Pinot’s Palette is a fun and engaging paint and sip experience – a revolutionary way to enjoy art and drinks, meet new people and bond with friends.
At our sip and paint parties, guests enjoy a 'no art experience required' paint party & all art supplies are included! You'll be led by our talented local artists who will guide you step-by-step to create the featured painting.
Our paint events are more party than an art class. Though our artists will guide you to create the featured painting, but this is your masterpiece! You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color from our paint cart or paint another image entirely. Being creative is encouraged!
The more the merrier, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! When we paint it forward, we paint, drink and have fun!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
We encourage our guests to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start time of the paint party to allow time to grab a beverage, get ready to paint and settle in at your table. Our paint parties begin at the scheduled start time.
We are located at 2768 N. Milwaukee Ave, a half block south of Diversey Avenue and steps from the Blue Line Logan Square L stop (exit towards Spaulding). Metered street parking is available all along Milwaukee, Diversey and Kimball Avenues for $2/hr with the Chicago Park app. Street parking is free on Sundays. A public parking lot is also available two blocks south of us at the corner of Spaulding & Emmett, also $2/hr through Chicago Park.
The Perfect Night Out
Enjoy drinks, upbeat music and hanging out with your favorite people while you paint! It's as fun for first-time painters as it is for experienced artists.
From the moment you walk in, the mood is light, the music is fun and the conversation comes easy!
Easy to Do
You don't need to be a seasoned painter — we make it easy for everyone to find their inner artist!
You'll get seats with all your friends, even if you book separately. Just tell us your friends' names when you register.
Paint Your Way
There's no rule that says you have to follow the artist's steps. It's your art, so paint it however you like!

Click on the painting of your choice. To reserve a seat, click the ‘Register’ button and follow the on-screen directions to complete the order. Please contact us if you have any trouble completing your order. We will help you trouble shoot the issue or simply take your reservation by phone.
Is there an age limit for your regular public classes?
We welcome families and children ages 6 years and above for any of our daytime paint parties. While our evening classes that begin after 5 pm are structured for adults, we do allow guests aged 13 – 17 to participate if they are accompanied by an adult. All guests must be at least 21 years of age to purchase or consume alcohol.
What should I wear to paint?
No dress code here...dress casual or dress up! We provide all guests with an apron, but painters have been known to get involved in their work of art. Should any acrylic paint get on your clothes, it can typically be washed out within 60 seconds. If allowed to set longer, the paint may be permanent.
I don’t have any artistic talent? Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our paint parties are intended for beginners, but are also fun for more seasoned artists. Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting. You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color from our paint cart, add in your own detail or paint another image entirely. We encourage creativity and there are no mistakes! Acrylic paint dries quickly, so making changes or perfecting your painting is easy to do.
Is there parking near your studio?
Street parking is available all along Milwaukee, Kimball and Diversey Avenues. While parking in some areas is free, most parking is $2/hr. Using the ‘Park Chicago’ app makes paying for parking a breeze. A public parking lot is also available two blocks south of us at the corner of Spaulding & Emmett (behind McDonalds), also $2/hr. We are also just steps from the Blue Line Logan Square stop (exit the L platform towards Spaulding Ave).
