Upscale Shopping at the Pier Shops at Caesars

Things to Do — By melodymoser on October 18, 2010 at 10:45 am

The upscale stores at the Pier Shops at Caesars are located on a 900-foot pier that stretches over the Atlantic Ocean. Here, at the center of the Boardwalk between Arkansas and Missouri Avenues and directly across the Boardwalk from Caesars Atlantic City Hotel and Casino, you’ll find luxury retailers and restaurants as well as outdoor decks where you can get some great ocean views.

The Boardwalk and skybridge levels of the Pier are where you’ll find the shops. While most are upscale such as Tiffany & Co., Gucci and Louis Vuitton, you’ll also find mall staples where you won’t have to blow all of your winnings. These include Victoria’s Secret, the Body Shop, Gymboree, Banana Republic, and even a Starbucks.

If you’re hungry, Starbucks isn’t your only option. The Pier’s third level is where you’ll find a variety of restaurants, such as Souzai Sushi & Sake, Buddakan, and Trinity Irish Pub & Carvery. You can also grab a snack at Phillip’s Seafood Express near the Boardwalk entrance, at Boardwalk Favorites at the far end of the Pier on the skybridge level, or at Giorgios at the far end of the Boardwalk level.

You’ll find The Water Show at the far end of the Pier. Performances of this sound and light extravaganza take place every hour on the hour beginning at noon.

The Pier has an interesting history. It was first built in 1906 as the famed Million Dollar Pier, featuring performers such as Harry Houdini as well as early Miss America pageants until a fire swept through it in 1912. More recently it was known as Ocean One. Today, it’s the perfect place to go when you’re in the mood for shopping.
