Venue Options For Your Child’s Bar Bat Mitzvah Celebration


After receiving your child’s Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah date, selecting a venue is the first big 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 country club or do you see your family and friends enjoying an alternative space such as a state-of-the-art sports venue or a modern night club? 

Whatever you decide, there are plenty of options to choose from and our vendors listed below are happy to discuss what they offer.
