For the past year, construction has been taking place on a brand new hotel-casino located in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s one of the most highly-anticipated venues on the Fremont Street Experience in recent memory and is expected to become hugely popular. This week, Circa Las Vegas announced several new restaurants that are set to open up this year.
Las Vegas is known for its incredible restaurants. Recently, many of these world-class eateries have begun opening up in the Downtown area. Now is the perfect time to look at what to expect from the newest major casino-resort opening here.
Downtown Las Vegas is Beginning to Transform
Opinions are torn on the Downtown area of Las Vegas. Some claim that this part of the city is more authentic and affordable than the Strip area. Others claim it’s rundown and doesn’t offer the same level of entertainment that the Strip does. There may be some validity to both of those statements.
In recent years, Downtown Las Vegas has begun to transform and more visitors to the city are choosing to head over to this area. Over the past decade alone, several new hotel-casinos have opened here and some major renovations have taken place to the venues.
Several major casino operators realize the potential in Downtown Las Vegas. Back in August of 2015, Derek and Greg Stevens began planning a massive new casino-resort on Fremont Street. It was eventually named Circa Las Vegas and was scheduled to open in December of 2020.
Construction on this project began in early 2019. Since that time, more and more details of the property have been released. This week, the owners revealed several new additions to the new hotel-casino.
Based on what’s being said, this will be one of the best venues in Downtown Las Vegas to date. Here’s what has just been announced.
Several New Restaurants Are Coming to Circa Las Vegas
Nowadays, many people visit Las Vegas simply for the different culinary options. There are a host of fantastic restaurants in this city, more of which are beginning to open on Fremont Street. Derek Stevens recently told the media about five incredible new restaurants that are opening up inside this hotel-casino.
“While each owner brings a diverse background to Circa, they are united by the common thread of having a passion for customer service and the Downtown Las Vegas community,” Stevens told the media. “In addition to incredible food, they will all deliver that spirit of fun and community that is integral to the Circa experience.”
Here’s are some of the restaurants coming to Circa Las Vegas.
- Saginaw’s Delicatessen, a deli-style restaurant by Paul Saginaw.
- Barry’s Downtown Prime, a steakhouse being developed by Chef Barry S. Dakake.
- Victory Burger & Wings Co., this will be Circa’s main sports bar developed by the owners of American Coney Island.
- 8 East, a pan-Asian restaurant from chef Dan Coughlin.
- Project BBQ, the first permanent food truck at Circa Las Vegas featuring Carolina barbecue options.
It’s clear that the Stevens brothers are focused on making this resort a food haven. Each of the restaurants opening here is expected to be fantastic.
Circa’s Pool Will Be the Best in Las Vegas
The food scene at Circa Las Vegas is incredible. That’s not the only thing people are talking about right now, though. Derek Stevens claims that this casino-resort will feature the best swimming pool in Las Vegas.
According to the CEO, it will be a multi-level pool amphitheater featuring a massive 134 by 41-foot video screen. Hotel developers are calling it a “destination pool.” The goal is to attract visitors from around the country solely to spend time in this luxurious swimming area.
“This is going to be a great venue to watch sports, a great place to catch sun, a great place to listen to music,” Stevens said, “and a great place for product launches. We expect to be able to do 4,000 people a day.”
30 cabanas, 38 day beds, and 337 chaise lounges are opening at the hotel’s pool. We’re expected to see some pictures of this area in a few months.
Downtown Las Vegas is improving rapidly. Circa Las Vegas is expected to be the crown jewel in this part of the city. Stay tuned for more updates on the hotel-casino over the next few months!
