Beautiful building and stores. Thought there would be more to it for all the hype. Some storefronts were empty.

This place is not what I thought it was going to be based upon reviews and websites. It was definitely outside my budget. We thought it would be local crafts and wares but it wasn't.

After walking all over town, this was a cool place to stop for a break. There are some nice shops and restaurants and the architecture of the building is very nice.

This is a really cool place to shop! The mix of shops is very good. Parking was a little crazy but worth it. There are some good restaurants there as well and you can walk around downtown after you park. Everything is close.

Every visit to Asheville includes daily late-afternoon walks to the Grove Arcade on the edge of downtown. We stay at the Hotel Indigo and walk 2 blocks to the beautiful Art Deco building where we enjoy the architecture, shop at a wide assortment of shops (some with locally crafted items), eat fig/prosciutto pizza at Modesto's, sample wines at Sante's Wine...

the Grove Arcade in downtown is a fascinating architectural interest with gargoyles carved to resemble the Men of Asheville back in the days of construction. It currently houses offices and several stores and restaurants. These are worth a look as I found several gifts there and a very nice selection of many of the local craftsmen and Mountain Made items.... More

I really enjoyed the Grove. It was a nice market with a lot of independent businesses. We found a lot of unique items and all the owners were real friendly and helpful.

The Grove Arcade is an example of one of the old turn-of-the-century arcades. It has been beautifully restored and is a must-see if you are in the Asheville area.

The decorations are very nice and appear to have been made just for this building. And to top it off, many of the overflow gingerbread houses from the Grove Park Inn are on display here. There are usually many more entries than they have space for so many of those that did not place in the top ten are on... More

The Grove Arcade is a must-see in Asheville. Stop by the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar first and have a coffee or glass of champagne, and then stroll through the shops at the Arcade. This time of year there are gingerbread houses on display, and there are many restaurants to eat. There are also street artists outside selling... More
