When it’s game day and you are thirsting for live action, head to Downtown Las Vegas where there are hundreds of screens, spicy wings and frothy beers to keep you well satiated through three periods of grinding action. The toughest part for a pumped-up sports fan is where to spend those precious hours. Lucky for the die-hards and weekend warriors alike, Circa Las Vegas lives, breathes, sleeps, eats and drinks the sports lifestyle. Here are five extraordinary viewing experiences to book for the next time the puck drops.
Pregame or Game in the Room
Get a room … and watch the game? In Las Vegas, staying in the hotel room is downright counterintuitive to the ethos of the city, but the view from the king accommodations at Circa are arguably the best seats in the house for a private game-viewing experience. These rooms offer a panoramic bird’s-eye view of the gigantic screens at Stadium Swim. Or use the room as a pregame party spot to meet up and gear up with fellow fans. Pro tip: The illuminated full-length mirrors are perfect for snapping selfies in the latest jersey.
Live the Cabana Dream at Stadium Swim
Get a cabana … and watch the game? Not even in Vegas do you normally head to the pool for game viewing—but at Circa, it’s expected. Catch major televised events broadcast on the 14-million-pixel screen, which is 143 feet wide by 40 feet tall, presiding over six temperature-controlled pools and two spas. Super Cabanas, which are perfect for big groups, can host up to 50 guests. Located on Circa’s fifth floor, Stadium Swim also features its own delicious food and beverage menu. Dig into an Impossible burger slider trio made with herb aioli and caramelized onions on toasted slider buns. Whiskey drinkers favor the Full Circa with Toki Japanese Whiskey, White Peach Syrup and Ripe Lemon Sour. Vodka drinkers love the White Strawberry Lemonade with Skyy Strawberry, Elderflower Liqueur, Lemon Sour and Strawberry Slices.
Want to enjoy Stadium Swim but prefer the open air? Now through May 8, book the VGK Watch Party package, which includes free entry at Stadium Swim to view the game, two reserved VIP lounge chairs and a bucket of beer for $100.
Belly Up to the Mega Bar
Count the televisions … and watch the game? That would be 46 double-stacked screens to be exact. Mega Bar, the longest bar in Nevada, is 165 feet of imbibing pleasure located on Circa’s main floor. This is the home of Downtown’s famous flair bartenders. With 53 seats and bar-top gaming, there’s plenty of ways to stay engaged while watching your team win. Enjoy cocktails like the Blue Hawaiian or one of the 120 beers on tap.
Grab a table … and watch the game? A three-story, stadium-style sportsbook is the centerpiece of Circa Las Vegas, and it boasts a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen viewable throughout the resort’s two-story casino with a capacity to host up to 1,000 guests. Featuring a broadcast studio for Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN), Circa Sportsbook offers bettors daily in-depth expert analysis from broadcasters, athletes and industry professionals. Reserve a private table and charge your phone on the pop-up electrical outlets, check the line and place a wager at the numerous betting windows and order up tasty bites from Victory Burger & Wings or Project BBQ. The extra-spicy buffalo wings with bleu cheese and a bucket of beer are the perfect complement to goal after goal after goal. Fun fact: The tables at Circa Sportsbook feature old Las Vegas newspaper clippings.
For the Win, Eh?
Grab a Molson … and watch the game? When the action heats up in the third period, head over to The D and check out Bar Canada, a Canada-themed hockey bar. Even if you aren’t from north of the border, 85-inch televisions are the international language, as are the convenient betting windows located adjacent to Bar Canada. This locale is perfect to play a little game we call the Canadian Taste Test. The recommended order: Molson in the bottle or by the pitcher, then classic Caesar or the Candian 75 cocktail. It’s definitely Bar Canada for the win!
