3 downtown Reno casinos preparing for major renovations and upgrades
The Circus Circus, Silver Legacy and Eldorado casinos are getting some major upgrades, according to more than 13 building permits filed with the city of Reno since July.
All the permits outline changes to the Courtyard Buffet, Bone Yard Cantina (possibly the Dos Geckos Cantina), Sip's Coffee and Tea Bar, Circus Circus Midway and Bar Centro. The permits also outline construction for a new Hidden Pizza pub, Canter's Deli and poker room. The most recent permit, filed Monday, also outlines changes to exterior lighting of the two Circus Circus towers.
The Silver Legacy recently completed a $2 million upgraded sports book earlier this month with plans to also upgrade the sports book at Circus Circus.
Eldorado Resorts, which owns all three casinos, declined comment on the public records until a later date.
