Your first two suggestions are fine, but Roebuck? No way. It is far too blighted and depressed for what D&B needs to sustain itself. Chucky cheese, Starbucks and even Krystals all closed up in that area.

I am excited that we are finally getting Pappadeaux, so I guess this crosses out this location for a Dave & Busters. Where else could a D & B work well in town? The Summit is pretty much maxed out(although I have seen a recent article where it is stated that a few small buildings may be built at The Summit because of all of the new additions--Michael Kors, Vineyard Vines, The North Face, etc.)

I thought about Brookwood Mall next to Macy's, but no interstate access.

Lakeview's the natural place for something like a Dave and Busters the target market is young people and Lakeview has a far better vibe, bars, restaurants (including a 24hr diner in the works) and easy access to 280 and 31.

I was thinking Lakeview as well, but was concerned about the population (not necessarily daytime population) not being high enough. I am sure the nearby incomes of Forest Park/Highland Park and Loft dwellers, could boost the areas income level.

You bet and it's a stone's throw from much of Mountain Brook and South Crestwood isn't too shabby either.

Sounds like the kind of overpriced large chain establishment that should go in the new downtown entertainment district or a suburban mall to me.

It's true that it would clash a bit with Lakeview's unique localness but even hipsters need a guilty pleasure .

The new entertainment district is certainly a thought...

I agreed at first, however the largest space there is already taken. I don't know what their average sq. feet would be. (anyone?) I'm wondering about the vacant Bruno building in Inverness. Lots of the right age, money and accessibility, especially from the west. (hoover proper)

ps if you haven't been to Mooyah Burger at Colonnade, should go. It's a great location for DandB, but no building or land???

I has occured to me that with Galleria , Brookwood Village, and The Summit built out, it may be on the books with a top developer to be ready when the recession IS REALLY OVER to come up with a new center of some sort. The main three have no land left. We can't even get a Maggiano's unless they kick something else out. Well this is another thread, sorry.
