bar Academy

Our training academy and recruitment agency equips bar staff (from managers and bartenders to waiters and runners) with internationally recognised skills and then assists in placing them in the finest establishments. We offer a range of training programs for bar-specific staff, from entry-level courses through to advanced specifics. The highly-trained graduates then staff all our mobile bars and can be found mixing drinks at the best bars.
