A restaurant is a space where some of the biggest memories are made. From birthday parties to graduations, engagements to wedding anniversaries, customers turn to these venues to make their celebrations more special.
By meeting, and even transcending their guest’s needs, a restaurant or pub can reach new heights of success. Ensuring that the venue’s atmosphere is as special as possible means maintaining a great reputation; the reviews of people who have great experiences are essentially free marketing. More wonderful moments mean more customers and ultimately better bottom line results… And dining pods are an ideal way to contribute to those memorable events.
The Powerful Moments
In “The Power of Moments” by Chip and Dan Heath, the pair explores the defining moments that shape our lives. These are meaningful points that involve one or more of the following elements: elevation of the senses, insight (or learning something new), connection with others and pride in ourselves. We do not, however, have to sit around and wait for these to happen to us – we can go out and create them ourselves.
Your restaurant, pub or hotel guests can create memorable celebrations thanks to pod dining experiences in 3 ways.
1. Dome dining is a treat for all the senses
The human memory is proven to be linked to the senses. We remember events by remembering sounds, smells, tastes and what things felt like. Though we do remember experiences visually too, a time that involves the other senses will be far more vivid.
A pod dining experience, which involves all of the senses, is a memorable thing for any guest. Whilst sitting in a dome such as our Hypedome S. Clear, people will enjoy the smells and flavours of food, separated from the hustle and bustle of the world. You can give them more privacy than with a traditional table. Your clients can play the music of their choice to put themselves in a good mood. LED lights add an extra special touch as the sun sets and the stars begin to come out. No wonder outdoor dining pods are often sought after by customers.
2. Our domes offer unique experiences
Studies have shown that unique or peculiar events stick in the mind for longer… and a dome private dining experience is certainly extraordinary! With light displays set against the transparent shell of the dome, even the most common garden or outdoor space is transformed into somewhere memorable. This is an easy way to add value to your venue and to make your guests’ celebrations more significant!
Create themed parties that suit your guests’ visions with seasonal decorations. From fitting fake cobwebs and spooky ornaments for Halloween to dressing the pod with holly and lights for Christmas, the opportunities are endless. Decorating a dining pod is much easier than decorating an entire room in a restaurant or bar; this allows you to change up your theming frequently.
3. Dining pods facilitate connection
People rarely remember time they spent on their own; instead meaningful moments stem from connection and bonding with others.
With space for up to eight guests, dining igloos provide the perfect setting for a range of different events. Dinner parties are made that bit more magical in an intimate setting with lights all around. Reunions with friends are so much more meaningful in a beautiful pod dining experience. Romantic meals are truly special when it feels like you’re in your own little paradise. That is also why food bloggers love dome dining and willingly write about it.
These personal events in a dining pod can be low cost, but they’re always high value. Venues should look to the high returns from investing in a dining dome. One Cambridge restaurant even got 3700 more covers in 12 weeks from partnering with Hypedome. With more space for high quality events, there’s a great potential for bigger profits.
