Upscale Las Vegas Shopping Malls

Upscale Las Vegas Shopping Malls

…on the Strip

Prowling the upscale Las Vegas shopping malls on the Strip can be equally as entertaining as dining, going to shows or playing the tables.

While the Las Vegas outlet malls will satisfy your bargain hunting instincts, the following four locations are, to our mind, the best spots in Las Vegas to find stores you may not have access to at home.

For exquisite products and merchandising panache the luxury shopping malls on the Strip are a must. Be warned–you will be tempted to buy but you may recoil in disbelief when you see the price tags!

However, if you happen to get lucky in the casino, there is no better place to find that exotic piece of jewelry, designer clothing or unique item for your home than in a shopping mall in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas shopping malls along the Strip are more than a collection of shops. Some offer creative entertainment to add to your enjoyment of the experience. You won’t want to miss the statues that come to life in the Forum at Caesars.

The Fashion Show mall presents live fashion shows and multimedia life style presentations on an elevated stage and runway. At the Venetian, wandering minstrels serenade shoppers several times daily, at Planet Hollywood, rain falls. Fashion Show

This has long been our favorite Las Vegas shopping mall. Not only is it Sin City’s largest shopping center, it’s one of the largest in the entire USA. Anchored by seven flagship department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard’s, Neiman Marcus, two Macy’s, the only Nordstrom in Nevada, and Bloomingdale’s Home. With over 250 shops and restaurants, this Las Vegas shopping mall has something for everyone.

When to go:
Sunday -Thursday: 10 am – 11 pm
Friday-Saturday: 10 am to midnight

The Forum Shops beside Caesar’s is a not-to-be-missed Las Vegas shopping mall. Entering it spirals you into another world, where you lose touch with where you are and if it is day or night. The ceilings become the sky, billowing with soft clouds. You will walk along wide avenues passing Italian fountains and stores with realistic European porticos flashing top designer names such as Versace, Hugo Boss, Kate Spade, DKNY, along with more affordable lines like Abercrombie & Fitch, and Gap. This Las Vegas shopping mall has over 170 shops and restaurants.

Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian

When to go:
Sunday – Thursday: 10 am to 11pm
Friday – Saturday: 10 am to midnight

For an Italian experience of a different sort, the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Hotel whisk you away to canals, cobblestones, and gondoliers crooning as they row you gently through tunnels and under bridges along the waterways. This Las Vegas shopping mall has over 80 elite shops and restaurants including the exclusive Canyon Ranch Living Essentials boutique that offers Canyon Ranch logo casual wear. The Venetian is one three places where you can be pampered in a Canyon Ranch Spa. The only other locations where you can enjoy such luxurious treatments are on the Queen Mary 2 or at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida.

Desert Passage at Planet Hollywood
3667 Las Vegas Blvd. S. (705) 785.5555
www.desertpassage.com

When to go:
Sunday – Thursday: 10 am to 11 pm
Friday – Saturday: 10 am to midnight.

You’ll be entertained but you just might get wet during an indoor rainstorm (they occur hourly) as you shop the more than 140 stores in the Desert Passage. This is a Las Vegas shopping mall that evokes memories of Zanzibar with its Moorish architecture and bustling open bazaar. There is a mix of high-end and ‘regular folks’ shops and shoppers say they find it less crowded and less pricey than The Forum.
