Forum Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
If you want the luxury brands, the Forum Shops at the Caesars Palace Casino is the place to go. Here you will find a big selection of restaurants and shops. Cool shops are for instance Juicy Couture, FAO Scwarz, DKNY, Bvlgari, Burberry, Christian Dior, Fendi, Gianni Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli and Valentino. There are stores for the regular customer too, such as AX Exchange, Lacoste and Banana Republic.
Check out the fancy twisting escalators. There is also a "live" show by the huge fountain with fire effects.. I liked the fish tank under the fountain, it was great. Much better than the fish tank at the reception in Mirage.
What to buy: Branded bags and clothing.

Built as an extension wing of the main casino at Caesars Palace, this was the first destination mall on The Strip, the mall now fronts on The Strip.This unique indoor shopping environment boasts a unique atmosphere that simulates ancient Roman streets including fountains, statues and facades. It features a ceiling painted as the sky that goes through a 24 hour day every hour. Realistic appearing stone statues in the fountains of the mall, come to life and perform several times throughout the day. Even the time of day or night is signified under enclosed, temperature-controlled skies that change throughout the day from the rose and mauve of dawn, to high noon and the fading gold of afternoon, followed by the golds and grays of twilight and the night's twinkling stars. Along the way, sculptures come to life at the Festival Fountain Plaza and the Fountain of the Gods
The most recent expansion added 175,000 square feet and additional levels that extend the mall out to Las Vegas Boulevard, where a grand pedestrian plaza creates a signature entrance for The Forum Shops at Caesars.
What to buy: The cheap stuff at the Forum Shops? some like The Cheesecake Factory, heaping portions and quality food. If you are looking for a little more upscale try Spago where for the price you really get more than you pay for. The middle ground when it comes to eating cheap at the Forum Shops is Bertollini’s, a ton of bread, big portions of Pasta and some good pizza. Share some meals and you are saving money. Cheap shopping at the Forum Shops? It doesn’t exist; there are some hidden away bargain racks at Banana Republic and the Gap. Most of the toys are way too expensive at FAO and the specialty shops find it hard to offer any real bargains.
This titan of the shopping world offers some of the most expensive retail real estate in the world, which explains the pedigree of its tenants: Versace, Gucci, Bernini, Abercrombie & Fitch, Louis Vuitton, Montblanc, Valentino and Galerie Lassen and a lot more. The High-end restaurants abound from Caviarteria to Wolfgang Puck's Spago. All this shopping excitement is costly; however, a trip to the Forum Shops is a Las Vegas must, if only to window-shop.
What to pay: MAX out you Credit Card!
I don't know when the Forum Shops expanded but I'm glad they did. There is a huge array of stores here from The Gap to Louis Vitton. Other's include: Abercrombie and Fitch, Estee Lauder, Anthropologie, FAO Schwartz, Rolex, and Hermes.
What to buy: I love the COACH store!
I have to admit, I liked the Caesar's shops better before they remdoled. Still it's one of the best places to window shop. For some reason, I feel brave enough to go in & try on expensive jewelry, something I don't do at home. No one knows me here.
What to buy: I like their Victoria's Secret, it's huge, and the sales girls were very friendly.
What to pay: They have some very expensive stores.
If you looking for that special gift for your self then this is the best place to look, it has an open feeling of you being outside however you are inside with air con and there is entertainment as your walking around. It is mainly clothes and handbag shops but very interesting to walk around. The ceiling is painted with cloud effects and done in great detail.
Over 100 specialty shops such as Escada, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Versace, Armani, DKNY, FAO Schwarz, Disney Store, Louis Vuitton, Niketown, and Victoria Secret. Restaurants include Spago, Chinois, Palm, and Cheesecake Cafe. In addition to shopping and dining, there is a variety of entertainment. There is a beautifully done ‘city square’ which has the feeling of being outdoors because of the layout of bistros and painted sky overhead. I enjoyed the 50,000 gallon tropical fish aquarium where you can watch divers enter the tank and feed the fish by hand. There is also the Fall of Atlantis and fountain shows on the hour every hour, where anamatronic figures portray the legendary fall of Atlantis. Open 10 am to 11 pm.

The Forum Shops at Caesars boasts a unique atmosphere that simulates ancient Roman streets and has no visual rival in the world. More than 160 stores create a retail attraction similar to the Via Condotti, Rodeo Drive or Madison Avenue.
What to buy: It does matter what you buy or if you buy anything at all. In the summertime when it is an inferno outside you can walk around in the mall. the Forum shops cover a big location. You might not see it all on your first walk around the mall. I really like coming here after i have eatten in one of the buffets and i need to walk off my food.
