To create an unforgettable barmitzvah without any gimmicks and as this was for the Director of an events company, it really needed to show the guests how a party should be done with the great need to have the wow factor, sophistication, creativity, elegance and more importantly, an electric atmosphere.
The venue had to be the iconic Roundhouse. Previously a train shed, the venue was a complete blank canvas in one of the trendiest parts of London, Camden Lock.
The reception: as the guests arrived they were greeted by our sexy showgirl on stilts. No-one was allowed inside the venue without receiving their special lanyard and then were directed up the stairs to the reception area. On entering the room, the adults were presented with vodka shots in iced shot glasses. On entering the reception area, the guests were greeted with a delicious array of different food stations that included a duck pancake bar, a sushi bar and a smoked salmon and caviar bar. Cocktails were handed round by waitresses and the guests were entertained by club tunes from the Ibiza DJ.
The main room: once the guests were called for dinner, they were treated to a spectacular light show while 4 sexy electric violin girls played everyone in, giving a real exhilarating start to the night.
Each table was named after a different pop star or band with a piece of memorabilia or something about the band frozen into a block of ice. This included original 7” Beatles record, something that most of the kids had never seen before, signed pictures of Chris Brown and Usher, a giant glittered platform boot for Abba and a pair of Will.I.Am’s glasses.
As the party was at The Roundhouse, the dance floor had to be round. Therefore, all the tables had a front row seat around the dance floor. The dance floor had been tailor-made with the logo of the party embossed in mirror on the centre of the dance floor. The kids table was especially made and was semi-circular round the adults tables making sure for a warm and cosy atmosphere even in such a vast venue.
During the night, the guests were entertained by the fantastic TOTEM showing the new DJ Live concept. This included fantastic female singer flown in especially from Paris to sing traditional Israeli songs during the starter.
The food was provided by James Zimmer, one of the top kosher caterers in the UK who created a most memorable dinner which consisted of blackened cod for a starter, sirloin steak for main course and a chocolate, caramel and toffee popcorn dessert.
During dinner, the kids were kept occupied by the graffiti wall, and in the green screen photo area where they could have their pictures made into iPhone covers, special metal picture frames and credit card sized pictures.
The main party set consisted of over an hour of electric dancing with the guests dancing on podiums and on the stage together with the band. The barmitzvah boy ended the night by singing with the band, a fantastic rendition of “Feelin’ Good”. As the guests left the venue, they were treated to fresh doughnuts, smoked salmon bagels, Red Bull for the ones that needed and energy boost, or fresh coffee in personalised coffee cups and goodie bags.
All the family were extremely happy and are already thinking about the next one in 4 years time.
