The Grove Arcade is a must-see place in Asheville, but once you've seen it, that might be enough. It is pretty cool that you have some really nice shops in a really nice old building. But once you've seen them, well, unless you really connect with a certain store, there's not much need to return. I've been about four times,... More

Grove Arcade was built by E.W. Grove with the idea of it becoming another stunning downtown hotel to match the Grove Park Inn. Unfortunately the Great Depression interceded but not before the first three floors of the Tudor Revival / Late Gothic Revival style building were completed. It is an architectural treasure. On the first floor, there are interesting upscale... More

Not too much to see here. The architecture of the building space is impressive and worth a look-see, and there are a few shops. We would have not lingered at all but for the used book shop, which kept me busy for an hour on a rainy day.

Small arcade with ornate interior. Nice variety of shops; furniture, art, clothing, books and food. Outdoor dining. Worth just a walk through just to see the interior.

I recommend walking through the arcade to walk back in time. The vendors at the southern end are so-so, just tourist trinkets, but the food places are good and the building itself exceptional. My recommendation for the one place to make sure and visit is the bookstore--order a drink, and relax in another world.

A must-see for any architecture fan. You must enter to fully appreciate the structure and its embellishments. Early pre-cast concrete that strove to emulate hand-carved limestone and granite. Exquisite moldings and fixtures throughout. Not to mention the wonderful shops that abound on the main floor. Do yourself a favor and take the elevator to the mezzanine level of offices to... More

The Grove Arcade originally opened just as the great depression hit. It limped along until World War II, when it was taken over by the federal government as office space. Finally, about 10 years ago the property was declared surplus and the City of Asheville began to renovate it back to its original architectural splendor. It is now a truly... More

Loved this little shopping inside mall but a little disappointed in the number of shops. My sister and I shopped our way through the one floor of shops and made several purchases. We found the cutest clocks in raspberry threads. There were other stores selling local artist crafts. A few of the stores were on the expensive side and there... More

The rain was pouring, but we ducked inside after finding a nearby parking spot and enjoyed a delightful hour exploring and appreciating this lovely old landmark. The first floor is filled with shops and galleries and restaurants where we found beautifully handcrafted gifts to take home to loved ones. We are looking forward to returning and eating outside at Carmel's;... More
