"I went to Paint Lounge for my 24th birthday and 8 friends. We had a great time, we were a bit late but Sam and Bev were super nice and accommodating. The idea is great...come, hang out with friends, relax, eat and create your own work of art! Everyone had a FABULOUS time.. we're all in our mid 20's and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! The space is comfortable, clean and well lit. The music wasn't too loud that we couldn't speak to one another, but wasn't inaudible either. There are lots of art/design books to browse through if you're an amateur painter (as our group was). Bev/Sam were great at providing tips, suggestions and teaching us different ways to make our pieces ah-may-zing! I'd highly recommend this place to anyone. It's really a great time, great space, and the staff are courteous, nice and knowledgeable."
"Great experience! and I will go back again and this is why:
The last time I drew something was in my grade 9 art class...I am not creative at all and in fact, as soon as we planned to visit this place, I started to get paranoid of what I should draw.
I'm still drawing blank in my mind the moment I stepped in and after they set-up the canvas in front of me. The owners are encouraging, kept telling us that you don't have to know what you want to draw, ideas will slowly come in as you pick up the brush. They were showing us what their their customers have drawn and how they did not plan ahead and ideas just hit them naturally on the spot. Guess what, they were right!
Overall, it was a really great night, I had lots of fun and I think it is hard to believe if you are not an artsy person to begin with, you just need to give this place a try!"
"My friends and I went to Paintlounge on my birthday. It is a great way to chill with friends. The best part is that we were able to take home these memories via. our canvasses! It was definitely an interesting experience seeing what you and ur friends come up with :)
The front of the shop is a nice cafe where you can chill, surf on their free wifi and enjoy a drink. The back is a painting studio where you can paint. They also have mini tables in the back too so you can eat/drink while painting.
Overall, all of us enjoyed our experience. Definitely will be back... they serve yummy treats and delicious hot chocolate (cinnamon hot chocolate is my fave!).. oh and they have fresh loose leaf tea, so you can mix them up as you please: Rose, green tea, black tea."
