Fodor's Review

The soaring art deco architecture of what was once the city's central market is as much a reason to come here as the 250 shops spread over its three levels. Although Abasto has many top local chains, it isn’t as exclusive as other malls, so relative bargains await at retailers like Ver, Yagmour, and Markova. Women can dress up at Paula Cahen d'Anvers, Akiabara, and Rapsodia; while men can hit trendy shops such as Bensimon, Prototype, and Old Bridge, or go for the estanciero look with smart La Martina polo wear. When you need a break, there’s a top-floor food court beneath the glass panes and steel supports of the building's original roof. The mall is also home to Museo de los Niños (a hands-on children's museum) and a 12-screen cinema; you can pick up tickets for entertainment elsewhere in town at the Ticketek booth near the food court, too.
