High-traffic Polished Concrete Floor at Dave & Buster’s

Polished concrete flooring at Dave and BustersThe owner of Dallas’s Dave and Buster’s sports bar wanted the look of a contemporary football field for the floor. After the floor was polished to an 800 grit, Chris Post of Elite Concrete Solutions LLC had stickers made of numbers in an NFL-style font. Tape and the stickers created the field pattern. “After the design was put down we sprayed it with diluted black dye and polished to 3,000 grit,” he says. “The only complication was, again, it was a night job.”

The curve of the design posed a challenge too. Each of the 120 grid marks on the floor had to be put down by hand, one by one. “It was a lot of knee work!” says Post.
