Some of My Peeps...

Me & Mike Chillin' at the Fieldhouse
"Dave knows more about the bar business than anyone I've ever met. He came in and trained my bartenders, hired me two new ones who have been rock stars, and he reduced my costs, all in about a span of 7 days. I'm seriously amazed at what he can do in a bar." 

-Mike Banducci.
Owner of Fieldhouse
Blackhawk, CA
”Hi Dave, I can’t tell you how excited I am that I took your course. 

I landed a job 23 days after I signed up at an Irish Pub 2 miles from my house.

I used to work construction and I hated it. Plus I only made $20 per hour. Now I’m making $50 per hour doing what I love and meeting new people every day and night.

Thank you so much! Hope we keep in touch.

Let Me Ask You This, Can You...
  • ​Pour liquid into a glass? 
  • ​Load and unload glasses from a dishwasher?
  • Shake liquor and ice back and forth to make liquid cold? (just like the Shake Weight)
  • Treat guests kindly with a smile?
  • Lift objects up to 100 lbs. (if not, you can get a co-worker to help)?
  • Cut fruit with a knife?
  • Multitask? (like when you text and drive, except this is safe)
  • Memorize a drink menu? (not as hard as you think)
  • Move quickly and with purpose?
  • Show up to work on time?
  • Tell a guest he/she has had too much to drink? (I show you how to do this)
  • Work well with others?
  • Stay up late? (Unless you want to work only lunch shifts)
  • Stand on your feet for 5 - 6 hour shifts
If You Answered Yes to the Majority of These Questions, 
Then I Have News…You Can Bartend
"Man I stuck with the program 100%. It took 30 days from the day I purchased it to land not one, but TWO bartender positions...I plan to continue the use of the course to keep growing, to keep learning. You made me a believer from day one. So to you, Dave, I say thank you!

-Anthony Bulnes
"How did I do it? I just followed Dave's plan, and after a few weeks I got hired at a busy corporate restaurant. My very first shift by myself, I walked with $268. I couldn't believe it. I just kept staring at the money in my hands and thinking to myself, Man, I actually did it."

-Nathan Franks
Cheese Cake Factory

At this point, I bet 
you have some questions...
Do you know why 5% of the people hold 90% of the wealth?They take action while everyone else is hiding under the table. If you start learning to bartend now and start turning in your resumes to bars while everyone else is waiting, who do you think they're going to hire when it comes time? Yep, you!

That’s hard to say, really. It all depends on your drive to get the job itself. For those that take my course seriously, they usually get a job within 21-28 days of starting the course. The fastest time one of my students got a bartending job that netted him $70,000 in his first year? 9 days. To really get the most out of this course, you’ll need to take massive action. In the end, you’ll reap the rewards from a focused 21 day action plan.

1) Been in the bar industry for 25+ years; 2) My students are currently earning millions of dollars in tips collectively; 3) I've trained hundreds of bartenders as a manager & bar consultant; 4) I run my own bar and consulting business which hires bartenders all the time. Hope that helps.
Being shy is the EXACT reason you should become a bartender. When I was in high school and college, I was a pretty good basketball player and people thought I was a stuck-up A-hole because I never spoke to anyone. Truth is, I was PAINFULLY shy. I'm talking sitting-in-a-corner-sucking-my thumb shy. Without my career as a server and bartender, I'd never have developed the social skills to open up and talk to people. Believe me, if I did it, you definitely can.
No problem, I gotchu. Inside the course is a new bonus section, The Ultimate Guide to Memorizing Cocktails, which includes the Triple Imprint Method which helps your brain retain cocktail recipes like magic. Trust me, you are going to love it.

This answer varies depending on the type of bar you work at and which shifts you work. From dumpy restaurant bars to high-end nightclubs to lunch shifts during the week vs. night & weekend shifts, the amount per shift can vary from $50 - $1,000. But if you're going to pin me down to an actual answer, an average bartender working at an average bar will earn about $150 on the weeknights and $300 on the weekend nights.

The bartenders that make the most money work and sleep late. If the bar is closing at 2AM, you’re looking at going to bed sometime around 4AM and getting up somewhere around noon. However, because you can earn $30-60 per hour, many bartenders only work about 25-30 hours per week.
You'd better believe it! I only succeed if you succeed, and my reputation to help people on their path to becoming a bartender is more important to me than a few dollars (*see below for Guarantee details)
How about for as long as you're alive? And your kids can even use it after you're gone. Sound good? Perfect!

Real Emails From Real Students

Adam Jacobson From St. Louis, MO


I am writing this email as a way to say THANK YOU for helping me land not one but TWO job offers from high volume, well-established bars in my area - and it's been less than 3 weeks since I started your course (and I'm just getting started!)

Your step-by-step instructions eliminated the guesswork, freeing me to focus all my energy on creating a kickass resumé (using your resumé templates!) and study the drinks.

One of the bars that extended a job offer told me I had the best resumé they had ever seen (thanks in no small part to you) even thought I have extremely limited experience.

