This was an amazing old building that had been restored. It's a small shopping mall and a small market place. I love architecture building and this was just beautiful. We visited this place as we were walking the Urban Trail. A great place to stop and cool off or get a cold drink or ice cream.

Our guide told us about this building on our Gray Line Tour Trolley. To our surprise, we discovered a wonderful building with lots of local shops, an exceptional clean bathroom, air conditioning and indoors.(HOT outside) and best of all refreshing tasty ice cream cones. Take a chance, go inside, and discover another side of Asheville!

Nice little shopping area. A number of the areas were closed. Beautiful architecture for those interested in that aspect. Lots of little restaurants and locals shops.

We stopped in the Grove Arcade to kill some time on a rainy afternoon. Inside is a mix of various shops. Outside are restaurants and the bookstore entrance. If you visit the Grove Arcade, take in the beauty of the building itself. That is more interesting overall than the shops are. The bookstore and gem store are worth a stop.

The Grove Arcade is a nice walk through another time. The architecture is beautiful. I love the line of phone booths and the circular staircases that float from the second floor. Worth the look!

If you like antiques and crafts this is the place for you. The building inside is magnificent with marble floors and beautiful staircases. They have places to eat inside as well as a barber, a hair dresser and an eye center. Even if you are not buying the building deserves a look.

Both my wife and I visited the Grove Arcade building after I picked up a travel flyer on it. The flyer made it look as though there were many more shops than there actually are. The shops on the first floor were for the most part uninteresting except for one that featured Mountain Made items. Otherwise the real appeal of... More

Browsed shopping and ate here. The gem, furniture, clock, knitting, and foot spa stores were pleasant stops. Carmel's was a nice eatery, but there are other nice choices to please nearly all taste buds.

My 12 year old son and I walked through here while exploring downtown one Friday afternoon. There was vendors on the sidewalk outside with some great locally made products (candles, jewelry, art, and more). Inside was a variety of high end shops. One gem (pun intended) was a rock and mineral shop. It was jam packed with a huge variety... More
