Venues for a Bar Mitzvah in Hopkinton

Posted by diegoturnover on January 22nd, 2016

The day your son becomes a bar mitzvah is an important milestone for you as a Jewish parent—and a big reason to celebrate with family and friends. Planning a bar mitzvah in Hopkinton starts with finding the best venue. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event; naturally, you want a venue that is worthy of such a huge celebration. There are several things you need to consider before you start searching for a suitable venue:

  •          Decide on how many guests you will invite. This is important as it can help you narrow down venues based on their capacity. 
  •          Choose whether you want a luncheon or an evening party, or maybe something in between.
  •          Think about whether you want the party theme to be mainly for kids and close friends and family members, or a bigger celebration that appeals to all age groups.

When it comes to bar mitzvah venues in Hopkinton, there are plenty to choose from. You can’t go wrong with traditional venues including country clubs and hotels, but you can also choose alternative venues such as bowling alleys and other sports facilities. It’s best that you go see the venue for yourself, even if you are working with a bar mitzvah planner. Most venues are fully booked on weekends and in the evenings, so be sure to reserve your venue well in advance.

Food is another important consideration. Does the venue provide catering services? Can they offer a kosher menu? Can they cater to other dietary restrictions? Can they customize a separate menu for the children who will be attending the party? Should you decide to use an outside caterer, make sure that the venue allows outsiders to work within their premises. Check the kitchen situation and assess if there are enough facilities for food preparation.

Now, for the beverages. Are you thinking of doing cocktail hour ahead of the main meal? If so, check if the bar mitzvah venue offers separate rooms for hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. Discuss your options with the caterer. Perhaps they can set up a cheese and fruit board and a carving station. It’s important that you serve hors d'oeuvres specifically for kids—such as chicken tenders and mini pizza, for example.

For both the cocktails and main reception, decide whether you want to offer a partial or a full open bar, or an all-cash bar. You might also have the option to have a full open bar for the cocktail party, and then a cash bar for the main reception. It’s a good idea to set up a bar for kids, serving smoothies and other such drinks.

Some venues can offer entertainment options, and some don’t, so you’ll have to hire your own. Choose a good mix of entertainment for your guests—some for the kids and some for the adults.
