Circa, Las Vegas’ Newest Resort & Casino, Aims to Have the Greatest Pool in the World

Rectangle Pool, Two Palm Trees, Beige UmbrellasFremont Street’s exciting new Circa Resort & Casino is slated for a 2020 opening, but will it have the world’s greatest new pool, too?

Casino developer Derek Stevens introduced his latest casino project, Circa Resort & Casino, in January of 2019. After several years of purchases, Stevens now owns and operates The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate casinos. Circa will be his third downtown Las Vegas property when it opens in December 2020 in downtown Las Vegas.

Circa Resort & Casino is his biggest project to date, by a long shot. Here are his plans for the innovative and massive multilevel pool deck amphitheater:

 “We’re trying to build what I would consider to be the greatest pool in the history of the world. Hopefully it’s something that adds into the Vegas allure to bring more people.”

A “Destination” Pool

The heart of Steven’s pitch is the proposed multi-tiered pool amphitheater, that includes six separate pools and a 134-by-41-foot video screen that will allow for a variety of customized experiences. The massive screen will create an enticing watch-party atmosphere for sports fans.

“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.”

What makes the pool so different than any other pool not only in Las Vegas, but the world, is the temperature control system that will allow the pool area to remain open 365 days a year. Other Las Vegas Resort & Casino pools close down during the winter, which would effectively remove any competition for Circa in that respect.

Steven is referring to the aquatic center as a “destination pool,” as he predicts it will top tourist’s destination lists of must-see places when they visit Sin City. They expect to host 4,000 people a day at the multilevel pool.

Other Winning Features to Set Circa Apart

Circa Resort & Casino will be the tallest building north of the Vegas Strip. The property will be unlike any other in downtown Las Vegas. The innovative pool and sportsbook will make the property a destination instead of a property visited just because it’s in a mall of casinos.

Other plans for Circa are massive. There will be 1.25 million square feet of amenities including:

  • A three-level sportsbook with the world’s sportsbook video screen and broadcast studios
  • A rejuvenating Spa
  • Casino on two floors
  • 777 hotel rooms and suites
  • 9-story parking garage for guests
  • Numerous restaurants

Another difference between Circa and other “new” Las Vegas casinos is that this is a completely new construction project. Park MGM is the newest casino in Las Vegas. It’s the updated version of the Monte Carlo, which announced its exit from the Las Vegas Strip in 2016. Circa will be the first new casino actually built from the ground up in Downtown Las Vegas since 1980.

And Stevens does a great job of combining classic Las Vegas service with modern amenities. Circa should be the pinnacle of this experience with great dining, gambling, drinking, a spa, and hotel rooms:

“There is a lot of unmet demand for fun in Las Vegas,” said Stevens. “At Circa, our goal is to create a destination resort in a historic part of the city, while showing guests the time of their lives. We plan to double down on the world-class service Las Vegas has always been known for while bringing personalized experiences to a new level.”

Summer in Las Vegas: Get Ready for Pool Parties

Summer is the time of the year to be in Las Vegas, as there are plenty of things to do and create memories of a lifetime. The best thing about this place is that it offers something for everyone. People who want to party and enjoy the nightlife filled with clubs, casinos, concerts, and other types of entertainment will definitely enjoy the loud side of the city, but it also offers a quite side for those seeking peace and tranquility to rest from their every-day life.

Poolside Parties

Some of the resorts, such as Aria Resort & Casino, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, and The Mirage, will have plenty to offer, including wild pool parties that will feature some of the leading DJs nowadays such as Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Zedd, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, and many more. If you are the type of person that loves dancing in a pool and drinking cocktails by the bar, these places are definitely worth checking out during the summer. Once you get tired from all the parties, you will find plenty of other ways to have fun, including visiting the casino, eating at restaurants, and more.

Las Vegas pool parties

If you like dancing in nightclubs, you are definitely going to enjoy at Marquee Night & Day Club which is located at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The officials of this venue have announced a great summer season which will also include pool parties and best recording artists in the world. People who want to soak up some Sun can do that at the dipping pools are one of the two pools that are a part of the aquatic adult playground.

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is also offering top-notch entertainment for the summer, especially for the pool-goers who can enjoy at the Daylight Beach Club in this facility. They always push the daylight entertainment one step further, offering open-air parties with huge VIP stage tables and cabanas. Great performances, great cuisine, and cool cocktails are all it takes to enjoy your stay at Mandalay Bay.

We should not leave out Flamingo Las Vegas, which has 14 cabanas and a lot of daybeds at their GO Pool that will host a number of popular performers. They planned a lot of country concerts, with many musicians who will perform by the pool for people who like this genre of music. Furthermore, they plan on introducing daily themes which should provide additional entertainment for all the visitors.

If you prefer to relax rather than party, you can do that at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, which includes eight poolside cabanas where you can enjoy the Sun and enjoy your drinks. This place is simply perfect for all the people who do not plan to visit parties by the pool that have loud music and a lot of people.

Finally, we should not leave out The Venetian Las Vegas, which has planned parties that will hype you up and maximize your energy levels with all-star DJs and themed events that will happen during the summer season. Their luxurious cabanas and daybeds inspired by Asian culture will make you feel welcome and ready to party.


As you can see, there are a lot of pool parties planned for the summer ahead of us, with all kinds of music available. Furthermore, people who seek to just lay there on the Sun and enjoy cold drinks will also have an opportunity to do that at some pools. Therefore, start planning your summer Vegas trip, as it is going to be lots of fun!
