Here’s how to enjoy this top Paradise Coast shopping destination.
Shopping at Waterside Shops: High Fashion to High Speed
First things first: Drop your car at the complimentary valet, located at the main entrance. (Self-parking options are plentiful, too.)/div>
Anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, Waterside Shops offers a variety of shopping options, from clothing and accessories to home goods and even electronics, with a completely renovated and expanded Apple store scheduled to open soon. Go for a stroll along the palm tree-lined walkways and browse luxury goods at Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Ferragamo.
Take a test ride at the Peloton showroom—or a test drive at Tesla. If it’s high-end jewelry and watches you’re after, find them at Tiffany & Co., Rolex or Van Cleef & Arpels. There’s also plenty for more modest budgets, including Chico’s, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and Talbots. Find a full listing of stores at Waterside Shops at their online directory.
Dining at Waterside Shops: From Healthy Fare to Indulgent Classics
All that shopping is sure to whet your appetite, and Waterside Shops has plentiful choices for dining.
For an on-the-go pick-me-up, head to Ebar, located on the first floor of Nordstrom, for coffee, water, tea, hot chocolate and light snacks. For lunch or dinner, True Food Kitchen utilizes fresh, in-season ingredients on its health-conscious menu, and BrickTop’s is a top choice for its classic cheeseburgers, fresh seafood, steaks and barbecue ribs.
Enjoy classic Italian fare at Brio Italian Grille, or nab a table at Nordstrom’s Café Bistro for fresh salads, pasta, sandwiches and house-made desserts in a casual bistro setting. California Pizza Kitchen, renowned for its hearth-baked pizzas, rounds out the dining options.
Entertainment & Events: Music, Mimosas & More
There’s still more to do at Waterside Shops than shopping and dining. From January to March, relax in the center courtyard area and enjoy live music and mimosas every Sunday.
