Bar Service

All alcohol must be provided and served by our licensed bartenders at Lakeside Occasions. We offer options including host bar, cash bar, or a combination of the two. We allow beer and wine, as well as a selection of premium pre-mixed cocktails and champagne. We will provide a bar menu upon request. We do not allow hard liquor (aside from what’s in the signature cocktails) or shots/shotguns.

*It is mandatory that a security officer be present when alcohol is served. The fee is $150 (subject to change).
