Makes Any Event Truly Special

If you have an event or wedding coming up in the near future, you may be considering different venues. The venue is a considerably important aspect of the event. You never want to leave the venue to chance or perhaps wait until the last minute to try to secure the appropriate spot. If you have an event coming up in the Greater Pittsburgh area look to the grandeur of Heinz Hall for something truly special. Heinz Hall is known for hosting the best and biggest events of the season and they invite you to host your next event in one of the amazing and elegant rooms. If you are looking for unparalleled elegance, style and sophistication, look no further than Heinz Hall.

The History

Some venues are built for the events they are set to contain. Others add a bit of mystery to every event they host by allowing the setting to seep directly into the event. That is something that Heinz Hall is best at. The history of Heinz Hall goes back to the 1880s and has been home to the early theater acts in that era.

Although the original building was not known as Heinz Hall but rather, Anderson House. Theater companies had to board the actors and Anderson House made for a spacious and accommodating stay. One of the most notable figures to house his acting company within the walls of Anderson House was John Wilkes Booth. Over time the reputation of the establishment slowly went downhill and the building eventually shut its doors in 1964. The location was vacant until the revitalization of the building into Heinz Hall in 1971. Since then, Heinz Hall has been hosting the most spectacular events in Pittsburgh. The most recent renovation in 2015 has catapulted the Hall into one of the most sought after places to have an event in the city.
