Bar-B-Q Tonight Restaurant is First to Deploy a Scala Digital Advertising Network in Pakistan


Bar-B-Q Tonight Restaurant is the first to deploy a Scala digital signage advertising network in Pakistan.

“The Scala digital advertising network has facilitated the restaurant’s growth, allowing us to present a modern guest experience and improve our quality standards while increasing our revenue”.

The Bar-B-Q Tonight Restaurant was opened in October 1988 with a seating capacity of 150 guests. Since then, and due to its continued dedication to food quality, service, and the environment the restaurant has become the most popular family eatery in Karachi City; making it well known throughout major cities in Pakistan. With the addition of two floors and a roof-top BBQ area, the restaurant now has seating capacity for 1500 patrons.

The overwhelming reason for the continued growth of the restaurant is its reputation for providing high quality food and a modern guest experience.
