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.
The Forum Shops has the best selection of high-end, designer shops in Vegas. Designed to look like a Roman street, the ceilings darken and lighten to simulate day and night. Several "piazzas" highlight fountains and beautiful decor.
When entering the shops from the parking garage, you'll have to walk through a small portion of the casino. If you're coming from the Strip, head through the pedestrian plaza, which creates an impressive entrance into the Forum Shops' expansion. Inside the doors, visitors are greeted by a large reflecting pool, huge Roman statues and a beautiful glass domed ceiling.
The 175,000-square-foot, three-level addition includes an array of upscale shops and several new restaurants, as well as a spiral escalator -- one of only two in the United States.
What to buy When you hit your jackpot at Caesar's, you can spend it here at Harry Winston (diamonds), Max Brenner (gourmet chocolate), Baccarat (crystal), Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Louis Vuitton (designer fashion), Stuart Weitzman (shoes), Peter Lik Gallery (art) and many wonderful restaurants!
What to pay These are high end stores, and command a high end price. However, the window shopping is free, and really - the mall itself is the attraction. Get yourself a gelato (about $5), walk around and wait for the statues to come to life! (see my other tips)
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.
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 caeser`s Palace shopping arcade is one of the most luxurious places I have been to.
the shopping arcade screams of ancient Rome.There's even a faux blue sky overhead that changes as the day progresses.Also the statues change and move at some time of the day!
What to buy If you can afford it buy everything ;-)

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!
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.
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!!!

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.
