This is probably the best area in all of metro San Salvador. The thing to do is just walk around Plaza Futura, see all the people and restaurants. It also has the best view in San Salvador if you walk past the entrance to the Torre Futura and continue around the curved walkway, you can see all of the city below including the Metropolitan Cathedral in the city center,
the San Vicente Volcano and all the way to your left, looking north is the Guazapa Volcano and behind it the hills of Chalatenango. Across the street is the fantastic Crowne Plaza hotel, with great atmosphere and views. I had the buffet breakfast there every day, just $11.00 after 9am, best deal in town. And the Crowne Plaza is historically significant as it was formerly the Sheraton during the Civil War in the 80's, the site of the John Sullivan and Hammer / Pearlman / Viera tragedies and the 1989 firefight with the guerillas. No trace exists of those events but just walking around the beautiful hotel grounds is an incredible experience for anyone aware of what happened in El Salvador in the 80s.

Plaza Futura is a great collection of banks (with ATM), airline offices and restaurants. What makes this different from other places (e.g. Malls) is that you get more of that outdoors feeling than you might do in the malls. Dining is mostly informal although Paradiso does offer good formal dining too. Plaza Futura is also a cool hangout and occasionally has live music or other events on. Food ranges from steak and lobster to burgers, wings and Sushi. As well as the Japanese (sushi), there are also Mexican, Italian and Chinese restaurants to choose from as well as an Irish Bar which serves great food. In short, come here and then choose from a great selection of eateries or simply enjoy a beer and watch the world go by.

It is very nice place to have a dinner, good parking, safe and with different options, but that is. If you look for a meat restaurant there is the best in town. The others are average.

This is a fun place to go if you want a variety of restaurants (most are similar to what you would see in America) and have fun with friends. It's very safe, modern, and you feel really rich... like you're hanging out with a Lauren Conrad-type crowd.

I worked at the place for around 3 months. This is situated on hilly side of the city and from the top floors you can see almost the whole city and the volcano behind too.

A great place for foodies as you will find all varieties of restaurant at the 1st floor including open-air bars and the place only lights up more when the night falls in.

May 2021 most restaurants are permanently closed. It’s a nice place but now there is nothing much to do. Starbucks and wild wing, Boston ice cream are the few places opened
