Best Kiddie Singles Bar

Dave & Buster's Before 10pm

This branch of the steadily growing Dallas entertainment megaplex is primarily geared toward adults, which is pretty funny, since it is essentially a video arcade. You might say D&B appeals to the kid in all of us, or more accurately, the raging hormone-engorged adolescent in all of us. They've got all the latest hightech gadgetry in the form of elaborate games like Firefighter, 18-wheeler, and a cool freestanding Western-themed shootin' gallery. It's an overwhelming 40,002 square feet of bleeps and bloops and machines that go whoooo whooo and glow in the dark. But the best thing? Although they are a late-night singles hot spot, they allow kids (accompanied by an adult over the age of 25) - and in fact encourage families - to enjoy the overstimulation before 10pm.
