Circa Resort & Casino Reveals New Details For Multi-Level Pool Amphitheater, Stadium Swim

 

Circa Resort & Casino Reveals New Details For Multi-Level Pool Amphitheater, Stadium Swim

 

When Circa Resort & Casino opens its doors in Downtown Las Vegas on October 28, it will debut Stadium Swim, a multi-level destination pool amphitheater operating 365 days a year that’s primed to become one of the most exciting pool experiences in the country. For Stadium Swim renderings, click here.

Overlooking both Downtown Las Vegas and The Strip, Stadium Swim’s bold design will house a massive screen for sports fans and sunseekers to catch games and entertainment of all kinds. The venue also will feature state-of-the-art Ultraviolet Light (UVL) sanitation and water-recirculation patterns, providing guests with the cleanest and healthiest public pool experience in Las Vegas.

Stadium Swim reservations are now live at https://circalasvegas.com/stadium-swim/ and can be booked using an interactive 3D map.

“We’re building Stadium Swim to be unlike any pool in existence today and to reinvent the Vegas pool party, 365 days a year,” said Circa’s CEO Derek Stevens. “I can promise there will be no better location in the world to watch a big game than at Stadium Swim – even better than at the game itself. Beyond sports, it will be a great place to catch sun and listen to music, and I believe it will be a destination experience that inspires trips to Las Vegas.”

Serving as the backdrop of the multifunctional pool space, a 135 x 41-foot, 14-million-megapixel LED screen will broadcast major games and popular televised events. To keep the party going, local artists will helm Stadium Swim’s DJ booth with a daily roster of upbeat music. Additionally, two swim-up bars on the pool deck’s lower level will enable guests to order a beverage without leaving the water.

Designed by Steelman Partners, the multi-tiered outdoor amphitheater will boast six pools and two spas, with 15,756 square feet of wet space. Each body of water will be a different temperature ranging from 78 to 94 degrees depending on weather conditions. The fifth-level pools will be heated to a temperature of 104 degrees on colder days, providing guests with an après ski-like sensation, all while in the heart of the desert.

A glimpse into Stadium Swim:

Poolside Accommodations

Guests can relax and unwind in an assortment of poolside lounge areas, including 30 cabanas and super cabanas hosting up to 25 guests. Approximately 340 chaise lounges, 38 day beds and eight poolside boxes will be offered for both hotel guests and visitors to rent. Enhanced VIP experiences will be available with tableside services including dedicated servers and towel refreshment, in addition to luxurious spaces with couches.

Cleanliness and Sanitation

As water cleanliness is a key priority for Stadium Swim, Circa’s team conducted in-depth research on the development of a pool that can self-clean several times a day. As a result, Stadium Swim’s water will be fully recirculated four to six times faster than required by codes. While typical pool filters are filled with sand, Stadium Swim’s will use an activated material that is 100 percent bio-resistant and self-sterilizing glass material. This will allow for a greater surface cleaning area, resulting in clearer and healthier water that is two times more effective than if sand was used.

All eight water bodies will have UVL sanitizers, which are technologically advanced devices designed to destroy pathogens, bacteria, viruses, organic and inorganic contaminants, and greatly reduce chlorine use. Additionally, the pools will have highly sophisticated and real-time chemical monitoring controllers in place to continuously analyze the composition of all pool and spa water, second by second. Automated chlorine and chemical-dispensing systems will instantaneously adjust water chemistry throughout the day.

STO Design Group, Inc., Circa’s pool consultant, stated, ”Circa has adopted by far the fastest recirculation times of any pool in Las Vegas, and hasnvested in the most effective filter, continuous UV light treatment of all systems, top-of-the-line water chemistry analyzers and chemical feed systems. Together, this will deliver the cleanest and most sustainable pool water in the city.”

Food & Drink

Stadium Swim will serve up poolside fare through a collaboration between famed Michigan restaurateurs Paul Saginaw, Chris Sotiropoulos and Grace Keros.

