ABOUT US

EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST


With 30+ years’ combined experience in bartending, hospitality management, event production, sales, and marketing, and a passion for outstanding customer service, Lavish Liquid has set a new standard for special event bartending in Vancouver. Since ‘09, we’ve provided the Lavish experience for events of all sizes, from intimate cocktail receptions to festivals serving 100,000.

FUELED BY PASSION


Not only are we great at what we do, but we love doing it. Our passion shines through in our outstanding customer service, meticulous event planning, creative Signature Cocktail creation, and exceptional execution. You don’t have to take our word for it, though — see what our customers have to say.

OUR VISION


To be the premiere provider of event bartending services, creating authentic cocktail bar experiences for our clients and their guests again and again.

THE BEST BARTENDERS & SERVERS


We believe our team of great people is what truly sets us apart. Our mixologists, bartenders, servers, and event hosts come from some of Vancouver’s best bars and restaurants. They are all professionally trained, experienced, and ServingItRight certified.

Every event is different. The bartending and service team play a key role in guest experience. From Hawaiian-themed birthday parties and office Christmas parties to formal corporate receptions and anything in between, there is a Lavish team to suit your event.

ECO FRIENDLY BARS


As a standard practice, we only use compostable straws and a non chemical, alcohol based bar sanitizer. We strive to go as natural as possible including creating house made Italian soda options over using high fructose sodas. All of our cocktails include only fresh pressed, unpasteurized juices, crafted syrups, bitters and even a vegan alternative to egg white. If glassware isn’t a part of your event, let us provide you with our compostable unbranded clear cups so EVERYTHING that goes in your drink from the cup, to the cocktail ingredients, to the straw, can be put in your green bin! We are continuously researching and learning new ways to lower our carbon footprint.

OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM


Jason Schackl

Jason founded Lavish Liquid in 2009. With a vision of a premium event cocktail bar service unlike anything in Vancouver, and over 15 years’ experience in sales and marketing, hospitality, and event management, Jason assembled a team of the best bartenders, servers, and event managers to deliver an outstanding guest experience at hundreds of events.

“What makes Lavish Liquid the best is our people. Passionate, experienced professionals focused on exceeding our clients’ expectations have allowed us to set a new standard for event bartending in the city.”

Chris Chuy
Director of Operations

When Chris first got behind the bar over 14 years ago, he realized an intense passion for beer, wine, and spirits which he turned into a career. Chris has mastered creating a custom cocktail for any event (like the perfect “his and hers” wedding cocktails). He works to understand his client’s vision and execute the perfect party, managing every detail so hosts can enjoy their event stress-free.

“I love what I do because I enjoy putting all the pieces together. Seeing it come through from beginning to end and knowing that we have taken care of every little detail.”
