This building has a lot of rich history. It is also now home to many shops that have different types of hand-made items, and a great clock shop as well. This place is also located in the Arts District where you can easily walk to some of the other local shops, including a retro bookstore.

The Grove Arcade is a large building in downtown Asheville which houses a variety of shops and restaurants. The architecture of the building is as much an attraction as the shops inside. It is definitely worth a visit when in downtown Asheville.

The building it self is worth seeing, even if it wasn't full of great shops and restaurants. Quaint art galleries, jewelry store, knit shop, candy shop, boutiques, and more. Worth the stop!

the arcade is nice enough, and it has considerable architectural appeal, but the stores are small and cramped. We were literally bumping into everyone else trying to get around. and it was not overly crowded. The shops are more "boutiques" generally, and you can find some unusual items there. They also have several restaurants. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with... More

I enjoyed the building more than anything. There are lots of artist shops inside and restaurants outside. The building is so beautiful, with the stone, wrought iron, sky lights and greenery, very beautiful.

Although the building is beautiful we were disappointed in downtown Asheville -too many high priced shops, the café we went into for a cup of coffee had unfriendly staff- streets and park were dirty. Will not visit again- why walk around and look at storefronts? Not impressed.

Don;t miss walking through the Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. The shops inside are interesting but the building itself is the real attraction. Beautifully designed and preserved the building glitters with the romance of an earlier, softer time. It is really beautiful and filled with interesting quirky local independent shops. Shop local! It;s important to keep these gems open!

You can picture the way this mall was occupied back in the 1920s. Very clean with lots of detail- great restoration. Interesting stores. Worth a visit. We met here for the food tour.

See this by ALL means. I am not a shopper but it is worth on street metered parking to take in the wonders of this architectural showplace. Great shops, too.
