Paint Nite

We help the world Drink Creatively. Disrupting the nightlife scene, Paint Nite offers consumers a creative social experience at local bars where a professional artist provides easy step-by-step guidance on how to create a painting in about 2 hours. Using a technology platform and a strategic marketing plan, Paint Nite enables local artists and venues to plan, promote and sell out creative social painting events on a massive scale. The online event registration service makes it easy for the local community to discover events and share with their friends on social media. The win-win-win: Artists are able to profit from their passion for the arts and entertain their local community. Venues are able to convert unused space on a slow night into a profit center and engage new customers with a unique, memorable experience. Consumers are able to connect with friends, engage and find joy in the creative process, and walk out with an authentic piece of art that they created. Every month, more than 350 local artists host over 4,000 experiential art events at 1,000 venues—typically local bars—and sell 150,000 tickets to unique live experiences in 135 cities across the U.S., Canada, South Africa, Argentina, and the UK.
