Restaurant Virtual Tour | Bar Meze

Bar Meze is a fabulous Mediterranean restaurant situated in the heart of the historical Roman town of St Albans. It is a favourite hangout of the Striking Places team, as well as most St Albans foodies and visitors to the city who quickly become returning fans.

With St Albans heavily promoting itself as a desirable city destination it is important for all these hidden treasures to become more visible and take advantage of the increased footfall Street View Trusted brings. Putting Bar Meze on Google Maps is a highly effective way to attract customers into the restaurant and encouraging them to interact and share the atmosphere through the 360 virtual experience.

A particular challenge with this shoot was how to present a popular and highly successful restaurant to the public. Faced with the choice of showing an empty restaurant, or a vibrant busy social space Fouad Hassan, co-owner, opted to show the restaurant as it is on a normal evening so the viewing public got a true feel for the place as it really is. Therefore, customers’ faces in the photography were blurred as per Google’s privacy policy.

“Jo Hailey from Striking Places produced our Google Virtual tour for Bar Meze. Striking Places are a joy to work with, they are very professional and talented. The virtual tour is high quality and gives a very good idea about our restaurant. The work was very reasonably priced and delivered in a timely fashion.”
#Interesting Fact no 23: The Striking Places team often visit Bar Meze for team meetings and on one particular occasion started with lunch and worked our way straight through to the dinner menu.
