More than three months before it opens, Circa’s new year round pool dubbed Stadium Swim started accepting reservations. The pool at the new casino and resort under construction in Downtown Las Vegas features much more than just a place to swim; the multi-level pool amphitheater offers a massive screen for showing games and entertainment, two swim-up bars, and a deejay booth for spinning tunes.
The 1.25 million-square-foot casino and resort plans to open the first five floors along with a parking garage ahead of schedule on Oct. 28. The resort plans to be an adults-only experience, open only to those 21 and older. When it opens its first five floors in late October, it becomes the first casino and resort to ban underage visitors. Circa replaces the rundown, former Las Vegas Club with a glitzy, 21st century resort. The remainder of the resort opens in December.
Steelman Partners designed the space with six pools and two spas spread over 15,756 square feet of wet space. Each of the pools features a different temperature, ranging from 78 to 94 degrees. On the fifth level, pools come heated at 104 degrees on colder days.
The complex includes 30 cabanas and super cabanas that can accommodate up to 25 guests. Approximately 340 chaise lounges, 38 day beds, and eight poolside boxes round out the spaces that can be rented. VIP services include dedicated servers and towel refreshment.
Stadium Swim also has its own food from Michigan restaurateurs Paul Saginaw, Chris Sotiropoulos, and Grace Keros. Menu highlights include lobster corn dogs with a yuzu dipping sauce, fruit nachos, and the Stadium Dog, Circa’s twist to a Sonoran dog. Customer can use mobile tablets that send orders directly to the kitchen or bar.
A 135-foot by 41-foot, 14-million-megapixel LED screen broadcasts major games and televised events.
The pools also plan to offer self-cleaning several times a day, fully recirculating water four to six times faster than required by public health codes. All eight bodies of water will have UVL sanitizers that get rid of pathogens, bacteria, viruses, organic, and inorganic contaminants, and greatly reduce chlorine use.
CEO and developer Derek Stevens, who also owns the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate, says four of the resort’s restaurants and the sports book, as well as the two-story casino with 1,350 slot machines and 49 table games, will debut in Oct. 28.
