Pinot’s Palette Bringing Wine and Art to 178 Stanton Street

The Moldy Fig was an ambitious idea that pretty much faceplanted after an unfortunate turn of events. Launched on Memorial Day weekend two years ago, the jazz club foundered in concert with one of its owners. By November of that year, Charles Brown of Fat Cat fame was hospitalized with an unspecified illness. That spelled the end of Moldy, and the venue has remained dormant ever since. Even the awning and signage are still in place.

But those days in the dust (or dare we say, mold?) could be concluding. Replacement. If the upcoming SLA agenda is any indication, Community Board 3 and will soon hear the case for something very different for 178 Stanton – a franchise location of Pinot’s Palette. This organization, founded in 2009, pairs painting classes with wine. Pinot’s handles the art supplies, plates, and wine glasses. Classes are reportedly instructed by a “local, trained artist.”

The closest Pinot’s Palette to open around here was in Montclair, New Jersey a couple months ago.