Together, Paul, Chris and Grace will bring pool-goers a selection of elevated poolside bites, with menu highlights such as lobster corndogs with yuzu dipping sauce, fruit nachos, the Stadium Dog (Circa’s twist to a Sonoran Dog), and classic favorites.  Table service will be top notch, with faster delivery times thanks to the use of mobile tablets that send orders immediately to the kitchen or bar.

Saginaw is known worldwide for Zingerman’s Deli, which is consistently ranked among the world’s best sandwich joints. Keros and Sotiropoulos are the third-generation owners of Detroit’s iconic 103-year-old American Coney Island, which made its mark on American history when it invented the Coney Dog. Both will open original concepts at Circa this fall – Saginaw’s Delicatessen and Victory Burger & Wings Co., respectively.

Along with Circa, guests 21 and older staying at Stevens’ sister properties – the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino – will be able to access Stadium Swim for free and can enjoy the venue one hour before it opens to the public.

Stadium Swim will be open seven days a week, excluding closures for special or private events. For guests not staying at the hotel, there will be a fee for entrance. Lounge chairs will be available to rent in two- or four-hour increments. Daybeds/cabanas will be sold with a food and beverage minimum and can be reserved all day. The pool deck also can be rented out for private events, meetings, parties and more.

Circa Resort & Casino will be Downtown Las Vegas’ first ground-up casino resort since 1980. The 1.25-million-square-foot integrated resort will feature the world’s largest sportsbook, stylish rooms and suites, a selection of original restaurant concepts and more.

Circa Sports Debuts Colorado-Based Mobile App

With the debut of Circa Resort & Casino – Downtown Las Vegas’ first ground-up casino in four decades – set for October 28, the highly anticipated property is now taking reservations for the world’s largest sportsbook. Sports fans can be amongst the first to enjoy the three-story sports destination by reserving their spot at www.circalasvegas.com/sportsbook.

 

With the return of professional sports on the horizon, Circa will be the premier sportsbook for fans to celebrate their favorite teams and players. Operated by sports betting brand Circa Sports, the group of in-house experts are preparing to deliver guests one of the most diverse wagering menus in the city and an unforgettable betting experience for several upcoming events.

“Fans have proven time and time again that the demand for incredible sports betting experiences isn’t going away anytime soon,” said Circa’s CEO and developer Derek Stevens. “From atmosphere to offerings, Circa Sports will meet and exceed those expectations by giving guests the best and most exciting sportsbook they’ve ever stepped foot in.”

Launched in June 2019, Stevens’ brand has become a leader in the betting industry by combining superior customer-service with a team of the country’s top oddsmakers. Following a successful launch in Downtown Las Vegas, Circa Sports gave bettors the chance to turn fandom into fortune by hosting its first multi-million-dollar competition, the Circa Sports Million Contest. One year later, Stevens doubled down and expanded contest winnings with the return of the Circa Sports Million II Contest and the introduction of the Circa Survivor Contest, both of which promise their own million-dollar payouts. Extending the brand outside Las Vegas, Circa Sports also has announced the introduction of its Colorado-based mobile sports betting app through Circa Sports Colorado.

The World’s Largest Sportsbook

Housed in the 1.25 million-square-foot resort, Circa’s stadium-style sportsbook will be the property’s centerpiece with a 78-million-pixel, high-definition screen. Featured prominently throughout the resort’s casino, guests can watch the screen from a number of locations including Victory Burger & Wings Co., a sports bar-themed dining experience overlooking the space.

With the capacity to host up to 1,000 fans at any given time, the massive space promises an unparalleled viewing experience paired with the friendliest customer service in the city. The third floor will feature a dedicated broadcast studio for VSiN, The Sports Betting Network (VSiN), giving bettors real-time, in-depth analysis from expert broadcasters, athletes and industry professionals.

