Circa opens hotel tower, two months after casino debut


Downtown Las Vegas resort also unveils rooftop lounge with views, gold display.

Circa Resort & Casino on Monday opened its 777-room hotel tower and rooftop lounge, known as the Legacy Club, exactly two months after its casino and sportsbook made their public debut.

The newest property on the Fremont Street Experience was built where Las Vegas Club, Mermaids and Glitter Gulch once stood.

Circa is owned by brothers Greg and Derek Stevens, who also own The D and Golden Gate.

The new resort was designed by Las Vegas-based architect Paul Steelman and Steelman Partners.

The 60-floor, 71-degree tower is the tallest structure north of the Las Vegas Strip.

The resort said its first hotel guests will receive a limited edition, 18k gold plated bar, decorated with Circa’s logo and opening date. Additional bars will be available for purchase for $125.

Each of Circa’s standard rooms are equipped with a tablet for booking reservations at the sportsbook, restaurants and Stadium Swim, the resort’s massive swimming pool complex.

The Legacy Club is on the 60th floor of the hotel tower, and has 360-degree views of Las Vegas. Officials said the indoor/outdoor 8,400-square-foot space includes an entryway with a series of custom metal busts of iconic Vegas pioneers and legends, including Jackie Gaughan, Benny Binion and Howard Hughes.

The lounge also will feature a display of 1,000 ounces of pure gold. A ticker above the Circa-branded gold bars will show their combined value based on the current price of gold.

“They say to save the best for last, and when you visit our hotel tower and Legacy Club, you will see that is exactly what we did,” Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa, said in a statement.
