November 30, 2011 12:12 AM


Trying to pin down the best boutiques in Vegas is no small task. Las Vegas is known for its world-class, super-sized shopping — selections that rival even Manhattan and Beverly Hills. Before we point you to a few unique boutiques proper, definite must-sees are Crystals at CityCenter Las Vegas ( and the brand-new boutiques of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, boasting some of the most specialized retailers anywhere. These Las Vegas centers also house more top-notch boutiques than most major cities: The Forum Shops at Caesars, Via Bellagio Shops, Mandalay Place, The Grande Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, The Shoppes at The Palazzo, The Fashion Show, Wynn-Encore specialty stores and Barneys New York’s Las Vegas Boutique. But these next four are some true standout boutiques. — Marco Medrano
