Beer, Wine and Liquor Options

Occasions does not sell or serve alcohol.  Please refer to The Cliff Restaurant Libations Package for service of alcohol.  Parties exceeding a guest count of 75 require a second bartender at an additional fee. The Cliff offers separate Libations packages for beer and wine or full bar on a per person basis (rather than consumption by the drink) so that you will know in advance your total bar cost. We don’t want you to have any unwanted surprises! The Cliff welcomes the opportunity to create special Libations packages to meet your desires.

“The bar hosted a great selection of beer, wine, and liquor. It was set up in a sophisticated way and the bartenders were professional and efficient.”  – Kelly
