What could be better than dining out at a restaurant you love? Dining out at a restaurant you love that also offers live music, of course! If you've found a restaurant in your area that is hosting a band or performer you'd like to see, then you're done with step one. Here are a few other steps to follow to ensure that your night of dining and music is next-level enjoyable.
Make a reservation
Restaurants tend to get very busy on nights when they have live music. So, even if this is not a restaurant you would usually make a reservation at, it is a good idea to call ahead and reserve a table. Some restaurants even require this when they have live bands. Call as soon as you're confident you'll be going; they might fill up surprisingly fast.
Plan to be there when the band goes on stage
It is usually more fun to already be seated when the band first takes the stage. Keep this in mind when you are making your reservation. For example, if the website says "live music from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm," then a reservation at 6:45 pm will be perfect. This way, you get to hear about the band when they are introduced. The restaurant will also be a little quieter when you are seated and placing your order.
Order food you don't have to pay close attention to
This is probably not the time to order a specialty steak and lobster that you'll have to slice and eat carefully while looking down the whole time. Instead, order something that is easy to eat and doesn't require much effort on your part. This way, you can focus on the band while you eat. A burger, pizza, chicken sandwich, or any kind of wrap tends to be a good bet when you're at a casual restaurant.
Alternate your drinks
When you're jiving with the music, it can be easy to get carried away and drink a little too much. To keep this from happening, try alternating your drinks. Enjoy one alcoholic beverage, and then one without alcohol before ordering another alcoholic drink.
If you follow the tips above, you can have an even better time at a restaurant that offers live music. There's just something about listening to a good band, eating a filling meal, and enjoying a drink that brings people together.

There are a lot of different things that can set your restaurant back financially, but one of the biggest problems is issues with food sourcing. I used to source different ingredients from a bunch of local distributors until I realized that I could save a lot of money by working with national food suppliers. I want other people to realize how to resolve some of the most common restaurant ownership challenges, which is why I decided to focus on this blog.
