This tiny mall, located in the "Calle Florida" has some beautiful paintings on the ceiling. I would recomend people that are in the area to stop at least for a cup of coffe to enjoy the art and the arquitecture. They don't have too many shops, so if you are not nearby, don't go there just for the shopping experience... (Unless you are staying in BA for a long time)
Prune shop for leather bags and shoes, very fashionable styles. Great prices, of course the conversion is very good. Very good prices compared to other leather shops.
What to buy: Never leave Buenos Aires without buying leather products. Check out Prune for fashionable bags, wallets, belts. Gramoldi for shoes.
What to pay: Average US$ 60 for a good quality leather bag. About US$ 60 - 90 for leather boots.
This is a must-see place due to the beautiful painting that is in the ceiling, right in the middle of the mall, above the fountain.
The shops are all first-class. You can get clothes, leather goods, shoes, books, etc. There's a big food court on the basement.
What to pay: For an average local this is a pricey place, but not for you guys! cos you'll divide the tap price by 3!
Located on the corner of Florida and Avenida Cordiba this mall, which building is by itself a must see, offers the more well known brnds from Argentina and the world.
They also have guided tours in which you can know the history of the building and its murals
What to buy: All kind of prudcts, mostly clothes.
What to pay: Prices are not cheap, I won't say is the most expensive place, but it's defnitely not the cheaper.
Galerías Pacífico is a very beautiful shopping mall in Centro. It is not very big mall, but the building, both from the inside and outside is magnificent. Features many trendy US and European retailers as well as Argentine.
The attracts alot of tourists and in every store almost all of the store clerks speak some English. The mall caters towards the well to do and tourists so prices are higher than in other shopping areas. Most of the shops will take US dollars for goods and services.
The center dome has frescoes and glass ceilings. The center area is also open on all levels and has a fountain on the basement level. On the lower level surrounding the fountain is the foodcourt.
What to buy: Just about everything is available.

This is the most beautiful shopping mall i can think of, it is very trendy (and expensive) but it has art all over. it s nice to walk and see even if you don t buy anything, i m sure you ll enjoy the building and the paintings by Argentine artists such as Juan Carlos Castagnino, Antonio Berni, Cirilo Colmenio, Lino Spilimbergo y Demetrio Urruchua.
Two architects: Emilio Agrelo y Roland Le Vacher projected it in 1889 inspired by a passage in Milano–Italy - in the end of the XIX century– called Galería Vittorio Emmanuele II.
Inside the building there s the Centro Cultural Jorge Luis Borges and -the famous ballet dancer`s own dance academy - Escuela de Danzas de Julio Boca.
This complex is located in an old building that belonged to Ferrocarriles Argentinos, the former Railroad Company of the State. Fortuantely, the wonderful friezes by Raúl Soldi were kept. Thus the shopping promenade is lined with artistic streaks. Its shining marble, diverse staircases and mural paintings constitute a novel and sophisticated atmosphere.
The center is home to the Centro Cultural Borges and Julio Bocca´s ballet school. There are also more than 200 stores, a number of movie theatres, and an elegant dining area with different options: from tea rooms to romantic restaurants to fast food parlors.
I don't like shoppings and doing shopping, but this is a place that is almost in the middle of everything and it has nice restaurantes and cinemas, so that's why I go there!
And also because of the cultural center that is inside it!
Wow, wow, wow. I love the fashion and the shopping in Argentina. They have beautiful clothes & for most foreigners, its not expensive.
Galerias Pacifico has everything. Mens, womens, beauty.... last time I was here I spent 4 hours there. The taxi driver was stunned to see me with so many shopping bags (which can be a danger as he thinks I am $$$ if I can shop so much)... but just remember to book your taxi.
