All around the world, luxury casinos continue to be popular destinations for those looking for high class entertainment. Despite the global reach, one location that remains relevant when it comes to casinos is Las Vegas. This autumn, The Entertainment Capital of the World will welcome a new establishment to the city. The Circa Resort & Casino is set to make its public debut on October 2020.
Old school charm
This will be the first casino established in downtown Las Vegas after decades, in what was previously known as the Las Vegas Club at Fremont and Main streets. Circa Resort & Casino’s brand of luxury is one that is reminiscent of old school Vegas – both in its hospitality and glamor. Vegas patrons will nod in recognition at the iconic neon Vegas Vickie sign hanging in the lobby as tribute. Standing at 35-stories, there will be 777 rooms and suites that are fashioned with minimalist yet playful interiors for all kinds of guests. The establishment’s noteworthy 71-degree tapered tower was designed by Steelman Partners and Circa’s Director of Design and Architecture, Alice O’Keefe. From this, you can get a dazzling view of the Vegas skyline.
A unique gaming experience
And now for the main event... The casino will be full of digital slots, inspired by its online casino counterparts. With online portals providing stiff competition for land-based gaming centres, Las Vegas’ integrated resorts have been learning a thing or two from them over recent years. With only the glitz and glamor missing, leading digital provider Foxy Games showcases how popular casino favorites such as blackjack, roulette, and baccarat have been ported to mobile-friendly platforms – not to mention offering hefty jackpots to boot. Given the wide selection of table games online, today’s physical casinos are constantly challenged to quite literally up their game. Circa has responded to the call and will not disappoint. Their two-story casino is outfitted with 49 table games and 1,350 slot machines. Its sportsbook can fit up to 1,000 visitors. It will also have a 78-million-pixel high definition screen in its stadium that can be viewed from several of its floors. And who said that online gaming was leading the way?
High and low
Circa Resort & Casino’s other amenities include the largest pool amphitheater in the US called Stadium Swim, which is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. There are six temperature-controlled pools surrounded by lounging areas, from which you can watch some of the biggest televised events on a 14-million-pixel screen. If you are looking to unwind, there are two spas and Super Cabanas available for rental. Circa aims to accommodate high and low-brow tastes, even with its dining experiences. There will be burger and wing joints, a deli, a BBQ food truck, and a steak house.
There’s something for everyone in Circa Resort & Casino. Mixing the high and low, as well as the old and the new will make for a one of a kind experience and a must-see destination that is sure to become a Vegas institution.
