The Wynn Esplanade Shopping Area
By Steve Beauregard
(Note: As of this writing in January 2017, Wynn Plaza, the 75,000 square foot retail addition to the Wynn is currently still under construction. It is expected to open in the fall of this year, and we will update this page as it progresses).
High, bright ceilings, wide hallways, towering curtains, luxurious shops, red carpeting complimenting beautiful tile. Welcome to the Wynn Esplanade.
Retailers at the 75,000 square foot Esplanade include Christian Dior, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Rolex (the only American Rolex store), and Prada.
Here is a list of the other stores at the Wynn Las Vegas, along with a brief description of the stores.
For our purposes here, we’re including shops along the Encore Esplanade, which is the equally beautiful hallway connecting the Wynn to the Encore. It’s home to uber-hip nightclub XS (ranked by Nightclub & Bar as the number one nightclub in the United States), as well as the very red Le Reve – the Dream theater.
McQueen was the famous designer from England, whose reputation has only escalated since his suicide in 2010. The four time winner of the prestigious “British Designer of Year” launched a company that is now famous for dressing the stars – many of whom wear the McQueen label at big time gala award shows, including the Academy Awards.
This upscale Italian men’s wear retailer is just one of six Brionis in the United States.
Brioni is the designer of the official suit for James Bond. (Yes he’s fictional, but it’s still incredibly cool). Other, more real clientele have included everyone from Clark Gable to John Wayne, to former President George W. Bush. Former mob boss John Gotti’s “dapper don” nickname came in part from his love of Brioni suits.

Wynn/Encore Esplanade Shopping Hours
Sunday – Thursday: 10 AM to 11 PM
Friday and Saturday: 10 AM to Midnight
Previously the Wynn/Encore was home to that very rare store: a Ferrari dealership, however that 10,000 square foot showroom store has since closed as part of the Wynn Plaza construction.
Once Wynn Plaza opens, the resort will have 173,500 square feet of retail space. The two-story shopping plaza will front the Las Vegas Strip, and will include additional restaurants.
Overall, shopping at the Wynn Las Vegas is not for the faint of heart. However it does provide my wife and probably millions of other women, a fun way to dream for an afternoon.
