Hotels tick a lot of boxes when looking for ideas for a Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Venue as they are very practical.  Firstly, they are a bit of a one stop shop.  They are used to hosting large events, have plenty of parking but also give the opportunity for the hosts and guests to stay overnight at reduced rates.  Hotels will often offer a non-offensive menu which means in most cases, you will not need to pay for function room hire.  If you have a kosher caterer requirement, most hotels will offer a dry hire option.   In addition, hotels usually have lots of necessities included in the price, e.g, tables, chairs, table linen, dancefloors, security etc making them cost effective.

Halls take so many different forms – for example, synagogue halls, community halls, town halls, concert halls, school halls and often provide the ultimate blank canvas venue. Halls are cheaper than other venues but do bear in mind, they may not include things like tables and chairs which can be costly to hire.   If you have a theme and want to create your own look at your Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Venue, then this could be a great option for you.  Remember, even the plainest hall can be transformed easily with great lighting and a few extras like dance floors & staging.


Restaurants are a great idea for a Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Venue as food is usually an important part of a Simcha, and restaurants will be geared up to provide this in large numbers!
