Many people take full advantage of miles upon miles of shopping opportunities available in Las Vegas, which include everything from low-priced bargains at outlet malls to one-of-a-kind high-end merchandise at exclusive boutique shops. Whatever the style, there’s a store for you.
If you love the finer things in life, though, there are a few select places in Las Vegas where you should be shopping. It’s in these high-end retailers that you’ll walk away with fine jewelry, the latest fashions off the runway and accessories that will set you apart from other jet setters.
You may be walking through The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, but you might as well be strolling along Fifth Avenue in New York City. With more than 160 shops and boutique retailers, The Forum Shops offer hours of top-of-the-line shopping bliss. Considered one of the most popular shopping destinations in the world, this shopping space includes brands such as Christian Dior, Juicy Couture, Coach, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vutton and Gucci. Even if you don’t buy, shopping at The Forum Shops is an experience anyway because of the ornate decor, high ceilings and architecture. Regular hours at The Forum Shops are Sunday through Thursday 10:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m.-midnight. Hours may change due to holidays or special events.
The Shoppes at The Palazzo include approximately 60 luxury brands including Coach, Fendi and Jimmy Choo. One of the highlights of this retail space is Bauman Rare Books, which is worth a look even if you don’t plan to buy. Anchored by Barney’s New York, The Shoppes at The Palazzo are often overlooked by those stopping by the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian. The hallways of this shopping area are often quiet, so take your time to enjoy a laid back shopping trip through this corner of Las Vegas. Regular hours at The Shoppes at The Palazzo are Sunday through Thursday 10:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m.-midnight.
Though the Bellagio is usually known for its dancing fountains, shoppers will delight in the luxury shops at Bellagio as well. Name brand fashion and accessories can be found at approximately a dozen shops including Giorgio Armani, Chanel and Prada, but other unique retailers include art galleries and jewelry shops. At Bellagio at Home, shoppers can take their Bellagio experience home with them with a complete collection of signature bath accessories and bedroom furnishings. Regular hours for the shops at Bellagio vary.
The shops at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas aren’t housed in your typical shopping mall fashion, which is partially what makes enjoying them so nice. There’s no need to bump elbows with tons of other people as you step into these high-end retailers, each of which has plenty of personnel on hand to offer a personal shopping experience. In Wynn, shoppers will find the likes of Alexander McQueen, Manolo Blahnik and Cartier, while the shops in Encore include Chanel and Hermes. Most shops at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas are open Sunday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m.-midnight.
