Alas, its finally here. On Monday, May 22, at 11 a.m., the long-awaited Dave & Busters will open at 1200 Poyrdras Street.
Featured on the Curbed New Orleans 2017 top construction projects, the 264,000-square-foot development has a five-story parking garage, a French bistro on the ground floor and, a 40,000 square-foot Dave & Buster’s on the 6th floor. The New Orleans Dave & Buster’s is the company’s 97th location.
Inside the venue
The entertainment venue has a sports bar, two special event rooms, a board room, an arcade with over 150 games, and a ticket-redemption store.
“We like all of our locations to feel local,” said Alex Purdy, the national marketing manager for Dave & Buster’s.
Designers decorated the walls of the dining areas and special event rooms with iconic images of New Orleans. In the sports-centered dining area, the walls are stylized with names of Louisiana sport team names, from the LSU tigers to the New Orleans Saints.
“You can’t look anywhere without a screen being there,” Purdy said.
Beyond the restaurant’s 30 HD TV’s, the arcade section—dubbed Million Dollar Midway—has over 150 arcade games, including a large-screen Pac Man and AMC’s “The Walking Dead” video game. Throughout the year, Dave & Buster’s will add new video games to its selection, Purdy said.
Attending Dave & Buster’s
Dave & Buster’s will also have two special event rooms for private parties and organizational retreats. Parties can range from 20 people, to renting out the entire venue for up to 2,000 people, according to Purdy. There is also a private boardroom for smaller scale corporate meetings.
The venue is open 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday though Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
All minors need to be accompanied with an adult of 25 years of age or older to admitted into the restaurant and arcade.
