The Urban Art Bar
Unlike many nightlife hotspots, The Urban Art Bar does not feature dimmed lights and loud music. Instead, overhead fluorescents provide ample light to see by and soft music fills the background to create an atmosphere catering to their patrons’ true task—painting. At the head of the room sits one of a team of resident artists, each a local professional, who leads each gathering in the step-by-step re-creation of a particular painting. The staff also provides all necessary materials, including paint, brushes, canvases, and smocks, which prevent paint from getting all over clothing when students joyously hug their finished product. To fuel this creativity fest, the Bar provides wine and beer for patrons to sip on as they relax and explore their artistic side.
