Nancy & Stephanie

Bottle & Bottega, founded in March 2009, is Chicago’s first wine and art entertainment studio offering a fun, unique alternative to an ordinary night out! One part artistic adventure and one part cocktail party, Bottle & Bottega is great for get-togethers with friends, creative corporate retreats or any special events!

Bottle & Bottega is the artistic stroke of genius of Stephanie King-Myers and Nancy Bigley, two exceptionally creative and driven women who left their successful careers in Corporate America to pursue their passions and devote their vision, talent and energy to a collaborative business of their own.

With the success of Bottle & Bottega in Chicago, where the company is headquartered, Stephanie and Nancy started expanding their concept in 2011 through national franchising. “There is no greater feeling than to see your vision replicated, bringing smiles and success to others across the country.” – Nancy Bigley, CEO and Co-Owner.


It’s an art party!

Our fun, eclectic look, upscale approach, and emphasis on real art, has helped create lasting memories for thousands of Bottle & Bottega guests.

It’s Not An Art Class, It’s an Art Party!

Scratch the structure.  Lose the lecture. The only lesson to be learned here is that you do have an inner artist, just waiting to be realized! Bottle & Bottega is all about friends, a canvas and a bottle of wine.  Bottle & Bottega parties are FUN and a chance to try something new in a relaxed and encouraging environment. The Bottle & Bottega experience truly is yours to design!

“I have never been artistic but since coming to Bottle & Bottega, I love to paint. This was my 3rd event with B&B. And I’ve already signed up for another one. With the instructors, anyone can do it!”

— Lucy S.

Celebrate your Inner Artist!

Anyone can do this…really! It’s like magic.  Even when our “Botteganistas” think that they don’t have creative chops – after a couple of hours (and glasses of wine), they emerge with an impressive work of art and an unexpected sense of pride in their accomplishment.

Art for Everyone

No pretensions.  Bottle & Bottega presents art, in many different formats, in a way that everyone can engage with and find enjoyment in.  It’s not about what’s “good,” it’s about what’s “fun.”  Because fun is what’s good.
