Live DJs have quickly become a popular feature in the contemporary landscape of high-end restaurants. Many new establishments are sacrificing prime dining floor area so they may prominently feature a DJ booth. The Restaurateur's goal is not simply to entertain patrons and create ambiance but to use the name-recognition of DJs to draw customers and impart a sense of luxury and ”cool” cachet. Along with this cultural phenomenon comes an assortment of sound isolation and room acoustics issues that must be addressed to provide patrons with an enjoyable dining and listening experience and ensure the thumping dance music results in minimal impact to adjacent spaces and properties. In this talk, a number of such issues will be discussed using real-world problems and solutions from current high-end restaurants.
