Bar or Bat Mitzvah Celebrations
The transition from childhood to adulthood is the most important ceremony of a Jewish girl or boy’s life. Kent House Knightsbridge is the perfect venue for bar/bat mitzvah celebrations, enabling you to tailor the space to celebrate it in a way that reflects your family.
Kent House Knightsbridge is described as a ‘blank canvas’ venue. This means it can be styled to reflect the building’s elegant architecture, or dressed with dramatic flourishes using theatrical lighting, opulent styling and beautiful flower arrangements. Over the years we’ve created a range of events such as winter wonderlands, a tropical beach complete with palm trees, romantic 1920s vintage styling and modern bright colour schemes. The flexibility of the venue means it can be styled to reflect whatever theme you’d like to create.

Many of our events have benefited from live music at the reception and close-up performers which helps to break the ice and get everyone chatting.
