Despite the name, Sweet Tooth Hotel is not a hotel in Dallas, which is a shame because it’d be one of the coolest places to stay the night. Rather, it’s a temporary art pop up and its turning Dallas heads like no other pop up has before.

Sweet Tooth Hotel brought together local artists to create wonderful artwork for five rooms in a 1,200-square foot area at 2316 Victory Park Lane. The pop up runs until August 31st and is currently only available in Dallas (there’s no plans as of yet to go to other cities). Since its opening in May, it has blown up on Instagram.

But in the end in wonderland, we both went mad

There are five “hotel” rooms at the Sweet Tooth Hotel, titled Sunset Lounge, Sprinkle Spa, Dream Suite, Candy Cuisine, and the Surprise Room. As the name implies, every room has a sugar-theme and interactive elements based on popular treats. Visitors will find jaw-dropping artwork and fun things to do in these brightly-colored spaces, as well as The Gift Shoppe, run by Leatherology, where visitors can shop for goods from brands like JOY Macarons, Read Between the Lines, Kendra Scott, Hairstory, and Valfré.

Sweet Tooth Hotel was thought up by husband and wife duo, Cole and Jencey Keeton, and created with the help of Built By Bender — who built the rooms — and artists like Jeremy Biggers, Shamsy Roomiani, Jojo Chuang, Chelsea Delzell, and Rob Wilson.

So, what will you find at Sweet Tooth Hotel? Shamsy Roomiani’s “Rainbow Confection” installation has candy raindrops and cotton candy clouds. Speaking of her installation, Roomiani said, “I was inspired to create a space made of plant raindrops, cotton candy clouds, my fluorescent crystal Shamstones, and neon rainbows. The title of my installation, ‘Rainbow Confection,’ is my nod to Jim Henson’s ‘The Rainbow Connection.’”

Prep yourself for candy-themed furniture, neon lights, bold wall designs, sugar-inspired wigs, kitchen cabinets with elaborate cakes, and amazing hand-drawn uniforms worn by staff. For $20–$40, you’ll get one hour to satisfy that sweet tooth craving at Sweet Tooth Hotel. You have until August!

Sweet dreams!
