Very cool architecture

It is worth going into. The shops are neat but the building is the real gem. Also a good place to get out of the sun.

The eclectic, unique and encompassing nature of the shops, restaurants and vibe make any trip to downtown Asheville incomplete without a visit to the Grove Arcade. Enjoy sipping coffee, cocktails and desserts at the Book Exchange while enjoying a good book. Get a haircut, buy hand made furniture, yarn, local unique gifts or dine at one of the many locally...

Large, lovely building housing some very interesting shops. It's so well-maintained. The architecture alone is worth the stop. There is a great little fresh, local produce shop inside with amazing goods at a great price.

This is a midsize urban mall versus an arcade. An almost historic building made over for a combination of businesses, offices and residences. Our Asheville/Biltmore tour stopped here for lunch. There are several good choices in the arcade and more nearby. After lunch we browsed shops featuring local artists and artisans.

My girlfriend and spent a good amount of time walking through this amazing work of architecture and I am glad this historic building was brought back to life. Also there are some nice shops.

First, it's a stunning Palladian-style 1920s building, occupying an entire city block, totally redone and restored after it was nearly ruined by years of use by the federal government. Second, it's now home to the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar, one of the coolest spots in Asheville. Third, I love the winged lions and gargoyles around the building.... More

Very nice place with a lot of potential. Many unique shops and enough to spend some time browsing but don't plan too much time. They do have a couple of nice restaurants in the building with outside entry. The place is extremely clean and they have numerous places to sit and relax. Parking is metered so bring some coins for... More

Our tour left us here for a few hours which was maybe too long. One shop had a great selection of colored gemstone jewelry, with the hard to find in quality pieces, very easy to view and get questions patiently answered. Another shop fun for me was more for the "Rcck Hound" type with amazing natural specimens on display and... More

Covering a complete city block in the north central part of Downtown Asheville (just south of I-240), the exterior of the Tudoresque Grove Arcade is definitely enough to pique ones interest. However, it is not until the visitor enters under the barrel-vaulted ceilings that the grandeur of the building is truly appreciated. Two interior corridors intersect in an octagonal space... More
