I'm renting event space for a party, how much do I tip?

I'm renting a room at a local winery for a Bar Mitzvah reception. The winery provides the location, the setup/teardown, tables/linens, and arranges the catering. I am being billed at $xx per person. How much of a tip am I supposed to leave?

I don't know if I'm supposed to leave a certain amount as a gratuity or if it's supposed to be a percentage of the fee that I'm paying - I anticipate the rental + catering + wine is going to be about $6,000 - A 20% tip on that is $1200 which is a lot of money - the costs for this event are already adding up as it is.
Is it appropriate to leave a flat tip or am I expected to pay a percentage of the final bill?
The winery provides the event space and will set up tables/chairs/linens - they hire out the caterers. I pay the winery directly if that helps.
