*By purchasing your seats, you confirm agreement with the following policies:
ADVANCED RESERVATIONS REQUIRED: We have reduced our seating capacity to practice safe social distancing at each table. Due to limited seating, all guests must be registered for class prior to arrival to guarantee your reservation. Payment is due at the time of making the reservation. No walk-ins!
CLASS MINIMUM: If a public class does not meet the minimum of 6 painters at least 24 hours prior to each event, we reserve the right to cancel class. In this instance, you will be notified via email and we will issue you a studio credit valid for 60 days or reschedule you into an upcoming class on our current calendar. Studio credits and reschedules are valid on all In-Studio and Virtual Classes, as well as Take Home Paint Kits. Refunds will not be issued. No exceptions!
MUST BE 18 OR OLDER. Drinks are not included in the event price. Please have valid ID ready for the bar if you plan on consuming alcoholic beverages. A paid reservation and active painting participation are required to be in the studio during all events. No exceptions! Since we are licensed solely as a bar, this is required per our St. Matthews liquor license and zoning restrictions for the Woodlawn shopping center, as well as our corporate policy.
HEALTHY AT WORK: For your safety, as well as the safety of our artists and staff, we require masks to be worn upon entering and exiting the studio, in common areas while walking around, and at your seat while not eating and drinking. If you forget your mask, we have them available for purchase for $1 each. If you choose not to wear a mask, we reserve the right to not allow entry into the studio regardless of a pre-paid reservation or not. Only one person or group may enter the studio at a time upon check-in. Please form a line to check-in outside on our social distancing markers on the sidewalk in front of the studio until it is your turn to enter. Guests are required to sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting the studio, as well as washing them throughout class. Gloves will be provided to any guests that wish to wear them. Additionally, all artists and staff will have their temperature taken upon arrival and will be required to wear a mask and/or face shield throughout their entire shift. You will be informed of additional studio procedures upon check-in.
SEATING REQUESTS: Due to the current nature of our limited seating capacity and our redesigned studio space, seating requests will be taken into consideration but are not guaranteed. If you purchase multiple seats in your reservation or request to sit with someone in your seating request, you will be seated together and your group with be distanced from other unrelated guests. However, if anyone in your reservation prefers to be seated socially distanced from the other members of your group, we will certainly be accommodating. Each table has limited seating per group.
NO OUTSIDE DRINKS of any kind (including non-alcoholic) will be permitted. Food is not provided. You're more than welcome to bring any food you'd like to snack on during class. We provide plates, utensils, and napkins for every event.
LATE ARRIVAL POLICY: Class starts promptly at the designated scheduled time. Arrivals more than 15 minutes after the painting session has started are welcome to paint but will need to catch up on their own. Depending on the number of reservations in class, there may be a Floor Artist to assist you.
Please allow yourself up to an additional 30 minutes after the painting session is scheduled to end, if planning a ride home or have made other plans after class. We can get carried away with our creativity sometimes and don't want you to feel rushed.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL - Cancellation Policy (based on class start time):
Due to the custom nature of our classes, NO REFUNDS will be issued for reservations. However, if you cancel with at least 48 hours’ notice, your payment will be turned into a studio credit that can ONLY be used for a future class within 30 days. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to cancel.
If you 'no-show' for a class that you have a reservation for or don't give us at least 48 hours’ notice of your cancellation, you forfeit your reservation payment. Seats are transferable, but you will need to notify us prior to the class with the name change.
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!

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.

What is Pinot's Palette?
Pinot's Palette is Louisville's premiere paint and sip destination, and the only paint and sip in town with a full bar. You will enjoy an upscale studio with 2 rooms that can accommodate public classes and private events at the same time. You come to us for an entertaining evening where you create a painted masterpiece and memories with friends, family, and co-workers. Pinot's Palette is truly the place to Paint. Drink. Have Fun.
I don't have artistic talent. Will I be able to complete the painting?
Absolutely! Our professional local artists will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are technically no real mistakes in art, but acrylic paint dries quickly, making any mess-ups easy to fix and look like "happy accidents", as Bob Ross would say.
What days are Public and Private events held?
Public events are always held on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Occasionally, there are classes on other nights during the week. Private Events can be scheduled any day of the week, provided it does not conflict with other scheduled events. View our Event Calendar to find out more!
Do I need a reservation?
Yes, advanced reservations are required. All guests must be registered for class prior to arrival to guarantee your reservation and special seating requests. Payment is due at the time of the reservation to guarantee your seat.
