Upscale Shopping at the Patio Bullrich Mall

There are several excellent shopping malls in Buenos Aires and Patio Bullrich is probably the most upscale of all of them.

The mall is located in Recoleta on Posadas, directly across from the Caesar Park Hotel. Many of the most expensive hotels in the city are nearby, including Alvear Palace and the Park Hyatt, both of which charge upwards of $500 per night.

If you are looking for designer labels, this is the place to shop. Stores include Armani Exchange, Christian Dior, Kenzo, Lacoste, Max Mara, Swarovski and Zara.

One store in particular that caught the attention of my girlfriend is Morph. It’s a specialty retailer that sells unique decorative and personal products. One product we purchased is something called “hidrogel”. These are tiny clear beads that expand to the size of marbles when you soak them in water. You can then use them in decorative flower vases.

Outside the mall at the Posada entrance you will often see very young children in the dirtiest of clothes opening doors for taxis that come and go with the hope of receiving a few monedas (coins).

Patio Bullrich also has a movie theater, cafes and restaurants.

Here’s a link to the Patio Bullrich website.
