Gambling may be king in Las Vegas, but the city is making room for some grand shopping.
Grand Bazaar Shops, scheduled to open in fall 2014 at the entrance to Bally’s Las Vegas, will be an outdoor shopping meca with more than 150 shops on more than two acres. Along with food, dining and bar venues, Grand Bazaar Shops will blend the old and the new like a fine spice mix, paying homage to the world’s greatest open-air markets while creating new modern attractions.
Helping redefine the iconic Las Vegas skyline with a new, must-see experience will be a spectacular Swarovski Crystal Starburst towering over the brand’s store, with a midnight spectacle of lights and music that will make every night feel like New Year’s Eve at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
Inspiration came from the great market sof the world — the Grand Bazaar in Instanbul, Portobello Road and Cambden Markets in London and night markets in Asia.
The project is being built at the busiest intersection in the city – Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, across from the Bellagio fountains and surrounded by Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, Flamingo Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas – on a site that 20 plus million people pass through each year, reaching more than half of the city’s annual tourist population. Not tucked away inside a mall, Grand Bazaar Shops can be accessed directly from the Strip, Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, and via the bridges from the Bellagio and from Flamingo Las Vegas and Harrah’s.
Many tenants are the first of their kind in Las Vegas, the United States or worldwide, with categories spanning apparel, footwear, eyewear, accessories, jewelry, health/beauty, specialty, electronics and entertainment.
Tenants will include well-known brands like Swarovski and Swatch, hot international companies expanding their presence in the U.S. like Superdry, Havaianas and Campo Marzio, and special boutiques from around the United States.
