Grand Bazaar Shops Las Vegas to open in February
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.
“Grand Bazaar Shops will captivate people looking for something more than what today’s brick-and-mortar retail outlets typically provide,” said Larry Siegel, chairman of Juno Property Group. “This new concept that we are introducing at the 50-yard line of the Las Vegas Strip is truly special and we feel the experiences within it will create a must-see attraction for visitors and locals alike. We are reimagining retail at the crossroads of the busiest intersection in Las Vegas.”
Food, Fashion & Fun
The attraction brings together a dynamic mix of merchants and restaurants in an urban shopping scene rich with culture, fashion, food, and a multitude of engaging experiences. Guests will be able to interact with stores in which they can design their own sandals, barter for the best price, observe live artists creating fine art, explore virtual showrooms, and more.
Spanning more than two acres, Grand Bazaar Shops will introduce a host of boutiques with sizes ranging from 150-300 square feet. In addition, a select group of retailers will have a larger presence, with boutiques ranging from 1,000-2,400 square feet. Grand Bazaar will also feature a diverse array of food, bar and restaurant concepts, occupying 26,500 square feet of space, some with second-story views overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.
Reminiscent of world-renowned markets such as Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar and London’s Portobello Road, and newer examples such as New York City’s Grand Central Terminal and San Francisco’s Ferry Building, Grand Bazaar Shops will evoke a sense of discovery with its varied and one-of-a-kind apparel, footwear, eyewear, accessories, jewelry, health and beauty, specialty and electronics offerings.
Popular brands such as Swarovski, Swatch and UGG & TOMS will delight shoppers with distinctive store models and experiences not found elsewhere. U.S. brands making their Las Vegas debut include Hawaiian fashion and home furnishings retailer Martin & MacArthur and Los Angeles handbag designer Hammitt. Additionally, Grand Bazaar Shops will feature popular international companies expanding their presence in the U.S. like Superdry, a U.K. fashion retailer, Havaianas, a Brazilian footwear company, and Costa Rican jewelry brand AG by Ana Gutierrez Wearable Art.
Lighting Up The Las Vegas Strip
Central to the Grand Bazaar Shops’ experience will be the Swarovski Crystal Starburst. Brilliantly colored light with sound and video, the Starburst soars above Grand Bazaar Shops’ colorful, mosaic-patterned rooftop canopy and will be the star of a nightly LED spectacle. The 14-foot-diameter sparkling sphere, composed of 924 custom-cut Swarovski crystals and more than 1,800 points of light, will be an exciting focal point of the new retail venue.
