About Alchemy Bar School

The desire to create a community of Professional Bartenders in Cyprus came to practice for the first time on May 2009
when we created the Shakers Moving Bar. After one successful year we decided to open Alchemy Bartending School with
our vision to upgrade the level of bartending in Cyprus.

We are the first well-organized Cyprus company providing

A high level of education, training, expertise, and consultancy in Bartending, Bar Management, and Beverage Management
