Luxury has become a term used to define something in a state of great comfort or elegance, especially when it involves having to spend quite a remarkable amount of wealth. People who usually partake in luxurious activities are regarded as rich or very well-to-do. Oftentimes, these people are royals, dignitaries or high-profiled people. Until the end of 18th Century, sitting down in public places, specifically for a meal, with a waiter and a fixed menu – which is now termed as a restaurant – did not exist. In 1765, a French chef called Boulanger established a business where he sold soups and other ‘restoratives’ (restaurants). However, the first real restaurant was recorded to have been founded in Paris, and was called “La Grande Tavern de Londres,” by Antoine Beauvilliers somewhere between 1782 – 1786. According to sources, Beauvillier did well to combine all four prerequisite of a proper restaurant, that is; an elegant room, smart waiters, a choice cellar, and a superior cooking. By the year 1802, restaurants were popularly known businesses where restorative foods such as bouillon, a meat broth and more, were served – which was originally known as ‘establissement de restaurateur.’

Many people have different reasons why they listen to music; some say it causes intense emotion and overwhelming joy within them, others also describe it as a source of comfort zone where they can be in their own little chambers alone to meditate about their lives without any interference.
