Welcome to the Local Bartending School in Oregon, where we dive into the rich history of bartending in this vibrant state. With a focus on cities like Portland, Eugene, and Salem, our school is strategically located to provide aspiring bartenders with the skills needed to thrive in Oregon's dynamic bar scene.

Oregon's unique bartending license regulations, particularly the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) permit, ensure that our students are well-prepared and compliant with state-specific alcohol service laws.

As we explore the most populated and fast-growing neighbourhoods, you'll discover the prime areas for bartending opportunities, from the eclectic Pearl District in Portland to the lively downtown scenes in Eugene and Salem. Our program doesn't just teach you how to mix drinks; it immerses you in the culture of Oregon's bartending world.

We emphasize the importance of knowing the local scene, from the iconic cultural events like the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to the high-energy sports games, providing our graduates with opportunities to earn extra income.

When it comes to crafting cocktails, we cover the essential drinks that define Oregon's bartending landscape, including the Marionberry Mule and Oregon Pinot Noir Spritz. Learn the art of garnishes and the specific glassware that distinguishes you as a skilled bartender in the local market.

At the Local Bartending School in Oregon, we're not just teaching a skill, we're cultivating a passion for the craft in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Join us, and let's shake up the Oregon bartending scene together!

Oregon State requires Service Permit for bartenders

    • You will not be required to have one if you are applying for or have a liquor license in your own name. But if you are 18, 19, or 20 years old, you can get a minor service permit and then you may pour, serve, and draw alcoholic beverages only in areas of the business not prohibited to minors where alcohol service is secondary to food service.
