In Scott Young you have the best and brightest the on-premise industry the industry has to offer. I've know Scott for more than 15 years and during that time he has remained in the upper echelons of the business. 

He is the man to turn to when training and educated bartenders and servers. His books and training videos are spot-on and widely relied upon in operations large and small. 

I hereby recommend Scott Young and Extreme Bartending without hesitation or qualification for darn near any job that needs to get done. Seriously.


Jason Jelicich
Director at BePresent Enterprises

Scott Young is a man who has had a passion, developed a talent and - perhaps hardest of all - created a sustainable business from both the former. I came to know Scott during the formative years of theprofessionalisation of the bar/ hospitality scene across the US & Australia (where I am based) in the last 80's/ early 90's.

Scott understood that there was a growing market of individuals & businesses that wanted to capture the attention & imagination of their guests through the art & science of showmanship - or flair -bartending.

He developed video series where there was little or none. He developed a website to inspire other and create community. He stood up, used his smarts and made an indelible mark on the development of professional bartending through the 90's and eighties.

Scott's reputation, commitment and passion for what he does has been an inspiration for me and many tens of thousands of others.

He can truly be proud of the impact he has made in his field - and no doubt even outside of his field - as he continues to inspire others to master what they do and thereby learn to love their lives.

Ian Sutherland
Previous student of Scott’s and then Instructor/performer on videos

Scott teaches customer service the right way. Not only does his training series teach the most incredible Extreme Bartending on the planet, it also helps transform its students into customer service magicians.

If you're wondering or debating spending the money on these videos or books, stop it. The skills you gain will pay you back in weeks, if not days.

I Highly recommend Scott and I traveled to Vancouver BC for a weekend Flair course conducted by Scott and his instructors. In one word the experience was AWESOME. They were fun, friendly, professional, engaging, and knowledgeable. As a group and individually they epitomize what bartenders should be. The flair tending was icing.

Vance Campbell
Operations Specialist at Rising Tide Consultants

I have known Scott for almost 25 years, having met him when he was a very energetic young man, seeking a meaningful career in the Hospitality Industry. Scott worked for me at the Granville Entertainment company and The Roxy Cabaret Night Club for many years.

He was the absolutely best employee I have ever hired over the span of my 45 year career in this industry.

He is loyal beyond reproach, is absolutely honest, and above all has integrity. I define integrity as "doing what you say you are going to do by the time you say you are going to do it.” Scott has never made a promise to do something that he did not fulfill.
In business, he is well respected as one of the leading trainers of Flair Bartenders world-wide. His clients bring him back again and again, I suspect, because of his zest to serve.

He is the author of a number of excellent training videos which he markets through his company and has traveled the world inspiring others at multiple Trade shows and in service of business clients.

I highly recommend Scott as an honest, reputable, dependable and trustworthy human, who just happens to be one of the nicest persons I have had the pleasure to meet in my life.

Scott has been in the nightclub and bar business almost as long as I have over 25 years and he is a constant professional and extremely talented in Bartender training and public speaking. Scott has put a lot of time and effort in his training videos and is a joy to watch in his Bartending skills! I would recommend Scott to anyone that needs help with their Bartender training and Mentorship.
