Bartending School San Jose
ABC is the largest privately owned bartending school system in the United States. Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977. Bartenders are known for their ability to make great money while meeting new people and having lots of fun at their jobs. Look around you at the number of liquor serving establishments and the number of bartenders (full-time and part time) that it takes to staff these establishments.

Look at the great cities listed on the map page and in the school locator where Tony has opened schools. As you can see, all these cities are hospitality oriented, which means lots of restaurants, hotels, country clubs, night clubs and bars. Now what does that mean for ABC graduates? Opportunity!
