As any good chef knows, presentation is important. Customers will enjoy a meal more not only if it is of good quality but also of good appearance. A similar rule applies to restaurants themselves. A dining establishment with good food will do well, but one that serves delicious food amidst a cultivated ambiance will truly thrive. Ambiance represents the overall mood of the restaurant environment and, when well-crafted, enables customers to engross themselves in the dining experience and relax.
Many different design elements go into creating ambiance for restaurants, but two of the more overt, and consequently the more impactful components, are lighting and music.
The Role of Lighting in Restaurant Ambiance
Lighting helps shape the overall tone and mood of restaurant ambiance. Most formal dining establishments, for instance, make use of subdued lighting or candles in order to present an elegant atmosphere. Restaurants meant to be family-friendly, or which aim to appeal to children, typically employ brighter and more colourful illumination. Speaking of colour, lighting is also important in how it pairs with the interior design of the restaurant. Not only do the light fixtures themselves need to match your design, the light has to support your colour schemes and not make the tables, walls, floors, etc., appear washed out or otherwise hard to look at.
The Role of Sound and Music in Restaurant Ambiance
When discussing acoustic elements for restaurants, it's important to distinguish between "sound" and "music." Sound elements are things like the general noise level and how sound travels. For instance, this can include how easy it is to hear noises and voices from the kitchens or wait staff areas. Learning about the way sound travels through your restaurant is the first step towards making changes for improvement. These steps can be as simple as re-arranging tables or setting up a soundproof divider.
Music serves two general roles in restaurant ambiance. The first is to help establish the mood of the dining experience—having smooth jazz in the background sets a decidedly different tone than rock or metal. The second is to provide a mode of entertainment to engage customers. This is why some establishments opt for DJs, live musicians, juke boxes, music videos, or more creative means than simply playing music over the speakers.
