Entertainment: Build-a-Bear Workshop
If you’ve never visited a Build-a-Bear Workshop, make sure you stop by the location in Galleria Dallas. Here you can create a custom-made souvenir to commemorate your time in the city. You get to pick your favorite stuffed animal, dress it up with clothes and accessories, and even add sounds and scents. Though the shop is popular for children, Build-a-Bear Workshop has plenty of charm and fun for all ages.
Entertainment: Galleria Ice Skating Center
One of the best things about Galleria Dallas is that you can take a break from shopping and dining to get a bit of exercise. The Galleria Ice Skating Center is a public skating rink that offers hours for open skating, rentals, and even lessons for children. It costs $11 for an individual to enter the rink and $3 to rent equipment. Group discounts are available as well.
Dining: Little Katana Sushi Bar
Galleria Dallas has dozens of dining options, spanning fast food and full service restaurants in addition to options for snacks and treats. If you’ve worked up an appetite and want a premium dining experience to top off your day of shopping, go to Little Katana Sushi Bar. Try the “supremo” sushi and some warm sake.
Dining: Second Floor Regionally Inspired Kitchen
If you’re not craving sushi, plan for a meal at the Second Floor Regionally Inspired Kitchen. As the name suggests, the menu is full of classic American dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But the restaurant is perhaps best known for its cocktails and liquors. Second Floor Regionally Inspired Kitchen houses the largest Scotch collection in the city.
Regardless of whether you have an hour or an entire afternoon, there’s an adventure waiting for you at Galleria Dallas. Remember to stop by these six shops, restaurants, and entertainment options during your visit.