The GM of the other bar told me I gave him the best interview since he started working there - and YES, studying your interview prep and knowing which questions to ask definitely helped!

I have never written an email testimonial before because I typically find them unbelievable and quite frankly have never been grateful enough to, however your course has made getting a kickass bartending job a cinch!

It feels good knowing that I have CHOICE as to where I work, and that I'll be able to start my bartending career at a TOP SHELF establishment where the management respects my contributions and treats me fairly.

Forever grateful,


Jessica Watkins <jesswatkins7519@...                                                                       Thurs, Oct 25, 2:49 PM

Hi Dave,

I did it! They called me today. I got the job. I start training on Monday.

I can't thank you enough. Even though I was doubting myself the entire way. I did exactly what you said to do and stuck with the process and it totally worked. I killed it in the interview (their words, not mine) and they said they were willing to take a chance on me because of my passion and enthusiasm, just like you said.

Thanks again. Gotta go study the cocktail menu they gave me. I'll keep you updated how it goes. :-)

Thank you so much Dave your course is amazing and has helped me be a better more hard working person and soon to be bartender!

I can't thank you enough for your course. I feel like my whole life has changed. Here's an update:

After going through your course, I got hired at a Mexican restaurant, but then a week later I got a call for an interview from one of the other places I had handed my resume in, and it was a higher volume lounge, and after using your interview secrets, I got hired there and I'm now making $200 - 300 per shift and I LOVE IT!

If it wasn't for you kicking me to get off my ass, I never would have taken action, so thank you again. I owe you big time. I hope we can stay in touch.

Hello Dave!
I wanted to personally thank you for this brilliant course.
I lived in Joshua Tree, Ca with very little job opportunities. When the house I was renting sold, I accepted an offer to rent a room in a home in Northern Virginia. 

I accepted it quickly, knowing I could not sadly afford anything in California. It was me, two large dogs in a small Nissan truck, and a 5x8 Uhaul trailer carrying tshirts, dogfood and art supplies!

As soon as I arrived, I went to Bartending school in Arlington. After two weeks, I was given a roster with half of the links broken or bars permanently closed. Frustrated, I asked for additional help and they told me to just go to Yelp instead of Indeed. Everyone wanted years of experience. Giving up, I took a job as a restaurant runner making minimum wage (7.25 here) and felt useless! 

That's when it happened. I suddenly remembered your course link on my phone I had saved from your YouTube channel before leaving California. I had two hundred dollars left and it took me a second to determine that this was more important than making that phone payment! 

I am almost finished and now on the memorizing part. Your course is So much better than that school! Wow. Not only am I learning from a pro on the intricacies of a working bar, but I also feel I have made a new, supportive friend!

Thank you for your invested time and much Success and Happiness to you and your family-
No longer a struggling newbie,

Hello David I just want to say that I love the program and I watch the cocktails videos everyday and practice every night at home but I wanted to say that after 2 weeks with your program I landed my first Bartender job at the Grand Palms Resort as the assistant bartender and I start next weds for the basic training. Your training along with the sample resume and cover letters AND the job interview training you gave was awesome ...Thanks again this training was priceless... ok now back to the videos !!!!

Hey mate, I got your course on 14 September, so two weeks ago.

Guess what - I landed a gig at one of the most popular nightclubs in Melbourne, and tonight is my second night! Your course gave me the confidence to tell the manager I wanted to be a bartender. I also believe that buying the bartender kit, studying your course material and practicing making drinks at a little party I hosted at my house made everything possible.

I will also continue using your action plan to upgrade my position and opportunities as you suggest.

Thanks and cheers mate,


I'm a bartender!

Hey Dave.

I wanted to send you an email to let you know that I frickin' LOVED your course. After signing up and going through the lessons and practicing the skills that you taught I felt so much confidence going out to get a job.

I turned my resume in to 10 bars got two interviews and was hired 3 days later. I've been working there 2 weeks now and I love it. I can't believe I'm a bartender.

Just wanted to say thanks so much. YOU ROCK! Your course changed my life. And thanks for always getting back to me too. I'll keep you updated.

Laz Lazowska <pupstar@...                                                      Tues, Feb 26, 10:26 AM

I was fed up with my career and needed a change - can be so daunting sometimes, a
person can want to give up and not even try. For 20 years I have been thinking about becoming a bartender. 
By googling and youtubing around I found Dave Allred's Real Barman Course...online,
self-paced AND unbelievably affordable. 

I have found the course super valuable for countless reasons.... but the 2 biggest:

#1. Dave's expertise and the way he shares his knowledge. Straight
forward, easy to understand, fun and backed by excellent resources. #2.
Moral support. I totally feel like I have a master teacher but also a
mentor. I feel like I can reach out to Dave with any question. He is super
quick to respond, always has substantial answers, and ends with
encouragement every time. I am always pumped when I get his emails!

I have worked enough in my life at enough different things and for enough
different people that I can say with certainty that if you follow Dave's
guidance you will be adequately prepared to become a bartender and start your 
new journey. Thanks so much Dave!
