Paddywax Candle Bar, an experiential retail shop that allows guests to design and hand-pour their own custom-made candle, is opening its first Birmingham location Saturday, December 21 at The Summit at 216 Summit Blvd. Suite 105, Birmingham AL, 35243.
A DIY candle pouring experience and gift shop born in Nashville, Tennessee, Paddywax Candle Bar is in a high design retail space that allows guests to disconnect and tap into their creative side. The rapidly growing company currently has six locations and an additional four are set to open by the end of the year.
How does it work?
During each one-hour candle pouring session, visitors choose a custom vessel from a selection ranging in style from traditional colored glass to modern iridescent ceramics and concrete pots. They then choose from an extensive fragrance library and craft their own candle by placing the wicks, mixing the fragrance and pouring the wax. With over 40 fragrances and 65 vessels, there are more than 2,000 combinations to be made in store. To add to the experience, there’s an actual bar at Paddywax Candle Bar with beer and wine available for purchase during the workshops so you can sip while you pour.
Fun for everyone
Perfect for a group celebration, corporate outing or new hobby; visitors will enjoy both the memorable, interactive experience and their custom-made candle. With the holidays just around the corner, a candle pouring workshop is a great gift for those who are hard to shop for every year.
Paddywax Candle Bar offers gift certificates for a candle pouring class. Each interactive candle workshop costs $40 and includes one candle, which is available for pick-up three hours after the appointment or can be shipped. While walk-in appointments can be made, customers are encouraged to make reservations online at paddywaxcandlebar.com for the workshops which are offered three to five times per day.
Wick-ed good workshops & gifts
In addition to custom candle pouring workshops, Paddywax Candle Bar will also be offering an array of curated gifts. With items ranging from candles and greeting cards to hair accessories, personal care items, and textiles, guests are sure to find the perfect gift for any occasion. Workshop participants are also given 20% off all in-store purchases after their class.
