Vegas Love – Best Shopping Destinations

Have you scrapped Las Vegas as a holiday destination? Don’t think it’s going to be your cup of tea? Think again. Vegas is more than just late nights and pitchers of margaritas, it’s also long days pounding the pavement to hit up some of the best shopping spots I have ever been to. Here is my pick of the best spots Vegas has to offer…

Best In-Casino Shopping

The Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes: A large variety of high-end boutiques spanning all the way through to the neighbouring Palazzo Casino, with plenty of cafes and romantic canal rides.

Caesars Palace: The BIGGEST and best in casino shopping and host to 3 floors of H&M. Save a whole day for this place.

Planet Hollywood: Miracle Mile is one big circle of great shopping including a Sephora and is home to Vegas’ only Urban Outfitters.

Best Vegas Outlets – There are 3 outlets worthy of a trip….

Premium Outlets North: Mostly outdoor and at a lower price range, the north outlets are a great place for a bargain hunter.

Premium Outlets South: About a 15 drive from the strip, the south outlets are indoors and are a little more on-trend than the north.

Primm Valley Fashion Outlets: The best by far in my opinion, and worth the 40 minute drive from the strip. Constantly hosting great sales with personal favourites being a Kate Spade and a Converse store.

Best outer-Casino Shopping

There is only one actual shopping centre for me in Vegas…

Fashion Show Mall : All my favourite stores in one, with a brand new Topshop and TOPMAN!!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK!

FAVOURITE EATS

Miss Lily’s – Spontaneous Caribbean vacation getaway.

Jamaican hut, juice bar, bakery, record store and radio station brings tropical vibes to downtown Manhattan. We fell in love with Miss Lily’s as soon as we heard the sweet sounds of reggae. The place is decked out with vinal booths, album covers and the staff are just oh so dreamy. Specialising in classic island cooking the jerk grilled corn with toasted coconut was definitely the favourite followed by the curried goat and jerk pork burgers. Washing it down with delicious cocktails like the “Pressure Drop” (sake, lime juice and kaffir lime leaves).

Runners up:

Drunk brunch with a kick – Poco NY

Wine and dine – Beauty and Essex

Gourmet gastro pub – The Spotted Pig

Field day of food – Smorgasburg Brooklyn flea food market

Bakery boutique – Three Tarts ice cream sandwiches are delish!

SHOPPING

To see local designers you must go and visit the Flea markets in Brooklyn – Brooklyn’s Artists and Flea Markets.

Best op shop/second-hand store was the Family Jewels and Beacons Closet. You’ll find some fabulous pieces dating right back to the flappers and gangsters.
