Pinot's-Palette-LogoPinot’s Palette is an upscale “Paint. Drink. Have Fun.” destination located at 2086 Badlands Dr. in Brandon where anyone can be a Picasso. No art experience is necessary, and within two to three hours, customers will walk away with great memories of a fun evening with friends and a handmade masterpiece. Pinot’s Palette is a perfect location for girls’ night out, double date night, bachelorette parties, birthdays and anniversaries. There is even a private room for parties of no less than 10 but no more than 18.

Classes are held Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Weeknight classes run for two hours and cost $35 per person, and weekend classers are for three hours and cost $45 per person.

Pinot’s Palette owner, Beverly Walker, a long time resident of Brandon said, “We are upscale….we pay attention to every little detail and are committed to being THE premium night out experience in Brandon.” Walker added, “I want people to know the value of simply having fun and how much it adds to life.”

Pinot’s Palette is offering Thursday Theme Nights now through the end of the year. It includes “Trivia Night” on Thursday, July 31; “Night- Florida Glow” on Thursday, August 7; “No Babysitter Needed” on Thursday, August 14 (kids will have their own painting party) , “What If” movie night on Thursday, August 21; and “Margaritaville” on Thursday, August 28.

Walker said of the Thursday Theme Nights, “Now that we have a good base of customers who know us and have been to Pinot’s Palette, we believe we can brand the theme nights to be an evening of even more fun than our usual everyday fun.” Walker added, “We’re having so much fun coming up with themes. Our artists are coming up with ideas, so not only are our guests having fun, our staff is having a ball with theme nights.”

Pinot’s Palette provides the canvas, easel, brushes, paint and apron. Guests can bring food if desired and leave the rest up to Pinot’s Palette. The Brandon location is not BYOB, but sells wine and beer onsite. Readers who book through Sunday, August 31 and mention “ObserverJulyTheme” will get 15 percent off the class price.
