Unique Bar Bat Mitzvah Venue Options

Unique Bar Bat Mitzvah Venue Options

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 such as a beautiful hotel, or gorgeous ballroom or an alternative space such as a chic nightclub, sports venue or how about skydiving?!
