Mall at Millenia - Shop Like the Stars

Orlando, Florida - Review Experience

Home to 150 stores in Orlando

Ah, luxury. It’s so nice to live like the other half lives every once in a while. What better way than to shop like they do? At the Mall at Millenia, you can do just that. Go ahead; indulge.

The Mall at Millenia (or Millenia Mall) opened in 2002. It hosts the only Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s stores in Central Florida. The others are in the Miami area. Both stores, along with Macy’s, are the anchor stores for the mall. The Mall at Millenia is home to almost 150 stores, along with a broad selection of restaurants inside and outside the mall.

So what’s so luxurious or high class about the Millenia Mall, you ask? How about stores like Jimmy Choo, Tiffany’s, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci? I told you it was shopping like the celebrities! However there are less fancy stores if those names intimidate you. You can find stores like Express and Forever 21 as well.

But still, even if you don’t buy anything, it’s still worth it just to see the mall. It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s designed to look like a conservatory, with plenty of glass and water features all around. The materials used come from all over the world, which is evident looking at the floor and the skylights.

After a long day of shopping at Cartier and Prada (or just window shopping, of course), stop for dinner at one of the many dining options the mall has to offer. Over by the Water Garden entrance you can check out The Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang’s, Brio Tuscan Grille, or The Capital Grille. Upstairs in the food court which is called the Orangerie, you have your standard pizza place, ice cream, coffee, salad wraps type places. There’s also a Johnny Rockets. If you get nothing else at Johnny Rockets, do get a milkshake! They are the absolute best milkshakes EVER!

I also suggest going after hours to Blue Martini, the mall’s upscale bar/lounge. It’s super nice when you want to party in style, and if you are a martini fan, theirs are the best. Be sure to try their namesake Blue Martini. Delicious. Blue Martini is open Monday through Friday from 4 pm to 2 am, Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 2 am.

The Mall at Millenia offers such perks as valet parking, foreign currency exchange, a full time concierge, and free wi-fi access. The place even has its own post office. They thought of everything, I tell you.

The Mall at Millenia is located at 4200 Conroy Road, visible from I-4. Mall hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 am-9 pm, and Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm. Holiday hours vary.
