Do I need to make a reservation?
Usually, NO reservations are needed to paint with us! Our studio is an OPEN studio, so even if we have birthday parties going on, you can always walk in and paint.
If you have a group of 6 or more, reservations are recommended just so we can make sure we have the tables arranged when you come.
If you are coming with a group of small children aged 6 and under and/or where muiltiple parents will be staying and not painting, reservations will be required in advance so we can be sure we can accomodate your group. We ask that you carpool and if not possible, please park your cars on Martin Place and not in our parking lot. There will be a 15% fee for groups of 6 or more.
Also, if you are coming in the afternoons or evenings, our last seating is always 90 minutes before published closing times. If we have no painters by that time, we usually close up for the night. We'd hate for anyone to come when we're already closed, so if you are coming in the evening, please let us know. Our later nights are Thursday through Saturday when we close at 9:00, so our last seating is at 7:30.
Occasionally, we will be having event nights where we will probably close later. Those events will be posted on our event calendar.
Can I bring food or drinks?
You can bring wine or beer, but no outside food unless written authorization has been given by Ready to Paint staff in advance. We will be having snacks, soft drinks and coffee available for purchase very soon and look for our event nights where some will have snacks included!
Do you charge studio fees?
No studio fees are charged. All paints and supplies are included for each item.
Do you charge sitting fees?
The only time sitting fees are applicable is when there are multiple non-painters in a group. Sitting fee will only be charged to the non-painters.
If I make a reservation, how long will you hold our table?
We will hold your table for 10 minutes if we have not heard from you. If you are running late, please call as soon as possible or we may have to release your table to waiting customers. If you lose your table, we will accomodate your group as soon as possible.
Are there additional charges for groups?
A 15% service charge will be added to groups of 6 or more, regardless of whether they pay individually or as a group.
