If there is one thing that is easy to do in Vegas, it’s spend your money, and nearly every Hotel on the Strip has a hallway somewhere close to the casino floor dedicated to various shops – everything from daily essentials to high-end luxury items. We’ll go over a few of the well-known shops in these popular tourist areas.
One of the newest and most luxurious shopping centers on the Strip, Crystals is located in CityCenter and carries all types of high-end merchandise.
Some shops exclusive to CityCenter within Vegas include Tom Ford, Kiton, Porsche Design, Miu Miu, Robert Coin, Paul Smith, and Assouline. Crystals is a mall with a park feel and design, and even if you are not shopping for anything in particular, Crystals is worth a visit for the entertainment and atmosphere.
This is a row of fashion and luxury shops located in the walkway between Encore and Wynn. You’ll find a total of 11 boutiques including In Step, Rock & Roll Republic, Chanel, and Hermes.
On the corner of Spring Mountain and Las Vegas Blvd, across from TI and Wynn Fashion Show is easily spotted via the giant UFO-esc pavilion overhead. Over 30 million visit Fashion Show each year and within are over 2 million square feet of shopping. One of the most unique features is an 80 ft. retractable runway so fashion shows may be held right there in the mall.
Set up like a small Venetian village, Forum Shops are beautiful with a sky canopy that gives and outdoor feel to the experience. At the center is the Atlantis Fountain show with talking statues. Forum Shops are a great place to visit or shop, with a number of very popular retailers including Ann Taylor, Hugo Boss, Banana Republic, Guess, Estee Lauder’s, and much more. And if you get hungry stop by Cheesecake Factory.
Another Venetian village with a sky-blue canopy, what sets Grand Canal Shoppes apart from Forum Shops is the canal that runs straight through where romancing couples can take a gondola ride. Some of the shops that you will find are Bebe, Peter Lik gallery, Sephora, and all types of baubles, masks, and other odds and ends can be found at the various shops around St. Mark’s Square.
Hey bra! If you’re into Hawaiian than Hawaiian Marketplace is a dream come true. It is modeled after the Marketplace in Honolulu with bright colors and tropical plants, located in front of Polo Towers. There are a lot of food choices naturally, mostly Asian Island in taste from China Star Buffet to Kapit Bahay. You’ll find a variety of vendors and stand-alone carts throughout the area selling themed jewelry, art, temporary tattoos, and much more.
If you want low prices on the on Las Vegas Blvd, you have to go way south. Not technically the Strip, but a short drive South on the blvd you’ll find Las Vegas Outlet Center featuring shops with name brands at outlet prices including Charlotte Russe, Pac Sun Aeropastale, Hurley, and much more. Within take the kids on the indoor carousel.
Inside the Paris Hotel, yet another blue-sky canopy – it is the trend for indoor Vegas Strip shopping, these shops have an old Paris theme though with quaint buildings and cobbled streets. Not as large as some of the Strip shopping centers, but you will find many unique boutiques selling all kinds of interesting bric-a-brac like Les Elements and Les Enfants.
Inside Mandalay by, look for great outlets like DuO, LUSH, Maude, Max & Co., Art of Shaving, and much more in a cozy upscale environment.
We’re not sure if it is technically a full mile, but there are 170 stores and 15 restaurants within Planet Hollywood. If you want it you can find it here from H&M ultra trendy fashion, Urban Outfitter, Wild Pair, and about 167 others. Miracle Mile is always busy and has a bright futuristic theme.
You’ll first see the M&M motif outside on the Strip next to MGM. The biggest draws within the Showcase Mall include M&M’s World, GameWorks which is a multimillion dollar arcade, World of Coca-Cola, and Ethel M. This is the perfect mall for children if you are planning to spend a day shopping with the family.
Slated to open Dec 15, the Shops at Cosmopolitan will be inside the Cosmopolitan across from Planet Hollywood. They will have a trendy theme with shops carrying youthful brands like AllSaints British apparel, CRSVR (pronounced crossover) with various sneakers, DNA2050, Droog, and more.
Inside the Palazzo naturally, which is next to the Venetian. The Shoppes at The Palazzo are a beautiful high-end assortment of unique boutiques, the center of which is the 85,000 sq ft Barneys regularly visited by celebrities and also popular in NY. Some of the shops include Ice Jewelry, Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, and COACH.
Also located south of the Strip, but on Las Vegas Blvd, the them is similar to that of the indoor Venetian mall, but actually outdoors with quaint, slightly larger architecture with a colonial feel, no canal, and instead of a sky canopy, the actual sky. Town Square is huge, full of popular mostly local nightclubs and bars, a picnic and park area, and 18-screen theatre. Some of the shops one will find include Abercrombie and Fitch, Aeropostale, Hollister, Metropark, Aldo, Banana Republic, Sephora, MAC, and many other trendy outlets.
This is where you want to be for high-end luxury shopping. True to Bellagio’s theme, here you will find only the most luxurious shops and items for sale. Some of the shops include Tiffany & Co, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, and Prada.
Inside the Wynn, here you will find many exclusive-to-Vegas shops. Alexander McQueen, Dior, Cartier, La Flirts, and Manolo Blahniks Wynn Esplanade features a beautiful layout with skylights and high ceilings given the feel one is walking through a palace lined with shops.
If you want an actual supermarket on the Strip, you are out of luck. Most of the casinos have at least one shop though which will sell a few essentials, plus drinks and snacks and other items, however for a lot more than you would pay just a few blocks away. There is one Walgreen’s on the Strip across from CityCenter. Again, you will pay prices a quite a bit higher than you may be accustomed to.
