  • All materials are provided and you are off to the creative races! We did one mermaid and one dolphin. The mermaid fared better than the dolphin, but we still had a great time.  more »
  • Went with our youngest daughters (10 and 12). Had a great time. And turns out they serve wine while doing the painting! Only downside is that they only offer two items for painting.  more »

  • Love it, Really fun and time consuming. Can paint a Dolphin or Mermaid with many different colors! Can add glitter, seashells, mini starfish, etc. Can add little skirts and there's a gift shop filled with many cool items. Can make little Mermaid ornaments.
  • My daughter attended a birthday party there and enjoyed it. The artwork was a nice foundation and the staff were very friendly.
  • Fun for kids and adults! Make sure you make a reservation or call ahead instead of just showing up because they have a lot of birthday parties. For adults they give you a complimentary glass of wine for while you paint!
  • Staff is not very attentive, once they give you a basic rundown of paints and glitter you are on your own. If over 21 you get two glasses of wine, but you have to ask for it. Last time they acted like I was an inconvenience. But the mermaids are awesome and it is a great place to take kids. Must call and make reservations as the day is broken down into blocks. Even when the place is empty.
  • Such a fun time! Went here for my birthday party and all of us girls enjoyed every moment. A little expensive when buying for more than one person, but definitely well worth the money because of the fun experience.

Where to stay in Norfolk

A stay downtown is the best way to access all the central attractions and the harbor. Most of the downtown hotels are chains known for providing luxury and multiple amenities; however, there are a few independent inns and bed and breakfasts. Some of these offer full suites.
