Top tips for planning your Bar mitzvah celebration with Mercure

Top tips for planning your Bar mitzvah celebration with Mercure

16 May 2018

For the Jewish faith, a bar mitzvah is an important celebration when their son reaches 13; with the bat mitzvah celebration for daughters, generally when they reach 12 years of age. These milestones are often celebrated with a party, after the traditional ceremony in a synagogue.

You may be looking for a suitable Manchester venue to host your son’s bar mitzvah, or daughter’s bat mitzvah, celebrations. You will probably be considering the following:

  • Location – is the venue easily accessible?
  • An event room which can cater for a large number of family and friends
  • Flexibility with the timing and layout of the event
  • Can outside caterers can used?
  • Music and dancing

At the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, we can help you with all this and more. The largest event room can cater for 650 people for a sit down meal, and at the hotel we allow approved outside caterers to use the event kitchen. The room can include a dance floor 30 x 20 foot, providing the perfect setting for your bar or bat mitzvah celebrations. The rooms can be decorated to suit, whatever you have in mind.

We can assist with your own caterers, and other suppliers if required; we also work with Kosher caterers, if you’re looking for recommendations.

The hotel is an ideal venue, easily accessible, in the heart of Manchester, with onsite parking, and overnight accommodation available. Your relatives and friends who are travelling from afar will be easily placed to stay the night after the celebrations.


“In Manchester there are very few venues that can host a large number of people, in a wow room.

The Piccadilly hotel is a fantastic venue for any event and offers an amazing adaptable space. The team go above and beyond and will make sure that you are ready for your special day or event.

We love working with the team as they make our job so much easier and always look forward to visiting.”
