Dave & Buster’s has set a tentative grand opening date: Oct. 17.
This is probably the most highly anticipated opening of any business in Fresno this year (yes, even bigger than Hobby Lobby’s opening).
Keep in mind this is a tentative opening date, so don’t take the day off work just yet. When it comes to the last-minute details and final approvals from government agencies, openings sometimes get delayed a few days. And sometimes there are quiet “soft openings” that happen before the big grand opening.
Dave & Buster’s, under construction at Friant Road and Highway 41, is a bar-restaurant-arcade that’s essentially a playland for adults.
The company is boasting that the Fresno location will have adult snow cones, a restaurant featuring bacon-wrapped shrimp with lobster sauce and a Buffalo wing burger, “more than 30 HD, big-screen TVs and a 360-degree sports bar” and 180 games to play.
Dave & Buster’s is also hiring 250 people via its website. Jobs include servers, bartenders, hosts, cooks and service support positions.
