Hotel lobby areas are a great opportunity to make sure arriving guests get to know your customer experience before they’ve even checked in. Make your in-house dining and bar experience memorable.
Different service areas require playlists that can be heard over a quiet or noisy environments whilst setting the vibe for your venue. Multiple styles and genres will fit; it depends on your venue.
Hospitality venues are perhaps the most natural settings for playlists. Whether it’s a restaurant, bar, café, all day food venue, gastropub, hotel lobby, wedding venue stock offering or conference venue, there’s bound to be an opportunity to increase your customer experience.
The music in these environments is a chance to create an ambiance befitting your brand. There may be a requirement for the playlists to peak every 90 minutes to cater for a changing audience, or you might need something with a longer build up. Sometimes the playlists need to convey an atmosphere as soon as a customer walks through the door and require something more continuously upbeat but ultimately not too wearing on customers already in your venue, or indeed the staff working in those venues.
Hospitality venues tend to have long opening hours, meaning the playlist may need to change over the course of the day. Perhaps early mornings can be covered with something light, such as classical music, the playlist can build to pop and upbeat classics over the lunch to early afternoon period, and something a bit more funky for the evenings?
As part of the process, I’d advise asking staff working in your venue to trial sections of the playlists as they’re being created. They have to work whilst listening to them all day, every day, and if they enjoy the music then so will the customers.
The possibilities are endless, which is why I’d prefer to complete this type of playlist after a visit to the premises, both during trading hours and when the venue is empty to audition tracks so that I can understand your customer audience and venue. This may not be possible at the moment (March 2021) but I hope things will get better soon for all hospitality venues.
There’s a sample playlist below. I’ve also included a number of related playlists which may be of interest as you audition my playlists. Please do get in touch for a no obligation chat if you’d like to discuss anything further.
Hospitality Venues. Wedding venue: stock playlists. Cafés and bars: coffee lounging to late night drinks. Restaurants and hotels: conversational and the right vibe. (See also Bar By Day, Bar By Evening, Luxury Evening, Late Sessions and Seasonal playlists)
