Las Vegas just got a gorgeous new addition to its skyline.
Circa Resort & Casino opened its doors this past Wednesday to excited residents wanting to see inside the much anticipated hotel. It’s the first ever 21-and-older resort in Las Vegas, and the first ground-up casino to be built in Las Vegas in thirty years.
But being the first adults-only casino in town isn’t the only record Circa breaks. The sleek towering hotel is now the tallest building downtown, and covers an unbelievable 1.2 million square feet. It’s also home to Nevada’s longest indoor bar, and the world’s largest sportsbook, which spans three stories and can accommodate approximately 1,000 people.
What’s sure to be one of the most popular elements of the resort is Stadium Swim, a spectacular rooftop pool area like never before. It is a series of six heated pools, including two spas, as well as two swim bars and 30 cabanas. The area is said to hold around 4,000 people, and has a colossal 143-foot screen so that you don’t miss a single play.
Despite the timing of the pandemic, Las Vegas has welcomed the hotel with open arms, as it has reemployed hundreds of local residents. “This project is clearly my largest project that my brother and I have been involved with, and I think it’s even more special with what’s happening in 2020,” owner Derek Stevens told KTNV Las Vegas.
Circa hosts a stunning two-story casino, several bars and restaurants, and 777 luxurious rooms and suites spanning 34 floors. With its unique mix of classic and futuristic grandeur, Circa promises to bring Las Vegas into a new golden age.
Most of the hotel’s amenities are currently open to the public, although the hotel tower is still being completed, with an estimated opening in late December.
