10 Best Bar Mitzvah Venues

May 18, 2022 Jessica Stewart

Did you know that the first bar/bat mitzvah ever recorded took place back in the thirteenth century in France? Today, this coming-of-age tradition is commonplace in the Jewish community. 

However, just because the tradition is now commonplace doesn't mean that your bar/bat mitzvah has to be. And, if you're wanting to throw a rocking bar or bat mitzvah, why not choose a unique party venue?

To get you inspired, we've put together a list of seven potential bar/bat mitzvah venues that you could use for your event. Let's take a look!

1. Nebula

Nebula is a premier nightclub in New York City, that has all of the special effects that you're looking for to make your party memorable. 

The Nightclub is located at 135 W 41st street, and is the ideal place to have a raging bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah!

At this party venue, one of the coolest features is that you'll find tons of up-and-coming, as well as popular DJs. That makes it a great place for those who want to focus on the music!

Just keep in mind that you'll need to bring your own food. The nightclub offers a full bar, but you can request non-alcoholic kosher drinks if you want to mix that up at your party.   

2. The Glasshouses

There really is no other event hall quite like The Glasshouses, a beautiful space in downtown Chelsea. 

The Glasshouses are conveniently close to public transportation. That's ideal for any guests who need to take the bus or the subway to get to your bar mitzvah. 

On top of that, you'll find three unique spaces. The Studio is the smallest space while the large event hall measures a whopping 30,000 square feet. 

The space also includes lighting and sound effects, helping save you a bit of money in your budget. Plus, there are handy video connections so that you can play a unique video during your bar mitzvah. 

3. HK Hall NYC

HK Hall is the perfect mix of a nightclub and an event hall. The space is extremely versatile, but still offers gorgeous stone walls that add ambiance to the space. 

In HK Hall, you'll enjoy a beautiful ballroom that can be filled with tables and chairs for your guests to dine at. 

Then, when you're ready for the real party to begin, transform the space into a rocking nightclub using the space's sound and light effects. You'll love dancing the night away in a space that really makes your party pop!

There are also catering and bar options available. Just let the team know that you'll be hosting a Kosher event and they'll work with you to create the ideal night.  

4. Gotham Hall

Gotham Hall is located in Midtown and features a 70-foot ceiling and a sweeping, 9,000 square foot ballroom. The soaring ceilings and enchanting glass skylight make for a space that feels like no other. 

What's special about Gotham Hall is its round design. You can arrange your table and chairs however you like in the space, but the round style makes it feel extra unique. 

Another feature of the hall that we love is that it's historic. You can cozy up for a more quiet bar mitzvah in the historic Oak Room or step into Hollywood in the Mezzanine room. 

The space also comes with catering options. That can take a lot of stress off your shoulders when planning because you won't have to hire an outside vendor.  

5. Lavo NYC

Lavo NYC is a beautiful, upscale Italian restaurant where the food is truly to die for. Since it's a restaurant, the catering is built into the venue, giving you an easy option for your kosher meal! In addition to the food, the restaurant comes with all the chairs and tables your guests need. No need to hire outside vendors to supply you with furniture!

After you've eaten your fill, head downstairs to the Lavo nightclub. This is where the party will really come to life and you and your guests can dance the night away. 

6. Edison Ballroom

One of our top event planning tips is to find a venue that fits your theme. And, if you're going for a luxury theme, why not throw your bar/bat mitzvah in a ballroom?

The Edison Ballroom is the perfect place for high-flying individuals to throw their bar mitzvahs.

The incredible sound and lighting features in the event space and the soaring ceilings make for an incredible atmosphere. 

There are catering and bar options as well, so you can serve up some delicious kosher meals at your next big event. 

7. Slate

Last but certainly not least on our list is Slate. Slate is a beautiful entertainment venue full of quirky features that make your event even more unique. 

Aside from the fact that the space measures 16,000 square feet, it also spans two floors. You can even take the 20-foot slide down from the upstairs to the first floor!

The space also features an adult playground, a self-serve beverage wall, karaoke, ping-pong, bowling, and pool. Plus, there are state-of-the-art audio and video capabilities. 

When you're ready to sit down to a meal, you can do so in the banquet hall. This quirky play-place is great for those who want to celebrate their bar/bat mitzvah like no other!
