Downtown Las Vegas has been rapidly improving over the years. Several new properties are currently being constructed here, perhaps none of which are as exciting as the Circa Casino-Resort. According to new reports, the pool at Circa Las Vegas will officially open to the public in October.
This city has been slowly reopening. Several of the biggest gambling venues here are now accepting guests once again. Today, we’re going to look at what the owners of the Circa Hotel have planned for the future.
Let’s get into it!
Casinos in Downtown Las Vegas Are Reopening
People around the country have been hugely interested to see how the city of Las Vegas responds to this global pandemic. For months, all of the casino-resorts here were closed to the public. This resulted in an unprecedented amount of job loss and millions of dollars in lost revenue.
Lawmakers in the state realized things couldn’t remain the way they were. If things didn’t change, the city might not have ever recovered. Fortunately, Governor Sisolak gave these casinos permission to reopen on June 4th.
As long as they implement safety measures, the casinos in this state can open back up. Today, some of the biggest and best gaming venues are now operating again. That includes the New York-New York, the Bellagio, and the Venetian Casino-Resort.
Some of the top casinos in Downtown Las Vegas have started to accept guests, as well. The Golden Nugget and Orleans are now operating with reduced occupancy. Since June 4th, tourism in this city has gradually increased.
There are several new properties in this city that both residents and tourists are excited about. The Circa Casino-Resort, in particular, has been generating serious interest. The owners of this property now claim that some of the amenities here will begin opening back up soon.
Derek Stevens Gives Update on the Pool at Circa Las Vegas
The Circa Casino and Resort is the first major hotel-casino built in downtown Las Vegas for decades. It’s owned by the Stevens brothers, who already control several major gaming venues in the state. Derek Stevens recently spoke to the media about how this project is coming together.
According to Derek, this property will open a little earlier than expected. The basement and first five floors of this casino-resort will reopen to the public on October 28th. To the surprise of many, the pool at Circa Las Vegas is opening up in October, as well.
As many know, the pool here is one of the largest in the entire city. Derek Stevens wanted to make this one of the most exciting new properties in the city. A resort-style pool, he feels, will help to boost tourism in the Downtown area.
Opening back up hasn’t been easy. He spoke about this with USA Today this week.
“We took the hand that was dealt us and tried to work as efficient as possible,” Stevens said.
As of now, the plan is for much of this property to reopen in October. It’s still not entirely clear how things will look. Will social distancing measures be required at the pool at Circa Las Vegas? Are employees going to need to wear masks? That all remains to be seen.
Las Vegas isn’t the same that it was a few months ago. Casino owners are doing their best to bring life back to the city, though. We’ll continue to offer updates on Circa over the next few weeks.
New Jersey Prepares to Reopen its Casino Industry
Las Vegas remains the world’s top gambling destination. Many new casino-resorts are scheduled to open here over the next few years. Now that the casinos have reopened, revenue in the city is starting to trickle back in.
Not every city has been as quick to get back to normal. In Atlantic City, the casinos remain shut down to the public. This has resulted in tens of thousands of job losses and some feel this city may never look the same.
State officials here are doing everything they can to help Atlantic City’s economy. Not long ago, the NJ State Senate approved a bill to help the casinos here. This bill also allocates a huge amount of money to help small businesses affected by the regulations here.
The current plan is for the casinos in this city to reopen by the Fourth of July. Obviously, everyone in this city is excited to see this happen. Many feel tourism will quickly surge here once the gaming venues are opened back up.
Casino industries around the country are finally starting to reopen. Some are earning more money than others. We’ll need to wait and see how long it takes for things in Atlantic City to get back to normal.
