Frequently Asked Questions

Answering some of your frequently asked questions.

Do you supply the alcohol?

All alcohol is purchased by the customer as the Canadian liquor laws prohibits the sale of alcohol from a mobile vehicle. This also eliminates the possibility of a mark up on the alcohol and allows the host to fully customize their drink selection. In saying this, we will, however, provide a detailed grocery list upon request.

How much alcohol will I need?

Sway Bar will provide a consultation that will give an accurate amount of alcohol needed based on the number of guests at your event.

Will I need a permit?

A Special Occasion Permit (SOP) is required any time alcohol is offered for sale anywhere other than in a licensed establishment or a private place (such as a private property or home). For more information regarding permits please visit
