A progressive restaurant in California is experimenting with the way music truly enhances the total dining experience. They have done this by combining music with the meal itself via wifeless headphones.
These “tasty tunes” dinners are the brainchild of Union Restaurant in Pasadena in collaboration with HUSH concerts from San Francisco. Diners wear headphones and the nature and tempo of music changes with each course.
No word on whether additional digestive aids might be needed.
- Music during meals is key to the ambiance of many restaurants, requiring careful planning
- Music is one of the key factors in creating a scene that will lure in diners over and over again.
- Attempts to time music to expected course length proved difficult as people eat at different speeds
“Kalman said the music was more about setting the energy, grabbing attention and getting diners focused.”
