How music impacts the dining experience

Music and messaging by CloudCover can enhance your business in so many ways


Increase dwell time

In bustling bars the right background music plays a pivotal role in keeping customers engaged, encouraging them to stay longer and enjoy the atmosphere. A perfectly chosen playlist can set the mood, enticing patrons to order another round.


Improve staff morale

Energized songs and the right music can uplift the spirits of the staff at any alehouse. When staff are motivated and enjoy the atmosphere, their enthusiasm is palpable, leading to better service and a happier work environment.


Mask unwanted sounds

Background noise in breweries, from chatter to the clinking of glasses, can sometimes be overwhelming. A well-curated soundtrack can help mask these unwanted sounds, ensuring customers enjoy their time without distractions.


Enhance your brand identity

Every pub has its unique vibe, and the music is a significant part of that. Consistent, genre-appropriate background music solidifies a pub's brand identity, ensuring it's distinct and recognizable to its patrons.


Create a memorable experience

When patrons think back to their evening at a bar, it's often the atmosphere that stands out. Crafting the right music environment is essential; it sets the tone, creating memories that entice customers to return.


Minimize perceived wait times

At a crowded pub, wait times for drinks or a table can be a concern. Curated playlists and the right radio stations not only elevate the atmosphere but can also make the wait seem shorter, enhancing the overall customer experience.

Why is Background Music for Bars & Breweries So Important?

Bars and breweries are where people go to relax and unwind. Playing the right music can help set the tone for your bar and keep your customers entertained while they enjoy their drinks. According to research, playing slower-tempo music increases customer spending—so if you are experiencing a lull, especially during the afternoon or early evening, you may want to go for a more relaxing vibe. Moreover, research has shown that music can make beer taste better.

Other benefits of playing music in your brewery or bar include:

  • Entertainment
  • Create a lively atmosphere
  • Mask noise
  • Create a brand and identity for your establishment
  • Enhance mood and well-being
  • Offer a conversation topic
