I read somewhere online (It's on the 'net, so it *has* to be true, right?) that "experts" on the restaurant business seem to think that noise translates to "this must be a real happening place" inside customers' heads.

So, now most restaurants have a lot of live, reflective surfaces such as formica counters, ceilings with no acoustic tile, lots of windows, etc. so that even a little bit of conversation around the room gets loud.  And they play the background music a little louder than they used to.

This idea is also a reason why sportsbars have gotten so popular, I suppose...  I just go to these places to play Buzztime trivia (and maybe watch sports).  Most of the time I wish it'd be a bit quieter, but if I'm playing trivia I can usually block the noise out, sorta...

I have a simple solution for having a conversation in a noisy restaurant; everyone at the table brings their own bullhorn.  (I haven't actually tried this, but frequently threaten to do so.  If you try it, please let me know how it goes.)
