Hollywood Dave & Buster’s to host alcohol-free New Year’s Eve

For a fun, safe and truly unique New Year’s Eve experience, gather up the kids and head over to Dave & Buster’s in Hollywood for the Third Annual Family New Year’s Eve.

The event promises nonstop entertainment in a festive setting from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m., featuring a magician, a face painter, a DJ and dancing, unlimited video game play, billiards and shuffleboard, and all-night buffets – all included in the admission charge of $59.99 for adults and $39.99 for children ages 5 to 12.

The only thing you won’t find at this local New Year’s Eve bash is alcohol – and that’s the whole point of the family friendly event, at the 70,000-square-foot Dave & Buster’s in the Oakwood Plaza.

In the spirit of a New Year’s Eve celebration, virgin specialty drinks, or “mocktails,” will be available for an additional charge. All-night buffets will feature a variety of hot and cold selections, including vegetarian dishes, salads, desserts and 'kid-friendly' finger foods.

The Hollywood Dave & Buster’s also hosts and co-sponsors, along with the Hollywood Gazette, the monthly ‘Party with a Purpose’ series. The happy-hour event, which will continue in the New Year, spotlights and benefits a different local charity each month, providing invaluable funding and exposure for various nonprofit organizations and their causes, as well as serving as a networking opportunity for local professionals who are committed to making a difference in their community.

The Third Annual Family New Year’s Eve at Dave & Buster’s will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Dec. 31 at 3000 Oakwood Blvd. in the Oakwood Plaza, located at Interstate 95 and Stirling Road. Admission is $59.99 (plus taxes and gratuities) for adults and $39.99 for ages 5 to 12. There is no charge for children younger than 5. Admission includes all entertainment, video game play, all-you-can-eat buffets, soda, tea and coffee.
