Steinway Hall (German: Steinway-Haus) is the name of buildings housing concert halls, showrooms and sales departments for Steinway & Sons pianos. The first Steinway Hall was opened 1866 in New York City. Today, Steinway Halls and Steinway-Häuser are located in World cities such as New York City, London, Berlin and Vienna. A flagship Steinway Hall is on 57th Street in Manhattan in New York City, near Carnegie Hall. Related concepts by Steinway include Steinway Piano Galleries, Homes of Steinway, Steinway Rooms and Steinway Salons; these buildings have all the same features as Steinway Halls but are smaller.
