As we prepare to turn the page and welcome another year, a persistent question remains: Where will you be when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve? Holiday celebrations are being held throughout Las Vegas, including the Strip, which will be closed to auto traffic. However, there’s one Downtown destination that could provide the best bang for your buck to ring in 2022.
The Legacy Club is hosting a “Sky High New Year’s Eve Celebration” with tickets starting at $350 per person. The party gets underway at 10 p.m. with an open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. The stylish cocktail lounge sits atop the 458-foot Circa hotel tower, the tallest in Downtown Las Vegas. The views from the 60th floor are staggering – and perfect for New Year’s Eve. You’ll have up-close views of the Plaza’s fireworks show next door while also watching the Strip fireworks to the south, which will erupt from the rooftops of eight resorts. The Legacy Club has floor-to-ceiling windows in the main room, providing 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Valley. The spacious outdoor patio is even better for soaking in the colorful scenery.
Space is limited, so book a reservation now by visiting the Legacy Club website. The open bar includes specialty cocktails and select whiskey and wines. Call the Circa concierge at 702-247-2258 (702-CIRCALV) to inquire about upgrading your ticket to a premium open bar package. Groups of up to six people can also reserve a fire pit on the outdoor terrace to fully enjoy those wraparound Vegas views for $3,000. Larger groups of up to 12 people can book fire pit seating for $6,000.
Whether visiting on New Year’s Eve or any other day of the year, the Legacy Club is one of the most engaging places to enjoy a cocktail in Las Vegas. The 8,400-foot-lounge combines contemporary charm with old-school swagger while celebrating Nevada culture. The regular menu lists classic and specialty cocktails, generally listed at $18 to $19; not a bad price considering all the wow-factor that’s included with a visit.
The Legacy Club makes an impression from the moment you step off the elevator with a collection of busts near the entrance that pay tribute to casino moguls and other business pioneers who helped shape modern Las Vegas. The names include Jackie Gaughan, Benny Binion, Jay Sarno, Kirk Kerkorian, Sam Boyd, Steve Wynn, William Bennett, Bob Stupak, Barron Hilton, Howard Hughes and Frank Fertitta.
Guests will also see black-and-white photos of “Old Vegas” and a jaw-dropping display of gold bars, kept safely behind unbreakable grass with an ever-changing digital display that reveals the current price of the 1,000-ounce collection based on real-time market fluctuations.

Could there be a better time than New Year’s Eve to see what the Legacy Club is all about? Make the most of your holiday experience by booking a suite at the 512-room Circa resort. Begin the night on the right foot with dinner at one of the property’s stellar dining spots (including Barry’s Downtown Prime steakhouse or 8 East for inspired Asian street food) before heading upstairs to the Legacy Club.
