ABC Bartending Schools are located in the LA / Orange County / Riverside area. ABC is the largest privately owned bartending school system in the Nation. Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977.

The Sylvester family has been in the Hospitality industry for three generations. Tony brings you all that experience in his school's curriculum and manual.

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!

Look around at the number of liquor serving establishments in your city and the number of bartenders, both full time and part time, that it takes to staff these operations. Get the picture?

Bartenders are known for their ability to make great money, have fun, and meet people.

Thousands of students are trained and placed every year nationwide by ABC in our professional one week, two week, and three week programs that cover all of the techniques used to become a professional bartender.

ABC also offers all of its graduates free lifetime job placement assistance and free refresher courses from coast to coast at all of its locations.

Remember, to get started just call us at 562-596-7009.
