Most of us go to the mall to grab the outfit we wish, then leave. But the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is removed from simple — you’ll want to stick around so much longer.
Talking statues. An exotic fish aquarium. World-renowned restaurants. Oh, and the selection of high-end retail stores isn’t too shabby, either. With stores from famous designers like Salvatore Ferragamo, Gianni Versace, Carolina Herrera and Louis Vuitton, you will not have a problem with splurging. The Forum Shops also offers a nice blend of popular favorites. These include Guess, Gap, Victoria’s Secret, Nike and the bargains at H&M.
The three-story H&M will blow your mind. With its energetic music, bright colors and stylishly-dressed mannequins suspended from the ceiling, H&M feels like a party and shopping spree rolled into one. Since it carries a large selection of men’s and women’s apparel, no one will stand around bored while their significant other tries on clothes. For those who shop wisely, you may probably put together an outfit with accessories for less than $100. Which means more cash to splurge in your trip.
The Forum Shops’ number of restaurants is bound to please the pickiest palate. These include Il Mulino New York, Spago, Sushi Roku, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab and The Palm, among others.
Should you plan on walking through all the mall, be certain that to check out the 175,000-square-foot, three-level area featuring a spiral escalator — one among only two within the United States. Make your home fancy with a spree at Baccarat crystal.
Ladies can snag all their makeup essentials at Sephora. In addition to lip glosses, eye shadows and more mascara wands than you may imagine, Sephora also offers a wall’s worth of designer fragrances for both men and women. For more beauty needs, Forum Shops also offers an enormous MAC cosmetics store and NARS Cosmetics.
Nearby, art lovers can stroll through the Peter Lik gallery whose claim to fame is his bright, digitally-enhanced photographs.
