Dave & Buster's in Wauwatosa will open March 1

Published on: 1/28/2010

Dave & Buster's Inc., perhaps best described as a Chuck E. Cheese for adults, will open its Wauwatosa restaurant/tavern/game room on Monday, March 1.

That's the word from Jonathan Jue, assistant general manager. Dave & Buster's is at 2201 N. Mayfair Road, one block south of W. North Ave.

The 35,000-square-foot restaurant, which will feature arcade games, pool tables and other diversions, will have around 200 employees, Jue said. It will be the first Dave & Buster's in Wisconsin, and will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, with closing time extended to 1 a.m. on weekends.

The Wauwatosa Common Council in November 2008 gave zoning approval for Dave & Buster's despite a vote against the development from a council committee. Some aldermen who initially opposed Dave & Buster's later reversed their votes, saying the company responded to their concerns about traffic and security.
