Here at Aventura Mall, we pride ourselves on being more than simply a place to shop: we’re a South Florida lifestyle destination, home to luxury designers and unique brands, as well as chef-led restaurants and eateries, installations and sculptures by internationally recognized artists, and the weekend Aventura Farmers Market, which brings together dozens of local artisans and food purveyors.
That being said, there’s no time like the summer to savor bold flavors, indulge in retail therapy, and discover local and international delicacies and artists. There’s plenty to do, see and enjoy in both the air conditioning and under the sunshine here at Aventura Mall – consider this your go-to Summer Bucket List!
1. Find Your New Favorite Coffee
This may not be the season for studying, but it’s always the season for coffee! Discover your new favorite cup of joe by visiting each of our caffeine queen-approved destinations, from the can’t-miss Naughty Coffee car and Coffee Bike Gourmet to cozy Rosetta Bakery – an Aventura Mall staple.
2. Embark on a Mist-See Art Tour
Grab your fellow art enthusiasts and embark on a mesmerizing art tour throughout our shopping center. Make a stop at Avant Gallery, then enjoy the journey as you discover installations, sculptures and more throughout the mall. Pro tip: Visit AventuraMall.com/Arts before your visit to plan your path and gain some insight on each artist. A can’t miss installation for summertime? Gorillas in the Mist by The Haas Brothers, which offers both playful energy and fountain-fueled tranquility in the Outdoor Courtyard. Bonus if you bring your four-legged friend along and snap a photo with each piece!
3. Dine Around the World
It’s no secret that Miami is a multicultural melting pot, filled with cuisines from around the globe … but you don’t need to trek across the entire city to taste the nation! Aventura Mall is home to a variety of chef-led restaurants and eateries with flavors and influences from all over the world. Escape to the Greek islands at Estiatorio Ornos, imagine you’re in Italy at Serafina, bite into an all-American burger at Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar, salivate over sushi and sake at Pan-Asian Pubbelly Sushi, and travel to South America at CVI.CHE 105 and Pollos y Jarras. Better yet, try a new spot, like Yip Miami (bao buns, anyone?) And once you’ve “visited” all of your bucket list countries …
4. Treat Yourself
Take the National Ice Cream Month festivities to a whole new level by indulging in the decadent flavors at #treatyourself staples such as Häagen Dazs, Kilwins and Emack & Bolio’s. Better yet, if you’re 21 and over, pull up a chair at Aubi & Ramsa or Quore Gelato for a unique, liquor-infused treat that’s double the fun.
5. Make Your Way to the Market
As the largest indoor market in South Florida, The Aventura Farmers Market showcases a diverse array of exotic foods, handcrafted goods, fresh organic produce and more. More than 75 farmers and artisans set up on the Lower Level every weekend to share their passion for baked goods, plants and flowers, specialty foods and handmade accessories – a perfect opportunity to meet local makers, discover new foods, and gift yourself something unique.
