Good news! The Dave and Busters location inside Destiny USA in Syracuse has finally set a date to open back up their gaming floor to customers.

Known for their great food and entertaining environment, Dave and Busters has been open for a little while now for food and beverage only. Now, beginning March 26th, the fun will resume as patrons will soon be able to dine in and game on at the same time.

“Excitement is an understatement of how we feel about our third floor entertainment venues reopening,” said Nikita Jankowski, Director of Marketing for Destiny USA. “Since Destiny USA reopened last summer, some of the top questions we’ve received have been about the reopening of Dave & Buster’s and WonderWorks and third floor entertainment in general. We are ecstatic and we are ready. Our guests are ready.”

The franchise has adopted the phrase "we're all about good, clean fun." This comes from the safety protocols that they've developed in a COVID era of operation. Those include:
