The fourteen-year-old Dave and Buster's at 2000 South Colorado Boulevard just became the first link in the chain's 56 locations to get a major overhaul, which was unveiled last Friday. With the new look came some new rules: After 10 p.m., the spot is 21-plus only.
With this update, the original oak-and-brass accoutrements spread throughout the 65,000 square-foot venue have been phased out in favor of a much hipper, almost club-like vibe. Various zones have been redefined; the biggest addition is D&B Sports, which has three thirteen-foot hi-definition projection screens -- some of the biggest in the state.
Dave's Arcade, which was formerly the Midway, features some games made specifically for Dave and Buster's, like Fruit Ninja, a popular app for mobile phones that was recreated in arcade form; customers go to the Swag Room to redeem their tickets for prizes, which include everything from smaller trinkets to Xboxes and snowboards. Next to the arcade, the Rec Rooms sports an old-school feel, with leather couches, wood paneling, ping-pong and pinball tables.
Other zones include EAT at Buster's, the main dining area where oversized red booths can be reserved for parties, and FUNction Rooms, which can be rented out for private events or corporate meetings.
Here's a look at the new Dave and Buster's:
