Once the pandemic was in the rearview mirror last July, the West Des Moines City Council approved plans for a new building to house Dave & Buster's. Fast forward ten months and Dave & Buster's new location is almost ready to open.

The new Dave & Buster's being built at 170 S. Jordan Creek Parkway in West Des Moines, just south of Jordan Creek Town Center is a big one. The 21,000-square-foot building will feature over 100 arcade games in what's called Dave & Buster's Million Dollar Midway. The Des Moines Register says there will also be a 40-foot "WOW" Wall, with dozens of HDTVs to watch all of your favorite sports.
