Recoleta Distict, Buenos Aires: 80 reviews and 99 photos


The elegant shopping centre Buenos Aires Design, located behind the Cementerio de la Recoleta, is the first and only shopping centre in Buenos Aires, entirely devoted to design and decor. It houses several shops offering high quality design items, almost all of them produced in Argentina, from traditional arts, funky, eclectic pillow and furniture, bathroom accessories and tiling to carpets and much more. The best of all is Tienda Puro Diseño Argentino, a shop where more than 120 designers contribute.

In the first floor there are splendid 3000 m2 terraces called Terrazas, a section of luxurious restaurants and bars. It's also a pleasant place to relax and have a coffee, an ideal outdoors space to enjoy along with the best view of Recoleta. There are often changing sculpture exhibitions in the gardens. One of the attractions is also Hard Rock Cafe, the first Latin-American branch of the well-known international chain, and in addition, you find Buenos Aires Auditorium, a huge space for social, cultural and artistic events.

Shops are open Mon-Sat 10am-9pm, Sun 12am-9pm and restaurants and bars Mon-Sun 10am-2am
