I just checked the Dave & Buster’s official site, but there is still no mention of the Niagara Falls location. However, I did a quick Google Search and found that there is a local web site set up at http://www.daveandbustersniagarafalls.com/. There is a testimonial there, but the place isn’t close to being open yet, so I don’t know what they are “testifying” about…

More parking lost on Clifton Hill

3 Comments

The old Niagara Marketplace on Clifton Hill used to have several parking spaces out front. When that building was torn down and the new Tim Hortons/Canada Trading Company/Galaxy Golf building was put up, the sidewalk was changed and the parking was removed. Well, the same thing has happened across the street at the upcomding Dave & Buster’s.

Hello From Niagara Falls – Exploring The Clifton Hills Entertainment Area & Doing A Little Gambling

No Comments

Someone with their own blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

Yesterday morning my last full day in Niagara Falls, Ontario, had arrived. After a packed schedule the day before that had included a wonderful presentation at the Imax Theatre, my up-close encounter with the Great Falls at the Journey Behind the Falls and an entertaining show at the Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Theatre, I got ready for another full day of explorations in Niagara Falls.

New Bowling Pin sign up and running!

This new bowling pin sign is attached to the same tower that had the temperature displayed on it, (as was discussed here). The new sign now flashes each letter white in a downward streamline. It kind of has a nice 50’s nostalgic look to it!

$15-million venue to open soon on Hill

2 Comments

Not a huge surprise here as this Dave & Busters has been discussed on here for several months now. It says it should be completed in about 3 weeks, can’t wait to see the sign go up!

From the Niagara Falls Review

A $15-million restaurant complex under construction on Clifton Hill is quickly taking shape.

The iconic street will soon be the home of a new Dave & Buster’s Restaurant and Amusement Centre, with a second one planned for the Fallsview area next year.

“It will be truly unique and different from anything in the area,” said Wayne Thomson, spokesman for the Fallsview Group.

Dave & Buster’s is an American franchise that has proven popular in the U. S. There is only one in Canada, located in Toronto.

The property, at the corner of Oneida Lane on Clifton Hill, once housed the former Pilgrim Restaurant. It was purchased by Carmen Menechella of the Fallsview Group, representing a $15-million investment.

The original plan was to renovate the existing structure, but it was in poor condition. Instead, the owners constructed a new three-storey building.

“It’s a total entertainment destination,” said Thomson, noting it will have something for the entire family.

He said it’s the kind of place where a family could attend a Christmas or birthday party, and while one parent sat in the sports bar with about 40 large-screen televisions, the children could play billiards, shuffleboard, basketball or all kinds of electronic video games.

“It will have everything you can think of … It’s totally unique,” said Thomson.

It’s expected the new facility will open in about three weeks.
