A Guide to Paint-and-Sip Nights Around the Main Line

These paint-and-sip destinations are perfect for date night or a fun outing with friends.

Instead of hitting the bar for your girls’ night this weekend, try something different with your gal pals or partner. Paint and sip events are a great way to unlock your inner creative, and the Main Line area boasts studios of all different kinds to elevate your evening. Whether you want a social vibe, a glow-in-the-dark studio with a party atmosphere or a more intimate night, Philly’s western suburbs offer options for everyone. 

Painting With a Twist – West Chester

1502 West Chester Pke., West Chester

This classic BYOB painting establishment is well-known for a reason; it’s the original paint-and-sip franchise that started it all. Offering parties for every occasion, as well as “pop in” nights to show up unannounced, Painting With a Twist hosts tutorials on how to paint specific scenes, from “paint your pet” nights to classical favorites. Each makes for a fun evening with friends.

Art in the Dark Paint

134 Lancaster Ave., Malvern

This venue offers an unforgettable night of fun with unlimited complimentary drinks and glow-in-the-dark paint in a room filled with dazzling black lights and music. The standard 90-minute Light Up The Night event is available 12 times a week, thrice a day Thursday to Sunday and costs $95 per person.

Board & Brush

210 S Newtown Street Rd., Newtown Square

This BYOB establishment is a unique twist on the classic paint and sip, since it invites attendees to create their own hand-built wood ornament. Participants will be guided through distressing, sanding and staining a personalized wood sign that could easily be mistaken for a vintage heirloom.

Entwined Action takes wine and painting literally. At this Ardmore studio, you can actually use wine to paint. Utilizing a technique similar to watercolor, the studio shows how the beverage’s red pigments create a stunning hue. This class is every wine-loving artist’s dream, with skills like blending, color gradients and more taught throughout the session.

This establishment becomes a BYOB after 5 p.m. and, rather than painting a canvas, you and your guests can paint personalized ceramics such as plates, dishes, mugs and other decor. Color Me Mine also offers weekly specials like Ladies Night on Thursdays, during which you and your friends can enjoy a calm atmosphere and fresh pottery to paint for only $25.
