This is the place to wear that outfit that's hot enough to party in, but ready to be thrown out.
This includes anything from jeans to party shoes. Leave the fancy dresses for another event.
The snacks are ok and the wine list too, but the fun part is to hang out with friends and enjoy some great laughs over wine while you try to paint something you won't be too ashamed of.
There is an artist on hand to help you out, lots of paint colours although new brushes and more enthusiastic artisitic staff is needed. Who cares! It's a good time with the right party and laissez faire attitude.

Great experience for a team building. Only dislike was that the paint available was missing 2 to 3 colors including white. I would think this would be a general maintenance issue. We also requested a total vegan menu and sausage on almost every plate. But a very fun experience and would recommend to others.

This idea of eating then painting was way more fun than I thought. I went with a group of friends. You may want to have dinner first. The food selection is more for snacking as you drink.

Came here with a group of girls for some appies, drinks and painting. I think my experience might have been marred by the completely horrendous painting I produced and group of douchebags sitting around us, however, not the restaurant's fault! Very cool concept being that you eat drink and then paint, or vice versa as well perhaps? The painting area staff was incredibly helpful and offered great sizes of canvases and tons of colours. However there weren't too many paintbrushes for the amount of people in the area at one time. Some of the more "serious" artists (and there's alot of them) hoard 5-6 which shouldn't be allowed, as then others get left with dirty matted ones. Regardless, I'd totally go back, like that you can have a drink while creating a masterpiece but perhaps offering little side tables to put them on? I had to put mine on the floor which wasn't great. They also let you leave your art there to dry to pick up anytime within a week, which is really helpful when you're going out afterwards!

I recently just had my first time here. I wasn't really sure what to expect but the experience was amazing. I came here for a first date. There was paint on the chairs and tables. Funky, abstract painting on the walls. A huge wine and beer list. Great to loosen nerves ;) The menu was smallish but adequate. It was definitely an experience. They let you put handprints on the walls and just go wild. A great way to spend an evening. We spent four hours here without realizing. Fantastic, attentive, and friendly service.
