Food & Beverage Training is more than Memorizing Recipes!
Bars To Go Training Institute is different from other food & beverage schools in Jamaica. Bars To Go Training Institute is Jamaica's fastest growing food & beverage institute, because our certified programs are designed to deliver real world results to students who have never worked in the field before by offering a comprehensive list of programmes in the hospitality indusrty:
- Food & Beverage
- Advanced Bartending & Mixology
- Commercial Food Preparation

Unlike other traditional schools that are predominantly focused on teaching basic and out dated programmes we regularly update all our programmes to keep right up to date with the latest trends that are in the hospitality industry today.
Bars To Go Training Institute's 3 P's of Successful Bartending & Mixology!
The common response was that managers didn't look for people who knew hundreds of recipes, in fact, Bars To Go Training Institute identified the top three things that employers looked for, and they became the Institute's 3 P's:
Our flagship Advanced Bartending & Mixology program was built on these three core values, making our Advance Bartending & Mixology graduates the most sought after new bartenders/Mixologist today. The Advance Bartending & Mixology program, quite simply, features the very newest, most relevant and technically accurate training methods in the industry today.
Why Other Bartending Schools don't cut it in the Real World!
With a unified dissatisfaction for the level of respect given to bartending graduates, and with the common vision that a bartender was far more than the graduate of a cocktail course, Bars To Go Training Institute shattered the mold of the traditional bartending schools, by taking our signature Advanced Bartending & Mixology Program inside the industry's hottest bars and creating the first 100% hands on, completely mobile learning environment.
At Bars To Go Training Institute we demand more of our students, and we are committed to providing measurable results to both students and employers. This means as a graduate of the Institute you are more employable than a graduate from any other Bartending School in Jamaica.
Every Bar has a Bars To Go Training Institute Graduate!
They are the bartenders who get the best shifts, work the busiest sections, have the highest sales and make the best tip percentages. As a Bars To Go Training Institute Graduate you will have the knowledge and ability to walk into any bar and in a short time, position yourself to make the best money!
Train in Real Bars not simulated classrooms!
A carpenter would not train with a simulated hammer, why would you train in a simulated classroom? Your bartender/Mixologist training will be more effective if you are behind a real bar before you apply for a bartending/Mixology job. If you have already worked behind a real bar, but think that you are missing out on something, you probably are. Bartending Schools in Jamaica have always taught recipes, now there is a place that will teach you hands on, and hands down the best way to make more money!
The industry's most Qualified Instructors!
Our curriculum is taught exclusively by our own Master Mixologist and head bartenders from the country's busiest nightclubs, lounges, and bars, not old bartending school trainers who have not bartended in years and are not aware of the latest trends. Our trainers do not waste your time with recipes from dusty old mixology manuals, you will learn what is hot today what is going to be hot in the future! We are the market leaders in setting up bars in new clubs and restaurants and have the experience and tools to make you a better bartender or Mixologist.
