Dave & Buster’s is a restaurant chain that specializes in arcade games. Dave & Buster’s has more locations (70) than states in the U.S., including ones in Hawaii and Canada. The closest location to St. Louis is just within the St. Louis County western border at 13857 Riverport Drive, Maryland Heights, MO 63043.
Billiards tables, darts and other bar games are available to play, but the main attraction is the wealth of video games.
Power cards are used to play hundreds of different kinds of games, whether it be arcade, sports, dance, or other. Sundays-Thursdays all day, as well as Fridays and Saturdays till 5 p.m., you can choose from one of 17 entrées and receive a power card at a $10 value. Or you can get a $20 card with your selected entrée for $27.
Supercharging power cards for a few dollars more get you 25% more chips for playing games. Typically, the larger the game, the more chips are required to play it when swiping a power card. Most games accumulate tickets on the card based on performance, which can be cashed in at the prize store inside.
The fun doesn’t have to stop when you leave D&B either. By downloading D&B games off their free mobile apps, you can input a power card within to get tickets put on the card after playing the games in order to have more tickets on your card when you return to the prize store at a later date.
The great thing about Wednesdays is all games are half-price all day long. In addition, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays have specials ongoing. Also, when you sign up for D&B rewards, you get $10 free game play when you buy $10 game play. And after registering, you get $10 every time you spend $100 on games, beverages and food.

Until March 13, 2016, just by purchasing or recharging a power card for at least $10 gets you entered to win one of the million prizes, such as free Beats headphones, free food, free game play or free tickets.
The last event scheduled was New Year’s Eve, and there are no upcoming events posted. However, they did show the Super Bowl on every TV when it aired, and will be showing March Madness when it airs live. Currently all the Bellator MMA fights are being shown.
Events available include, but are not limited to, sports team events, mitzvahs, group happy hours, national events, team building, birthday parties and corporate events. Adults can have parties or meetings and kids can have parties. It’s like Chuck E. Cheese’s but for everyone.
