Mazel tov! Your son is preparing for his bar mitzvah – and you are planning a party to celebrate this milestone in his life.

Family, friends, and your son’s classmates will all enjoy the glamourous atmosphere of the Eglinton Grand. Whether you want a small buffet lunch or an elegant sit-down dinner for 500, staff at the Eglinton Grand will help you host a party that your son and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

The Best Bar Mitzvah Venue in Toronto

There are many banquet halls in Toronto, and at first glance, these seem to be the most affordable option for hosting a bar mitzvah party. However, there are many disadvantages of renting a basic hall:
  • Décor. Banquet halls are often large, drafty, concrete boxes. In order to make them feel festive, you’ll have to spend a great deal of time and money on decorating. And no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to give a banquet hall a feeling of elegance.
  • Location. Many times, banquet halls are located in remote corners of the city. Guests are struggling to find the locations, and driving times can be lengthy.
  • Oversight. Banquet halls often depend on you to organize every aspect of the party. Coordinating catering, decoration, cake, and making sure that equipment is there for speeches, slideshows, etc., can be exhausting. You may be too stressed to enjoy your son’s special day.

The Eglinton Grand Advantage

Renting a venue like the Eglinton Grand, however, will allow you to relax and enjoy the fun. At the Eglinton Grand, professional staff oversee all aspects of the occasion. An in-house kosher kitchen features a large menu, and there are many options for à la carte or package meals.
The building itself is a splendidly-restored Art Deco theatre, with mahogany, ebony, marble and granite accents. Period architectural details such as wainscoting and ceilings, furniture and colour schemes evoke the glamour of 1930s Hollywood.
Located on Eglinton Avenue West near Avenue Road in Toronto, the venue is central and easy for your bar mitzvah guests to find.
