself – and that means you learn faster. Click here for an example.

After you have completed your course, you will feel at home behind any bar – and provide excellent service to your patrons while enjoying your job. Of course, this type of service will also pay off immediately in gratuities and salary.
