We are UWE Bar School society and we aim to teach you about cocktail making, premium spirits and bar skills. Our sessions concentrate on everything from flair to cocktail making. If you take the opportunity to join Bar School you will taste a spectrum of different cocktails, everything from Sex on the Beach to an Espresso Martini. We regularly hold tasting sessions which will introduce you and educate you about different types of spirits, and we'll show you how to manipulate unusual ingredients, such as spices and eggs, to produce less conventional cocktails.
Bar School is for everyone, whether you want to have a few drinks at your own leisure, improve your bar skills or take advantage of the cheap alcohol, our aim is to create a friendly and chilled atmosphere for all students. Although it has been known that attending Bar School improves your chances of getting employed at a bar, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We will indroduce you to some of the best bars and clubs Bristol has to offer, so make your University experience one to remember (until the next morning) and join us for a drink and a laugh.
Bar School hosts a trip to Europe every year with previous members having visited, Amsterdam, Budapest, Prague and most recently, Krakow. The picture above was taken by a member at the absinthe tasting session in Krakow 2014. The trip, although limited to a number of people, is available to all active members that attend the majority of our sessions. Our trip is a prime opportunity to vist places abroad and have a great time.
