South Florida is world renowned for its unmatched sun, surf and shopping. Visitors come from all over the world to see what this beautiful area has to offer.
One of the most popular locations with a combination of the three s’s is Bal Harbour Shops located within blocks of the blue surf and white sandy beaches near Surfside, Florida.
This upscale open-air luxury retail area started attracting shoppers back in 1965. Its first tenant was famous toy retailer, FAO Schwarz. Department stores decided to take up residence shortly thereafter and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as Neiman Marcus opened their doors and have been there ever since. High-end designers got word of this lovely shopping mecca and decided to open boutiques as well. Gucci opened its 5th United States store and Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Emilio Pucci were other big names in the fashion industry that took up residency in this opulent mall.
Today, Bal Harbour Shops have expanded beyond belief. There are 100 stores and the store directory reads like a Who’s Who Among Top Name Designers. From Diane Von Furstenberg to Michael Kors to Prada to Ralph Lauren, you can find whatever you are in search of. Shop clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, books, gifts and more.
Trunk shows have become regular events and the Resort Preview Show of Trina Turk makes its way to the mall on November 3rd. Indulge yourself in popular spa facial events that take place periodically.
With the festive holidays coming up, why not wow your friends with the studded satin lace pump available at Giorgio Armani. What could be more exquisite than the archives-inspired bangle with an oval tanzanite, pink sapphires, diamonds and enamel in 18 karat gold. This is limited edition jewelry available exclusively at Tiffany & Co.
After an exhausting day of lavish shopping pleasure, unwind in the superb restaurants of Makoto, Carpaccio, La Goulue, Santa Fe, Segafredo or the Zodiac Cafe.
Bal Harbour Shops even have their own app now so you can see all the newest trends and find out what stores are offering these headturning styles. Mix and mingle with a martini or a Mojito.
The mall can boast being one of the only family-owned and operated malls in the area giving it a very friendly and warm appeal. Expansion is underway for 30-40 new specialty shops, a Cinebistro Dine-In Luxury Theater and more.
