Bar Service

All alcohol must be provided and served by our licensed bartenders at Lakeside Occasions. We offer options including open bar and host/cash bar for beer and wine, as well as a signature drink option and a champagne toast. We will provide a bar menu upon request. We do not allow hard liquor (aside from what’s in the signature drink) or shots.

*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.
