Advantages of good acoustics in a restaurant

At a restaurant a lot of people are sitting in a rather small space. This makes it very important to take sufficient acoustic measures. The following acoustic challenges play a role:

Speech intelligibility

Good acoustics make it easier to understand each other and people at the same table can communicate without raising their voices.

Lower sound levels

By improving the acoustics, the sound level in the entire room decreases. As a result, there is more peace and quiet and concentration increases.

Less reverberation

By reducing the reverberation in the room, sound spreads less quickly and the perception of sound in the room is pleasant.

Better reviews

More and more customers complain about restaurants with poor acoustics. Good acoustics lead to more fun and thus better reviews.

In many restaurants there is something called ''the cocktail party effect''. This effect causes people to raise their voices to make themselves understood. The result is that the people at the next tabel will do the same thing and as a result people will start shouting at each other.

The cocktail party effect significantly increases the sound level in the room. This can be solved by improving the acoustics. This should preferably be done as close to the customers as possible, for example by applying acoustic solutions directly above the tables. Sound is then dampened as much as possible at the source and spreads less quickly in the room.
