The first Connecticut Dave & Buster's – a popular restaurant, bar and arcade – is set to open at the Buckland Hills Mall in Manchester on Monday.
In addition to a full service restaurant and bar, Dave & Buster's offers more than 200 arcade games from skeeball to Temple Run.
Manchester's Planning and Zoning Commission approved the restaurant last October for a 26,400-square-foot plot of land next to Market Grill.
The restaurant, which provides online job applications, began interviewing candidates last month in search of servers, hosts, bartenders, cooks and game technicians.
Currently, the closest Dave & Buster's locations are in Providence Road Island and Braintree, Massachusetts and the restaurant chain spans as far as Hawaii and Canada.
The Manchester location is slated to open on Monday, Sept. 22 at 11 a.m.
