Professional Bartending School

The Professional Bartending School opened in Nashville in 1992, and has been under the direction of David Edwards since then. Due to the central location of our school, we are only a 15 to 20 minute drive from most areas of Nashville.

Professional Bartending School of Nashville is licensed by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. We are a state-licensed trade school and have trained over 10,000 people, of all ages and backgrounds, for a rewarding career in bartending.

As a state-licensed trade school, we operate in a professional and ethical manner. All of our websites meet the licensing requirements for our school. We are proud of our school and our accomplishments over the last 23 years of training professional bartenders right here in Nashville.

Our Nashville bartending school staff has many years experience bartending in some of Nashville's best establishments. Our Nashville bartender school has placed graduates throughout Nashville and the surrounding areas in great jobs.

Our local campus and students have been featured in many local papers and T.V. stations and most recently was featured on Channel 2 News. Our graduates have also appeared on the CMT Network making drinks on the CMT Top 20 countdown and have appearted on the reality show "The Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search" which highlights bartending and the art of flair bartending. One of the Nashville graduates won the first season!

Why Attend Our Nashville Bartender School?

  • We first opened our doors in 1992. We have placed thousands of graduates in great bartending jobs since opening. The Professional Bartending School of Nashville has never had any complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
  • We have flexible bartending class times in Nashville to fit anyone’s schedule. We have morning, evening, and Saturday classes, as well as a flex schedule where students can attend at their own pace.
  • PBS has a quality job placement assistance program. Our job is not finished until we help place our graduates in great bartending job. Our full time job placement director will work with you until you find a job that’s perfect for you. The Nashville campus has always had more job openings than graduates.
  • With major companies downsizing and good jobs becoming harder to find, bartending is the perfect career. Bars are always busy. People enjoy the bar atmosphere when they are celebrating the good times, or to lift their spirits during the bad times. With this in mind, bartending has been referred to as a “recession-proof” career.
  • Pay is always a consideration when choosing a career. Bartenders are paid an hourly pay plus tips. The pay is usually $5.00 to $10.00 an hour, plus tips. Tips typically average $10.00 to $30.00 an hour depending on the place.
  • While most schools cost thousands of dollars to attend and can take months to complete, Professional Bartending School is only two weeks in length and most of our graduates earn their tuition back in about one week of bartending.
  • The Nashville campus has been named PBSA’s “School of the Year” 13 out of the last 14 years. Our instructors were named PBSA’s “Instructor of the Year” in 2006, 2007, and again in 2010. There is a reason why we are the No. 1 school in the largest chain of bartending schools in the country. We believe in doing two things at the PBS of Nashville campus. We work with every student until they graduate and then we work with each graduate until they find a job. This is why we are successful and that is why we are the best bartending school for you.
