Brush & Barrel
Stumped on what to do for your next catchup with pals, or have an upcoming special occasion that needs celebrating? Then look no further than Brush & Barrel, the super cute paint and sip concept that guarantees a good time, every time!
After the popularity of its sister location in Brisbane, Brush & Barrel has brought the excitement to the Gold Coast, opening up a cute and intimate studio in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Gone are the days of run-of-the-mill dinner and drinks routine for your friend dates—say hello to BYO and artistic masterpieces. Just book your session according to what painting is being recreated that day and enjoy a mindful two-hour escape from the daily grind (along with lots of drinks and laughs, obvs).
One of the best things about Brush & Barrel is that they’ll provide all the painting necessities, while you only need your favourite adult grape juice (although if you’re feeling snacky why not whip up a luxe cheese board as well to BYO?)
To accompany you on your artistic journey there are tunes to brush along to and step-by-step guidelines from the Social Painting Instructor (dream job right there) if, like us, you’re challenged by even stick figures. However, you're given the choice of following along with the selected paint scheme, or letting let your artistic flag fly and going rogue with the perfect colour combo for the wall your masterpiece will undoubtedly hang upon.
If you’ve been burdened with organising the next work outing or want something new to do with a larger group, Brush & Barrel also offers private classes in their gorgeous 32-seat studio, not to mention special paint-your-pet classes!
Because of the intimate nature of Brush & Barrel (honestly, one of its perks) bookings are essential to make sure you don’t miss out. So fire up the group chat, select your favourite plonk, and make a booking right here.
