The rule at Sweet Tooth Hotel is that you can't eat the dozens of doughnuts, lollipops, macarons and cakes on display. It's only fair, then, that you can touch them. And poke, squeeze and caress you shall.
Just don't be weird about it.
Sweet Tooth Hotel is an art installation similar to the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami. It's a fake hotel filled with artistic creations that look like desserts. And it doesn't matter if you've been to an Instagrammy art installation like this before: This one in Dallas is delicious.
For $20 per person (or $40, if you want a key to unlock cupboards in rooms of the hotel), attendees get one hour to traipse through the Sweet Tooth Hotel. Take photos: They want you to.
The concierges act as if they are running a legitimate hotel — one Wes Anderson might appreciate. Mine offered a quick, informative tour before she unleashed us to discover the hotel's quirks on our own. The experience was almost like finding a glittery speakeasy: Behind each door was an unexpected surprise.
