Head down to Circa to have a drink with Vegas Vickie, a Las Vegas neon icon. She made her debut downtown on Fremont Street in 1980, hanging over The Glitter Gulch. She shares history with another neon icon, Vegas Vic, who still hangs over The Pioneer Club downtown. Vegas Vic has been around since the 1950s. When the blonde cowgirl arrived, she served as a partner to the long-standing cowboy just across the street. Sadly, she was taken down in 2017 when The Glitter Gulch closed its doors in order to make way for Circa Resort.
Luckily, Vegas’ history is being kept alive. Thanks to Circa’s owner, Derek Stevens, Vegas Vickie has made a comeback! She has been restored and looks brand new. The 25-foot tall cowgirl can now be seen sitting at her new home inside of Circa’s lobby. Vickie is the centerpiece of the cocktail lounge, which is why it was named after her. Just like Vickie, the lounge’s menu fuses old and new together. Enjoy traditional cocktails and specialty drinks based on the season. It’s a retro yet modern bar!
There’s so much to see and do at Circa, so kick off a night out here or wind down at the end of the evening. It’s a great place to have a couple of drinks and relax.
Next time you’re around say ‘Howdy!’ to Vickie; she’ll get a kick out of it.
The lounge is open from 9:30am to 3am daily.
