Circa Resort & Casino, downtown Las Vegas’ first resort-casino built from the ground up in four decades, is now open.
The 1.25 million square foot, adults-only property pays homage to Vegas’ Golden Era through vintage design, old-school hospitality and nods to the city’s history while introducing high-tech advancements and cutting-edge amenities.
Conceived by developer and CEO Derek Stevens, Circa is one of the most ambitious projects in downtown Vegas’ 115-year history and the area’s first resort-casino built from the ground up in four decades.
As Vegas’ first adults-only resort, it also features the world’s largest sportsbook with a 78-million-pixel screen viewable to up to 1,000 people, the country’s largest destination pool experience for sports fans, open 365 days a year with a 14-million-pixel screen, food & beverage concepts by renowned chefs and restaurateurs from across the country, Nevada’s longest indoor bar spanning 165 feet. It’s also Vegas’ first resort with a fully integrated rideshare hub.
Hours before the official opening, Stevens hosted an intimate black-tie gala at the property for Vegas founding families and current casino operators to commemorate the first roll of the dice on Circa’s casino floor.
Stevens said: “For the past five years, the Circa team and our partners have been devoted to introducing a resort and casino experience that brings something totally new to Vegas, and in some cases, the country.
“I will be the first to admit that 2020 has not been easy, but this talented group persevered and has delivered on this vision, 8 weeks early. I’m incredibly proud to be putting 1,500 people to work and that our doors are finally open for all to visit Circa.”
Circa’s 777-room hotel tower and rooftop lounge, Legacy Club, will open on December 28, 2020, marking the completion of the project. For more information, visit circalasvegas.com.
