Take yourself on a mesmerizing journey through the looking glass at Wonderland Dreams, an interactive art experience and bar in Midtown!
Created by artist Alexa Meade, this 26,000-square-foot immersive dreamscape is inspired by the magic of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. 20 rooms of floor to ceiling paintings transport visitors to a world of giant playing cards, secret rose gardens, and mad tea parties, and puts them inside the paintings themselves in a living gallery.
Every inch of the space is hand-painted using Meade’s signature 3D painting style which makes the world appear to be a 2D work of art. Guests become the subject of each painting, bringing each seemingly endless room to life and making them feel like they’ve stepped out of reality.

You can’t imagine what lies in store for you inside Wonderland Dreams. Become the Queen of Hearts by taking your seat on her throne, ride a rocking horse in a golden field as giant magical flowers bloom, and bask in the light of glowing lanterns as you become the Mad Hatter calling on those around you to join for Tea Time.
After meandering through the magic guests will find a wine bar and café based on storytelling where they can order drinks that seem like they’re from a fairytale, such as The Hatter’s Tea or We’re All Quite Mad. Themed small plates and snacks accompany the drinks as well.
Guests can even take home their own piece of the magic, choosing from gift shop items such as clothes, playing cards, or one-of-a-kind 3D painted art objects.
Embark on a mesmerizing journey through the looking glass within this fantastical installation.
“I believe art should make everyone feel welcome and leave them inspired, which is exactly my goal with the experience. At Wonderland Dreams, everyone who walks into the exhibit becomes part of this living work of art,” said Alexa Meade.
The centrally located exhibition space is situated on 5th Avenue and 44th Street, and is open to visitors of all ages. Due to popular demand, the exhibit has been extended through the summer!
