Lucas Margulis always had an infinity for the entertainment, fashion 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 companies such as Label Line, Lazy Pants and PURE Entertainment. His love for running businesses and inspiring change continued throughout multiple endeavours that carried him through the live events, entertainment, fashion, and now the Cannabis industry.
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. IN 2017 lucas partnered up with eric barth and together Evolving the business and services as the Canadian laws changed, Lucas & ERIC 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 around cannabis. Since 2018, they’ve added a vapor on tap station called “THE CUBE”, on-site infusing stations for their beverage bar, catering, elegant mobile trays, consumption lounges, certified budtenders and cannabis sommeliers.
In 2021, BizBash announced their Must-know Event Profs and awarded Lucas Margulis as one of Canada’s top 250 most influential event professionals.
