You may be in search of a few things on your shopping wish list, you may be looking for a little fashion inspiration…but that doesn’t mean you can’t enhance your visit with some added experiences! In fact, at Aventura Mall, you can enjoy an entire weekend filled with not just shopping, but also delicious dishes and drinks, world-renowned art pieces, the Aventura Farmers Market, and more.
Need a little help planning your itinerary? Here are just a few things you can 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 weekend is complete without brunch – and spring is the perfect time to enjoy a memorable meal and cocktails al fresco! Treat yourself to a feast for the eyes and taste buds at beautiful Pani – recently named one of Yelp!’s Top Girliest Restaurants – or, for an international escape, opt for Serafina’s Italian dishes, Estiatorio Ornos’ Greek-Mediterranean cuisine or Motek’s Israeli-Mediterranean fare. If you are a sushi-enthusiast with an affinity for eclectic charm, Pubbelly’s mouthwatering sushi, savory 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 retro-inspired Naughty Coffee to beloved Italian Rosetta Bakery and more. 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 to get a preview of the pieces and learn more about our self-guided audio tour opportunities – then 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.
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.
