Downtown Las Vegas hotspot the D Las Vegas will up the ante with the reveal of its original bar concept, BarCanada, an ode to Canadian sports and culture. Debuting this March, the hockey-inspired tavern will merge modern design, specialty cocktails and an intimate game-day viewing space as part of the hotel’s second-level expansion project.
Additionally, the D will refresh its 9,000-square-foot second floor casino, with the renovation adding 800 square feet to its current sportsbook, Circa Sports; all-new Keno and high-limit slot areas; and new programming from VSiN, The Sports Betting Network.
“There’s no denying that Las Vegas has transformed into a sports destination, and the D’s casino and sportsbook expansion is a direct response to that growth,” said Derek Stevens, CEO of the D Las Vegas. “As a hockey fan, I know where you watch a game can be just as important as the game itself. We are excited to debut a high-energy space where locals and visitors alike will want to grab a drink, place a bet and cheer for their favorite teams.”
BarCanada also will bring on-site programming by VSiN, where their team of experts will provide sports betting analysis and live insights. A proud partner of the D, VSiN currently broadcasts live from the hotel’s sports hub LONGBAR, and will house a studio within the sportsbook at Stevens’ upcoming casino-resort project, Circa Resort & Casino.
Brian Musburger, CEO of VSiN, said, “We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Derek and the D. Everyone loves VSiN’s hits from LONGBAR, but as we continue to bring our unique sports betting content to a rapidly growing audience, it will be amazing to broadcast our expanded programming from this exciting venue at the center of Downtown.”
