Paint ‘N Pour Scouts Delancey Street for New Studio

Posted on: May 31st, 2019 at 5:00 am by

The paint-and-drink concept initially planned for the Fat Baby space is now gunning for a different spot on Delancey Street.

Paint ‘N Pour, one of many companies that lure customers by pairing paint classes with drinking, is currently headquartered in Harlem. Its owner, Tinesha Sharpe, previously met defeat at the hand of Community Board 3 in April due to the history of compliance issues at 112 Rivington. The advisory panel remains strongly against any full liquor license in this commercial space. However, there was reassurance that, if a better location presented itself, then an approval would likely follow.

So Sharpe fell back to the initial store considered – the old Doka Square space at 57 Delancey Street, which shuttered last year.

Yet, this location might potentially pose another hurdle, as there is an active church adjacent – Templo Adventista del Septimo.

When asked about the need for a full liquor license for a paint studio business, Sharpe noted the fierce competition.

“We’re not interested in a beer and wine license, it’ll make us no different than our competitors,” she told us in an email. “We want to offer an array of beverages (wine, sangria, cocktail, mock tail, etc) to our guests, making us their top choice for a paint n Sip experience. Not to mention, rents are high and steadily climbing.”
