About Us

The Bucks County School of Bartending was established in January of 1999. The Casino Dealer School was added in August of 2010.  Currently we are the only school whose curriculum and programs have been approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools and have been verified by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. 

We have a great relationship with all of the area casinos!

We have been a licensed school for over 15 years.  Our bartending and casino school has an excellent reputation throughout the industry.  Local casinos have hired our graduates, and have also hire us to teach hospitality etiquette as well as CPR and T.I.P.S. certify their employees. Our reputation and our relationships with these  casinos solidifies us in the industry. All of our instructors are currently working at these casinos as Floor Managers, Supervisors, and Pit Bosses. They also have teaching degrees and/or have instructed for casinos throughout the country.

Rest assured that you will receive a top notch education from our school
and the cerificate you receive is good in any State or Country.


Denise Mitchell is the owner and the primary instructor at the Bucks County School of Bartending. She put herself through college working as a bartender. Denise has a B.A. in English & Theatre Arts from Arcadia University and is a certified school teacher. After a few years of teaching English, Denise realized that she much preferred working in the bar and restaurant industry and decided to put all of her talents together.

In addition to owning the school, Denise and her husband have owned two bars in the area where they have trained and have given many of their graduates their first start behind a bar. As bar owners they’re teaching from the best perspective and that’s why their graduates make the best candidates for employment.
