Top Questions To Ask A Bar Bat Mitzvah Venue Before You Book

After you receive your child’s Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah date, you are ready to start planning!

One of the first steps is selecting a venue. This is something you’ll want to do well in advance — venues do get booked, especially during popular months. 

Consider the type of celebration that is appropriate for your family: Do you prefer afternoon or evening? A sit-down dinner or buffet style service? Will it be a kids-only party? Would you prefer a traditional setting or an alternative space such as a chic nightclub, sports venue or how about a beach location?

When visiting venues, it is important to ask questions! We’ve gathered a list of key questions from some our of venue vendors that they suggest you ask before, during or after you visit each venue.
