"Fun concept. I was just meeting a friend for drinks, so I didn't get to try out the painting, but looked like a good way to spend an evening in Vancouver (tipsy painting!).
The cocktails were a little on the sweet side, but the cheese plate was massive and tasty. Would order again. :)"

""Oh, hello, inner artist," says Raw Canvas. "Won't you come in and allow yourself to show?"
As your inner artist excitedly but cautiously enters the lounge, it will be eased at the notion that the inner hungry belly gets to perform first. Their delectable selection of cheese and charcuterie will set your stage, and leave you feeling satisfied as you head to the painting studio area. Oh, and don't forget to listen to your inner sommelier and grab another glass of wine on your way.
With several different sizes of canvas, each with a different price tag, your inner artist is encouraged to let loose and experiment with colours, textures, and techniques. Great music sets the stage....my inner dancer happily shared the stage with inner artist...they were great company, actually.
Wonderful date place, including a date with yourself...go for it....there is something for each 'inner' part of you."

"Is there any way I could love this place more?
Well, maybe if Jude Law worked there and spent the night flattering me. Ok, maybe not, I hear he's a DB... but he's pretty. So ANYWAY, I have nothing but rave reviews for this place. It's the #1 place I recommend people go when they come to town. Why? Here's my top six:
1) You get to hang out in a beautiful, warm, creative space.
2) You can create a fun keepsake of your trip (or nite, for the locals)
3) You'll have a blast making that keepsake (even if it's ugly, which mine are)
4) The wine, cheese, desserts, sammy's etc., are oh so tasty!
5) You'll meet new, fabulous, creative people
6) Painting is cheaper and more fun than therapy (c'mon people)
I've been here numerous times for birthdays and random parties and I've always had an incredibly memorable time. Come and paint. You'll like it."

"Drink wine, socialize with friends, enjoy a large selection of food made with local and organic ingredients - all while unleashing your inner artist. At Raw Canvas, café by day, lounge by night, you buy a blank canvas and they provide the paint and brushes for you to create whatever your heart desires.
The space is in the heart of trendy Yaletown, with an open space concept and tasteful vintage furniture throughout. A quaint and welcoming place, Raw Canvas has the comfort of a parisian grandmother's living room but with a modern and eclectic vibe.
Canvases start at $40 each. Makes for a great date night or meeting place with friends."
