Hey, we're Kyle and Nate, founders of the Nimble Bar Co

We didn’t meet on Tinder, but like many great relationships, we DID meet in a bar…

And in the beginning, things were pretty prickly between us. We didn’t really ‘get’ each other.

But as time passed, we started to develop a sense of team and a synergistic energy behind the bar that we came to be known for.

We started hearing things like “I just got back from [insert big city name here] and no one does it like you guys.”

And slowly it started to click that we had something to offer, something to teach.

We figured if we could help people improve quickly, that they could skip all the awkward years we’d spent figuring it out on our own (and the whole industry would benefit).

The community, expertise, and proven programs to help accelerate your career.

Sure, you could learn a lot by pounding the pavement, working at crusty bars, and crossing your fingers that you might get that bar gig you’ve actually been dreaming of, or …

Start developing your skills methodically, using proven models and systems, and rapidly accelerate your bartending prowess.

In other words, learn potent life skills (that happen to pay the bills).

Since bartending is ultimately about connecting with people, we should probably tell you a bit about who we are…
