Smash Splash Is Melbourne's New Warehouse Where You Can Hurl Paint at Walls
Unleash your inner Jackson Pollock, in Smash Splash's 'splash room'.
Life can feel like it's getting more and more hectic, but, thankfully, clever Melburnians keep coming up with new, creative ways to de-stress. You'll find places where you can hurl an axe at a target, smash ceramics to bits in a private room and sweat it out to some techno beats at a nightclub-inspired spin class. And now, Melbourne's latest high-powered stress reliever has arrived, allowing you to get messy and wild with a supply of colourful paints and some white walls.
In addition to a classic smash room — where punters can unleash their destructive tendencies on unsuspecting glassware and breakables — Oakleigh's Smash Splash also plays host to Melbourne's first 'splash room', inspired by an offering that's gone gang-busters across the USA.
Here, you're invited to tap into your inner Jackson Pollock and get gloriously messy at your own private paint party. You can book the splash room for 15-minute sessions, with up to two people allowed in at once and your choice of tunes on the speakers. Prices range from $47.50–50 per person.
Don your protective gear, step inside and get as creative as you like, hurling cups of paint, smashing or batting paint-filled balloons or simply going to town with your hands or some paintbrushes. Best of all, there's not a scrap of cleaning up involved.
Book a session in Smash Splash's Splash Room, at 37 Edward Street, Oakleigh. It's open on Friday 6–8pm, Saturday 11am–6pm and Sunday 11am–6pm.
