About Us

Founded by Ray Foley, Publisher of BARTENDER® Magazine, the first magazine for, by and about bartending and on-premise.
Ray was a bartender for over 20 years. He has worked at 4-Star Restaurants and created the first instructional bartending video.

Foley is the author of several cocktail, humor and bartending books, including “Bartending for Dummies”. He is always thinking of new bartending ideas and is the bartender’s bartender!

For the next generation of College Students

The Bartenders Foundation provides an opportunity to help deserving individuals become professional bartenders.

This is our opportunity to give back to an industry that has given us all so much. We believe in helping others reach their aspirations of being professional bartenders.

Your one stop for all your bartending needs: Bar Books, Bar Videos, Bar Tools, Bar Equipment, Bar Supplies, Bar Novelties, Package Specials and much more! http://www.Bartender.com

Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.
