Don’t you want to drop everything at this moment and run to the nearest mall? If so, then we’re going to stop you right here and ask you to hold out for a little while. Why? Because we want you to have, the ultimate shopping-dining experience at a glorious place, the charming Chevy Chase Pavilion.
The Chevy Chase Pavilion
Situated in the wealthy neighborhood of friendship Heights, on the border between Maryland and Washington DC, the Chevy Chase Pavilion is an architectural amalgamation of high-end retail stores with culinary excellence. Resting atop the locale’s metro station across Wisconsin Avenue from the Mazza Galleria, the beautifully designed and decorated space is every bit classy and modern. Sleek interiors, clean structures, and modernist designs are present all over the arcade. When you walk into the upscale, though relatively small, Pavilion, you’ll surely be swept off your feet. The balanced coloring of the interior space is soothing to the eye; it’s neither flashy nor completely bland.
Shops And Eateries
While the Chevy Chase Pavilion isn’t the biggest mall in the world, it does boast a wide range of boutiques, primarily carrying branded merchandise. H & M, Pottery Barn, J Crew, Ann Taylor Loft, Talbots, World Market, and Rickey & Co. Shoes are just a few names of the stores you’ll find at the center. Aside from fashion outlets, there is also a franchise of the reputable CVS pharmacy.
Restaurants, though not too many, are enough to tackle all levels of hunger. Whether you are just peckish or downright famished, you will have many options to appease your tummy. Out of all the eateries, the two most popular chains at the Pavilion are Starbucks and the Cheesecake Factory. Aside from those two, you can have a meal at any of the following places.
- Range – Modern American (Seasonal Ingredients)
- Volt Lunch Box – Salads/Sandwiches
- Cheesecake Factory – American
- Maggianos Little Italy – Italian
A Tempting Plus
The Chevy Chase pavilion shares the same building as the elite embassy suites. Renovated and reinvented by the Hilton in 2014, the all-suite hotel offers exceptional services, including cooked-to-order breakfast and the trendy Willie Bar.
If you live in Washington, Maryland, or plan to visit the region anytime soon, then don’t forget to take a quick detour to the Chevy Chase pavilion to enjoy an exquisite shopping and dining experience.
