Venue Choices For Your Child’s Bar Bat Mitzvah Celebration

Congratulations, you’ve received your child’s Bar Bat Mitzvah date! So, what’s next?

Choosing a venue is an important first step in the planning process. Consider the type of celebration that’s appropriate for your family. For example, are you most comfortable in a traditional setting such as a hotel ballroom or a catering hall or do you see your family and friends enjoying an alternative space such as a state-of-the-art sports facility, a modern night club or an all-inclusive event space? 

There is a wide range of venues to choose from, so be sure to visit them in person.

We’ve provided a variety of venue options below:
