The Details

What to Wear

We provide aprons, but recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on just in case! Acrylic paint will stain your clothes.

Beer and wine are available for purchase. (BYOB is not permitted by law in Boston or Newton). We are not a bar, but offer an assortment of popular wine (purchased by the glass) and bottled beer for your enjoyment while painting. We also have snacks for sale and a variety of restaurants in the area. You may bring in any food. 

Anyone over the age of 8 is welcome at The Paint Bar but please remember the law states you must be 21 years old to consume alcoholic beverages.
