The Forum Shops at Caesars, also known as The Forum Shops, is an upscale shopping mall connected to Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Measured in terms of sales per square foot, it is the highest grossing mall in the United States.

History

The mall was built as an extension wing of the main hotel and casino in 1992. The idea was first suggested by Sheldon M. Gordon to Henry Gluck who served as chairman and chief executive officer of Caesars World from 1983 to 1994. [2] In 1998, there were plans to expand the mall and add its first department store, with completion scheduled by mid-2000. [3] The Forum was expanded further in 2004 to front Las Vegas Boulevard on the Strip.

The Forum Shops at Caesars is the highest grossing mall in the United States with higher sales per square foot than Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. [4] The mall includes 157 mid-range and luxury retailers, gourmet restaurants, and bars.