Guests can reserve a spot at Circa’s sportsbook for both day-of visits and future events, with pricing varying by occasion. Delivering a different viewing experience per section, the space will provide visitors with several reservation options from top tier to basic seating:

  • For fans who love the front row, The Dugout will offer VIP single-seat cushioned chairs directly in front of the three-story screen.
  • Just behind The Dugout, the Legends Club will make guests feel like an MVP as they cheer on their favorite teams from plush recliners.
  • Perfect for larger groups, the Champions Club section will include long, booth-style seating right behind the Legends.
  • Both the Circa Club Upper and Circa Club Lower sections will consist exclusively of booth seating, promising an intimate space to take in all the action.
  • Two areas featuring luxury stadium-style seating – the North and South Stands – will flank the sports book, offering tiered viewing for optimal vantage points.

Circa Sports currently operates at the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino and is helmed by Sports Director and longtime Las Vegas betting expert, Matt Metcalf.

Mobile Betting Reaches the Rockies

Following a successful launch in Las Vegas, Circa Sports is also expanding its operations in the Mile-High state with the introduction of a convenient mobile betting app. A subsidiary of Circa Sports, Circa Sports Colorado will provide a Vegas-style sports betting menu, including creative prop bets, higher and fairer betting limits and lower holds on futures markets than competitors. Fans can download and activate mobile wagering accounts from the comfort of their home, fund their Circa Sports app balance remotely and sign up for various contests – all through the new mobile app.

The app will allow Colorado bettors to wager on sports that have remained active including UFC, international soccer, NASCAR, Korean baseball, MLB, futures betting for NFL and College Football and more.

The Mob Museum Launches New Exhibition – “Rise of the Cartels: International Drug Trafficking in the Americas”

THE MOB MUSEUM LAUNCHES NEW FIRST-FLOOR EXHIBITION – “RISE OF THE CARTELS: INTERNATIONAL DRUG TRAFFICKING IN THE AMERICAS”

 The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces a new temporary exhibition titled “Rise of the Cartels: International Drug Trafficking in the Americas.” The exhibition is located on The Mob Museum’s first-floor.

The exhibition explores the history of international drug trafficking in North and South America, providing insights about infamous drug lords such as Pablo Escobar as well as an architectural model of the Mexican prison and tunnels tracing the escape route for drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. It also examines fact versus fiction in the popular Netflix television series “Narcos” and “Narcos: Mexico.”

The exhibition features artifacts on loan from four different retired Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) special agents who battled the cartels in Colombia and Mexico from the 1970s through the 1990s. Select artifacts on display were provided by two former agents, Steve Murphy and Javier Pena, who helped take down Colombian kingpin Pablo Escobar and whose work inspired the “Narcos” series. These artifacts include original documents, photos, badges, awards, clothing, a firearm and other objects directly tied to the agents’ battles with drug cartels. Additionally, a video montage will feature original photographs from Murphy and Pena’s personal collection.

Other artifacts were provided by former special agents James “Jaime” Kuykendall and Pedro “Pete” Hernandez, who were stationed in Guadalajara, Mexico, in the 1980s and worked closely with special agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who was kidnapped, tortured and killed by Mexican cartel members in 1985. Kuykendall is a major character in “Narcos: Mexico.”

The exhibition also will feature artifacts from the Museum’s collection, including a rare original copy of a commemorative leather-bound book of political cartoons that Escobar published not long before his death.

1,000 lucky locals can get Free Gas and Staycation perks

For nearly fifty years, the Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas has been a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. This summer, the Plaza is partnering with another iconic Southern Nevada-based company Terrible Herbst to offer 1,000 lucky locals a unique staycation.

The first 1,000 local residents to book a two night stay at the Plaza online with the code GAS20 will receive a free $50 gas gift card from Terrible’s, two free drinks at the Plaza’s Omaha Bar or rooftop pool, $50 in match play, a complimentary room upgrade and early check in/late check out. (Limit one gas card per person, staycation reservation must be before Aug. 27, and local ID required at check-in. Complete details at: https://www.plazahotelcasino.com/gas20).

