Forum Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
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.
Even if you don't want to shop, but come in here and enjoy the beautiful architecture. I cannot say enough how truely how beautiful it is in here. I like to just walk around and take it all in. I never get tired coming into this part of strip.
What to buy: Yves Chantre P-A-R-I-S perfume and lotions.
Shop or window-shop at the Forum Shops. While waiting for the free show of the Fall of the Atlantis at the Fountain inside the Caesar's Palace, I window-shopped at the Forum. The Forum Shops are exquisite-most of the signature items can be found at the forum-from purses, jewelries, purses, shoes, watches to clothers. If you were gambling in Las Vegas and won lots of money, then go to the Forum to shop! If you didn't have money, you can still go and appreciate the architecture and the fresco at Caesar's Palace!
What to buy: Any signature items you can think of.
What to pay: hundreds to thousands of dollars!
This is just another extension of the Appian Way Shops. People may not realize there is access to the rest of the huge forums shops. I know of many people who enter from the strip (Vegas Blvd) not realizing there is a whole other section of the mall loaded with restaurants, cafes, high end stores, free shows and a night clubs. It has lots of wonderful areas to just sit and relax. It is always cool and inviting in here and a great place to escape the heat and at night to escape the people.
Probably THE most posh place to shop in Vegas are the FORUM SHOPS AT CAESARS'. It is just unbelievable - with marble floors, fountains and Roman statues. An ancient Roman street village is simulated here - see the sky change from day to night. Here you will find 160 high-fashion retailers, including Guess, Escada, Versace, Armani and many restaurants.
Sunday to Thursday 10:00 a.m to 11:00 p.m.
Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to midnight
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.

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
So, I really didn't buy anything at the Forum Shops, nor could I really afford to but it's still worth seeing. It's beautiful and assuredly breathtaking the first time you're there. The fountains are picturesque and the spiral elevators are worthy of a few rides. :)
What to buy: All designer shops available.
What to pay: Top dollar, unless you're able to windowshop and then FREE! :)
The Forum Shops is an indoor mall that looks slightly like an outdoor mall but way more classier. Stores include Coach (my favorite) Nike. Victoria's Secret, La Perla and many more. The center of the mall has an impressive fountain. There are also restaurants for meals or for a light snack.
What to buy: I usually buy t-shirts/sweatshirts with "Caesar's Palace imprinted on them.
What to pay: Some of the shops inside can be pretty pricey, but before you go, win a little extra cash in the casino!
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!
I am just going to mention the entire shopping center inside Caesar's Palace altogether, because there are a lot of shops, around 205!!! The Forum Shops (as they are called) is definitely the best shops in all of Vegas. I am not actually talking about buying something from these shops, but just browsing and taking in the scenery. The entire ceiling is covered with painted clouds and a blue sky, with lots of lights. Both the "Fall of Atlantis" & the "Festival Fountain" shows are inside the chain of shops. See my "Things to do in Vegas" page regarding all the details about these shows. Here is a list of some "top" stores at the Forum Shops:
~ Cheesecake Factory
~ Planet Hollywood
~ Victoria's Secret
~ The Disney Store
~ Ann Taylor
~ Gianni Versace
~ A/X Armani Exchange
~ The Polo Store / Ralph Lauren
~ Bath & Body Works
~ Emporio Armani
~ Estee Lauder
~ Banana Republic
There is a great layout of the Forum Shops at the following web site:
The hours the Forum Shops are open are as follows:
Sun. - Thurs. (10am - 11pm)
Fri. - Sat. (10am - 12am)
What to buy: Food and candy will probably be the cheapest items to buy. Or if you just happen to have several thousand dollars in your pocket, you just might want to buy a new Rolexes Watch.
This is one of the best shopping malls there is. Vegas has a lot to offer with it's gambling casinos, shows, night clubs and restaurants. And, you can go shopping any other time at any other place. But, this is an experience. So, if you have a spare hour or two, try to check it out. You may not want to spend money here but it's worth seeing. Hopefully, during your visit you will get a chance to see the animated statues, Bacchus chat with other gods and goddesses. We happen to have dinner at Trevi Italian which is located in the Forum Shops. They accomodated us as a group of 20 people which can be difficult with a reasonable cost.
If you go to Vegas, then you must visit the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Doesnt matter if you dont have Gucci money, or Dior tastes, its just a whole new experience of how the other half live.
The Forum is a huge covered walkway designed like the ancient streets of Rome, with huge statues and even a replica Trevi Fountain. Blue sky and clouds form overhead and theres a distinct feel of class strolling thru these streets.
Whether its Chanel or Fendi, Dior or Givenchy plus a host of many more famous stores of haute couture, or just a quick whizz round Victoria Secrets to pick up some very good bargains in underwear and beauty products, this place has to be seen. Check out the amazing curved escalators and fashion show beneath them.
Theres some great restaurants scattered throughout and as a special treat a robotic Neptune "show" which is really very good...and free of charge.
What to buy: If you can afford it...buy it!! The shops are´nt just fashionwear, there are some pretty amazing art galleries, electrical goods, china and glasswear and jewelers.
