TIRED OF NOISY BARS & RESTAURANTS?

Welcome to the Anti-Noise Pollution League, a community that celebrates dining + drinking establishments where you don’t need raised voices to have a conversation. With input from you, we'll shine a spotlight on great places to go that have taken measures to turn down the volume on the music and dampen the background noise so you can enjoy a quiet night out.

BRING CONVERSATION BACK TO THE TABLE.

Help us discover great places to escape the noise. Take a decibel reading with one of the many smartphone apps so you can scientifically say for sure that your place is truly quiet - less than 75dBs. Then email us that info so we can share it here.

MAKE A SOUND DECISION

Four out of 10 restaurants are loud enough to damage hearing, while only three out of those are good for conversation. You can use SoundPrint's free app to both measure the noise around you and submit the restaurant name to a crowd-sourced list of quiet places. Make sure to share your findings with us too.

WHY IT MATTERS

Hearing health is at a tipping point for people of ALL ages, driven by urban noise pollution and ear-bud use. Exposure to noise above 80dBs can cause permanent hearing damage within just a couple of hours, according to the CDC. No one wants that on the bill.
