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) due along with bar service fees at least one week prior to the event.

You must sign and return our alcohol and smoking agreement prior to the event or there will be no bar.
