Derek Stevens’ big plans have paid off in Las Vegas by Brock Radke of Las Vegas Magazine

Downtown Las Vegas casino owner and developer Derek Stevens cemented his legacy as an innovative force in the city’s unique history on Oct. 28. That’s when Circa Resort & Casino made its debut on the historic corner of Fremont and Main streets, the first brand-new casino resort in the downtown area in decades. But it wasn’t just the latest property to open and generate fresh excitement for Las Vegas visitors. Circa is the culmination of what Stevens—a Michigan native, huge sports fan and aficionado of the classic Vegas experience—has learned from his experiences acquiring and operating the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino; purchasing another downtown property, Fitzgeralds, and renovating it into The D Casino & Hotel on the opposite end of the Fremont Street Experience; and developing the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center and his own Circa | Sports betting operation.

The growth of sports betting nationally helps us and it helps Las Vegas,’ he said during a recent interview.

“‘If the Miami Beach City Manager Raul Aguila wants to send people to Las Vegas, on behalf of myself and my employees, keep sending them! It’s a great partnership,’ Circa owner Derek Stevens said. Circa’s Stadium Swim was crowded with guests Friday afternoon. Stevens said he expects even more over the next few weeks. ‘What’s happening here with the vaccine is having an impact on tourism,’ Stevens said. ‘Bookings for us the rest of March and end of the quarter are kind of through the roof right now.’

Catering to adults only, the 44-story resort boasts 777 guest rooms, ranging from two-bedroom suites to bunkbed suites for large groups. Attractions include Swim Stadium, a swim amphitheater with six pools, swim-up bars and a 40-foot HD screen for broadcasting sports events, and Circa Sports, a dedicated space for sports betting where you can watch 19 sporting events at once.


Las Vegas Welcomes Dissed Miami Beach Spring Breakers by Larry Henry of

“‘If the Miami Beach city manager, Raul Aguila, wants to send people to Las Vegas, on behalf of myself and my employees, keep sending them,’ Stevens told KVVU-TV. ‘It’s a great partnership.’ Circa opened in downtown Las Vegas last year, the first hotel-casino built from the ground up in that area in 40 years. Circa is an adults-only resort, banning anyone under 21. That means many college-age spring breakers will not be allowed there. However, Stevens and others in the gaming industry are hopeful the city’s sluggish tourism numbers will rebound soon. In 2020, Las Vegas experienced its lowest visitor volume since 1989. Last year, 19.03 million people visited Las Vegas, down 55.2 percent from 2019.
