Release Date: 11.21.08
World headquartered in Dallas, Dave & Buster’s is appropriately capping off its 25th anniversary year with the opening of its newest location in nearby Arlington. Nationally known as the place to EAT, DRINK and PLAY, the company is creating good news by bringing approximately 250 new jobs to the area during a tough economy.

The Dave & Buster’s grand opening at Arlington Highlands lifestyle center (I-20 at Matlock Rd./425 Curtis Mathes Way) kicks off tonight with a VIP charity event benefiting Junior League of Arlington and Leadership Arlington, followed by the official public opening in time for Thanksgiving week, Monday, November 24, at 11:00 a.m.

The new 33,000 square-foot location - - the fourth in North Texas - - will feature the latest floor plan, amenities and technology. With a reputation as a playground for well-heeled adults, Dave & Buster’s takes grown-ups back to their youth in a massive, entertaining game-filled environment, while offering top-notch cuisine in a full-service restaurant and bar. Among the entertainment features: state-of-the-art sports viewing capacity on nearly 50 hi-def plasma and flat screen TVs, Million Dollar Midway™ gaming and World Class Pocket Billiards.

“With our World Headquarters in Dallas, we are pleased to round off our company’s silver anniversary with the grand opening of our new Arlington location,” said Mike Theriot, General Manager of the Arlington Highlands Dave & Buster’s. “We have hired approximately 250 new employees to keep the fun, food and games flowing year-round.”

“Our goal from the beginning was to have best in class retailers at Arlington Highlands, and we consider Dave & Buster’s one of those,” said Alan Shor, Co-Founder and President of The Retail Connection, L.P. “Likewise, the Dave & Buster’s team was committed to finding a premier location in Arlington. It was a mutually desirable relationship, and we are confident the location will be highly successful,” he further stated. Arlington Highlands is owned by The Retail Connection, TRC | Connected Development Services, and Chaney & Mathes Properties.

Dave & Buster’s’ Arlington Highlands location will be the 51st for the company, which operates venues in the United States and Canada. Catering to adults who hunger for food and fun, it’s estimated that more than half a million people visit each Dave & Buster’s location each year.
