Get your creative juices flowing with 24 North Hotel’s Paint and Sip. The Key West-style painting party is the ideal way to try out a new hobby in a chilled, welcoming, and fun environment. Perhaps you’ll discover you’re the next Mario Sanchez, a Key West native and one of America’s most prolific folk artists! Read on for all there is to know about the best Paint and Sip in Key West, held in the exclusive Republica Bar & Lounge, 24 North’s Cuban-inspired craft cocktail lounge.
The informal painting class is led by beloved Key West artist/muralist Lance Berry, who will guide you through your island-inspired painting process step-by-step, from start to finish. All supplies and materials are included (plus, your first drink!). Just bring your enthusiasm and creativity and Lance will do the rest. Check out Lance’s website for a glimpse of past creations and get an idea of what painting you may be creating.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never painted before – as long as you have a willingness to explore your inner creativity. Even if your finished product is less than satisfactory (and let’s face it, Paint and Sip in Key West allows anyone to be a bad artist - it’s all part of the fun!), you’ll still have a unique painting as a keepsake to remember your night. Plus, the low-stakes environment of Paint and Sip is further enhanced with Republica Bar & Lounge's libations to help channel the artist within.
Located within 24 North Hotel, Republica Bar & Lounge is Key West’s premiere Cuban-inspired craft cocktail lounge, featuring authentic mixology, unique charcuterie boards, nightly live music, and weekly special events.
