Anyone who thinks that the bright pink building at North Point Mall is "just a store to buy dolls" has never been inside the doll wonderland.
The American Girl Bistro's Atlanta location is so much more. Here you can eat lunch with yours or a borrowed doll, purchase a new one or accessories to go with it, make matching t-shirts for you and your doll and even get its hair styled. The boutique sells all of the range of dolls as well as books and other themed items.
This location, part of a nationwide chain, opened in 2008 and boasts 12,000 square feet of fun. The bistro itself has a full menu with tea service and entrees. Reservations are recommended, as it can be a long wait otherwise.
Hotels nearby have even gotten in on the fun, offering packages that include pink bedding and accessories in your room, not to mention a small bed just for your doll.
