Vegas calls itself the “Entertainment Capital of the World”, so as you can imagine, between the casinos, the shows, the restaurants, the bars and the nightclubs, there’s plenty to ensure you’re never bored for even a minute while you’re there.
However, sometimes we all just feel like hitting the stores for a spot of good old-fashioned shopping – and Vegas has outlets in abundance. So, to help you find all the top places to splash your cash, here’s our guide to the best malls on the Vegas Strip.
Shopping Mall on Las Vegas Strip
Most of the best malls in Vegas are found on The Strip or very close by, and almost all of them are attached to the big resorts and casinos. Here are our suggestions for the ones to track down and check out while you’re there.

The Forum Shops at Caesars
Boasting around 160 shops, restaurants and bars, The Forum at Caesars Palace is a shopaholic’s dream.
The mall houses a range of shops from all your favorite upmarket brands, including Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace, Jimmy Choo and many more. However, you’ll also find some more affordable stores like the huge H&M if you’ve already gambled away all your money.
When you need a break and a bite to eat, you’ll be spoiled for choice – and don’t forget to take in the Atlantis Aquarium while you’re there too.
Of course, this being Caesars Palace, there’s no shortage of appropriate décor – the Roman theme of this mall, complete with statues and general opulence of the place, makes it worth visiting even if you don’t buy anything.
If any mall in town encapsulates what Vegas is all about, this is the one, making it an unmissable stop on any Vegas itinerary.
- Opening times: Sun-Thu – 10am-9pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-10pm
The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort and The Palazzo
Another of Vegas’ most extravagant shopping experiences is to be had at the Grand Canal Shoppes between The Venetian Resort and The Palazzo.
Inspired by a Venetian street scene, this stunning mall incorporates a network of canals winding their way between the stores – and you can even take a guided tour of the canals in a gondola.
In terms of the shops themselves, this mall has everything you could ask for, with many of the world’s most famous luxury brands represented. In total, the directory currently lists over 200 stores, boutiques, restaurants, cafés and bars operating on the premises.
While you’re there, make sure you also head to the Atrium to check out the impressive waterfall and garden.
- Opening times: Daily – 10am-9pm
For all your high-end shopping needs, Wynn Plaza has everything you want. This is not the kind of place to shop if you’re on a budget, but if you want to splash the cash on luxury brands, this mall will be calling your name.
Whether you are looking for clothing, watches, perfume or other accessories from the most exclusive stores, Wynn Plaza has it all.
Of course, the mall itself is worthy of the kind of store you’ll find there, and shopping in such beautiful surroundings makes the experience all the more pleasurable. In fact, it’s even worth visiting just to see the mall, even if you can’t afford to buy anything.
And if all that isn’t quite enough, you’ll also find Wynn Esplanade and Encore Esplanade on the same site, giving you an even greater choice of stores to visit.
- Opening times: Sun-Thu – 10am-11pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-12am
The Shoppes at Mandalay Place
Located between Mandalay Bay and Luxor and connecting both, this mall of around 40 stores is more manageable than some of the biggest megamalls in Vegas, but it’s well worth checking out, nonetheless.
This place is based on more creative boutique shops than top-end luxury stores, so it’s a great place to head for souvenirs as well as some quirkier items to take home when you leave.
For example, Flip Flop Shops sells a huge selection of flip flops and sandals while the Guinness Store houses the largest range of Guinness merchandise in one place outside of Ireland. The Lick candy store also specializes in sweets that change the color of your tongue.
The range of restaurants won’t disappoint either, allowing you to grab a bite in more unpretentious surroundings, which is great if you don’t want anything too fancy.
For example, there’s a Fat Tuesday, the RI’ RA’ Irish Pub and Hussong’s Cantina, so this is not somewhere you’ll be going hungry. Also, don’t miss the Minus5 Ice Bar, a unique Vegas experience where the bar is kept at a constant -5°C to make sure your cocktails stay cold!
- Opening times: Daily – 10am-11pm
The Shops at Crystals
Another place for fans of exclusive brands and high-end fashion, The Shops at Crystals is a small but exciting mall located in the Aria Resort in the CityCenter development.
The mall currently houses almost 50 stores selling luxury goods, with brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Bulgari, Rolex and more all represented.
In line with the rest of Aria, this mall has received LEED+ Gold Core & Shell certification, making it the largest retail district to have done so. This makes it perhaps the greenest mall in Las Vegas as well as one of the most popular.
- Opening times: Sun-Thu – 11am-9pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-10pm
Vegas has no shortage of high-end malls, but Via Bellagio is as opulent, luxurious and exclusive as they come.
Filled with outlets from brands like Chanel, Dior and Prada, this is the place to come for a splurge if you’ve just had a big win in one of the casinos.
The dining options are similarly upmarket, and you can choose between restaurants such as PRIME steakhouse, Yellowtail Japanese and several other similarly classy establishments.
While you’re there, don’t miss the renowned Fountains of Bellagio, a sound and light show at Bellagio hotel that is one of Vegas’ must-see attractions.
- Opening times: Daily – 10am-10pm
The Showcase Mall (Jouvence Eternelle)
One of Vegas’ iconic malls is best known for the façade featuring a giant Coca-Cola bottle and similarly huge bag of M&Ms.
Inside, you’ll find a Coca-Cola gift shop called World of Coca-Cola as well as M&Ms World, which sells souvenirs and gifts based on these ever-popular chocolate treats. There’s a food court inside, and the mall also houses a three-storey Hard Rock Café.
Most of the stores here are more affordable outlets rather than the high-end shops found in many of Vegas’ exclusive malls, so if you want to do a bit of shopping but don’t want to break the bank, this mall is highly recommended.
