NOT NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK
BUT STILL THE COOL KIDS ON THE BLOCK.
Yup, the rumours are true...we get around. And we've been getting around for a while. Chances are you’ve seen us before: slinging the freshest cocktails at a local market, serving up some tasty small plates in your friend’s backyard, or cutting up the DF after working hours.
We like to keep it fresh.
A big part of our ethos is redefining what it means to be at "an event" and pushing the boundaries on where certain events can or can't take place. Turn a back alley in a temporary disco, or a corporate workplace into an intimate space fit for social gathering — that's the kind of event service alchemy we're into.
(& OTHER ENDEAVOURS)

MEET THE MAKER
THIS IS THE STORY.
OF A MAN NOT NAMED BRADY.
Mix together two parts passion, with three parts professionalism, five parts entrepreneur, ten parts friendliness and what do you get? Sugar Water’s favourite cocktail: the Kyo-Jean Chung.
Kyo-Jean began his entrepreneurial journey at a very young age, working alongside his industrious parents at the You and I Cafe, a family coffee shop serving Calgary the finest baked goods and specialty coffee since 1978. Since, he has worked as an entrepreneur in several different industries, including hospitality, permaculture and coffee imports.
In 2015, Kyo-Jean started Sugar Water to explore his love for finely crafted cocktails and passion for bringing people together in great experiences. Over the past 8 years, Sugar Water has evolved from a pop-up cocktail bar to a full-scale events company servicing some of the best events in YYC.
Here at Sugar Water, we attribute our success to Kyo’s knack for befriending talented people in all realms of culinary arts and event planning.
His fresh ideas and commitment to providing inspired service are the backbone of Sugar Water's flavourful ethos.
And...while we're being honest...he's also one of our best mixologists.
