About Amber Taverns.

Houston, we have a…
When Amber Taverns came to us, they were in a sticky situation with numerous music providers. This made it hard to organise and have consistency across their pubs, and they wanted to consolidate the service. They were also looking for a more efficient way to make the most of the screens in their pubs.
With the aim of offering such great prices to their customers, value was also really important to the brand. They were in need of a cost effective solution for their entertainment needs.
This is how we do it
Amber Taverns were ready for a modern, cost-effective solution. That’s where we come in.
Enter our intuitive, enterprise-grade user platform and ultra-reliable hardware, the Startle Player; a pint-sized PC that’s future proof and runs from the cloud. Designed to manage the consistency (and quirks) across a whole hospitality estate.
We also work with the brand to provide their digital signage - an easy way for the brand to make the most of their screens, scheduled on the same platform as their music.
Our unrivalled, industry-leading SLAs gave Amber Taverns proactive, around-the-clock monitoring and resolution to all of their wants and needs from our support team, with no time wasted waiting for call-outs.
With all locations having access to 150 playlists, there’s a nearly-endless variety of music to choose from. This means that the communities in Amber Taverns pubs can listen to playlists compiled for the best listening experience. And because the brand value giving their sites autonomy, they can set the schedule to best suit the customers they know so well.

Amber Taverns have a default music profile, tailor-made by Startle, covering mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends. Warm, positive and familiar, each playlist is specifically designed for cosy pub environments, for moments with friends and of course, eating and drinking. However, general managers on site still have access to all of Startle music's additional playlists, meaning they can customise their site's sound. From 80s nights to brunches, Startle playlists cover a myriad of activities and events, giving sites a plethora of choice.
Familiar, Merry, Buoyant
Pop, Rock, RnB
ABBA, Chaka Khan, David Bowie, Blur, Janet Jackson, Jamiroquai, Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Look at me now
Startle’s fully integrated, one-stop-shop solution was also designed to work with Amber Taverns digital signage requirements. Their Startle Player connects to their video distribution system, meaning they can have their own TV channel for food and drink promotion.
Amber Taverns are delighted with the service we provide them - a cost-effective, efficient, consolidated way of providing entertainment in their brilliant pubs, with support around-the-clock.
In the future we hope to continue providing the brand with cost savings on live entertainment, with offerings such as Ultimate DJ and Rock and Roll Bingo - exciting times ahead!

From my first interaction with Startle I have been very impressed with the understanding they have of what we're looking for. Creating a 'vibe' or environment within a space is something quite hard to explain but the support and reactivity they gave throughout the curation process was incredible.
