Driving around Asheville on a freezing cold day, we escaped for warmth into the Grove Arcade and were more than delighted to find some wonderful boutiques and interesting people running them. We must have spent two hours wandering in and out of the shops, stopping to chat with the staff in most of them, and making some purchases of locally... More

Nice art business in an indoor mall of sorts but More uptown elegant. If you're looking for unique pieces you could look here.

It's some miscellaneous shops in a pretty building. That's pretty much it. You can't go upstairs (those are offices) and the shops vary widely in quality and interest. Strongly suggest checking out the floorplan to see if there's a store of specific interest to you first -- we were really feeling tricked by the brochures that made it seem like... More

Fun little shops and restaurants. Right in the middle of Asheville, so it is convenient to everything downtown. The history of the building is written up inside, and many of the shop owners can give you more details.

Must see when in Asheville. Great building with many lovely shops and overall space that will let you wows and oooooohhhs with excitement. If you love architecture and arts you will not be disappointed. In addition you get to see a 20 million years old crocodile fossil ( that is what sign in the window stated) from African desert.

We stopped here when we were visiting in Asheville. It is a beautiful building with an interesting story. It was very nicely decorated for Christmas. We went into a few of the shops but did not buy anything. They were all high end, expensive shops. We walked around and browsed the shops but it wasn't a place I would care... More

Visiting Asheville and we were looking for something to do on a rainy day. The building is beautiful and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Disappointed in the shops. They were interesting but over priced. Did not check out any of the restaurants. I did check the website and enjoyed learning the history of the building. Worth a look if you... More

The only positive is the architecture. The shops in the arcade are high end and very expensive. Rude workers and staff. Also, for such a hoity-toity place, the bathrooms were nasty. The shops around the arcade are interesting and have more to offer.

We liked this cool building with all the shops that one can find inside! We also enjoyed the inside architecture of the building which is unique!
