Abasto Shopping Mall, Buenos Aires
The Shopping Center is one of the largest in Buenos Aires.
The Art Deco building was converted into a mall in 1998 with several levels of shopping, aimed at the middle and upper-middle class
It's a great place to bring kids, with its extensive food court, enormous arcades with video games, and especially the very fun Museo de Los Ninos, located in the food court
As Abasto was one of Buenos Aires's main Jewish neighborhoods, you'll also find the only kosher McDonald's in the world outside of Israel.
There is also a large cinema complex here. The food court and cinemas here are open later than 10pm.
What to buy: Everything from apparels to appliances
What to pay: You can spend as much as you can, depends on your budget
There is a big shopping mall in the Abasto district, and you'll find pretty much anything there that you'd expect in a mall, including a movie theatre. It also has high-fashion designer boutiques (such as Yves St. Laurent and Christian Dior). The food court is also huge, and has a Kosher McDonald's (the only one outside of Israel).
The building used to be a fruit/vegetable market (since the late 1800s), but has been converted into a mall in recent decades. The interior is decorated in the Art Deco style (especially the ceilings).
What to buy: Anything you want! I bought a top from Cuesta Blanca and ice cream from the food court.

Originally designed and built to house the city's wholesale fruit and vegetable market in the late 1890's, it was renovated to be a multi-level shopping mall in 1999. It houses a 12 screen movie theater, an indoor amusement park for small children and, of course, a food court.
The stores here are more for middle-class local residents, not tourists. It is not near as upscale as Gallerias Pacifico. For a tourist this is more about seeing the building itself and the architecture than the merchandise.

One of the best shopings centre in buenos aires ...quite further from the Florida str or the downtown because its going up Corrientes boulevard at least for 25 blocks or 2.5 km from 9 de Julio Avenue ..once inside its a gorgeous architectural style and crowded by trendy clothes shops ....cinemas and place to relax and drink something...but the main activity there is getting Euros, pounds or Dollars be crazy buying all kind of stuff thanks to the low prices of everything !!
National brands are really good and so cheap and international ones maybe 60 or 70 % cheaper than in Europe !!
What to buy: men and women clothes
What to pay: not much really .... a quicksilver t shirt could cost in europe around 60 euros ..so expect to pay just 12 or 15 there !!!!!!
The largest (according to their own brochures) mall also probably has the largest food court, complete with ferris wheel, in Buenos Aires.
