About GameDay

GameDay was built to provide something exciting to people of all ages in Des Moines. We put a full-service bar, a made-from-scratch kitchen, and a complete arcade under one roof so that nobody has to make compromises. Families, sports fans, couples and more will find that at GameDay, there’s always a reason to cheer, no matter who’s on TV.

GameDay is located in the Merle Hay Mall next to Flix Brewhouse

3800 Merle Hay Road
Suite 1220
