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.

World’s Largest Single Video Screen Illuminates Fremont Street Experience with Fully Immersive Content

WORLD’S LARGEST SINGLE VIDEO SCREEN ILLUMINATES
FREMONT STREET EXPERIENCE WITH FULLY IMMERSIVE CONTENT

 

 

Following the highly-anticipated debut of the $32 million upgrade of Viva Vision, Fremont Street Experience continues to illuminate the pedestrian mall with a collection of all-new groundbreaking visuals and mind-blowing 3D graphics created exclusively for the world’s largest single video screen.

 

Utilizing Watchfire Signs’ cutting-edge LED screen technology, Contend developed multiple, multi-sensory themed vignettes to activate and bring to life the awe inspiring screen, including the groundbreaking signature show concept, “MIXology.” Inspired by “synesthesia,” a perceptual phenomenon where music, art and emotion collide to create an immersive experience, “MIXology” was designed to exploit 49.3 million LEDs alongside a state-of-the-art, 600,000-watt, concert-quality surround sound system and take visitors on an visual and sensorial journey in downtown Las Vegas.

 

“MIXology” incorporates an EDM-based music mash featuring iconic songs across multiple decades and genres of music that inspire the multi-generational masses culminating with an epic audience participation sing-along led by Fremont Street Experience’s world-class house bands.

 

A sampling of the vignettes created for the enhanced Viva Vision canopy include:

 

  • Mothership – Set to a majestic celestial backdrop, Fremont Street Experience is transformed into an out of this world adventure filled with wonders of deep space, a bustling space station and action-packed space battles.

 

  • Fluid Lucidity – With 10 different iterations, Fluid Lucidity is a series of mind bending abstract visual spectacles that bend the limits of the imagination on a grand scale.

 

  • Air Show – Set to a beautiful and dramatic skyscape, Viva Vision canopy plays host to several stunning, immense and breathtaking aerial spectacles during the day and night.

 

  • Garden of Eden – Visitors can step into a magical and mesmerizing alien jungle teeming with flora and fauna unlike any other.

“A lot of people talk about immersive experiences, but when you have a system like Fremont’s, that completely eclipses your perception (without using VR goggles), you can actually deliver on that promise in a profound way. ‘MIXology’ does just that.” said Bill Wadsworth, Head of Immersive Experience at Contend. “The Fremont A/V setup is so unusual (and awesome), we needed to do extensive research before we felt qualified to take full advantage of that system. The canopy screen is so massive, it’s like a weather phenomenon. The surround sound system is powerful enough to pop your eyeballs out. When you combine the best of both and add live bands and DJs playing along, you literally have something unique. No matter where you stand on the six blocks, your experience is different every single show.”

 

With the new upgrades, the screen can be seen 24 hours a day for the first time in its existence. In addition to the new shows, guests can also enjoy six-minute light shows that run every hour from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Viva Vision light shows feature music from The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Linkin Park and others.

 

In partnership with the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Conventions and Visitors Authority, the $32 million renovation to the iconic Viva Vision screen illuminates downtown Las Vegas with 16.4 million pixels and 5,000 Nits, making it up to seven times brighter than the existing canopy with four times the resolution.

A highlight of the innovative content is the multi-sensory signature show, “MIXology.” The groundbreaking show concept was inspired by “synesthesia,” a perceptual phenomenon where music, art and emotion collide to create an immersive, multi-sensory experience on a grand scale.

 

“We had to get very creative when developing a product that would meet all the distinctive needs for Viva Vision and the success of this project is proof of what Watchfire stands for,” said Steve Harriott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Watchfire Signs.

 

“Fremont Street Experience and the Viva Vision canopy are totally unique in this world. The scale, the screen, the audio and the overall environment make this a world class destination that deserves to be at the top of every list of must-see Vegas experiences,” said Bill Wadsworth, Head of Immersive Experience of Contend.

 

Spanning five city blocks above one of the most vibrant streets in Las Vegas, the revitalized canopy will illuminate the pedestrian mall with 16,433,152 pixels and 5,000 Nits, making it seven times brighter than the existing canopy with four times the resolution allowing the screen to be seen 24 hours a day for the first time in its existence.

 

“The role that Fremont Street Experience plays in Las Vegas’ entertainment landscape is undeniable,” said Derek Stevens, CEO of the D Las Vegas, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino and the upcoming Circa Resort & Casino. “As we get ready for a thrilling 2020, we are excited about the upgraded Viva Vision and the incredible new experience it will deliver to the millions of guests that visit each year. It is something you truly will have to see to believe.”

 

In partnership with the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Conventions and Visitors Authority, Fremont Street Experience will host the official unveiling of the $32 million renovation of Viva Vision on Dec. 31, 2019 during America’s Party Downtown presented by iHeart Media Las Vegas.

FREMONT STREET EXPERIENCE TO BEGIN $32 MILLION RENOVATION OF THE
ICONIC VIVA VISION CANOPY IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS, FEB. 2019

 

Fremont Street Experience will begin its $32 million renovation of Viva Vision, the world’s largest single video screen located in historic downtown Las Vegas, February 2019. Spanning five city blocks above one of the most vibrant streets in Las Vegas, the upgraded Viva Vision canopy will illuminate the pedestrian mall with 16,433,152 pixels and 5,000 Nits, making it seven-times brighter than the existing canopy with four-times the resolution. In partnership with the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Conventions and Visitors Authority, renovations to the iconic, city-owned Viva Vision canopy will be completed for the unveiling on Dec. 31, 2019.

 

“The redevelopment of the iconic Viva Vision canopy is a major milestone for Fremont Street Experience and the City of Las Vegas,” said Patrick Hughes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fremont Street Experience. “With Fremont Street Experience attracting more than 23 million visitors a year, we’re really looking forward to seeing the new energy this brings to downtown Las Vegas and the positive impact it will have on the entire community.”

 

Boasting 12.5 million lights alongside a state-of-the-art, 550,000-watt, concert-quality sound system, visitors will soon enjoy dazzling, high-resolution light and sound shows 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A collaboration between Fremont Street Experience, Tré Builders and Watchfire Signs, an Illinois-based LED manufacturer, the revitalized Viva Vision canopy will feature new digital content as well as interactive elements such as The Key, an app that will enable visitors to write personalized messages on Viva Vision and vote for the next song or video.

 

“Watchfire is committed to exceeding expectation at every level and we’re thrilled to be part of the historical redevelopment of Viva Vision in downtown Las Vegas,” said Steve Harriott, CEO of Watchfire Signs.

 

Viva Vision by the Numbers

  • $32,000,000: Cost of the Viva Vision renovations
  • 16,433,152: Pixels used to generate four-times the resolution of the existing canopy
  • 49,000,000: Energy-efficient LEDs distributed throughout Viva Vision
  • 5,000: Nits used to make it seven-times brighter than the existing canopy
  • 1,367: Length of the Viva Vision canopy