This place is like a mall. It's a group of stores under one roof and this mall is connected to Caesars Palace. The place is pretty expensive and if you have a lot of money to burn, you found the right place. You will find anything such as DKNY, Armani Exchange, Lucky Brand Jeans, D & G, Diesel, A & F, Versace, BOSS, Gucci, Burberry, Coach, Fendi, and many many other. (FYI: This is actually the place where Rush Hour 2 movie was shot. The scene where Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan walk in to buy suits before they head out to the newly opened casino.)
What to pay: A whole lot!!!
To call the Forum Shops at Caesar’s a “Shopping Mall” is a bit of an understatement – indeed the same could also be said of Desert Passage at Aladdin and the Canal Shoppes at the Venetian.
As well as approximately 150 shops and restaurants there are also street entertainers, fountains and the “Lost City of Atlantis” animatronics presentation, making it as much an attraction as a mall.
As for the shops well for fashion devotees there is Gucci, Versace, Armani and Christian Dior (as well as Banana Republic and Gap for the slightly less well-heeled shopper) for children and the child within us there is FAO Schwartz. For foodies, stop at the Cheesecake Factory or Planet Hollywood. And for those who simply like to window-shop and people-watch, well, the Forum is a great place to do both!
Just like the Forum in Caesar’s Rome? Market-place, public–place, place of discussion, maybe, but with less togas!
What to buy: Clothes, shoes, more clothes!
Shopping like you have never seen before. They have turned this shopping area into a Roman street scene. It's filled with marble columns, fountains and animated statues that perform every 30 minutes. The ceiling (sky) turns from day to night as you wander the streets. 110 designer stores, restaurants and bars. Be sure and check out the 50,000 gallon aquarium located in the Roman Great Hall.
What to buy: A variety of stores, tending to be on the high end.
What to pay: Not too many bargains, but definitely come for a look.
The Forum Shops has the best selection of shops in Vegas. Here you'll find everything from famous designers such as Ann Taylor, Hugo Boss and Bernini to popular favorites Diesel, Guess and Banana Republic.
What sets the Forum Shops apart, however, is its specialty shops. Lalique offers gorgeous crystal bowls, vases and platters. Although expensive, the pieces are stunning. The rhinestone-studded shoes at Stuart Weitzman, with handbags to match, are the perfect complement to the most elegant evening wear. Estee Lauder's gold compacts, porcelain boxes and trinkets are relatively inexpensive and make nice gift items. And be sure to check out Brighton Collectibles and the newly-expanded Louis Vuitton.
With more than 100 stores, restaurants and attractions, there's plenty to keep you busy for an afternoon.
What to pay: Because of the designer clothing and specialty items, you can expect to pay more than normal.
The Forum Shops are great. There's a lot to see and do... and it's expanding. However, it's a bit pricey to buy things.
Virgin Megastore, Niketown and Cheesecake Factory are all situated in a far corner of the Shops.
What to buy: There's really nothing here you couldn't get at any other mall (well, at least in a LA mall). But, when you're in Vegas, cost doesn't seem to matter as much... thus you're more likely to buy those expensive jeans at Banana Republic here than you would at home.
What to pay: Slightly more than your typical mall outing.
This is a huge mall attached to Caesar's Palace and one of my favorite places to shop in Vegas. There is a good mix of upscale designer shops and restaurants with less pricey ones, making the shopping much more accessible for the average person than in most Vegas malls. The Forum also features a beautiful tropical fish tank and a rather odd (we thought) show employing mechanized puppets to act out a battle among the Greek Gods.
What to buy: Here you can actually buy anything you want from Prada luggage to souvenir keychains.
Again, this is a very pricey collection of shops and, unless you frequently patronize Prada and Gucci, you'll be browsing and not buying here. But its fun to walk around and view the architecture and displays. Make sure to check out the talking statues by the fountain. Another cute show to see once.
What to pay: A great deal
The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace is still the best shopping experience on the Strip. An enclosed, airconditioned shopping mall, the Forum Shops are decorated in the vaguely Roman style of Caesar's Palace, with large fountains and statues everywhere.
The best thing about the Forum Shops is just the incredible variety of shopping to be had here. The stores include:
The Disney Store
Field of Dreams Sports Memorabilia
... and there are so many more!
You can also find plenty of dining in the Forum Shops. From the elegant Spago to the casual Cheesecake Factory, there are tons of options.
You'll also find performers in this area. Usually mimes or clown-types.
The Forum Shops are open Sunday-Thursday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight.
What to pay: The prices range by store.
