Las Vegas Casino and Bartending SchoolWelcome to the Las Vegas Campus of Crescent School of Gaming and Bartending, the ONLY nationally accredited school in the U.S. What does that mean to you?  That means you have access to PELL Grants and Federally Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans to help pay for your education
just as if you attended any other institute of higher learning.

There is a huge demand for professionally trained Bartenders and Beverage Managers. We have classes day and evening, Monday – Friday.  If you’re looking for a new career in an industry that is recession proof, or you’re looking to enhance your knowledge of the beverage business, Crescent has the curriculum for you.

Our instructors have a wealth of knowledge and experience specific to Las Vegas. With times being tough these days, why wouldn’t you want to learn from some of the most successful beverage managers, mixologists and bartenders the city has to offer?  Crescent, too, brings in some of the biggest names in the business, from brand representatives to spirits founders to mixologists to guest speak and offer tastings and seminars.   Such luminaries include: Tony Abou-Ganim, Bobby Gleason, Gaston Martinez, Tom Bulleit, Ron Cooper, Patricia Richards and Thomas Turner.

Las Vegas, the City that Never Sleeps, has near unlimited opportunities for qualified, professional people at all times of the day or night.  Between the amazing parties thrown during pool season on or off the Strip to the fast-paced action of a jam-packed nightclub, or the making of classic or handcrafted cocktails at a lounge or Speakeasy Downtown, to hotel and casino bars, restaurants and exotic dance clubs, there is a position for every one of our graduates.

Where do our grads work specifically? They’re working at Aria inside the architectural feat that is City Center, at the Las Vegas Speedway, at the Downtown Cocktail Room and Vanguard Lounge, at South Point Hotel, the brand new Cosmopolitan,  and at Hooters Casino,  as well, just to name a few.
