Start the year with a fantastic experience that has finally arrived in Bristol, which requires you to brush up on your painting skills. At the new and immersive Paint in the Dark experience, you’ll set your creative instincts free with a brush in one hand and a glass of wine, beer, or soft drink in the other, in a groovy environment bursting with electric energy. Having received amazing reviews in cities like Paris, London and Berlin, it’s finally here to paint the town neon.
Taking over Steinbeck & Shaw, this fun painting experience will rekindle your love of art and maybe even help you discover something new about yourself. Embrace the neon glow and see where this electrifying journey takes you!
What is Paint in the Dark?
Paint in the Dark is an adults-only, drink and paint workshop that inspires guests to experiment and think outside the box. Through the cool UV lights, this experience encourages creative exploration through neon and classical paints, as you listen to upbeat music in the background. For those of us that, let’s just say won’t be the next Dalí, the complimentary drink definitely helps! The neon lights produce highly saturated and vibrant colours contributing to a futuristic ambiance that helps to convey themes and emotions in the artwork.
Tell me more about PITD
As you sip on your drink of choice (wine, beer or soft drink), you’ll be given painting materials and be led on your evening of creative fun by a professional artist who will accompany you through the painting process for 90 minutes, answer your questions and even teach you a few techniques. Although you’ll have a “creativity guardian”, helping you through the artistic adventure, it is all up to you to choose the theme and colors and realise your creative vision.
Who is PITD for?
If you’re hesitant about Paint in the Dark and think you might not have the artistic chops to participate, fear not!

Whether you want to go with friends, family, a partner or even for your next team building with your colleagues, the experience will help you uncover your inner creative genius and most importantly, it’s just a lot of fun!
