PINOT'S PALETTE

BY AUDREY ARELLANO

Paintings of cherry blossom trees, the Northern lights, and full moons are among the many masterpieces hung up against the dark red and blue walls that have been gifted by guests of previous classes.

Upon arrival, your designated paint instructor checks you in and you may take a seat behind your canvas. Next, you can throw on a painting apron from the studio’s hanger wall and make your way to the bar. Guests can choose from beers, cocktails or wine before getting their Picasso on, as drinks are not included in your admission ticket.

Pinot’s Palette is the perfect place to go to for a first date, birthday party (if you’re 21 or older, of course), or to take your parents. To schedule a paint session or party reservation, go to www.pinotspalette.com for tickets and information.

On the 2000 block of Agoura Road, in the heart of Westlake Village, nestled between a Subway and a hair salon, rests the paint and sip studio Pinot’s Palette, where paint, drinks, and good company is all one needs for a fun night out.

In 2009, the Houston-based franchise created a business that brought the best of art classes and happy hour together. The business has since expanded to 120 locations in 33 states.

Unlike a bar, which holds drinking as the sole purpose for a guest’s visit, at paint and sip guests are invited to take part in not only painting, but also to relax, rock out to and request music throughout the class. This way guests aren’t focused on just getting hammered and can avoid being carried out of paint night.
