August 2022 Edition
German beer bar and restaurant Brotzeit addresses a common situation in a thoughtful way: a guest tries to book a specific date, time and party size, but the location they’re looking at shows no availability. In many situations, this could be a dead end. Not here: utilizing the cross-selling capabilities of SevenRooms’ white-labeled reservation widget, they display inventory across four locations at once, encouraging crossover bookings and keeping more business within the group.
Long Meadow Ranch (St Helena, CA)
The legendary Napa Valley winery Long Meadow Ranch also runs a restaurant, cafe, general store and farmer’s market in scenic St. Helena. As our in-depth case study revealed, they have significantly boosted revenue by leveraging SevenRooms to merchandize unique experiences across the property. Days ago, they kicked off a live fire cooking guest chef series, with our fully integrated event management tools running in the background so they can focus on making the night magical for their guests.
Rockpool Bar & Grill (Perth, Australia)
Rockpool Bar & Grill is perhaps the most well-known concept within Australia’s mega-successful Hunter St Hospitality group, racking up countless awards over decades in business. At their Perth outpost, a customized landing page allows them to share photos, pricing and other details regarding their private dining spaces, saving the team time and bringing about a healthy uptick in inquiries.
Ossiano (Dubai, UAE)
Besides boasting one of the most stunning dining rooms we’ve ever seen, underwater restaurant Ossiano in Dubai’s Atlantis Resort is making waves with a two-night-only collaboration this weekend. Created in tandem with Chef Natsuko Shoji of Ete in Tokyo, recently awarded Asia’s Best Female Chef 2022, the 10-course dinners were offered—and quickly sold out—via the restaurant’s reservation widget, allowing them to collect prepaid revenue on every booking.
Munich Brauhaus (Sydney, Australia)
Munich Brauhaus—a boisterous Bavarian beer hall in Sydney—offers multiple prepaid reservation upgrades like schnapps, steins and pretzels on arrival as well as a giant apple strudel serving 8-10 people. Order the latter and they’ll ring the “Schnapps Bell” for you! Besides providing the opportunity for up-front revenue capture, these add-ons give guests something to get excited about, lessening the likelihood of no-shows and late cancellations.

The team at Hilton Manchester Deansgate is doing a masterful job merchandising the unique offerings in rooftop bar Cloud23. Optional add-ons during the booking flow include Champagne, guaranteed window seats and even a hotel stay, called “A Night in the Clouds”. Their example not only underlines the enormous power of prepaid upgrades to increase guest spend, but also demonstrates how to effectively market experiences across venues within a single property.
ICYMI: The hotel sold a staggering 43 rooms this way for Valentine’s Day 2022 alone.
Chef Erick Williams of Virtue Restaurant in Chicago is among the headliners in the recently-launched Capital One Dining Program, powered by SevenRooms. But cardholders aren’t the only ones whose experience can be enhanced by a well-timed table touch from the award-winning chef. In fact, the restaurant’s cleverly configured Reservation Widget has made it so that any guest can enjoy a bottle of Champagne and some quality time with Williams.
When it comes to breathtaking settings, Kaliya in Santorini is hard to beat. Perched atop the tallest cliff on the island, the restaurant offers prime real estate for guests hoping to glimpse a fiery sunset. In fact, their tables with an unobstructed view are in such high demand that people are willing to pay a premium to sit there.
The Bulgari Hotel London has just launched a very Italian riff on classic British Afternoon Tea Service, relying on SevenRooms’ white-labeled solution to keep their impeccable branding at the forefront. Executive chef Adriano Cavagnini and resident pastry chef-chocolatier Gianluca Fusto are taking the menu far beyond finger sandwiches and scones.
Michelin-starred Korean steakhouse COTE in Miami continues its Wine Club Dinner series with California’s Pax Mahle on Monday, July 18. Just nine seats are available for an evening that promises choice cuts of beef paired with “not your grandfather’s Cabernet”. With SevenRooms’ integrated ticketing and event management features, the restaurant is able to seamlessly execute these special events without interrupting nightly service.
