Tired of working from home? So are we.
It’s time for a staycation at Downtown Las Vegas’ newest casino-resort, the sparklingly gilded Circa Las Vegas, which offers four different prime locations to set up shop for work and play. Boasting super-fast Wi-Fi where you can Zoom, Snap and then relax in the comfort of a careful, adults-only environment, productivity and focus hit an all-time high when the vibe is kick back and chill. Plus, when it’s time to shut the laptop and play as hard as you work, Circa has you covered—hands down.
“Circa is now home to some of the most stunning hotel rooms and suites in all of the city, and watching Las Vegas light up before your eyes from Legacy Club is one of those ‘wow’ moments you have to experience for yourself,” says Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa.
If you’re tired of staring at the same four walls of your home or office, Circa offers views for days in each of its room configurations, as well as the stunning Legacy Club Rooftop Cocktails. Housed inside the tallest hotel tower north of the Strip, Circa’s chic rooms and suites showcase captivating views of Las Vegas Boulevard, Stadium Swim and the Valley’s surrounding mountain ranges.

Be the CEO
It’s not enough to just be the boss, you can work like a boss in Circa’s Founders Suite. At 1,830 square feet, this Strip-view suite has two separate bedrooms with King Serta Chateau mattresses—one for you and one for your assistant—and a flat-screen TV in each room.

In the large banquette space, cocktail hour turns into party time as the dining table hosts executive dinners at the black quartz table, while the electric fireplace invites deep conversations. Take in the stunning art installations, upgraded finishes and this suite’s signature scent.
The Ultimate Meeting Space
Offering a view that you can’t get anywhere else in Las Vegas, jet up to the 60th floor of Circa’s hotel tower via the express elevator and behold the indoor/outdoor, 8,400-square-foot The Legacy Club. This 360-degree view of Las Vegas is complemented by craft cocktails, an upscale lounge, expansive outdoor terrace with fire pits and eclectic electro swing music. Once you see it, you will want to take all your meetings there.
The Legacy Club’s entryway houses a series of custom metal busts of iconic Las Vegas pioneers and legends—a great way to inspire your own hustle.
If money is on your mind, a must-see photo opportunity in The Legacy Club is a glittering display of 1,000 ounces of pure gold. A ticker atop the Circa-branded gold bars will show their combined value based on the current price of gold.
The sweeping lounge features multiple seating options, including plush couches, cozy fire pits and banquettes on the stunning outdoor terrace and stools at the centerpiece bar. Guests who want to take full advantage of the evening’s sunset can book one of The Legacy Club’s “Sunset Packages,” a special seating area on the balcony dedicated to giving guests the view of a lifetime.

Sports, Stadium Swim and Eats
In addition to the stylish rooms, the crown jewel Legacy Club and all its tasty libations, there are a bountiful amount of amenities to explore throughout the 1.25 million-square-foot property that will ensure your playtime is as productive as your work.
Want to wind down by watching 19 games at once?
Visit the world’s largest sportsbook with a 78 million pixel screen viewable to as many as 1,000 people. The three-story layout alone makes it the most unique sportsbook in town. Then factor in the diverse wagering menu and that Sports Betting Network (VSiN) has its own on-site studio giving bettors in-depth expert analysis daily from broadcasters, athletes and industry professionals, and you have a trifecta of greatness. No matter your party size, the Circa Sportsbook has the ideal reservable accommodations—from reclining seats to booths for large groups, and all are equipped with power outlets, Wi-Fi and tables. When your crew gets hungry, order from one of Circa’s restaurants and have it delivered directly to your seat. You may just want to schedule your 3 p.m. “meeting” from the Sportsbook.
Need to take a dip no matter the season?
Stadium Swim at Circa has pools heated to up to 104 degrees that can be enjoyed all year long. Stadium Swim is the largest destination pool experience for sports fans, open 365 days a year with a 14 million pixel screen. Stadium Swim features six temperature-controlled pools and two swim-up bars to enjoy as the day’s hottest games and televised events play in the background. When not catching the action on the screens, kick back in one of 30 cabanas as a DJ spins live music. If you’re really a boss, the super cabana hosts up to 50.
Love to eat day and night?
Circa boasts new-to-Las Vegas food and beverage concepts by renowned chefs and restaurateurs from across the country. Barry’s Downtown Prime puts on the glitz and glam that the city’s top steakhouses are known for everywhere. Chef Barry S. Dakake and his team at Make It Happen Hospitality have curated a menu of steaks and seafood, tableside preparations and creative cocktails. This is a throwback to the heyday of classic cool. On the walls and all around, scope out featured art by more than 40 local artists in eight distinct dining rooms. Barry’s is the perfect place to schedule a dinner meeting when you’re looking to seal the deal.
If you’re up late jamming on a last-minute project, Circa has plenty of options to keep you well-fed and motivated. From Paul Saginaw, renowned for Ann Arbor’s staple Zingerman’s Deli in Michigan, the 24-hour Saginaw’s Delicatessen has legendary sandwiches that need to be eaten with two hands, matzo ball soup, onion rings, salads, latkes and breakfast specialties. Saginaw’s is where you can now get Golden Gate’s legendary Las Vegas shrimp cocktail, sold at its original price of 99 cents, from 3 to 5 a.m. daily.
Also on the menu at Circa, book a table at casual dining options 8 East, Victory Burger & Wings Co. and Project BBQ.
8 East from Chef Dan Coughlin offers the perfect place to continue that creative brainstorm with your work pals. Feast on small plates with Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai and Korean influences, and don’t miss the signature dumplings, skewers, noodles and more paired with whiskies and other fun libations.
If you’re looking to celebrate a small work triumph or bite into a burger while continuing to crunch spreadsheet numbers, Victory Burger & Wings Co. is the place for you. Created by the founding family of Detroit’s 103-year-old American Coney Island, Victory Burger & Wings Co. is Circa’s all-star sports bar with massive burgers, wings and fries and overlooks Circa’s sportsbook for an extra-fun vibe.
Finally, if you’re looking to eat on the fly between meetings, Project BBQ is your best bet. Located on Fremont Street Experience as a permanent food truck, Project BBQ is a true Carolina barbecue joint with pulled brisket, pork and chicken—and tacos and empanadas, too. For those who enjoy a challenge, snap up the Hogstravaganza platter featuring a full barbecued pig.
