With live acts and DJs providing cutting-edge sounds, and chefs creating innovative dishes, no two nights at Cristó are ever the same. From the first sip of an aperitif, through dinner and dancing to the last drop of a late-night drink, guests experience a blend of music, food and entertainment that’s carefully tailored to each event held here. It’s all wrapped up in traditional Italian hospitality and passionate attention to detail.
“With our experience in the industry, we knew it was important to have the best in every aspect of Cristó,” explains Co-Owner Liguori. “That’s why we chose to work with Pioneer Professional Audio.”
Cristó’s versatility means it can feel nicely full with 200 guests, but when the furniture is rearranged, it can comfortably hold up to 500. The venue comprises several connected zones over two floors including the mezzanine upper level. With a welcome area, lounge and live music space, cocktail bar and a two-room restaurant overlooking the main part of the venue, it’s a large and unusually shaped building. In short: an audio technician’s nightmare.
Local installation company Masti Eventi was enlisted to install a sound system with a request to place speakers high in the room. “It needed to be balanced and harmonious, with excellent diffusion in all areas,” says Maurizio Prestileo of Masti Eventi. “And we needed to make sure sound didn’t leak from the building because it’s in the center of the city.”
