5 Reasons to Have Your Next Date Night at Muse Paintbar

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to go to Muse Paintbar for a paint and sip date night! I must tell you that it is so much fun.

It was easy to find the location and I can’t believe I never knew that it was in Towne Center since I go there for comedy shows at The Funny Bone. Parking was less than a five-minute walk from the paint party and as soon as you walk through the doors you are right at home.

#1 Great Atmosphere

Upon walking through the door, you are greeting by a staff member who tells you where to find your seat, hang your jackets, and where to find the aprons. I arrived a bit early so I could look at some of the awesome paintings that they had hanging around and make my way to the bar to get our bottle of wine.

Loving the vibe of @muse_paintbar. So many awesome #paintings! This is going to be a great night. #musepaintbar #virginiabeach #virginiablogger #757 #paintnightfun

Once it’s time for class to start your instructor (ours way Jo who is really cool by the way) will go over what to expect during class, makes sure you know where everything is and does introductions to the staff. Oh, and throughout the entire class, there is fun music playing, which helps make the time fly by.

#2 Painting is Relaxing

Painting is so relaxing. At home, I like to color in adult coloring books, but painting takes relaxing to an entirely different level.

At first, I was so nervous because I have never painted anything in my life except for my nails and all the artwork looked like professional painters had done it, so I was sure my painting wouldn’t turn out anywhere close to that.

However, Jo did things in an easy to follow format and over time I could see my painting coming together perfectly.

Just a start. However, I must admit that this is very #relaxing. #painting #paintingwithatwist #musepaintbar #datenight #757 #757blogger #virginiablogger #virginiabeach

The best part is even though we were there for about 3 hours, it felt like we were only there for 45 minutes to an hour. Time really flies by when painting!

#3 It’s Budget Friendly

As a mom of three I don’t get to go out on date nights as much as I could without kids because let’s face it, Virginia is expensive and kids are expensive, so spending a ton of unnecessary money is not happening with three mouths to feed. Well, the good news is, date night doesn’t have to be expensive. We were able to get some food, a bottle of wine, a beer, and leave a 15% tip for less than $50.

#4 You Learn a New Skill

As I mentioned earlier, the only thing I have painted in my life are my nails. However, with Jo’s great instructions I was able to paint a canvas that if I must say so myself doesn’t look too bad at all. If everything was as fun, simple, and relaxing, as painting at Muse Paintbar was, I am sure I would be a millionaire by now lol.

Final outcome. Thanks @muse_paintbar for having us! What a fun experience. Highly recommended. Blog post with more details coming to #giveaways4mom next week #virginiabeach #virginiablogger #paintnight

#5 It’s Fun

I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, but Muse Paintbar was a fun night and the time just passed by. The staff was nice, the environment was fun and friendly, and of course Jo kept us on track and having fun all the night. Overall, this is one of the most fun date nights that I have been on in a while.

Final Thoughts on Muse Paintbar

Overall, this was my first visit to Muse Paintbar, but it won’t be my last. While Virginia Beach is an hour away from me, taking the ride is well worth it. Painting relaxes you and you get to do it while drinking wine – that’s what I call a win!

Have you ever been to a painting and wine event before? If so, how did your experience go?




  1. I’ve been invited to a event like this but never attended. Back in high school and my early 20’s I use to draw and use pastel, but I fell out of love with it since I never have the time. But it was so soothing and relaxing, cleared my mind when drawing. I seriously need to get back into it again.

      I had no idea that you used to draw. You should definitely try a paint night, though. Muse Paintbar even has family and children paint nights as well, so it could be fun for the whole family.

  2. I’ve always wanted to try something like this! I’d go with some of my girls though. lol

  3. I’ve never been to a painting and wine event before, but I would love to go. I loved painting when I was in elementary and I haven’t done it in years. I think they have something like this here in the city too. Will check it out.

  4. Painting together can be so much fun! I see why you suggest it.

  5. I would love to do one of these painting nights! Looks like you had a blast!

  6. Yolanda Williams says:

    I have always wanted to do this. You’re so right this is an awesome date idea, even a first date. It’s a great way to engage and interact with having fun. Also good for a girls night out.

  7. ricci says:

    I think a paint bar is a fantastic place for a date!! Or for a girls’s night! Great post!!

  8. I have always wanted to do this with my husband but he isn’t up for it. Guess I will have to plan a girls night out one evening. My sister in law has done it a few times and her paintings are very good.

  9. Gabriel says:

    My wife and daughter did a mother daughter wine (well, Mom had wine) and paint night a few months back and they loved it so much that our daughter wants to do one for her birthday party this year.

  10. Jennifer Van Huss says:

    What a great idea for a date! I love painting but never have the time to do it! I love the idea of going someone social and having access to a ton of supplies and inspiration!

  11. Karissa says:

    This is such a unique date night! I think it would be great fun! However… I know my husband’s creation will be much much better than mine!

  12. Becky Willis says:

    It looks like you had a great time. I have never gone to a Paint Bar but I see many of my friends in town go out of town to do so. I like the fact that you were able to eat, leave a tip and have a bottle of wine for that amount! Definitely a win-win situation.

  13. I’ve so many people on social media having a great time at these paint bars. I need to seek one out in my area. It sounds like an awesome date night activity.

  14. Keisha Adinkra says:

    Looks like so much fun I need to find something like this in my area. Thanks for sharing!

  15. I was just talking about this today! I love these places so much, I think they’re a blast!

  16. Aduke says:

    Can I make it a solo date? lol I’ve been wanting to try one of these places for so long. I think it would be a blast.

    1. admin says:


      Of course. They have different themes each day. For my first time, I decided to just go to the couples event.

  17. We have a paint bar a couple of towns over, but I had never thought about a date night there! Looks fun and relaxing and reasonable! Thanks for sharing! #ProductReviewParty

  18. What a great idea for a date night. It would be fun to do something different like this. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Claudia Krusch says:

    This is a great date night idea. We are a creative couple and are always looking for fun things to do.

  20. I have always wanted to try one of these paint bars. I am not very good at art, but I bet this would be a fun activity to do with my girlfriends.

  21. That place looks like so much fun! My husband and I would love to get out to do something like this together – I love it because it’s not a normal date night idea, and you get to bring a painting home!

  22. Kelly Hutchinson says:

    What a fun idea for date night! You did a great job! You are a natural!

  24. I have always wanted to do this and would be great as a date night. I’m single so I’d have fun going with some of my BFF’s as well.

  25. Great idea for a date. I love anything that gets you to explore your creative side.

  26. Paint bars are so much fun! I love going out with the girls and attempting to drink and paint at the same time! =D
