And at the same time, you will be able to party and have fun with the groups who travel with Life is a Beachparty as travellers. That means new people every week :) The best part is we have designed the school hours to be in the afternoon (3 pm - 9 pm) so you have plenty of time to go to the beach & recover from some crazy nights out in Ios! Our main aim is to combine the bar school course with an amazing holiday experience on the island paradise that is Ios. We have collaborated with the Sweden Bar Management company from Sweden.

About Sweden Bar Management

About Sweden Bar Management

Sweden Bar Management started with a concept from three guys who have all worked as bar school instructors all over the world in countries such as Thailand, Spain, USA and Sweden teaching and consulting people to become bartenders. During their 30 combined years in the business and their level of expertise, started what today is now the Sweden Bar Management. With over 2500 examined students to date they are one of the most experienced bar school companies in the world. Today their main offices are located in the Swedish mountains, Sälen and in sunny Miami, Florida. Other than instructing Bartenders they all work for well-known cocktail bars and clubs within Sweden and Norway. In 2015 they also started a recruitment company called helping students and new bartenders to get jobs within the industry. The guys from Sweden Bar Management now come together with The Ios Bar School, excited to teach people from all over the world and have an awesome time in Ios, Greece!



Peter Rönnlund, Founder & Head Teacher, Sweden

Started working in the business as a 17 year old in his hometown of northern Sweden. As a 20 year old decided to move to Thailand to start up a bar with his friends that became the hottest bar for Scandinavian people in Phuket and still is. After a couple of years he gained the experience to become a teacher for the well-known Bar School Academy in Spain & Miami where he was the head teacher for five years. From all that experience and connections made in Sweden & Miami he together with his friends started Sweden Bar Management and has been running it ever since. During the winter in Sweden he teaches Scandi's and works as an Entertainment Manager for the famous Ice Nightclub in Sälen, Sweden.

Andreas Stattin, Founder & Administrative Manager, Sweden

Being a Bar & Club Owner for several years he decided to step aside and start Sweden Bar Management and together with his knowledge created the material for the bar school. Andreas role within the company is writing the course plans and managing bookings from the Office in Scandinavia. Along with running the Sweden Bar Management office he is also a bartender for the well-known cocktail bar F6 Oslo, Norway.

Mattias Järveläinen, Teacher, Sweden

Started his career as a primary teacher who got into the bar business travelling through Asia and educated himself as a bartender. After that he went to Greece and early on got the chance to run a very successful bar. After Greece he went to Sweden and Spain to work for several bars. When he worked in Spain, he met Peter & Andreas and started following them working as a bartender in different venues. With his experience in teaching it became natural for him to help out during classes and soon became an apprentice and now teacher. Mattias has an educational way of teaching together with the experience and stories you must hear to believe.



Paulina "Paow" Danielsson, Swedish Blogger & TV-Celebrity

"I first did the bar school as a fun thing to meet new people and no thoughts of working as a bartender. Sweden Bar Management's way of getting you to listen and all the experienced stories made me interested to really start working as a bartender."

Julia Stjerna, Architect

"I have been through 8 different schools. At the moment I study at university and from that done all different studies. During all my times of study I have always ignored the teachers and focused on my own studies even now in university This means I have had a lot of teachers but all of them miss what the guys from Sweden Bar Management have. They are educational, fair, funny and their priority is everyone in the class at the same time. The schedule was intense but they made sure teaching each and every one of us To take this class is good because you never think that there is so much to learn and having fun at the same time"

Magnus Hansson, Bartender

"Doing the Sweden Bar Managemet course got me hooked to become a bartender and have since then worked in Sweden and Spain as a bartender all year around The teachers of Sweden Bar Management are the best teachers you can imagine. The have so much knowledge and teaching experience no one else can give you At any time I would take their classes again just for fun!"

Kian Avar, Bartender & TV-Celebrity

"You see a big enthusiasm around the subject of bartending when the teachers talk. All the teachers treat the students with respect and give each student the time they need I really got the time I needed and am forever grateful for helping me become a bartender You are going to have lots of fun with the hilarious and positive teachers. Do the LIABP Barschool – you will not be disappointed"
