The area of bartending is constantly evolving and the requirements for professionals ever more demanding. Our approach is to combine theoretical education with practical training and brings out the best in new bartenders and barmaids or helps those who are already in the industry to evolve further. In Bartenders International School of Bartending® we do not simply teach how to ‘mix’ a cocktail but we rather share our philosophy and our passion for the art of mixology.

After the course our graduates will be able to operate and serve to the highest industry standards with the know-how to create and present internationally famous cocktails. They will also have the skills to create new cocktails or evolve existing ones. By the end of the training course each student receives certification and the Bartenders’ manual.

Η καλύτερη σχολή στην Ελλάδα όσον αφορά το κομματι του Bar σε όλους τους τομείς του. Οικείο περιβάλλον μεγάλες απολαβές οσον αφορά των γνώσεων και της εμπειριας. Εξειδικευμένες γνώσεις πάνω στον κόσμο των cocktail αλλά πάνω απ' όλα άριστη μεταδοτικοτητα των γνώσεων . Ανεπιφύλακτα η καλύτερη επιλογή.!

The best quality meets the best smiles! bARTenders... The Professionals.
I recommend it to all the friends of the bar scene.Truly it was a unique experience with skilled professionals of the field.I thank all the people of the Bartenders.gr for the important and advanced training they offered me.
In my opinion, the most complete bartending program in Athens. Bar theory and practice, bartending philosophy, recipes and techniques. A completely irrelevant fellow will gain a valuable experience in order to support himself behind the bar in just a few days time! On the other hand, a made bartender will have the chance to master and evolve his art, as well as complete his techniques and increase his knowledge. A waterfall of new flavours , combinations and ideas! The instructors stay with you, and take you step by step to the best you care to reach.
One of the best bartending schools in Greece highly recommended!
(Original) Ο,τι καλύτερο για κάποιον που ξεκινάει τώρα πάνω στον τομέα του μπαρ, για κάποιον που ήδη δουλεύει και θέλει να εξελιχθεί, και για κάποιον που απλά θέλει να ανέβει στο επόμενο level... Εξαιρετική δουλειά από τον δάσκαλο Αχιλλέα Καραουλάνη και την ομάδα του. Το έχετε πάει αλλού... Πολλά μπράβο σε όλους... (ENG) The best for someone who is just starting out in the bar industry, for someone who is already working and wants to evolve, and for someone who just wants to get to the next level ... Great job by teacher Achilles Karaoulanis and his team . You have gone elsewhere ... Many congratulations to everyone ...
As a foreigner and a professional Coming across the Atlantic Ocean, from Brazil till Greece, I was able to realize through private training in Bartenders.GR, what usually you don’t open your eyes for so easily. The teacher, Achilleas Karaoulanis, will guide you from the beginning of the history of mixology, with a complete program of theory, techniques, recipes, practice and what’s new out there in the world of bartending. Besides being the only school in Athens with mixology lessons in English, you also have the opportunity to do it in private, which I would recommend for those that wants to learn in a shorter time or for those who wants to have more support and attention throughout the lessons. Additionally, for me, the difference about the school and also the teacher, is that the student will have truly insight information on how each cocktail were made originally, since he will be relating with an active instructor that has traveled the world. Also, he will be facing a new world of creativity involving the paladar, the sense of smell, the tact, the sight and the hearing. You will learn that the slightest detail will matter in the world of bartending, and on the top of all, you will be doing this in the nicest environment of the school, where there is a full set of the best spirits, liquors, syrups, spices, herbs, equipments and all you need to begin your new profession or develop what you already know. So, as a student of advanced level, I would definitely recommend Bartenders.GR International Bartending School, because for sure I can say I found a piece of my heart, soul and also a friend over there. 🇬🇷♥️🇧🇷
