Le Boulevard is très European. From the brass lamps to the cobblestone "streets" to the small, intimate boutiques, Paris is alive and well in Las Vegas.
Make your way straight down the middle of the casino (or straight ahead if you parked in the parking garage) and you'll hit Le Boulevard, the shopper's main drag, where the majority of stores and restaurants reside (if only it were this easy in France). Les Mémoires offers intricately designed clocks, cute wedding figurines, bath products, frames and other bric-a-brac. Les Eléments features throw pillows and china.
No boulevard would be complete without good food, and Le Boulevard has JJ's Boulangerie. It's a great place for a sandwich, and since it's also a working bakery, you can sit in on the preparation. And La Crêperie, the crêperie stand adjacent to JJ's, will satisfy all tastes, from the sweet tooth to the seafood lover. La Cave features goodies like French wines, imported cheeses and other treats that you can buy for friends or enjoy yourself.
Shops in the Bally's - Paris Promenade include Optica, a designer eyeglass and sunglass boutique and Paris Line, featuring designer clothing and accessories. The promenade also includes Perfume de Paris, Swarovski and Glitz To Go for jewelry and accessories.
Le Boulevard is conveniently located in the back of the hotel-casino, near the parking garage and the convention center, which means you don't have to walk through the casino if you want only to shop. First-time visitors, however, should walk through the casino to get the full effect -- the legs of the Eiffel Tower protrude onto the casino floor. Take a ride to the top if you're not acrophobic. Check out the lobby, which replicates the Palace of Versailles, with its ornate crystal chandeliers and plush circular seats. Magnifique!
While you're shopping at Paris Las Vegas, don't forget to check out the celebrity favorite, Sugar Factory American Brasserie. Open 24 hours, this restaurant offers everything from red velvet buttermilk pancakes and chicken and waffles to freshly-made crêpes, sweet pizzas, frozen hot chocolate and chocolate fondues.
