CHECKED OUT

If you missed Sweet Tooth Hotel, you’re in luck

When the pop-up art installation Sweet Tooth Hotel opened in Victory Park, it boasted an interactive tour of candy-filled rooms, Instagram opportunities galore, and an impressive lineup of contributing artists. The hotel and its gift shop have since closed in preparation for a new space-themed experience: Sweet Tooth Hotel 1955. But if you missed check-in, you’re in luck. Nearly all of the artists and vendors on display were Dallas-based and here to discover.

Jeremy Biggers
A multi-media artist, Biggers is best known for his paintings of glossy, oversized lips—occasionally complete with lollipops and gold teeth.

Leatherology
Creative director Rae Liu helped launch Alexander Wang’s accessories collection before co-creating her own brand in 2008 with her brother, David.

Shamsy Roomiani
The native Texan specializes in psychedelic, glow-in-the-dark sculptures called “shamstones“ and herbal smudge wands that summon good vibes.

Rob Wilson
The graphic designer behind Sweet Tooth’s bellhop icon counts everyone from UPS to Neiman Marcus as clients, while also making his own prints and stationery.

JoJo Chuang
Born in Taipei and based in Dallas, Chuang focuses on graphic design (illusionary, isometric prints) and furniture (stools inspired by hard candy).

Joy Macarons
With three locations and online ordering, this cute-as-can-be shop is our go-to for French macarons and ice cream sandwiches.
