Blu Rose Art Bistro Review

Updated: Apr 29


My Saturday morning began with my sister-in-law and I taking my kids to a new, eclectic-vibe, fun and family-oriented spot called Blu Rose Art Bistro in the heart of downtown Douglasville. Must I say, we were in for a treat! Right upon our entrance, we were greeted with friendly smiles and happy faces. Little did we know, we were their very first public art class, as they just had their soft opening a few days prior. We could tell they were excited to have us, and I was thrilled feeling like I was part of their history now.

This sold out event was targeted for adults and their little mini-me's. It was an awesome experience to participate in something like that, especially because most similar dine-in painting venues are for adults only. This place is special, because they really do want families and children to have a fun, interactive place to go in Douglasville. Perfect for us, because it's close to home and they'll offer a variety of other courses like handbuilt pottery, mask making, and acrylic painting. They'll even have a sip and paint night for the kids with their very own child friendly fizzy drinks. I love that!

Although today was supposed to be 'Mini and Me's Painting,' my three-year old daughter pretty much held her own and was in control of her own art without mommy's help. My artistic brush strokes were quickly covered over by more blues, green, blues, and blue again. Clearly that's her favorite color. If you squint (really really hard), I think her piece has a similar style and color scheme as a some of Van Gogh's work (three-year old edition LOL).

When it was time for our first intermission, we were all provided blueberry smoothies, which was a pleasant surprise and delightful treat. We then moved back into the main dining/bar and open gallery space where our instructor briefly toured us around and discussed a variety of art work samples on display. We sat at the bar for a few while we waited until it was time to go back to class and the bartender was giving us the scoop on their new menu and drink items and all that they had to offer.

After our painting session was over, they did have a nice afternoon lunch menu ready to serve AND it included a 10% discount due to your art class participation. Unfortunately, we had to make a run right after and couldn't stay for lunch, all the more reason that I'd definitely love to come back for a weekend lunch date.

Before we left, we did manage to snap a few photos just to capture our experience and the interior retro vibe Blu Rose is bringing to the city. If you're ever in the area or looking for new things to do with your kids that would be hands-on, educational, and fun, I'd definitely recommend this place.
