Before you can become a bartender, check your local state laws for specific requirements, like age requirements or certification classes. If you meet these requirements, consider going to bartending school to learn skills like how to mix cocktails or pour liquor. Alternatively, start out as a barback or cocktail waiter at a local bar, which can give you hands-on experience working in a bar setting. Then, find work as a bartender in establishments like restaurants or music venues, and practice making drinks for people as often as you can.
