Bottle & Bottega, Chicago’s art and wine studio, is hosting a special event, “Date Night in the City at Potter’s Lounge,” on Nov. 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. The pop-up painting party, which will take place in the Potter’s Lounge bar within the Palmer House Hilton at 17 E. Monroe St., will feature appetizers and a special Potter’s Lounge cocktail, as well as a full drink menu.
The event, which costs $40 per person, is open to the public. The fee includes appetizers, one drink and all painting supplies. Interested attendees can register on Bottle & Bottega South Loop’s website at
Bottle & Bottega is one-part artistic adventure and one-part cocktail party, combining painting lessons with wine and beer for a fresh experience for celebrating birthdays, bridal or baby showers, bachelorette parties, or simple gatherings of friends, as well as a change from routine corporate events by empowering groups and bonding teams in interactive settings.
The hands-on art sessions can focus on painting on a canvas, creating a mosaic, wine glass painting, jewelry making and live models, and are held at either a chic and spacious Bottle & Bottega studio, an off-site partner location (restaurants, bars, wine shops), or in private homes or corporate venues.
Only three years in business, Bottle & Bottega is taking off fast. In addition to the South Loop studio, there is one company-owned studio in Lakeview and three franchised locations in the suburbs. A national expansion is also underway, with new locations recently opened in Denver and Portland. Projections call for the opening of 30 locations within the next 18 months, with 160 locations nationwide by the end of 2015.

About Bottle & Bottega
Bottle & Bottega's hands-on art sessions created by Stephanie King-Myers and Nancy Bigley allow anyone to uncork their inner artist and create something of their own. The unique approach, which combines various forms of hands-on art instruction with a glass of wine, has helped create lasting memories for Bottle & Bottega guests since 2009.
