About this venue

Come paint and party at a Worceser landmark! Enjoy a delicious cocktail or the staple PBR and snack on burgers, chili and chips all while you create and play! Your Paint Nite artist will walk you through the entire painting from start to finish, while you RELAX AND HAVE FUN! 

The diner, built in 1930 by the Worcester Lunch Car Company (the first to manufacture diners operating from 1906 to 1957) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was moved to its current location and connected to a 19th century 2 story brick building that was originally a fire station and so was born “Ralph’s”.

The atmosphere is best described as eclectic. Antiques and neon adorn the walls and ceilings, and hand painted murals are everywhere, a sort of curated carnival of curiosities. The diverse live entertainment is drawn from local, national and international artists and has featured many famous performers. Bi-monthly Metal Thursdays have been a staple since 2006, while the Dirty Gerund Poetry Show has been going strong every Monday since 2009. Ralph’s also projects movies and video games on the outside patio, hosts vintage auto and motorcycle shows as well as private parties. 

*This is a 21+ venue. Food and drinks can be purchased separately from your Paint Nite ticket, through the venue. BYOB is not allowed.*
