New Orleans Means Fun and Fun Means Dave & Buster’s.

If you like arcade fun–and who doesn’t–you’ll love Dave & Buster’s on Poydras, right near the Superdome. It’s a great place to play both classic and state-of-the-art games, billiards, four-person air hockey, or watch your favorite sports teams on massive screens with epic stadium sound (Who Dat!) while you grab a bite to eat.

The food and cocktails are fun, too. If you’re a kid, there are icy drinks with gummy worms and temperature-changing straws. If you’re a grown-up, you’ll dig the huge beer selection and the cocktails (we can personally vouch for the Mango Berry Bull with the frozen strawberry ice cubes). And, if you’re human, you’ll have a great time choosing treats from their extensive menu. We really enjoyed the Ancho Caesar Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Pretzel Dogs, Dynamite Fried Shrimp drizzled with spicy Bang Bang sauce, and Dave & Buster’s Crispy Pot Stickers.

Why Locals Love D&B

For birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, family reunions, happy hour with your BFFs and Sunday afternoons with dad, you can do no better than Dave & Busters. It’s also ideal for company parties and team-building activities. Got a meeting? There are many soundproof private rooms — the tables are dry-eraser boards (you can write on them! So cool) and, between formal sessions, you can do a little team building playing games on the Million Dollar Midway.  Every group gets free passes to play.

Dave & Buster’s has hundreds of the coolest games out there. If you’ve heard of it, they’ve got it. And, of course, don’t even think of leaving without trying one of their Virtual Reality games like Men in BlackTM: Galactic Getaway, Jurassic WorldTM  VR Expedition, DragonfrostTM Virtual Reality Game, and Star TrekTM  Dark Remnant. Like the YouTube video  says, “Set your phasers on fun!” And when it’s all over, select great toys and high-tech gadgets in the Winner’s Circle.

Why Visitors Love D&B

You came to New Orleans to play and play you will at Dave & Buster’s. When it’s super-hot or raining or you just want to watch the Saints play but don’t have tickets to the game, Dave & Buster’s is the answer. On game day, go catch the free fun in Champion Square, then stroll on over and watch the game on our huge TVs. There are no nosebleed sections at D&B’s. 

Why Wait?

There are always tons of events and specials going on at Dave & Buster’s. On Wednesdays, all games are 50% off and there are fantastic Happy Hour specials throughout the week. The holidays will be here before you know it and they have special party room discounts if you book early. Contact a planner to learn more.
