New casino in downtown Las Vegas expected to open in 2020

By Matthew Enderby

The first casino-resort to be built in downtown Las Vegas from the ground up in more than 30 years is expected to open its doors in December 2020.

Circa Resort has announced plans which include a boldly designed property that will honour the city’s vibrant history, while also providing modern facilities.

The casino-resort will feature a three-level, stadium-style sportsbook, a pool amphitheatre featuring a massive screen and a two-level casino.

Circa’s hotel tower will be the tallest building north of the Las Vegas strip and have 777 rooms.

The famous neon sign, Vegas Vickie, a high-kicking cowgirl in a white outfit, will be installed in the resort’s lobby.  

Speaking with the Associated Press, Co-Owner Derek Stevens said: "We are going to offer things to do with a lot of fun and excitement, no matter what your age is. We are certainly going to have a bit of a focus on sports, water, sun and it’s all themed around fun and high energy.

Stevens and his brother Greg own the D and Golden Gate casino-hotels in Las Vegas.
