The Art Bar @ The Hideaway

The Art Bar is perfect for every kind of private party, including work team-building events and fundraisers. We host birthday parties, hen and stag does, bridal and baby showers, anniversary parties — in fact, every kind of celebration you can think of!

Come and join us for a painting session with a twist.  Order your drink from a selection of beers, wines, and cocktails and join our art instructor to produce your own piece of art.  The sessions are for anyone, no matter how little experience you have with art.  We will make sure you produce a piece of art that you will be really proud of.

  1. Pick a date

Email us with a date, bearing in mind we open Monday to Saturday only.  We would need at least 14 days’ notice. We will then send you a link for booking and choosing your menu should you wish to eat.

Prices range from £25 to £45 depending on time of day, and day of the week and whether you will be eating or not.  Large groups discounts are available.  Maximum group size must be 20.

  1. Paint and party!

We take care of everything so you don’t have to, just come and paint, and have a great time!

You’ll receive a 16’ x 20’ pre-stretched canvas (or other material to paint on if applicable), acrylic paint, brushes, easels, and apron. Each session lasts approximately 2.5 hours.

We provide aprons, but recommend wearing something you wouldn’t mind getting paint on just in case! Acrylic paint will stain your clothes.

Beer and wine are available for purchase.  We are situated within a restaurant and bar, and offer an assortment of popular wine (purchased by the glass), bottled beer and cocktails for your enjoyment while painting. The restaurant offers a great menu should you wish to hold a group event which includes catering.

Anyone over the age of 8 is welcome at The Art Bar but please remember the law states you must be 18 years old to consume alcoholic beverages.

Evening session arrival is between 6:00 and 6:30 pm. Seating is assigned by number of people in your group and done on a first-come first-served basis. Painting begins promptly at 7 pm.

Afternoon session arrival is between 1:00 and 1:30 pm. Seating is assigned by number of people in your group and done on a first-come first-served basis. Painting begins promptly at 2:00 pm.

The pre-painting half hour for both afternoon and evening sessions gives you time to be seated, get your paint and/or a drink, and relax a little before the painting begins.
