Nice shopping

We were here for a special event so some of the stores were closed. The building is great - amazing history.

This place is definitely not an arcade. Several shops that are very product specific. Unless you are looking for a specific item, might want to check to make sure they have what you might be looking for.

A lot of interesting shops and it was inside, out of the heat. I visited an very impressive crystal shop called "Into the Earth". I want to come back to the Arcade when I have more time.

Lovely building with a variety of shops; gifts, clothing, art, local crafts, yarn & fibers, furniture, jewelry, candy & fudge, a terrific bookstore/coffee/wine bar, and several restaurant choices. Metred street parking. Parking garage nearby (very reasonable rates).

Great adaptive reuse of an historic building as is the old hotel across the street. Several high end shops, with locally made products, a pleasant change. Worth a stop if in the area, but probably not as a destination. The used bookstore across the street is worth a trip for bibliophiles.

There is a lot less stores here than you'd think. This place is huge but only the ground level has stores in it because the next level is offices and the levels above that are filled with apartments. It's a weird mix of stores and several of them are restaurants/spas. It's not a place you could spend an afternoon. You... More

Worth a visit as much for the architecture as the stores, this building sports some excellent detail work in a well-turned out space.

The Grove Arcade is an interesting building and a part of Asheville's early architectural history. The top floors have been converted into residential areas, but there are unique shops on the first level, as well as a good restaurant. A fun time to go is during the Christmas holidays when gingerbread houses/scenes made by children are displayed. Santa is usually... More
