Music for Restaurants of Any Type

Customize streaming music to meet the needs of your restaurant ambiance.

Restaurants, Bars & Pubs

Consistency is key in the bar and restaurant business. Every aspect of your restaurant, bar or pub needs to be curated. The service, menu, the drinks and music should all work together to create a memorable experience.

As a manager, you need control of your playlists, scheduling and permissions to ensure that you set the right mood at the right time. With a curated playlist, you can build momentum through happy hour, turn tables during dinner and encourage patrons to linger late at night.

Fine Dining Restaurants

Fine dining success is defined by a restaurateurs’ careful attention to the balance of food, service and atmosphere. The right playlist can accentuate a mood, evoke feelings and underscore themes in your space.

As a restaurant operator, you need the ability to create separate moods in your reception area, bar, dining room, rest rooms and event spaces. Up-tempo music can move a couple extra cocktails in the bar, while light jazz with dinner can influence patrons to linger and even inspire the need for dessert or an after dinner drink.

Fast Casual and Quick Serve Restaurants

Speed is key in Fast Casual and Quick Serve Restaurants. Customers expect high efficiency from both in-store and drive-thru ordering, and studies show that down-tempo music can decrease perceived wait times and increase customer ratings in these environments. Also, during rushes, more up tempo music can turn tables more quickly.

As a fast food operator, your control of music playlists, scheduling and promotional messages can ensure that employees remain motivated, take-outs remain patient and diners enjoy a break in their busy days.
