The restaurant should also have a changing pace with regards to the dining rooms, entertainment and the lodging.
The choice of design must also consider the customer segment that the restaurant have. The customers that are in their teens and mid-twenties will appreciate having a mixture of dull colors and music. In contrast, old customer segment of people over fifty years will not be comfortable with noisy atmosphere or a poorly lit setting.
