New York City, the thriving urban core at the heart of the nation’s most populous metropolitan area, is home to thousands of bars. However, there are also thousands of bartenders looking for jobs in Manhattan and the outer boroughs. Professional Bartending Schools of America has a location in the heart of the Big Apple, and we provide our students with job placement assistance. Learn what sets New York apart from other cities by reading on.
24-Hour Public Transportation
Bar culture in New York City thrives in part due to the 24-hour availability of public transportation. Taxicabs are available on nearly every street corner, and most subway lines also run all night long. Since few people in the city drive, DUI’s do not pose as large a public safety threat as they do in more automobile-oriented cities, and New Yorkers can indulge in cocktails more freely.
Late Last Call at Bars
New York is called “The City that Never Sleeps” for a reason—there is always somewhere eat and something to do, from the wee hours of the morning to the latest hours of the night. Unlike bars in most other cities around the country, New York bars are open until 4:00am, which means that bartenders’ shifts last longer and they have the potential to make more money than in other cities.
High Density Development
On the island of Manhattan, space is limited, and almost everyone wants to live in this innermost borough. More than 70,000 people live in every square mile here, and there are countless shops, bodegas, restaurants, and bars in every neighborhood. While you are completing bartender school, there will be no shortage of social outlets for you in New York City.
The New York Bartending School, located on West 39th Street in the heart of Manhattan, has 36 wet bar stations for students to work at spread out over two floors. If you want to learn the latest bartending skills at the nation’s top schools, call Professional Bartending Schools of America today at (513) 542-3500.
