Circa Resort & Casino is a casino and planned hotel in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, on the Fremont Street Experience. The property was previously occupied by the Las Vegas Club hotel-casino, the Mermaids Casino, and the Glitter Gulch strip club. Circa is owned by brothers Derek and Greg Stevens, who also own other downtown casinos. They purchased the Las Vegas Club in 2015, followed by the acquisition of Mermaids and Glitter Gulch. The three businesses were demolished in 2017, and construction on Circa began in February 2019, with a grand opening in October 2020.
This resort has a two-story casino, a three-story sportsbook, five restaurants, and a six-tiered swimming pool area. The hotel has 512 rooms.
Circa two-story casino, is spread 7,000 sq area. It comes with 1,350 pokies machines and 49 table games. Circa will heavily focus on sports betting. Its three-story, stadium-style sportsbook was planned as the biggest in Las Vegas and is a prime aspect of the resort, unlike other newer resorts in Las Vegas that place less emphasis on sportsbooks. Circa’s sportsbook has seating for 1,000 people, and it allows sharp bettors. It includes a three-story, high-definition television screen, built at a cost of approximately $20 million. Up to 10 people are required to operate the screen.
Circa sportsbook would be the largest in the world, beating out the 30,000 sq ft (2,800 m2) SuperBook at the Westgate Las Vegas. The sportsbook include a broadcasting studio for the Vegas Stats & Information Network and Circa is expected to become the center of sports wagering in downtown Las Vegas.

Circa’s One loyalty club just introduced tiers, and one of them is Maverick. It’s worth noting two of the tiers get free self-parking. Circa does not validate as The D and Golden Gate do. Parking in Garage Mahal is $4 an hour, with a $15 daily max. (Note: Parking is $5 at Plaza next door.) Circa is a dream made real, and you’re going to absolutely love it. Making a plan to visit. Wow that’s wonderful.
