Am I too Old to Start a Bartending Career?
Of course not. High-end hotels, bars, and four to five-star restaurants require bartenders who are capable of conversing with upmarket customers. If you think you can handle conversations about the economy, stocks, businesses, etc., these places will be a great start for your bartending career.
If you are a fan of going to clubs, then find clubs with job openings for bartenders. It depends on what you want. Play with your strength.
However, an upscale hotel, martini bar, and four-star restaurant need a bartender with maturity who can hold a conversation with their posh customers. If you are a sports fan, a sports bar is a great place to see the games and keep up with the scores.
What Can I Expect from a Bartending Class?
Bartending does not only require you to memorize how to mix drinks. There are also other aspects to bartending before you can get in such as having knowledge in the variety of wines, beers, spirits, liquors, human relations, up-selling, alcohol awareness, etc.
