El Retiro Shopping Center
Home to a veritable who’s who of luxury brands, including Carolina Herrera, Jimmy Choo, and Calvin Klein, the El Retiro Shopping Center is a one-stop shop for those looking to splash some cash in the Colombian capital.
In addition to the luxe brands, there are plenty of high-end and local high street offerings as well, so whether you’re in the market for a Breitling watch or some new Diesel jeans, your needs will be more than met here. When the need for refuelling arises, meanwhile, those in the know head to the ‘gourmet’ area. This is no paltry food court, offering sad snacks and drinks. Here, shoppers can stop for a drink at the sleek Buho Bar, explore the gastro offerings at the food counter of La Plaza de Andrés or settle in for some fine Mexican fare at El Techo. But if one of El Techo’s signature margaritas doesn’t do the trick for your waning shopping mojo, there’s always the possibility of a restorative scoop of gelato from the Cremeria Italiana stand or a few chocolates from Cascabel.
