Circa, the 1.25-million-square-foot, Strip-style downtown adults-only (21 and over) megaresort opened as promised on Oct. 28, with a four-block line of guests greeted by Vegas Vickie in the lobby. The resort features what’s being touted as the “world’s largest sports book,” a “pool amphitheater” that features its own giant screen for airing sports, and several restaurants and bars, including the longest bar in Las Vegas on the main floor. Almost overlooked among the amenities is the giant Garage Mahal, with just under 1,000 parking spaces. With just a few exceptions, nearly the entire resort is complete and open to the public. Circa is the first casino built downtown from the ground up in 40 years.
99¢ shrimp: Circa is serving the famous Golden Gate shrimp cocktail in Saginaw’s Deli for 99¢. But don’t get too excited — the deal is offered only from 3 to 5 a.m. daily. It’s $11 at all other times.
Tickets in twos: Here’s an unforeseen entertainment consequence of the pandemic: Many of the shows that have opened are now requiring the purchase of an even number of tickets with a minimum of two to attend. The policy is designed to allow the maximum number of guests, which is important with the reduced-seating rules.
Resorts World restaurants: The roster of restaurants planned for Resorts World Las Vegas has been released. It includes Prince’s Hot Chicken from Nashville, Jeh O Chula (Thai), Parm (Italian), Fuhu Duck (Asian) and Houston’s Blood Bros. Barbecue. Also planned is an urban food hall. Available fast food will include chicken and rice, clay-pot dishes, yakitori, sushi, shave ice, Malaysian flatbread and noodles, bao and dumplings. The Strip resort is scheduled to open in the summer of 2021.
Question: Can points earned at the D and Golden Gate be used at Circa?
Answer: Yes. All three casinos use “the ONE” card. Points can be earned and redeemed interchangeably at any of the three casinos.
