The Circa Resort & Casino in downtown Las Vegas has pushed up its opening to Oct. 28, two months earlier than initially planned, as the city tries to bounce back from the pandemic restriction.
The Circa is planning to open its two-story casino (1,350 slot machines and 49 table games) and its three-story, stadium-style sportsbook On Oct. 28. The property’s pool amphitheater (six pools, two spas and a 14 million-pixel screen that will air sporting events) will also be open.
Restaurants include Saginaw’s Delicatessen, steakhouse venue Barry’s Downtown Prime, sports bar Victory Burger & Wings Co., and Carolina-style barbecue joint Project BBQ, are also due to open. The Asian-inspired 8 East is expected to follow in December.
The nine-floor parking garage, called the Garage Mahal, will also open in October. The complex will offer valet and self-parking, as well as a first floor for Uber and Lyft transportation.
The property will be the first new casino built from the ground up in the downtown market in four decades. Stevens, working with his brother Greg, won’t open the resort’s 777-room hotel tower until later this year. The Covid-19 crisis put limits on how many workers the company could put in elevators during construction, so the developers redirected funds to complete the lower floors first.
Circa hasn’t announced an opening date for its hotel tower even though it plans to start taking reservations on June 24. Circa said it expects to open hotel rooms before the end of the year.
