LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The first resort built from the ground up since 1980 in downtown Las Vegas hosted a black-tie, VIP event in the hours leading up to the big public grand opening.
Circa Resort & Casino hosted hundreds of people to show off the property built by owner Derek Stevens.
"This project is clearly my largest project that my brother and I have been involved with and I think it’s even more special with what’s happening in 2020 and we’re in a community that needs jobs," said Derek Stevens, owner of Circa, Golden Gate, and The D Hotel and Casino.
The property showcases the largest sportsbook in the world with screens that tower three stories high and room for 1,000 guests.
The resort has the longest bar in Nevada which measures 165 feet in length and features 47 double stacked TVs.
The hotel's heated pool has a 14 million megapixel screen, and space to accommodate 4,000 guests.
The hotel also has 777 rooms which are set to open in time for New Year's Eve.
