Doyle’s Outpost expands hours for laser tag and gaming

Doyle’s Outpost just expanded their hours to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The West End’s 16,000-square-foot family-friendly gaming spot at 4620A Kenmore Avenue has eased all of its COVID restrictions, expanded their hours, and is hiring. There’s a two-level laser tag course with a take-back-D.C.-from-the-zombie-apocalypse vibe, video games and more than 25 high definition TVs behind the full bar.

They’re also hiring.

“We need more servers and bartenders, gaming techs and laser tag techs,” owner Kevin Fagan told ALXnow. “Gaming techs start at $13 an hour. This is definitely a good summer job and our managers can hire on the spot.”

It took Fagan more than two years to develop Doyle’s Outpost. A retired Wall Street banker, Fagan is the former owner of the Planet Fitness next door (and 10 other Planet Fitness gyms). He opened Doyle’s Outpost to great fanfare at the end of 2019 — and then COVID-19 forced it to shut down 10 weeks later.

Doyle’s Outpost was closed for six months, before reopening in October. It’s now open Thursday through Sunday, and may be open more days per week depending on demand.

Manager Natese Ragland weathered the pandemic with a skeleton crew of four employees.

“My coworkers keep me motivated,” Ragland said. “We want you to bring the happy and relax. If you’re not happy when you come in, I want you to be happy by the time you leave.”

Fagan is working on bringing back customers. He lives in Summit, New Jersey, visits multiple times a month, and also just signed a one-year deal with student tour group Gerber Tours.

“On Thursday and Friday, we have a $25 all-you-can-play deal where you can play all the games all day long, and two games of laser tag,” he said. “On Sunday Funday, we offer four $20 game cards with a large pizza and sodas for $99.”

Doyle’s Outpost is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, from 4 p.m. to midnight on Friday, noon to midnight on Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
