How much do you love Dave & Buster’s? Enough to spend the whole night there? I mean, actually sleep there? It may sound like something out of Willy Wonka, but if you’ve ever had a childhood fantasy of having a sleepover at Dave & Busters, that’s now a reality. At least, it was for one fortunate guest. Much like the daydream a kid may have of such an event (or an adult, if we’re being honest), this sleepover included unlimited food, drinks, and games.

The contest for Dave & Buster’s first-ever overnight suite transformation was announced back in June, and one lucky fan named Haley won.

Dave & Buster’s recently transformed a Miami location (at a mall, no less) into an overnight pop-up experience called the D&B B&B for one night only. Unfortunately for the rest of us, the experience was a prize for a contest winner and her friends, and not something the rest of us can plan for our summer vacation. A girl can still dream, though!

“The magic of Dave & Buster’s is that we create social connections and lasting memories for so many people; this overnight opportunity is unique in that only a few people will ever get to experience it,” said Brandon Coleman III, chief marketing officer and SVP for Dave & Buster’s, in a press release. 

“The whole idea really speaks to our motto right now that ‘Summer is Better in the Great Indoors.’ Outdoors has extreme heat waves, murder hornets, and sharks. In fact, the outdoors kind of suck right now. Not D&B, we’re fun and we have tons of new entertainment, food, and beverages to prove it.”

The overnight experience had an open bar with a full-service bartender mixing up

Now, how can we convince them to make this available to everyone?
