We require all groups to obtain a Special Occasion Permit from the LCBO if they want to consume alcohol.  This application takes 7-14 days minimum, and must be submitted to any Toronto LCBO. Special Occasion Permit must be obtained by client, regardless of wine pairing choice. 

Wine, Beer, or service of other Spirits is additional, and there are three basic options: 

  • Sommelier Service - Our sommelier will be on hand to pair, serve and introduce each wine.  
  • Wine Pairing – We will pair and purchase wine for your menu.  
  • BYO - Purchase your own under your Special Occasion Permit from the LCBO at no additional charge.