Summer vacations are a longstanding American tradition. We can’t wait to welcome our locals who are looking to relax and enjoy a break – not far from home and just steps away from everything downtown Las Vegas has to offer.”

 

“Terrible’s was established in Southern Nevada back in 1959, and we pride ourselves on being a strong supporter of this amazing community,” said Bryan Breeden, vice president of marketing for Terrible Herbst, Inc. “When presented with the opportunity to partner with an iconic Las Vegas brand and landmark, the Plaza Hotel & Casino, we jumped at the opportunity!

Circa Resort & Casino to Open October 28, 2020

CIRCA RESORT & CASINO TO OPEN IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE ON OCTOBER 28, 2020

 

Opening Will Mark First Downtown Gaming Resort Built from Ground Up in Four Decades

oday, CEO and developer Derek Stevens announced his newest Downtown Las Vegas property, Circa Resort & Casino, will debut October 28, 2020.

 

Previously slated for a December 2020 launch, the 1.25 million-square-foot integrated casino-resort will open with its first five floors of amenities and state-of-the-art parking hub – Garage Mahal – ahead of schedule. Upon completion, the resort will have approximately 1,000 employees.

 

To achieve this expedited timeline, Stevens reallocated construction resources from Circa’s hotel tower to the first five floors. Slated for completion at the end of 2020, the tower will house Circa’s 777 rooms and suites starting on the eighth floor; room reservations will go live June 24. Guests looking to visit prior to the tower opening can reserve rooms at the D Las Vegas or Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, also owned by Stevens, and enjoy access to Circa’s pool in addition to its public amenities.

 

“Sometimes life throws you curveballs, and 2020 has been an unpredictable year for the entire world,” said Stevens. “However, thanks to the creativity and ingenuity from our partners at McCarthy Building Companies Inc. and Tré Builders, we can move forward on this accelerated path and have an opening unlike Las Vegas has experienced. We are excited to see what the future holds and to give visitors and locals something to celebrate.”

 

 

Located on the world-famous Fremont Street Experience (FSE), Circa will offer guests the following amenities on October 28:

