Case Study:
China Tang, The Dorchester, London

China Tang - Bars & Restaurants by CGA Integration


CGA Integration was chosen to supply background audio throughout the stunning new China Tang redevelopment of the Dorchester Club dining room. The Chinese art deco interior includes four luxury private dining booths enhanced by 42” Plasma screens, stylish bar area and prestige restaurant dining.


The refit was a complex project requiring CGA Integration to work closely with the Vivid interiors project team to integrate fittings and solutions with designers including entrepreneur owner David Tang.


Providing an intimate, high quality sound to the tables is achieved using EVID 4.2 ceiling speakers, boosted by EVID 10.1 bassbins. Audio sources include CD players, hard drive playlist player and Sennheiser radio microphones controlled from a breakout box at the maitre d’ station.

Bar Area

The bar area provides an opportunity for pre dinner drinks, where background music complements the interior design in introducing the sumptuous China Tang mood. Additional DJ inputs create flexibility for tailored entertainment or event hosting. Evid 4.2 ceiling speakers and 10.1ceiling bassbins deliver quality audio throughout.

Private Dining Booths

42” Samsung Plasma TVs, multi zone DVD players and independent booth volume control enable diners to customise audio and video in these four prestige twelve seater booths.

The screens with dedicated DVD players offer a choice of 40+ global TV channels from the main hotel distribution or the option to screen discs of any format on any DVD / CD media, including Karaoke discs.

Additional features include sliding door concealment or image duplication between booths for larger functions.

Background audio is delivered from the main PA using Evid 8.2 ceiling speakers and controlled from within the booth using the discreet RSL 6 plate for ease of use.
