Drink a glass of Wine and Play Picasso
The Paint Bar felt warm and welcoming when I stepped into the Newbury Street location this Tuesday. A place where you can drink a glass of wine like an adult, and paint like a kid.
If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing girls night, this is a great event. You have 30 minutes at the beginning of class to buy a drink from the bar, grab your complimentary paint materials, and settle in. An instructor then leads the group step-by-step through the painting of the same picture. Although everyone is painting the same scene, each picture comes out with it’s own unique touch.
The painting lasts about 2 hours. At the end, you take your masterpiece home.
The Paint Bar was the first company like this to open in the Northeast, six years ago. Co-owner, Jackie Kerner Schon remembers the days when she had to explain to people what a paint bar was, but now it’s a popular concept.
“People want something fun to do with their friends,” she said. “It’s become another form of entertainment, like going to the movies or bowling.”
Jackie, and her mother Jill, are the definition of Girl Bosses. Their future goals for The Paint Bar are to stay small, local, and woman-owned. Jackie says they have their customers to thank for the journey.
“We have some of the best customers in the world. We’ve been to peoples weddings, funerals, births of their children. I’m getting married in the fall, and if I could, I’d invite them all to the wedding.”
