Unlike many nightlife hotspots, The Urban Art Bar does not feature dimmed lights and loud music. Instead, the brand new South Boston studio's overhead lights provide ample light to see by and soft music fills the background to create an atmosphere catering to their patrons’ true task—learning art in a variety of mediums. At the head of the room sits one of a team of resident artists, each a local professional, who leads each gathering step-by-step. 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's brand new design provides wine, beer, cocktails, and food for patrons to sip on as they relax and explore their artistic side. With the mantra “The Art Of……”, the studio aims to represent art as an all-encompassing entity. In addition to painting on canvas, this includes music, health and wellness, mixology, wine and beer pairings, children’s series, senior citizen events, fashion, hair and makeup, reading, and board games.
