11 Cadogan Gardens, Hans’ Bar & Grill

11 Cadogan Gardens, Hans Bar & Grill - Bars & Restaurants by CGA Integration


Nestled amongst the artisanal shops and food suppliers of Chelsea’s Pavilion Road, Hans’ Bar & Grill provides an oasis of calm. The botanical infused space offers a variety of unique cocktails and an all day seasonal menu rooted in British produce and underpinned by classic cookery. Taking its inspiration from its namesake Hans Sloane, who is credited with bringing cocoa to the UK, it also has a central focus on chocolate desserts and hot chocolate drinks. In addition to the main restaurant there is also a 20 seat bar and a 16 cover private dining room ‘The Curio’. Having previously worked with 11 Cadogan Gardens to enhance the sound in their lobby and reception areas, CGA Integration have designed and installed the audio throughout this new restaurant and bar, and integrated it into the central system previously installed by CGA.


Although this project did not pose any particular challenges for CGA Integration, throughout, CGA were mindful that products were chosen and installed to fully integrate with the scheme created by interior designers Goddard Littlefair.


CGA Integration have designed a three zone sound system comprising of the bar, restaurant and cafe, all within the lower floor of the hotel. The ceiling speakers, EV C4.2s, have been integrated with the ceiling design, lighting and other services. They have been custom finished to match a specific RAL colour to ensure that they blend into the interior design and minimise visual impact, whilst still delivering the highest quality audio. In addition, wall controls have also been custom finished to match electrical furniture. For ease of use and control, the sound system has been integrated into the existing rack, previously installed by CGA Integration. This rack already controls the audio in the lobby, lounge, toilets and reception areas. The central system has two channels of music content created by Music Concierge, this serves different zones of the hotel to optimise the guest experience.


Mr Soliman Khaddour General Manager commented “CGA Integration were the obvious choice to install the sound in Hans’ Bar & Grill, as we had worked with them before and had been very pleased with the results. We now have a fully integrated sound system from the lobby through to the new bar and restaurant, which is easy to operate and helps to create the right atmosphere for our guests.”
