New Laser Tag Bar in West End to Host Grand Opening on Friday

West End bar/arcade/laser tag arena Doyle’s Outpost is planning to host a grand opening celebration on Friday, Jan. 10.

The new “entertainment venue” in the Seminary Plaza shopping center (4620 Kenmore Avenue) features a restaurant and bar along with a two-level laser tag arena, with some arcade games and VR attractions thrown into the mix.

The grand opening is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. with the ribbon cutting at 6 p.m. City officials are scheduled to attend, according to the Facebook page, but whether they will play laser tag is unclear.

The venue mainly focuses on drawing in groups — like birthday parties or corporate events — but staff said the full-service bar and restaurant, arcade games, and laser tag are all open to individuals as well.

Food at the restaurant are mainly sports bar staples like flatbread pizzas and assorted entrees, like meatball subs or tacos. The alcohol menu ranges from cocktails and beers to “slushie drinks.”

The laser tag arena is the centerpiece of Doyle’s Outpost, with a nearly 6,000-square-foot arena depicting a scene of apocalyptic destruction in D.C.: local icons in flames, helicopters flying overhead, the Lincoln Memorial in shambles — all the classics.

Individual laser tag games are $9 per person, $16 for two games, or $20 for three games. The laser tag arena can also be rented out for private events.
