Painted skies, living statues and Las Vegas’ first celebrity chef.The Forum Shops at Caesars continues to lead the retail industry both domestically and internationally by setting trends and being “first” in the Las Vegas market.Early 2010 will be no exception as Las Vegas’ first Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man and Christian Audigier are set to be opened this year.

With these openings to look forward to in 2010, The Forum Shops has long enjoyed its plethora of industry firsts.In 1992, Wolfgang Puck became the first celebrity chef to open a restaurant in Las Vegas.Spago set the trend of world-renowned chefs breaking the city of its stereotypical buffets and midnight specials by bringing California cuisine to guests.Today, Las Vegas is known around the world for having the largest prestigious collection of chefs along the Strip.

Coming this summer, for Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man, chocolate is not just about taste; it also represents romance, sensuality and decadence.A worldwide phenomenon with menu primarily made from chocolate, Max Brenner’s location at The Forum Shops will hold the distinction of being the largest at 9,400 square feet.Also to catch the guests’ eyes: enormous white vats mixing chocolate that will flow into pipes that run throughout the entire space.The decor will also feature huge bricks, candles, pralines, colorful toy tines and crates overflowing with cocoa beans.Currently, including Las Vegas, there will be 29 total locations, with two in the United States: New York City and Philadelphia.
