Restaurant Acoustics | Interesting Links
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011  | posted by

The importance of good acoustics in the restaurant environment has been recognised throughout the world. We have found the following interesting studies, links and information regarding restaurant acoustics: -


In New Zealand, the Acoustical Society of New Zealand has been actively promoting a ‘Cafe & Restaurant Acoustical Index Guide’ called CRAI. This has been promoted through the media and the National Foundation for the Deaf. See here for more information – http://www.acoustics.ac.nz/crai.php

 

New Zealand also has a Cafe & Restaurant Acoustical Index – see here – http://www.acoustics.ac.nz/crai.php

 

In the US, a local radio station in Toronto has started an initiative to bring together people who dislike loud, noisy restaurants and recommend quiet ones to each other. See here for more information – http://www.classical963fm.com/antinoisepollution/

 

Scientific American had an interesting pod cast out last year concerning the food quality and the notion that unwanted noise altered the participants perception of food taste. The results show that food was perceived to be more bland when the environment was too load. Check out the podcast at – http://bit.ly/b7XB3U

 

The Huffington Post produced an interesting test on some of the most noisy restaurants in the US. Some very intersting comments – http://www.zagat.com/buzz/just-how-loud-is-that-restaurant-testing-eateries-with-a-decibel-meter
