If you're looking for an intimate date spot and live on NYC's Lower East Side, check out the Moxy Lower East Side. The many venues inside are equipped with 1 Sound solutions for that sweet sound.

Located in the lobby is an all-day bar and café called The Fix. Here there are distributed Cannon C6s(opens in new tab) and installed FSUB45 and SUB310s that are hidden under banquettes and throughout the space. Tao Group’s restaurant, Sake No Hana, is a 4,227 square-foot space that seats 165. Anthem installed Cannon C4is and C6s along with Tower LCC44s, satisfying the needed SPL and clarity for this restaurant. 1 SOUND Wall Subwoofers and Floor Subwoofer were distributed as well as SUB310’s, which are comparable to the SPL output of a double 18-inch subwoofer with a slimmer form factor. Then there is the piano lounge, Silver Lining, that pays tribute to the entertainment-filled neighborhood of the hotel. At this venue, there can be several different performance groups in a night. Cannon C6s and SUB310s are deployed for this space.
