Dave & Buster’s Appears to Be Under Construction in Lubbock
Construction is underway in the West End Shopping Center at 2602 West Loop 289, which is currently an empty lot between Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond. According to West End's website, that's exactly where a Dave & Buster's location will be located.
The last we heard about Dave & Buster's in Lubbock was September 2021 when the company requested a variance. According to 94.5 FMX at the time, Dave & Buster's was seeking to vary the number of parking sports needed to operate:
5.7 Case V-4996: Dave & Buster’s Inc. for West End Sheraton, LLC Request for a variance to vary the required number of parking spaces for a sports grill from 423 spaces to 360 spaces, on property zoned Interstate Highway Commercial District (IHC), per Section 40.03.2852 (a), at: • 2602 West Loop 289, located south of 26th Street and west of West Loop 289, West End Addition, Tract L.
By the way, that address on Google Maps takes you to the lot where construction is currently underway. So it does appear as though Dave & Buster's is finally under construction in the West End Shopping Center.
If you've never been to a Dave & Buster's before, you're really missing out. They have greats drinks, food, and, of course, arcade games. The company recently finalized its acquisition of the more kid-friendly Main Event first announced in April. From what we've heard, Lubbock's Main Event location will continue to operate as usual.
So when will the building go up and Dave & Buster's open? That's a great question. According to Lubbock in the Loop, construction was supposed to start in April with Dave and Buster's "tentatively" opening in February 2023.