- Opening times: Daily – 9am-6pm
Miracle Mile Shops
Miracle Mile Shops is the mall attached to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and with around 200 stores, restaurants, bars and cafés, this indoor shopping mecca is one of the largest in Vegas.
In fact, the name undersells the mall slightly since the true length of this shopping complex is no less than a whopping 1.2 miles!
Inside, you’ll find all your favorite high street stores like H&M, Desigual, GUESS and Lush Cosmetics among others, and the selection of places to grab food is extremely impressive too.
Something else this mall is known for is its indoor rainstorm, something that was kept from when the previous mall known as Desert Passage was rebranded as Miracle Mile.
Every hour – and every half-hour on Fridays to Saturdays – you can witness this spectacular display of fog, thunder, lightning and rain inside the mall, and it won’t cost you a thing!
- Opening times: Sun-Thu – 10am-11pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-12am
The Fashion Show Mall
Despite some stiff competition from places like The Forum and Miracle Mile, with over 250 shops and no fewer than seven department stores, Fashion Show is currently Vegas’ largest mall, making it a must for all fans of retail therapy.
The mall itself is a distinctive and original piece of architecture, and it’s also the only major mall that isn’t connected to one of the resorts.
The name of the mall comes from the fact that you can watch live fashion shows inside weekly, so if you’re not sure what to buy, you might be able to pick up a few tips from the models strutting their stuff on the mall’s runway.
Of course, there’s no shortage of places to eat in Fashion Show, and the mall boasts one of the city’s largest food courts.
So in short, if you’re looking for one mall to visit that has everything to offer all under one roof, this one should be high on your list of options.
- Opening times: Mon-Sat – 10am-9pm, Sun – 11am-7pm
Grand Bazaar Shops
Grand Bazaar Shops is an outdoor mall that’s part of Bally’s, and it’s a fun place to spend a couple of hours browsing the popular stores and perhaps grabbing a beer or two in one of the trendy brewpubs found there.
There’s also a respectable selection of international restaurants, and if you head there in the evening, you might be lucky enough to catch one of the free music shows that are sometimes held.
Something else to look out for after dark is the light and sound show that repeats every 15 minutes above the mall.
Once a night you can also witness the Swarovski Starburst show when a crystal ball made of 900 Swarovski crystals is illuminated by powerful LEDs. This takes place every evening just before 9pm and lasts just a few minutes, so make sure you’re not late or you’ll miss it!
Opening times: Sun-Thu – 10am-10pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-11pm
Le Boulevard at Paris
Modelled on a quintessential Parisian street and open from early until late every day, this quaint indoor mall brings a taste of the French capital to Vegas.
Many of the restaurants there have a Parisian theme too, so you can complete the illusion by treating yourself to a typical French meal.
The Paris resort also boasts a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower with a viewing deck 460 feet up, affording great views over the rest of the city.
- Opening times: Daily – 8am-2am
The LINQ Promenade
An ideal place to head if you want to combine shopping with eating, drinking and entertainment, the LINQ Promenade has everything you could ask for and more.
Whether you want to spend your time shopping for clothes, buying fancy candy or sipping a cocktail in a chic bar, you can do it at LINQ, and since it’s so conveniently located right in the heart of The Strip, you’re sure to have time to stop by and check out what’s on offer.
And while you’re there, if you somehow start to get bored, you can also try riding the zipline or the High Roller Observation Wheel just to keep things interesting and varied.
- Opening times: All day, every day
If you’re staying in Vegas but find yourself growing tired of the desert and yearning for a tropical beach instead, you can head to the Hawaiian Marketplace, located on The Strip, to get your fix of laidback island vibes.
This outdoor shopping center is modelled on Honolulu’s International Marketplace, and it’s a great place to do a spot of shopping against a backdrop of tropical plants and Hawaiian-themed décor.
- Opening times: All day, every day – stores generally open 10am-10pm daily
Shopping Mall Near The Strip
There are several other malls in town a bit further from The Strip, so if you’re in Vegas with a bit of time to spare, here are a couple you might also be interested in checking out.

Located a little further south of what most people would consider The Strip but a mall that’s worth making the effort to reach, Town Square has shops, bars, restaurants and more.
There’s a good range of retail outlets to choose from, and many of them fall into the more affordable category, so if you don’t have the budget for top-end fashion, this is a mall that you should find more accessible.
There are plenty of fun and trendy places to eat and drink, including the ever-popular Blue Martini, and gamers, in particular, are well-served by GameWorks, one of the top places in town for playing classic arcade and modern video games.
There’s also an 18-screen cinema for anyone who feels like catching the latest movie, and the outdoor village-style layout of the development makes the whole area a pleasant place just to hang out whenever you have some free time.
- Opening times: Mon-Thu – 10am-9pm, Fri & Sat – 10am-10pm, Sun – 11am-8pm
Situated to the east of The Strip and housing at least 140 stores, Boulevard Mall is the oldest in Vegas.
In recent years, it has become popular with the local Hispanic and Filipino communities, and it’s now well-known for its events and shows along with its range of interesting dining options.
You’ll also find a decent selection of stores, including well-known high street brands like Foot Locker and Victoria’s secret.
If you’re staying on The Strip, this mall might not be worth making a special trip out to see – but if you’re in the neighborhood, it’s a fun place to explore and perhaps grab something to eat while you’re there.
- Opening times: Daily – 11am-7pm
A Shopper’s Paradise
As you can see, if you love shopping, Vegas will be like a playground for you. From high-end, exclusive malls to places with more affordable stores, the options are almost bewildering – so probably the hardest part will be deciding which one to visit first.
