Meet Joe Bradley

The Origins Of A Master Craftsman

The Professional Bartending School of America in Baltimore, MD, introduced Joe to a newfound passion. Working in clubs and bars cultivated gifting; even more, the music, good vibes, and the exhilarating inspiring feeling gave him the courage to move to Atlanta to begin the business venture that would become the company we enjoy today.

After moving, Joe started by attending Professional Bartending School of America, in Atlanta, GA, and that experienced enhanced the craft even more. While attending the bartending school and working in the field Joe ended up meeting one of the most well-known DJs in Atlanta, DJ Cool Breeze. Cool Breeze would later hand Joe the studio/event center needed to start the company.

“I noticed that proper training on the appropriate ways of making drinks, such as adequate mixing techniques and alcohol to mixer ratio in the field, was greatly needed. So using the teaching platform within the bartending school where I now teach gave me the ability to do so — which is where the online bartending classes I teach, were born.

Now we are the number one Bartending company in Atlanta. We serviced events to Coca-Cola, CNN, Porsche Hennessy, iFly, Slutty Vegan, GA Tech, Emory University, and Celebrities.”

– Joe Bradley
