Bar Service

All alcohol must be provided and served by our licensed bartenders at Lakeside Occasions. We offer a cash bar with optional host contribution – and serve beer and wine, as well as a selection of 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 pre-mixed cocktails) or shots/shotguns.

*It is mandatory that a security officer be present when alcohol is served. The host is responsible for payment.
