In a divergence from the family-friendly image many Las Vegas resorts have adopted in recent years, Circa Hotel and Casino announced via social media that their resort will be accessible only to adults over the age of 21. The announcement, which surprised many Vegas watchers, came just days after owner Derek Stevens announced Circa’s casino and restaurants will open to the public on October 28th, 2020, followed by the hotel on December 28th.
Once, Las Vegas held a certain mystique as this fabulous place where only grown-ups could play. Call us old-fashioned, but we think adults need some of that mystique back in their lives.

A majority of patrons reacted positively to Circa’s 21+ policy on Twitter, applauding the resort for restricting access to adults only. After all, most visitors don’t enjoy tripping over strollers or sharing hotel amenities with raucous children. There is no sight more depressing than watching a kid stand wearily in a casino walkway while mom frantically pecks the spin button on a slot machine. Fortunately, we’ll be able to avoid that scene at Circa.
While we look forward to the adult-only atmosphere at Circa, it’s the unique amenities that really get our blood pumping. Differentiating itself again from casino peers, Circa will boast a 2-floor casino accentuated by the largest sportsbook in all of Vegas. The enormous 3 story sportsbook will also be home to a VSiN broadcast studio.
Circa’s rooftop pool deck doubles as an amphitheater complete with a 125 foot TV screen. In another Las Vegas first, the new resort will offer a dedicated rideshare pickup/dropoff location in their “Garage Mahal” parking ramp. Vegas Vickie will also return to Fremont Street and be incorporated into the resort’s design.

We are already losing sleep in anticipation of opening night at Cira. The fact the experience will be kid free makes it even sweeter.
