BEST SHOPPING MALLS
First open to the public in 1988 and subsequently expanded in 1995, the now legendary Patio Bullrich sits in a property formerly owned by the family of the same name, designed by English architect Juan Waldorp and constructed in 1867.
Situated in the upscale Retiro district, the magnificent neoclassical building now plays host to Buenos Aires’s premier shopping mall, with the Bullrich containing a wide variety of outlets offering high quality goods from some of the world’s most desirable brands, with the advantage of being located right in the heart of the city. As well as offering quality shopping opportunities, the mall has several restaurants to help sustain those in pursuit of rest and relaxation when hunger sets in following a hard day’s shopping.

Ideally situated in the centre of the city on the corner of two bustling streets, the narrow, pedestrianized Calle Florida and the enormous, Manhattan-esque Avenida Córdoba, Galerías Pacífico offers style and convenience to those searching for everything under one roof. Housed in a magnificent building that has been listed as a historic national monument since 1989, the mall is perfectly in keeping with the reputation of the neighborhood of Recoleta as an upmarket destination replete with high class shopping and dining facilities. Pacífico first opened in 1992 and features stores from internationally recognized brands, including Christian Lacroix and Polo Ralph Lauren. The mall stays open until 9pm every day of the week, even on Sundays, offering discerning shoppers flexibility as well as style and choice.

Florida y Avenida Córdoba
Shopping in the fashionable district of Palermo moved into a different league when Alto Palermo opened its doors for the first time in 1990, with this mall combining chic style and an impressive number of shops, making it one of the best places to buy luxury goods in Buenos Aires. With a focus on attracting female shoppers, the mall offers a pleasant alternative to browsing the boutiques in Recoleta or Palermo itself, shielding those in search of that special something from the elements, while at the same time offering variety and unquestionable quality. Alto Palermo celebrated its 20th birthday in 2010 and, featuring stores such as Christian Lacroix, Dior and Calvin Klein, has long established itself as a premier retail destination within Argentina’s capital. An array of cafés and restaurants provides a perfect complement to the excellent shopping on offer.
