Fodor's Review

Narrow streets shaded by leafy tropical trees make the city's financial district a pleasant area to explore, though the trees are being cut to make room for more skyscrapers. Together with El Cangrejo, which lies across the Vía España from it, the Area Bancária holds a critical mass of hotels and restaurants. You'll find two of the city's highest concentration of bars and restaurants in El Cangrejo and the area around Calle Uruguay (Calle 48), between Calle 50 (Nicanor de Obarrio) and Avenida Balboa.
