New 35,000-Square-Foot Facility Marks Phase Two of Development for Downtown Las Vegas Casino-Resort
Circa Resort & Casino’s 35,000-square-foot meeting and convention space is now open and available for booking. The state-of-the-art facility marks the second phase of development for the downtown Las Vegas’ resort, providing meeting planners contemporary, tech-forward options to book events, galas, meetings and more, off the Strip.
Circa’s meeting spaces offer groups top-tier, turnkey audio and visual capabilities and customizable rooms for up to 1,000 guests. Featuring a ballroom, breakout and banquet rooms, adjacent pre-function space and a 1,600-square-foot outdoor terrace, the spaces are outfitted to complement Circa’s mid-century, art deco and modern design motifs.
“As the meetings and events industries continue to ramp up after the pandemic, we are thrilled to introduce our incredible facilities to downtown Las Vegas,” said Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa. “It has always been our intention to add this to Circa’s repertoire, and we look forward to kicking off our first series of events in September.”
Equipped with best-in-class technology, Circa makes it easy for on-the-spot event functionality. Unique environmental measures have been implemented including LED lighting and adaptive, intelligent controlled HVAC systems that adjust temperatures to changing ecosystems. Additional technological offerings include 16K LU laser projectors, retractable screens, audio tie lines, patchable ethernet lines, strands of patchable single mode fiber in pairs on LC connectors, quad outlets and LED screens.
The facility also features a large freight elevator to transport large vehicles and displays directly to the third floor for ease of access. A full kitchen is dedicated to Circa’s convention area, serving up delectable food and beverage experiences to elevate any event into an unforgettable occasion.
Sasha Lee, Circa’s Director of Sales, said “When creating these spaces, we kept meeting planners in mind with details such as flexible room sizes, in-house IT to maintain lower costs and a large elevator for easy load out. We are so pleased with how the area turned out and proud to introduce Las Vegas’ newest convention area.”
Circa’s meetings and conventions facility was designed by JCJ Architecture with the original design concept from Steelman Partners. For an overview of Circa’s meeting and event spaces, click here.
Circa’s event offerings were planned with adaptability and customization in mind, accommodating multiple configurations and combination seating to support meeting planners’ needs. Continuing the property’s tradition of honoring Las Vegas’ history, each of the five main meeting spaces are named after iconic Las Vegas motels from past eras:

Four adjoining meeting rooms boast 14,456 square feet and a 1,677-square-foot outdoor terrace overlooking the city. It was designed to be able to host a multitude of events with a large LED screen, built-in audio-visual capabilities, full rigging and a partition wall that opens the ballroom to the pre-function spaces.
- Starlite: Opened in the 1950s and still operating today, Starlite became popular due to its star-themed rooms during the height of the Space Age. Starlite spans 3,572 square feet across three rooms and includes built-in audio-visual, full rigging and access to pre-function spaces.
