Aventura Mall Experience Defined By Cultural, Style & Taste
A Miami landmark and an integral part of the city’s diverse style and culture, Aventura Mall is a must-visit destination for residents and South Florida visitors. Unique experiences, a world-class art collection, eclectic dining, and cutting-edge architecture are just a few elements that make Aventura Mall more than a shopping center; it’s a remarkable playground for culture-seekers and trendsetters alike.
Sweeping views and modern design echo triumphantly through the mall. An oasis for shoppers seeking a unique experience, Aventura Mall continuously features newly-opened shops, delectable restaurants and artistic works. A dynamic, new three-level wing, designed by world-renowned architect Carlos Zapata, offers unparalleled panoramic views and unique offerings that create an experience that ventures far from the status quo.
Inspired by Miami’s spirit of openness and generosity, Apple’s two-level store complements the creativity that pulses through Aventura Mall. Designed by architecture firm Foster + Partners, the store blurs the lines of interior and exterior design, creating an expansive green space with a lush grove of trees and displays adorned with new technology. The undulating, vaulted roof provides a sustainable touch, harvesting rainwater to reduce the potable water consumption year-round. Visitors can find the help they need at the outdoor Genius Grove, play with the latest gadgets in a tranquil garden, learn a new skill at the impressive amphitheater, and discover enrichment in one of Apple’s many complimentary events.
A true paradise for shoppers, Aventura Mall is one of the most visited malls in the U.S., cultivating a lineup of the world’s most coveted brands. Pristine luxury boutiques include world-class fashion houses and designers such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Fendi, Givenchy, Burberry, Tiffany & Co., Rolex and more. In addition, the shopping center is anchored by five department stores, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, and is highlighted by 300 of the world’s most popular retailers, including Adidas, Anthropologie, H&M, Microsoft, Sephora, and a two-level Zara.
Continuing its ever-evolving lineup of retailers and experiences, Aventura Mall has recently welcomed an array of new retailers, including Madewell, Farm Rio, Messika, M Missoni, Free People and an expansion of its Carolina Herrera boutique to include men’s and children’s apparel. In addition, internet darlings like Good American, Warby Parker and Fabletics are materializing into brick-and-mortar Aventura Mall boutiques.
Once visitors have their fashion fix, there’s more on the menu. Complementing Miami’s eclectic and diverse culture, Aventura Mall’s dining experience enables visitors to brush with cuisines from around the globe. With more than 50 restaurants and eateries, guests enjoy a multitude of classics and newcomers, many offering indoor and outdoor seating, including CVI.CHE 105, Pubbelly Sushi, Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar, Serafina Miami, The Cheesecake Factory, Grande Lux Cafe, and Divieto Ristorante.
Treats Food Hall, a curated food emporium on the expansion wing’s third level, is a gastronomical delight, home to Shake Shack, Chicken Guy! by Guy Fieri, Miami’s first Figs Pizza + Pasta Bar by Todd English, Chipotle, Zuuk Mediterranean Kitchen, Poké 305, and more.
Before or after enjoying Aventura Mall’s cuisine, visitors can feast their eyes on world-class contemporary art installations by globally renowned artists. The Arts Aventura Mall program has curated more than two dozen pieces throughout the mall. Carsten Höller’s Aventura Slide Tower serves as not only a towering landmark, it’s an exhilarating slide the artist likens to “an emotional state…somewhere between delight and madness.” Adjacent to the Slide Tower is Gorillas in the Mist created by The Haas Brothers, a statue of three bronze gorillas that doubles as a whimsical outdoor fountain. Both experiential pieces are complimentary for visitors to enjoy.
The Arts Aventura Mall program, which includes pieces from Louise Bourgeois, Ugo Rondinone, Julian Opie and Jorge Pardo, also recently welcomed an iconic piece to its collection: an 8-foot tall by 8-foot long by 4-foot wide LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana, one of the preeminent figures in American Pop art. Conceived in 1966 and executed in 1998, LOVE can be found outdoors on the upper level next to Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar.
With artistry emerging throughout the center, Aventura Mall’s architecture delivers cutting-edge design and emboldened creativity. Carlos Zapata’s vision for the new wing is highlighted by an 84-foot by 50-foot glass entrance that brings the “outside in” with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. It continues with an uninterrupted, 350-foot-long skylight that provides the wing with abundant natural light.
Zapata also left his architectural mark on LEVEL THREE, Aventura Mall’s dynamic new event venue. His salient details and composition make the space an inviting, modern canvas for fêtes and ceremonies of all varieties. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the city, while the lush rooftop terrace transports guests into an enchanting oasis. LEVEL THREE has gathered an A-list following, becoming the backdrop for high-profile occasions including a fundraiser for Miami HEAT star Dwyane Wade.
“Innovation is a hallmark of everything we do,” says Jackie Soffer, Chairman and CEO of Turnberry, owner, developer and manager of Aventura Mall. “From outstanding design to a unique lineup of retailers, we believe in offering our visitors an unparalleled and culturally rich experience.”
