Opened in 1999, Botafogo Praia Shopping occupies the address which once was an elegant Sears store. With 170 shops, a varied food court, and a Cinemark, the eight-story beachfront mall receives 40,000 visitors a day - on weekends, that number rises to about 70,000.
One of the mall's strongest points is the presence of Rio de Janeiro designers, especially in women's clothes and accessories. The food court includes branches of Rio favorites such as Koni.
