“Beautiful Mall with Movies & Other Amenities but Lacking Activity and Stores”

The Shops at Sunset Place
Ranked #1 of 19 things to do in South Miami
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 August 2017

This is a very nice looking mall but unfortunately over time has deteriorated and never took off. Originally it was a hub of activity for the neighborhood but had various problems and turn-over of stores. The parking is dark and somewhat not friendly therefore it has been a cause of some of the issues. The original Virgin Records store drew customers and activity during their time but once closed the place has been mostly empty with various tries by stores that have eventually failed at the location. Perhaps not having a proper entry from Red Road has also impacted it negatively. Restaurants and bars have come and go so the lack of consistency has been detrimental. Only the LA Fitness and Cinemas seem to have been there for a long time as well as some stores such as Barnes and Noble but the activity and atmosphere has never been the same. There are rumors that the new owners will re-do the facility and hopefully address the issues mentioned. Hope so as the local residents can highly benefit of a great place to visit close by. With its closeness to Coral Gables, South Miami and Pinecrest, if done properly, it should succeed.

Great open air shops where you can come check out for bowling, shopping, movies or eating. All round fun with the family if you're into those types of entertainment

The stores are nothing to write home about. Then the parking isn't either. The one big reason we frequent sunset place is because of the movie theater with reclining seats. My wife and I hadn't been to a movie theater in years because of the uncomfortable chairs, but then we found sunset place and recliner's in the theater, for a disabled vet with serious back pain this was a godsend. If you are looking for a nice eatery there's restaurants all around, but the sunset place we don't go for the food. We watch a movie my wife and girls walk around a little bit while I wait on a bench. They know they have to be back within 30 minutes that's the longest I can sit on the bench.

Love to come here for the movies since their theaters are big and comfortable. Doesn't have a lot to choose from when it comes to shopping but it does have shops that are quite known. Although it'd be nice if they had more. The food is amazing depending on which restaurant you go to, but of course on weekends it is always packed so be aware of that.
