The speakeasies of Prohibition New York gave birth to some of the most famous cocktails ever mixed. We honor the creative spirit of these bartending pioneers. Each of our founders have owned or managed sucessful bars in New York City. Their guidance will take your bartending to the next level, give you the skills & tools future employers are looking for, and help you stand out in this incredibly competitive job market.
Prohibition Spirits Bartending Academy is owned and operated by Thomas Sullivan (owner Bar 13), Christopher Lee (owner Parkside Lounge), Laurence Blum (former owner 116), & Giovanni Geraca (head instructor).
In addition to our comprehensive bartending course, we offer continuing education in wines, spirits, and specialty cocktails, job placement services, & the opportunity to work behind an actual bar, serving real customers while you learn.
