The “Premiere Paint and Sip Party venue in the Greater Cincinnati area” is expanding its base this December.
The new Kenwood location of Pinot’s Palette will be “right in the heart of Cincinnati, a hop, skip and jump from Kenwood Towne Center, in the Shoppes of Kenwood,” says Gautami “Amy” Alluru, the owner of the Kenwood location. Alluru, who has lived in Cincinnati for 17 years, worked in the corporate world for over a decade but always wanted to start her own business, so she decided to embrace the “vibrant art scene in Cincinnati.” So she opened the Kenwood location of Pinot’s Palette.
There are a lot of paint and sip venues out there, but Pinot’s Palette stands out from the bunch because of its “masterful artists and top-notch customer service,” Alluru says. “We provide everything our customers need to make their experience memorable, from glasses to utensils, canvas to paint. Our studios have the sophistication that our customers expect when they walk through the doors.”
Part of a larger franchise with 128 studios open in 37 states and another 64 studios that are in development, Pinot’s Palette offers a place to unwind and relax with friends. It started out at a local studio in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston, Texas, on May 6, 2009. Since then, “we’ve created over one million paintings with our customers,” Alluru says. “And while we haven’t counted the corks, our guests have enjoyed plenty of wine with friends along the way.”
Customers can enjoy birthday parties, bachelorette parties, date nights, girls’ nights, bridal showers, corporate or team events, or even just a fun Friday night. “We offer the perfect party atmosphere filled with painting, wine, music and laughs,” Alluru says. “We take care of all your party details. You just head over to the studio to have a great time!”
Pinot’s Palette offers a variety of painting classes, such as two-hour and three-hour adult classes, children’s classes called “Little Brushes,” and “Mommy and Me” classes. Guests of all painting abilities are welcome.
“The beauty of our model is that our customers don’t need to be artists or have any experience to enjoy the experience and create a memorable painting,” Alluru says. The monthly public painting calendar, telling which classes are available each month, is posted two weeks in advance. Customers sign up for classes by selecting their painting of choice. Two-hour classes are $35 per person and three-hour classes are $45 per person.
Alluru says she hopes that the Kenwood location of Pinot’s Palette will soon become a household name in the Greater Cincinnati area, and she hopes that the franchise will reach all 50 states soon.
