Marquee AV Amplifies the Italian Essence of Bocconcino’s Soho Location

Marquee AV, provider of bespoke audio solutions, has announced the completion of a cutting-edge audio system installation for the newly opened Bocconcino restaurant in the heart of Soho.

This latest venture brings the authentic taste of northern Tuscany to London, serving traditional wood-fired pizza and homemade pasta in a setting that blends classic Italian charm with the vibrant Soho spirit.

The sophisticated interior of Bocconcino Soho, featuring warm natural hues and elegant marble accents, echoes the luxurious atmosphere of its Mayfair predecessor. To complement this, Marquee AV designed an audio system that enhances the restaurant’s opulent theme. The ground floor, which hosts live resident DJs every Friday and Saturday night, as well as Saturday Brunch, now resonates with exceptional sound quality, setting the tone for the weekend.

Recognising the need for aesthetic harmony, Marquee AV’s project manager, chose Bose Professional due to a proven superiority and diversity in speaker design, says the installer. As a major UK installer of Bose Professional, Marquee AV has a longstanding relationship and deep trust in the products, so were confident in their ability to meet the demands of the project.


The installation features Bose Professional wall-mounted DM5SE speakers throughout the restaurant, chosen for their strong performance and streamlined design to blend with the decor. The unique shape of the restaurant and last-minute architectural improvements posed problems that were successfully overcome by the varied speaker designs from Bose Professional.

The EdgeMax speakers, with PhaseGuide technology, were strategically placed to project audio toward the rear of the restaurant, ensuring consistent coverage and sound quality. Further elevating the quality and coverage of the sound, Marquee AV installed Bose Professional FreeSpace Acoustimass bass modules in the ceiling and under the benches. Marquee AV’s dedication to detail is evident in the custom spray-painted terracotta speakers and subwoofers, to match the interior, and preserve the restaurant’s distinct aesthetic.

Marquee AV shares, “From the outset, Bose Professional was the obvious choice to help us achieve the level of design and performance demanded by this luxury development. As we delved deeper into the project, the variety and design of Bose Professional’s speaker selection proved invaluable in navigating the property’s unique infrastructure challenges. Utilising a combination of Design, FreeSpace, and EdgeMax speaker technologies, we were able to offer a discreet yet powerful solution that maintained the integrity of our original performance design.”

The installer says the result is a blend of visual elegance and audio brilliance, transitioning from day to night with ease. It provides the ideal setting for Bocconcino Soho’s dining experience while amplifying the live DJ performances.

The general Manager from Bocconcino Soho expressed their delight with the new audio system. “We are absolutely thrilled with the audio system Marquee AV has installed at our Soho location. It has exceeded our expectations, especially during our live DJ sets. It delivers a crisp, immersive sound that perfectly encapsulates the energy of our events. Their expertise is evident in the seamless integration of the system with our venue’s aesthetics and the effortless transition it provides from a relaxed dining atmosphere to an electrifying evening vibe.”
