Using iPad menus will not only save us time updating our menus, but will make the experience more interesting and comfortable for guests by allowing them to read tasting notes and see pictures of everything on the drink menus.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
Tavern at the Park, a favorite upscale bar and dining spot across from Millennium Park, has announced they’ve begun using iPad wine and drink menus. The iPad menus are supplied by Chicago-based tech company, Uncorkd, and allow the Tavern at the Park to highlight their curated wine selection, cocktails and rotating craft beers while providing a better experience to their diners.
“We change our drink selections frequently to add new cocktails and local and specialty craft beer,” says co-owner Donny de Castro. “Using iPad menus will not only save us time updating our menus, but will make the experience more interesting and comfortable for guests by allowing them to read tasting notes and see pictures of everything on the drink menus,” adds co-owner Peter de Castro, Jr.
Uncorkd provides a platform for restaurants to easily manage digital menus for their restaurants. Restaurants can update their menus in real-time through the cloud-based software and provide more information to guests using Uncorkd’s beverage database with information on 100,000 wines, beers and spirits. Uncorkd is currently used by restaurants throughout the country, but Tavern at the Park is the first establishment in Chicago to use the platform.
“Ordering a drink can be an intimidating experience for consumers who aren’t familiar with the dozens of craft beers or wines on a drink menu. Our digital menus make it easy for consumers to quickly learn about the drinks, so they can try new things and enjoy their dining experience,” says Josh Saunders, CEO of Uncorkd. “Plus, with the ability to update the list instantly, guests will never be disappointed by ordering a drink that’s out of stock, which can happen with paper menus.”
Tavern at the Park is starting with 20 iPads and will look to expand in the spring when the Tree House, their rooftop space overlooking Millennium Park, opens up. “We’re incredibly excited to welcome Tavern at the Park to our digital menu platform here in our home town of Chicago,” adds Saunders.
