The Grand Bazaar Shops, set to open in Fall 2014 at the entrance to Bally's Las Vegas, draw design inspiration from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and the Portobello Road and Camden Markets in London.
The area will host over 150 shops on more than two acres, along with a variety of food, dining and bar venues. The center will be topped by a Swarovski Crystal Starburst over the brand's store, with a midnight show of lights and music.
"The inspiration came from the great markets of the world I've seen - the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Portobello Road and Camden Markets in London, the fantastic night markets in Asia, the spice markets in India, the souks of Northern Africa and the Middle East," said Laurence Siegel, chairman of Juno Property Group. "With their rich colors, sounds and smells, these wonderful shopping experiences are often the centerpiece of local culture and commerce. With Grand Bazaar Shops, we aim to marry recent developments in retail, which have seen smaller, more unique and interactive stores in a variety of shopping environments. Grand Bazaar Shops will be a new, visually distinctive feature of the Strip, its aesthetically beautiful mosaic-patterned rooftops designed to resemble the colorful, undulating roofs of classic bazaars, inspired by those in Europe and worldwide."
Launching with close to 55,000 square feet, Grand Bazaar Shops is designed to be easily walkable. Major tenants include Swarovski, Swatch, Superdry, Havaianas and Campo Marzio. More than a third of the project is dedicated to restaurant and bar concepts as well as food stores, such as five separate shops from American chef Sam Marvin offering artisanal cupcakes, ice cream, macaroons, meats, and spices.
