in the spotlight: ABode Hotel, Manchester

ABode Hotel, Manchester

Michael Caines dining is the heart and soul of every ABode Hotel. So when the team behind the boutique chain opened new premises in Manchester, they were looking for an audio solution that would ensure the customer experience lived up to the Michelin-star rating.

The Michael Caines dining experience doesn’t just consist of the Michael Caines Restaurant. It also extends to the Champagne Bar, Café Bar & Grill, and BarMC. Each of which has its own unique offer and ambience, and as such requires its own approach to audio.

Our solution was a bespoke 10-zone audio system featuring architecturally complementary Bose® speakers, flush iPod docking stations, balanced audio output and full in-house DJ solution for BarMC with careful control of frequencies to avoid disturbing guests in the rooms above. A system capable of delivering clean, crisp sound not just in each individual bar and dining area but in the hotel lobby, lift foyer, toilets, gym and meeting room too, bringing each space alive.

By designing one complete solution, we were able to create an ambience that connects seamlessly throughout the hotel, firmly establishing Abode as the place to go when out and about in Manchester with family or friends.


From the customer

Hutchison-t have carefully designed the audio solution to accentuate the dining experience, Quote "one cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not eaten well" . The quality and reputation of the culinary delights available at all the Abode restaurants is unquestionable. We passionately believe that the audio solution only goes to complement and enhance the extraordinary dining experience.