  • World’s Largest Sportsbook – One of Circa’s signature features will be its three-story, stadium-style sportsbook, boasting a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen that will be viewable throughout Circa’s two-story casino with a capacity to host up to 1,000 guests. Operated by Stevens’ sports betting venture Circa Sports, the third floor will house a dedicated broadcast studio for Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN), offering bettors in-depth expert analysis daily from broadcasters, athletes and industry professionals.
  • Pool Amphitheater – Operating 365 days a year, Circa’s pool amphitheater will quickly become an outdoor entertainment destination for sports watching, special events and parties. Year-round, guests can catch the biggest games and major televised events broadcast on the 14-million-pixel screen presiding over Circa’s six temperature-controlled pools and two spas. Larger groups can partake in one of the pool’s Super Cabanas, which can host up to 50 guests. Situated on Circa’s fifth floor, the venue also will feature its own food & beverage venue and music from DJs and special guests.
  • Original Food & Beverage Concepts
    • Saginaw’s Delicatessen – From legendary Michigan restaurateur Paul Saginaw, Saginaw’s Delicatessen will be a family style deli. Saginaw is known worldwide for the iconic Zingerman’s Deli – an Ann Arbor institution he opened with partner Ari Weinzweig in 1982 – that is consistently ranked among the world’s best sandwich joints. Saginaw’s Delicatessen will mark Paul’s first venture outside of the Zingerman’s brand, and will include his famous Reuben and creative sandwiches, as well as delicatessen favorites such as matzo ball soup, onion rings, salads, latkes, chopped liver, breakfast specialties and more.
      • Barry’s Downtown Prime – As Circa’s premier steakhouse, Barry’s Downtown Prime will evoke vintage Vegas’ glamour and hospitality. From Chef Barry S. Dakake and his collaborators at Make It Happen Hospitality, Barry’s Downtown Prime will feature succulent steaks, seafood and a dynamic cocktail program. Barry’s will bring guests back to the classic cool of the 50s and 60s when great music and sounds of clinking martini glasses filled the air, the chef greeted you at the table, the bartender knew your favorite cocktail and everyone felt like a VIP.
      • Victory Burger & Wings Co. – Created by the founding family of the 102-year-old American Coney Island, Victory Burger & Wings Co. will be Circa’s high-energy sports bar. Helmed by Chris Sotiropoulos and Grace Keros, the lively venue will offer ½ pound burgers, crispy wings, unbeatable fries and an excellent beer selection. Guests can catch sports action on TVs throughout the space in addition to a prime view of the massive three-story screen in Circa’s sportsbook. Additionally, Victory Burger & Wings Co. will have its own radio booth, where fans might spot their favorite sports talk show conducting a broadcast on gameday.
      • Project BBQ – Local food truck Project BBQ will find a permanent home at Circa. Helmed by Chef Rex Bernales, Project BBQ will serve up authentic Carolina-style barbecue including mouthwatering pulled brisket, pork, chicken and more. Situated on Circa’s exterior, Project BBQ will spill out onto FSE with a built-in “backyard” for communal gathering. Guests can dine on picnic tables and sip cocktails from Circa’s outdoor bar as they enjoy spectacular light shows from Viva Vision overhead and live music from surrounding concert stages.
  • Two-Story Casino – Circa’s two-story casino will feature 1,350 slot machines and 49 table games.
  • Vegas Vickie Returns – Las Vegas’ beloved neon kicking cowgirl, Vegas Vickie, will make her highly anticipated return to Downtown Las Vegas as a must-see feature in the resort’s lobby. A Las Vegas landmark, Vegas Vickie first appeared on the dazzling Downtown landscape in 1980 and made headlines across the globe in 1994 when she married her neon counterpart, Vegas Vic. Fans thought Vegas Vickie was riding off into the sunset forever when Stevens removed her to make way for Circa’s construction, but after a fresh makeover, she’s back in action at the resort.
  • Garage Mahal – The first fully integrated ride-share hub conceived for a new gaming resort, Garage Mahal’s high-tech design and thoughtful features will make it the most convenient parking and transportation venue in the city, with a focus on an elevated level of service and safety. Clean and well-lit, Garage Mahal will spotlight stunning art installations throughout its nine floors. Uber and Lyft passengers will enjoy a seamless experience on the first floor, with easy access for valet and self-parking on additional floors, and a quick in-and-out format for drivers. An air-conditioned bridge over Main Street will connect Garage Mahal to Circa Resort & Casino.

Pan-Asian eatery 8 East from Downtown Las Vegas’ Chef Dan Coughlin will open in December 2020.

 

Paying homage to Las Vegas’ vibrant history, Circa will be a modern casino experience founded on the original principles of old-school hospitality. Fusing the glamour of vintage Vegas with modern luxuries and cutting-edge technology, guests can expect top-notch entertainment while enjoying honest, attentive and friendly service.

“The American dream of entrepreneurship is still alive,” says Karl Workman, owner and founder, Barbell Apparel. “For nearly 10 years, we’ve been on a journey filled with highs and lows. Most recently the challenges of 2020 had us questioning if our doors were ever going to open. Now that we have, I am thrilled to bring this product to the people of my own community.”

Designed for athletes, Las Vegas-based Barbell Apparel set out to create a new line of American-made, premium athletic denim that would not only fit muscular body types, but also be able to move and keep up with them. From denim to chinos and athleisure to workout wear, today the brand is a highly-successful fashion line, featuring partnerships with athletes such as 2019 World’s Strongest Man, Martins Lici.

