Bar Noise Influences Drinking

Posted:

A new study finds that the music playing at your favorite bar could affect how much you drink.   French researchers went undercover to observe bar patrons at lots of different nightclubs.  

The researchers got permission at the bars to play with the music levels and they discovered that people drink more in a shorter period when the music is louder.

The study says there could be some physiological reason for that but it is more likely that loud music just makes it too hard to have a conversation so people drink more and talk less.
