Must see when in Asheville. Great building with many lovely shops and overall space that will let you wows and oooooohhhs with excitement. If you love architecture and arts you will not be disappointed. In addition you get to see a 20 million years old crocodile fossil ( that is what sign in the window stated) from African desert.

We stopped here when we were visiting in Asheville. It is a beautiful building with an interesting story. It was very nicely decorated for Christmas. We went into a few of the shops but did not buy anything. They were all high end, expensive shops. We walked around and browsed the shops but it wasn't a place I would care... More

Visiting Asheville and we were looking for something to do on a rainy day. The building is beautiful and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Disappointed in the shops. They were interesting but over priced. Did not check out any of the restaurants. I did check the website and enjoyed learning the history of the building. Worth a look if you... More

The only positive is the architecture. The shops in the arcade are high end and very expensive. Rude workers and staff. Also, for such a hoity-toity place, the bathrooms were nasty. The shops around the arcade are interesting and have more to offer.

Lots of things to see and eat here however my favorite spot is Asheville Barber and Beard, an old style barber shop where they give excellent haircuts and have brought back the use of straight razors for shaves. I got a quick haircut, which included a shampoo that I wasn't expecting for $20. If you want a great trim like... More

I am not a mall goer and inside you will find nice shops, so if you like to shop here is one indoor venue. I went to look at the architecture, which is very lavish for a shopping market the intended purpose of this building. It is worth a walk through. They also have shops on the outside and a... More

Magnificent old building that we wish we had access to all the levels but the shops on the first floor were fun to explore. We found some nice items for home and gifts. We didn't eat there but there are a number of options that looked nice. WORTH EXPLORING!
