Forum Shops Review
Amazing ambience, architecture, and design means visitors won't have to drop a single dime to enjoy touring this highly accessible mid-Strip mall. Leave the high heels at home to better roam three levels of restaurants and retail—some paths cobblestoned—that resemble an ancient Roman streetscape, with scattered statuary, immense columns and arches, two central piazzas with ornate fountains, and a cloud-filled ceiling-sky that changes from sunrise to sunset over the course of three hours (to subconsciously spur shoppers to step up their pace of acquisition, perhaps?). The Mitsubishi-designed freestanding Spiral Escalator is a must-ride for the view.
Of course, shopaholics will rejoice at the selection of designer shops and traditional standbys, from high-end heavy hitters such as Tahari, Brooks Brothers, Gucci, Fendi, Kors, Louboutin, Choo, Ferragamo, Pucci, Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Balenciaga, to more casual labels like Lucky, Juicy, Bebe, Diesel, Nike, Guess, and Gap/Gap Kids. Armani fans will find an Emporio and Exchange for menswear, along with John Varvatos, Valentino, Hugo Boss, and Thomas Pink. Gaze at stunning jewelry, watches, and crystal works at Baccarat, Cartier, Hearts on Fire, Tourneau, DeBeers, Pandora, Swarovski, and David Yurman. Apple offers a whole host of electronics, too. Cosmetics queens will keep themselves busy at Dior Beauty, Kiehl's, and MAC Pro Store. And don't miss the flagship Victoria's Secret for lingerie and swimwear, or Agent Provocateur and LaPerla, for that matter.
When all this walking/shopping brings on the inevitable hunger, head to The Palm or Wolfgang Puck's Spago. The Cheesecake Factory is popular, as well as bistro Max Brenner Chocolate: divine smells, luscious crepes, waffle sandwiches, and chocolate martinis and fondue—what's not to love?
