Unique bar mitzvah venues

Planning a bar mitzvah in Jerusalem for next summer. Looking for a site other than the Kotel, Robinson's Arch, or Masada to do the torah reading and ceremony. Open to synagogues, archeological sites, or beautiful venues. Any suggestions?

Having the bar mitzvah ceremony itself in a restaurant, etc, is not the norm in Israel - you would need to connect with a Rabbi who would be able to bring a Torah scroll to the venue, if you will be having services and reading from the Torah.

My nephew got married last month at Ein Yael which is an outside venue on the outskirts of Jerusalem. I'm not sure if they do Bar Mitzvahs there. If they do, I wouldn't think it would be on Shabbat.
