Patio Bullrich is a posh shopping mall in Recoleta that is a must see for its neoclassical architecture and beautiful shoppers.  This upscale shopping center is a place to see and be seen, but actually buying clothing here can break the bank.  This is where you will find many high end designers like Versace and Christian Doir.  A lot of the stores display prices in USD, so a 250 pair of shoes is really $250.  It is very difficult to lose the habit of dividing everything by three before you determine the real price!


Patio Bullrich Shopping Center

The building was originally built as an auction house in 1867.  The auction items included valuable collections and livestock, but it was best known for its thoroughbreds.  The Bullrich family hired English architect Juan Waldorp to design the auction house.  Today the mall maintains some of the original aspects of Waldorp's design, including a massive clock tower and statues of animal heads.  The building wasn’t converted into a mall until 1988.  A priority was made to preserve the classical architecture while integrating some modern elements into its design.

After a day walking around the historic barrio Recoleta and visiting the nearby Recoleta Cemetery made famous by Evita Peron, the Patio Bullrich Shopping Mall is a pleasant place to sit in air conditioning sipping a soda at one of their posh cafés. If you are looking to spend a lot of cash, check out some of their pricey shops, like Asstton, Chocolate or Style Watch.  There is even an upscale wine and cheese shop, Valenti, located on the second floor.
