Walked in & thought the place was closed, the TVs were on so we sat at the bar. Server turned up & left menu & left. Had a couple of drinks & food, as I said don't bother, plenty of other bars in NY.

Decided to go here for my daughter 18th birthday as we were over from the uk celebrating. Picked here as it seemed a fun place to spend the evening. How wrong could we have been..... On arrival it was just pure chaos to be told one thing then told something else. The females on the arrivals desk didn't seem to... More

We tried here for the first time and was really impressed, really good selection of food and drinks at reasonable prices. Service was very good and everything very tasty,. Have lots of promotions for happy hours and deals on food. After this our son tried out the arcade which was great fun with a large selection of games.

I think the word "okay" is what best defines this arcade! Before going I knew it was going to be pricy; after all it is 42nd St Times Square. Some games were great but others are just whatever! Prizes are okay.... The perfect amount to enjoy the experience is the $29.00 for nearly 180 points! Friends had a good time... More

We bought a NYE Couple's VIP package paying almost $500. We were placed directly by the buffet so we had people bumping into our table the whole night. The food they did serve (not at all what was advertised) was cold and bland and not worth the money. The game area was oversold to GA with people sitting on the... More

We bought tickets from Balldrop.com to go to Dave & Busters for New Year's Eve. Paid $129 for me and $149 for my son who was under 21. Not sure if it's the establishment itself but towards closer to New Year's Eve, we were not allowed to go outside to see the ball drop by the cops. Everyone across the... More

We had a nice time here on the evening of Christmas Day. It was really busy, but we were just there for the games. Our kids were able to get right up to most games they wanted to play while only waiting a couple minutes on the rest. While we didn't eat while we were there, the food looked pretty... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
