Bar Refaeli, bar-becues, bar-ramundi, the Bar-my Army - there's a lot of things beginning with B-A-R worth celebrating. A Bar (or Bat) Mitzvah is certainly no exception to the rule. This Jewish coming-of-age ritual is, as Ron Burgundy would say: "Kind of a big deal." James Roche previews five bangin' Bar/Bat Mitzvah Venues now available for hire!
Louise Blouin Foundation
Any venue boasting a 10-metre-high ceiling with seventy nine arched windows is guaranteed to possess its own definitive aura and in the case of the Louise Blouin's Space, this is perhaps the most striking feature of all.
The main events area is flooded with natural light and can be illuminated in a moving colour scale by night. The Louise Blouin Foundation is a dazzling, versatile venue no matter what time of year your special celebration takes place. The triple-height ceiling proves especially helpful during any impromptu chair lifting...
