There are two Paint Bar locations in Boston - one in Newton (down the street from my apartment), and one on Newbury Street in Boston. We chose the Newton location so we didn't have to fight for parking - it's free after 6pm.
The inside of this location is super cute - bright colors on the walls, tables with easels and canvases just waiting for eager painters, and a mini gallery displaying all of the paintings they do each month. Laura was also in love with the giant giraffe painting hanging in the purple and yellow bathroom.
In addition to the painting you'll do, there's also the "bar" half. They sell wine by the glass, soda, water, chips and candy for you to enjoy while you hang out. All the makings for a great evening!
When we arrived, we were shown to our seats (so nice there was assigned seating so you don't need to worry about getting there at a certain time so your group can sit together) and told to head to the back to get ready. We grabbed our aprons and headed to the paint area, which had instructions about how many 'squirts' of each color we needed to complete that evening's panting. So easy.
Then we met our teacher for the evening (Jackie), who actually started Paint Bar with her mother! Jackie is hilarious, talented, and GOOD at what she does. She managed to strike a balance between clear instruction and funny banter that made for a fantastic few hours.

It was such a fun night - I can't WAIT to go back!
