In a unique city, this is the perfect centerpiece. The architecture is AMAZING. I wish the staircases were open. Great variety of shops and especially liked the crafters tables on the side. A happening place.

A really nice old building in downtown Asheville with a number of small and unique shops. Not that big, but not bad for a stop or if you're shopping for something a little different.

The Grove Arcade was being built in downtown Asheville as a 14 story shopping mall by Dr. Grove who also built the Grove Park Inn. Only four stories were built before Dr. Grove passed. The architecture and design are amazing. The details, concrete sculpture, rod iron stair cases, just beautiful. The shops and restaurants are on the first floor and... More

Okay so I'm not really into shopping, but this building is really cool. It was the first strip center in the country and is beautiful architecturally. Just think, this place was almost razed.

This is a beautiful building with several unique shops. If you are in downtown Asheville and want to take a half hour or so to browse through some furniture, crafts, jewelry and a great bookstore, this is a nice stop. The architecture itself is worth seeing, the shops are icing.

This is a pretty nice shopping arcade and very low key. NIce that it is enclosed to protect you in poor weather. Some upscale but mostly local merchants are here and it has a nice feel to it. Lovely spot to spend money

Higher end stores, quality eateries, REALLY good fudge. Clean, well-maintained, picturesque, and within walking distance of many other (cheaper) options. Very convenient location.

We have been here several times, each time hoping it will improve but the sad truth is this "arcade" is filled with a conglomerate of shops offering overpriced "stuff". The building itself is nice to walk through if you are interested in architecture. We now only use this to get out of inclement weather when visiting Asheville.
