Our mission is simple, provide clients with cannabis experience presented in a classy and high-end fashion.

Can I have High Bar at my event?
High Bar experiences can be provided in an event space during a private event, corporate event, or social event (festivals, fundraisers, concerts, and more). Depending on the location of your event (for example: town, city, or province), some experiences will not be available. When booking High Bar, our sales rep will confirm what you can, or can't provide, depending on the location, and the type of event you are hosting.
Does having High Bar put a licensees liquor licence at risk?
We have created procedures making sure that the licensees follow all the existing legislations, and regulations (from Liquor Licence & Control Act) guidelines currently set in place. High Bar does not provide any services that go against any rules, laws or regulations (Liquor Licence & Control Act, Cannabis Control Act, and Smoke-Free Ontario Act) that would put any licensees liquor license at risk.
"A licensed establishments may have their own house policies prohibiting legally-purchased cannabis beverages from being allowed/consumed in their establishments during events where liquor is served." - Eligibility Officer, Licensing and Registration Branch at the AGCO
It's important to understand that licensees are at higher risk when allowing guests to bring their own cannabis into their licensed establishment. On average 20-30% of guests will bring their own cannabis to the event, unregulated and possibly even illegal cannabis on-site, putting the licensees liquor licence at risk. Having the High Bar, not only removes that risk but also adds a layer of safety for the guests, and the event host, preventing overconsumption. High Bar will assist licensees on how to comply with all requirements under the LLCA, and its regulations.
"The LLCA regulates the sale, service, delivery, consumption and possession of liquor in Ontario. Licensees must comply with all requirements under the LLCA and its regulations. Licensees may make business decisions about how they achieve compliance under the LLCA and any other obligations they may have beyond the LLCA requirements." -AGCO Customer Service

Not only was the bar itself beyond stunning, but the High Bar staff were so efficient and amazing to work with. They were happy to answer any and all questions we had making the process of working with a relatively new vendor very easy and pleasurable. I would HIGHly recommend High Bar for your next event!

Lucas Margulis always had an infinity for the entertainment and events industry. As early as his teens, he could often be found producing and emceeing events across Ontario for other entertainment companies. Years later he naturally developed a desire for entrepreneurship, launching his brand PURE Entertainment. His love for running a business and inspiring change continued throughout multiple endeavours that carried him through the live events, entertainment, fashion, and now the Cannabis industries.
Lucas saw an opening within the events industry, an opportunity to introduce cannabis to events in a unique way. “Cannabis was something being consumed, but was always hidden,” Lucas said. The idea of HIGH BAR came to fruition in 2015, but was a slow process in building as Canada’s legalization was only made official in 2018. Evolving the business and services as the Canadian laws changed, Lucas made sure to focus on the safety of cannabis, yet the elegance in which it could also be consumed at events.
Educating clients, and contradicting the stigma became the leading factors behind HIGH BAR. Their first official event in 2018 made HIGH BAR the first in Canada to offer such services. Now, HIGH BAR is bringing elegance, awareness, and busting through the stigma of cannabis. In 2019, they added a vape bar tap, elegant mobile trays, consumption lounges, certified budtenders and cannabis sommeliers, as well as cannabis catering services.
