The coronavirus has not affected the expansion in Las Vegas and the entire Sothern California from expanding safely. Not only does it have new eateries mushrooming all over town but also a new casino downtown, and new names are apparent on the doors of Palm Springs and Sin City.
Circa Resort & Casino is a new 25-million-square-foot gaming operation and the first resort casino in Las Vegas. The downtown high-tech project is the adults-only property and pays respect to Sin City’s vintage Golden Era.
Derek Stevens, the developer cum CEO of Circa Sports, is going full-on with bars and restaurants, a two-story casino of 8000 square feet, plus a parking structure – Garage Mahal, with ridesharing. Its site also boasts of the largest sportsbook globally, though Circa Sports remains to be the resort’s centerpiece with a high-definition, 78-million-pixel, video screen displaying 19 sporting events at a time. The stadium-style, the three-story venue can accommodate 1000 viewers. Guests enjoy the luxury of booking lavish accommodations like reclining seats or booths with Wi-Fi and power outlets. The Sports Betting Network maintains an on-site studio inside the sportsbook. The country’s largest swimming pool, Stadium Swim, is a great destination for sports lovers and, its six pools are temperature-regulated, are open all year round. It also includes two swim-up bars, with a 14-million-megapixel and 143-by-40-foot LED screen. The amphitheater showcases the biggest events and games of the day and hosts Vegas Vickie in the Circa Hotel lobby. The 25-foot art piece appeared in Fremont Street Experience in 1980 that keeps her kicking leg active. The Circa hotel tower with 777 rooms will open to the public on December 28.
The previously known Hard Rock Hotel will now open on January 15, 2021, as the new Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The new blueprint includes 1,500 hotel rooms along with suites across three towers. It will harbor a dozen outlets of food and beverage, including MB Steak, Nobu, and Todd English’s Olives. Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment will manage the fully refurbished, 60,000-square-foot casino first tribal gaming group operated Vegas tourism property. The fun does not end here. The overhead light shows, which were for free at Freemont Street Experience, have been upgraded with a $32-million Viva Vision screen at 90 feet width, 1,375 feet height, and stands 90 feet overhead of the Freemont Street pedestrian mall, with 49.3 million LED lamps and 16.4 million pixels.
