Luxury Redefined: Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up Tour Arrives in Sarasota, Florida

The Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up Features a Premiere Retail Experience With Open-Air Shopping, Designer Boutiques, and Bal Harbour Shops Branded Restaurant, The Whitman.

Bal Harbour Shops, the epitome of luxury retail destinations in the United States, announces the launch of its exclusive Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up Tour, bringing the iconic allure of Bal Harbour to Sarasota, Florida.  

Located just outside University Town Center Mall on March 8th, this stop marks the second destination on a highly anticipated multi-city tour, following a wildly successful Pop-up in Raleigh, North Carolina. Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up brings the signature experience of Bal Harbour Shops to a larger audience, allowing discerning shoppers to indulge in a unique blend of luxury, fashion, and fine dining. 

Luxury brands Balmain, Etro, Tiffany & Co, Santa Maria Novella, Gianvitto Rossi, and Addict will be showcased for the first four weeks, with Cremieux, Orlebar Brown and more to be announced included for week two for this extraordinary limited-edition shopping experience, running for eight weeks only. 

For the second time in its nearly six-decade history, Bal Harbour Shops extends its coveted luxury experience beyond Miami, offering patrons in Sarasota and beyond the opportunity to immerse themselves in the essence of Bal Harbour.

Matthew Whitman Lazenby, President and CEO of Whitman Family Development, expresses excitement about this groundbreaking venture, stating, “We’re thrilled to bring the tropical luxury shopping and dining experience of Bal Harbour Shops to Sarasota for the first time in our history. With this roving Pop-up, we introduce a new and innovative solution at the crossroads of high-touch personal service and high-tech logistics, delivering on our mission to impress our guests with our distinctive level of excellence.”

Crafted by LOT-EK, the Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up spans 17,000 sq. feet and features a curated collection of elegant shops and luxury boutiques. Built from thirty custom-built shipping containers, the branded pop-up includes covered walkways with fans and a retractable canopy.
The restaurant and bar menus for The Whitman will be custom for this experience and only available at the Sarasota Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up.

The Whitman, the fine-dining restaurant seats 150 guests with a menu that features custom-created culinary and cocktail delights. Choose from entrées such as Scallops with Cashew Crema or Fettuccine With Spiny Lobster garnished with caviar. Indulge in dazzling desserts such as the Blood Orange Panna Cotta sprinkled with pistachio crumble. Imbibe a specialty cocktail – like the refreshing Saint Seventy-Five that is deliciously mixed with gin, St. Germain, lemon juice, lavender syrup, and sparkling wine.

I invite you to experience the pinnacle of luxury at the Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up while you’re in town, where every detail is meticulously crafted to evoke the grandeur and beauty of Bal Harbour. Future stops are planned in upscale cities across the Southeast, including Walton County, Florida as well as Greenville, South Carolina, if you’re interestted in more locations. The Access Pop-up experience is poised to redefine luxury retail and it’s one the shopper in you will fully enjoy!
