Grand Bazaar Shops Aerial View
LAS VEGAS (Jan. 21, 2015) – Explore an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and attractions as the retail landscape of Las Vegas is transformed by the shimmering center-Strip shopping spectacle of the Grand Bazaar Shops™ Las Vegas. The much-anticipated retail attraction delivers big brand names, intimate boutiques and international flavors, all packed into a two-acre outdoor shopping promenade. Opening to the public on February 26, the immersive retail experience, located adjacent to Bally’s Las Vegas, features more than 120 shops, including exclusive first-to-market brands and unique international retailers at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
LAS VEGAS—Everything in Vegas is a production, even the shopping malls.
Over the next couple of years, a number of casinos will unveil new shopping areas that are not just commercial centers but attractions in their own right. Many have outdoor areas, a departure from typical Vegas resort design, which funnels people indoors into the casinos.

Grand Bazaar Shops, a collection of more than a 150 stores, is scheduled to open this fall in Las Vegas.
Inspired by markets around the world such as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Portobello Road in London and the souks in Northern Africa, the 55,000-square-foot outdoor space will be located on the Strip at the entrance to Bally’s Las Vegas.

His design and concept inspiration was the “world’s great markets,” such as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, the night markets in Asia and the spice markets in India.
