will flair tools and kit provided there, all that incurs in fees or we got to pay extra
on top can anyone who doesnot know anything about bar-tendering will get adequate knowledge and training to be a bartender after training?
I've been to EBS course in Phuket in January 2013. This school is just perfect. I knew a lot of beautiful people and i made friends for life. I had a lot of fun and the events were amazing ! While having fun and enjoying the paradise i studied really hard cause the course was over my expectations. Every day you practice behind the bar, learn cocktails, study theory about spirits, flair without break and every week there are tests and exams to keep your mind active and prepared but thanks to this you'll finish EBS with the best bartending preparation EVER ! I had the time of my life and at the same time i learned a profession that i love. The sentence that i always say is : I'd like that i didn't pass the exam just to do it another time :) ! If you are thinking to be a Bartender or you just like the idea to be one go to EBS and i'm sure u'll have the time of your life.
Thanks again to everyone that made my experience unique. EBS I MISS U !

My best 4 weeks of my life!!! I wouldn't change it for nothing. The people and the school! It was a tuff education and you had to study hard but it was totally worth it. I stayed and worked for two months, not so good pay but a very good experience!! Hughs and Kisses to my friends!!
Negative things first: the quality of the barkit could have been better when thinking about it's price.
But anyway, the course in London was amazing and I really miss the school and all the people. Teaching was good and the teachers just kept on pushing us to work harder and better, which really worked! But honestly I can say that it was the most difficult school I've went to.
In addition to all the things I learned and experienced, I got many new friends from the course and that's like a crown for the course.
Those people and EBS have a special place in my heart.
The course I had in London was amazing! Of course, it was quite expensive, the hostel we lived in was so poor that getting used to it took 2 weeks, and when I got home I noticed that the quality of the overly expensive barkit I bought was rubbish... But all of those things don't matter anything when thinking about the awesome month I had. Staff both at the hostel and at school was great, instuctors were super friendly and fun but also demanding enough to make students do well. Studying was definitely hard work but now I know so much about cocktails and the bar industry that it was all worth the effort. Other students were the icing on the cake - I made good friends during the month and all in all I miss the school, people in London and even the hostel. Wish I could do it all over again!

The school itself was good. Staff was well prepared. Managing team also organized after-class activities and some parties. I recognize this schools as a great place to become a professional bartender. However personally I found some drawbacks: firstly, it's way too expensive given the fact that the school is set up in Phuket, Thailand; secondly, learning tools such as flairing bottle and starting bartender's kit was ridiculously expensive (it's possible to get all the stuff online more than twice cheaper!!!); thirdly, student were not allowed to practice flairing with school equipment and were forced to get flairing bottles from school.
Due to very intense schooldays I learnt a lot and I still still remember pretty much everything. The school did not only cover drinks but also flairing and history of spirits which was good. Only thing that could be included in my mind is some winetasting and history etc.
Also very friendly and helpful teachers and you could buy a barkit at the school.
Amazing friends from the hostel experience, you all become like a crazy family
HEY! I HAVE PASSED THE COURSE IN PHUKET. AND NOW I CAN SAY I AM A BARTENDER. IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ME BECAUSE I MET MANY NEW FRIENDS WHOM STILL WE ARE CONNECTED AND I AM PROUD TO KNOW THEM.
AFTER I GO BACK TO MALAYSIA I FOUND A BARTENDER JOB IN A FAMOUS CLUB WHICH WAS ALL FUN AND THE INCOME WAS QUITE FINE FOR A TRAVELER.
Hey, i have done the course in London, class of April, it was one of the most intensive courses that i have done. The teachers are serious abut what they do and how they do it. Its a new experience that can open new ways for you, can make you wish to explore and discover new things.
In the same time you have the fun of your life and make a lot of new friends ;)
For the London guys, long live room 11.

I was in the Phuket school in January 2012 and it was the best time of my life. The people were amazing, school was in a great spot, only a few minutes from the beach and from the main party street. The Instructers were very informative and helpful, happy to answer any questions even outside of class.
The school also organised a number of extra-curriculum trips, including Phi Phi Islands and Elephant trekking. All of this added to an amazing experience. 4 weeks taught you how to be a great bartender, but you needed to work for it. It was not a walk in the park, but very rewarding. I would definetly reccomend this course for anyone who is interested in the Bar trade. Maybe Flair could be expanded a bit, but maybe that was my class being taught by a man who admitted that he didn't flair. Either way was fun and we still learnt a lot of tricks. If you are even slightly interested, go for it, you won't be disappointed!
