You may have a few things on your must have list or looking for a little fashion inspiration, but that does not mean you need to take care of it all in one day. In fact, at Aventura Mall, you can plan all-weekend event filled with shopping, delicious dishes and drinks, world-renowned art pieces, the Aventura Farmers Market and more.
Need a little help planning your itinerary? Here’s just a few things to enjoy all weekend long, the Aventura Mall way:
Perhaps we’re biased, given all of the wonderful restaurants at Aventura Mall, but we’re firm believers that no special Sunday occasion is complete without brunch – and spring is the perfect time to enjoy a memorable meal and cocktails al fresco. Treat yourself (and maybe a friend or two) to a feast for the eyes (and taste buds) at beautiful Pani, or, for an escape to Europe, opt for Serafina’s Italian cuisine. If you are a sushi-enthusiast with an affinity for eclectic charm, Pubbelly’s mouthwatering sushi, new brunch dishes and funky cocktail glasses will be sure to please. And, if your taste buds sway toward Latin roots, CVI.CHE 105 and Pollos y Jarras are the perfect choice. Trust us: there’s a restaurant for every personality and flavor preference. The tough part will be making a decision, but don’t fret – you can always try something new the weekend after!
If you want to browse unique, hand-made gifts, and enjoy foods from around the globe, search no further than our Aventura Farmers Market, where you can meet local farmers and artisans – and give back to the South Florida community – as you shop small businesses. From customized painted hats and Turkish handbags to homemade pastries from the Caribbean, South America and Europe, the Aventura Farmers Market is a wonderful representation of the region’s talented cultural melting pot, showcasing a diverse array of florals and succulents, produce, desserts, handmade goods, accessories, home decor and more.
The Aventura Farmers Market is located on the Lower Level.
Before you kick off the day shopping, caffeinate at one of various coffee shops, from beloved Starbucks to retro-inspired Naughty Coffee and Italian Rosetta Bakery. Whether you love your classic coffee ritual or is the first to try a unique flavor at a local spot, the possibilities are endless – and that doesn’t even include more luxurious stops, such as Ladurée, where we highly recommend pairing coffee or tea with decadent macarons.
From Avant Gallery’s critically acclaimed contemporary art exhibits to our very own Arts Aventura Mall collection, you can enjoy a variety of works from local and internationally recognized artists, including Tim Tadder’s buzzed-about photo series at Avant Gallery to the striking Aventura Slide Tower by Carsten Höller and serene Gorillas in the Mist fountain by The Haas Brothers. Murals, sculptures, installations – there’s no shortage of art mediums to discover throughout Aventura Mall. Our favorite for a photo shoot? The LOVE Sculpture by Robert Indiana, which serves as the perfect backdrop.
Pro Tip: Visit AventuraMall.com/Arts ahead of your visit to map out your self-led Mother’s Day art tour – and challenge your family to take a photo with each piece!
From Pani’s decadent cakes and Ladurée’s famous macarons to international delights at the Aventura Farmers Market and classic ice cream at Treats Food Hall, desserts are available at just about any corner. Better yet, for an adult-approved treat, head on over to Aubi & Ramsa for spirit-spiked flavors like the Chocolate Azteca Mezcal Ice Cream and Strawberries and Rosé, or enjoy liquor-infused gelato at Quore. While you can take each of these desserts to go, we’d be surprised if they make it out our doors.
Here’s a limited-time surprise you don’t want to miss: Aventura Mall is going big for Mother’s Day with a series of fun pop-up displays, DIY gifting opportunities and special guests!
To wrap up your weekend on a cozy note, catch a film at our on-site AMC 24 movie theatre, which features luxurious reclining seats, all of your favorite concessions and screens that bring films to life.
