The multi-level casino and amphitheater pool of the first downtown resort built in decades are opening ahead of schedule.
On Wednesday, downtown Las Vegas casino mogul Derek Stevens unveiled an opening date for a portion of the 777-room Circa Resort and Casino.
The basement and first five floors of the new resort will open on Oct. 28.
Hotel rooms will remain closed
While the casino, pool, parking garage and several restaurants will open, hotel rooms will not be available until a later date.
Stevens previously planned to launch the whole Circa package in December, but social distancing requirements on the construction site in the wake of COVID-19 forced him to change the timeline.
Restrictions on the number of people allowed in man lifts limited the number of workers allowed on upper floors of the hotel tower. Stevens worked with construction contractors to focus on the first five floors and push for an early opening.
“We took the hand that was dealt us and tried to work as efficient as possible," Stevens told the USA TODAY Network.
Here's a look at what will open come Oct. 28:
The multi-tiered pool amphitheater is temperature-controlled and includes a 134-by-41-foot video screen.
Stevens is pitching the aquatic center a “destination pool” – a spot that will be at the top of tourist’s lists when they roll through Sin City.
By the numbers: Circa's pool
38: day beds
337: chaise lounges
4,000: the number of people the resort expects to visit the pool every day.
Two-story casino and sportsbook
Circa’s two-story casino will feature 1,350 slot machines, 49 table games and what Stevens is touting as the world's largest sportsbook.
With a seating capacity of 1,000 guests, the stadium-style sportsbook includes a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen viewable throughout Circa’s two-story casino.
The third floor will have a broadcast studio for Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN) to offer bettors daily analysis daily from broadcasters, athletes and industry pros.
