Yep, We Paid a Visit to Circa

A long escalator ride brings visitors (who paid $10) to Circa’s roof-top pool area, complete with videos, loud music and swim-up bars.

I knew enough when I visited Las Vegas’s newest casino not to talk over a video. The throbbing rock music that is everywhere, starting with the Fremont Street Experience, makes a voice-over almost impossible. So I took my videos and talked later. I toured the new five-story building that dared to open in the middle of a pandemic, and I had reactions. I commend owners Derek and Greg Stevens for their courage.

Circa boasts of a three-story sports book, an adults-only vibe, six all-year swimming pools with two swim-up bars, a bridge from its across-the-street “Garage Mahal” parking area and a $20 million sports screen. Its 24-hour coffee shop is called “Jack Pots” (clever name) and now and then in Saginaw’s Deli, we’re told, the 99-cent shrimp cocktail will make a temporary appearance.

Even with all that, to me (a certified old person) the music was overwhelming. Fortunately, Steve Wynn and others have presented another Las Vegas, the one where casino owners take my money with soft music thrown in.

My video below is just a brief introduction. I suppose visitors must see for themselves. Note: Guys wanting to pick up girls at Circa will have to shout.

Yes, Circa is new and clean and the owners have spent millions on everything. The place is lively, has a 1000-seat sports book and the Lego shop puts Circa retail on the map.

But…until owners Derek and Greg Stevens discover Frank Sinatra, my money will go elsewhere.

  1. Thank you for the video tour of Circa. I’m pretty sure the music would be distracting for me, but, it looks like a “hip” place.

  2. Wonderful tour! Thank you, Diane, for your insightful coverage. Since loud venues are not my cup of tea, now I don’t have to risk the assault on my eardrums to personally check out this attractive new casino — you did that so wonderfully for your audience. You probably couldn’t hear if any of those new casino floor machines were paying?
