    We incorporated exercise to see this place, sprint walking from our hotel (Tango de Mayo) which is by Congreso Nacional. I'm not into books or reading per se, but this place is amazing! It is worth it for the view, and pics.

    This place is #1 on the TA list, which surprises me in some regards (because there are so many fabulous places to see in BA), but at the same time this place is awesome.

    On Sundays they block off Defensa street and it is lined with merchants and peddlers. If you walk up one side and back the other, you will have expended about all the energy you want to expend. There are remarkable craft people here!

    Although weekends are the busiest, some vendors only open their stalls for weekend shoppers. All types of foods and goods are sold, including some antiquities, the majority of which I consider overpriced. The foods served are generally very good. There are always some interesting items to consider buying.

    Great place to mingle with and watch the locals. Don't be put off by the 30 to 40 minute drive from the historic center or Palermo neighborhoods. It's easy to get an uber or a cab. Wonderful beef sandwiches. Eat while listening to folk music and watching folk dancing in the street. A number of booths selling food (we bought bread, cheese and sausages), clothing, (my wife bought a dress) arts and crafts and knives (I bought one with an armadillo handle[a work of art. Prices were very reasonable. Some of those attending were wearing gaucho attire. Didn't see many tourists.

    The mall, with three levels of shops, offers a wide range of mostly mid-market-plus goods. I particularly buy goods at a store specializing in Argentinian leather goods, located on the second floor.

    This mall is upscale and generally expensive. Some of the stores are those found in any upscale mall but others carried Argentine products that were gorgeous. It is well air conditioned and safe with many security men around. The food court has a lot of options and most people there were locals. Was very surprised by the grocery store on the Pousada end of the mall. It carried a huge variety of products.

    This Argentine tango show is held inside the Borges Cultural Center (BCC) located inside the beautiful Galerias Pacifico shopping center in Buenos Aires. Theater type seats are basic, cushioned, and comfortable.

    Different performances of tango are scheduled for different days during the week. Three of us went to see Pasion de Tango show on a Tuesday evening. One of the few early tango shows in Buenos Aires central area so you can plan other activities such as wining and dining at other places.

    One purchases open-seating tickets at least one-hour before the show at their manned kiosk inside the BCC. Cost in Feb 2020 was only $900 Argentine Pesos. Cash only, no credit cards. Theatre is air-conditioned and kept at a comfortable temperature. Lighting is good. Sound is good.

    No photography or video recording of any kind is allowed during the performance. They sell DVDs after the show however, we never found them.

    The performance included a small live band which played quite well. The dancers performed historic Argentine tangos covering several periods and costume changes. A solo male singer serenaded the audience between dances. The entire show started early at 8 pm and ended at just over an hour. This allows finding dinner later at a dedicated restaurant.

    In summary, a great introduction to historic Argentine tangos with no frills (no drinks or food service to gouge patrons).

    Normally when I see the words 'cultural centre' I imagine an empty old building serving as a make-work project and people paid to sit around and do nothing. But here, it's much different.
    Young people dancing- in different styles from room to room. Workshops, DJs, Art galleries and exhibitions small and large, wild and wonderful. Whoever curates this place really puts together fantastic presentations. There's even a hands-on science gallery for younger kids. (Touching the displays is mandatory!)
    I admit it felt a bit strange as an outsider wandering through, but what is art for if not to be seen? But wander you must! There are many galleries within- some along the inside hallway, others along the outer corridor.
    There is a craft market outside with food vendors on Saturdays, and a cafe at least inside. In addition they'll have concerts and films, check their web site if you want the current program.
    Overall, it was the joy and exhuberance of everthing going on here that made my visit worthwhile.

    A modern mall located opposite to Recoleta Cemetery, we were there to grab something to eat, there were many restaurants and cafes that suit every taste.
    There were plenty of shops and brands and a cinema. If you love shopping then this is the place for you.

    I tried this mall as it was one of, if not the largest in Buenos Aires. The shopping experience was quite linear. The same kind of shops you would expect from a mid-priced mall. The food court was quite impressive with several restaurants, not just within the food court but also on all other levels. I would however steer clear of the American Diner on the ground floor. I saw, what looked like the supervisor (wearing black) take a spoon out of what looked like a milkshake container, wiped it with her fingers and licked it. She must have liked it as she went back in with the spoon so that she could lick it again. Disgusting. I didn’t order the milkshake!

    Visited Uru while in Buenos Aires last week and found the store to be very impressive. Various types of leather goods for men amd women as well as outdoorsman. If there's something you like but it's not the right fit, they cN have it custom made fir you by the next day or two and have it dropped off at your hotel.

    Really like the soft gun case made from capybara but when I went back to purchase it they were sold out.

    Worth the visit

    The main appeal of the Galería Güemes is the architecture. There are some shops, but they were not of great interest to me. It was built in 1913 in the art nouveau style and designed by Italian architect Francisco Gianotti. The ornate details of the glass ceiling domes are a glimpse back into history.

    The mall is three levels with a grocery store on the lower level. Very clean. Food court is on the third floor. There you will find a nice size arcade with games for all kids and adults.