The team brought a new vision to an already overly competitive market and in doing so found a place among an underserviced niche. Founded by a group of friends and athletes, they launched their first product, an Athletic Fit Jeans, on Kickstarter in 2014. This campaign went on to be the second most funded fashion project of all time.

The 16 units are the first of 63 apartments that will be available at shareDOWNTOWN for lease. Twelve-month leases offer rents starting at $1,100 that include all utilities except cable and high-speed internet. Six-month leases are also available.

The nearly 500 square-foot apartments have a single floor plan, with most units offering city or mountain views and Juliette balconies or interior open-air courtyard patios. Every unit features modern design elements, such as European cabinetry, wood plank-style flooring, quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, including an electric cooktop and a smart all-in-one washer and dryer. shareDOWNTOWN residents have peace-of-mind with enhanced security, including keyless front door locks, key fob main entry, fully secured garage and remotely monitored cameras.

FOUNDER OF LIP SMACKING FOODIE TOURS TO LAUNCH SELF-GUIDED PRIVATE TOUR WITH NEW SISTER COMPANY, JUNE 1

New Private Tours Perfect for Couples, Family Members

 Beginning June 1, food lovers will be able to eat and explore their way through Downtown Las Vegas like never before with a private, self-guided, e-assisted culinary tour created by Finger Licking Foodie Tours. The brand-new company represents a follow-up, companion business to the successful Lip Smacking Foodie Tours created by Las Vegas entrepreneur and hospitality-industry veteran, Donald Contursi.

The new self-guided Finger Licking Foodie Tour offers guests a fun and innovative way to support three top restaurants in the Las Vegas community, while enjoying an array of Instagrammable dishes in one outing. Each tour requires a minimum of just two patrons, so guests can safely dine with their closest family and loved ones.

With restaurant capacities limited due to public health restrictions and reservations at the hottest restaurants challenging, Finger Licking Foodie Tours provide immediate VIP seating with signature dishes served fresh, shortly after arrival. Tours are “led” by a virtual tour guide who provides a map of the route, interesting tidbits along the way and a guided walk through Downtown Container Park to support local small businesses.

“This tour provides an intimate and personalized foodie experience,” explains Contursi. “Guests receive an online map, as well as a link to an innovative virtual tour guide who provides commentary for each fascinating stop along the way including a walk through Downtown Container Park to support small businesses. On this 2.5-hour experience in the city’s exciting, revitalized downtown, guests will visit three acclaimed restaurants, enjoying superb service and three unforgettable dishes at each venue.”

Contursi founded Lip Smacking Foodie Tours five years ago to offer gourmet walking tours featuring prime-time dining and VIP service at the most exclusive restaurants. After quickly accumulating numerous accolades and repeat customers, he expanded on the concept with Finger Licking Foodie Tours, which was established in 2019 to provide a casual romp at affordable prices.

In addition to the self-guided tour, Finger Licking Foodie Tours offers two guided group tours: The Las Vegas Strip Foodie Tour provides a 2.5-hour afternoon experience leaving plenty of time for a night out on the town afterward. Guests visit four exciting stops on each tour, which combines sensational sight-seeing with craveable dishes. Each tour’s itinerary remains under wraps for maximum anticipation and surprise. Knowledgeable and charismatic local guides keep the atmosphere lively by spotlighting some of the most distinctive sights and fascinating facts along the way. Guests who opt for the Downtown Las Vegas Foodie Tour enjoy the same benefits while visiting four neighborhood restaurants run by local chefs who have made a name for themselves in the dynamic, art-filled, revitalized downtown.

Finger Licking Foodie Tours start at the accessible price point of just $79 per person and includes three restaurants and three dishes at every stop. Gratuity is included for each restaurant. Additionally, a 15 percent discount is offered to guests on beverages and additional menu items. Each tour is designed for singles, couples and groups of friends or families.
