City Winery Expanding to Five New Locations in 2022

City Winery will open new venues in St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Detroit and an iconic NYC location to be announced.

Winery and live music venue City Winery is making its biggest expansion in 2022 with the addition of five new venues throughout the country. With the five new locations, City Winery will have a total of 17 venues by the end of the year.

City Winery is adding St. Louis, Mo.; Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Detroit, Mich. The growing company will also open a special restaurant and performance space in an iconic New York City location to be announced in early 2022.


“While the pandemic may have paused us and so many other gathering businesses, we are very grateful to have strong demand for our unique combination of live entertainment, great wine and food and be able to bring it to more cities nationwide,” said City Winery founder and CEO Michael Dorf in a release. “We have big plans to continue expanding with another eight locations in the works for 2023.”

City Winery’s will be opening in the summer of 2022 at The Foundry in St. Louis, The Terminal in Pittsburgh, on South High Street in Columbus just South of German Village, and in the historic district of Corktown in Detroit. Each of the locations will offer concerts and live performances, an event space, restaurant and winery among other signature City Winery elements.

In the midst of the pandemic, City Winery continued to see demand, according to the company. In the past year, Coldplay did a private show ahead of Global Citizen, John Mulaney did a 37-night sold-out residency and many other performances that graced their now more than 20 stages.

“When musicians or comedians tell us we need to build in Toronto or Charlotte, or an agent says Los Angeles or Houston is desperate for a City Winery caliber location, we realize we have raised the bar on the quality of the entertainment experience and that there is almost an unlimited pipeline of opportunity for us in the future,” added Dorf.

To date, City Winery has locations in New York, Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Boston, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. In 2020, City Winery opened Hudson Valley, a hydro-powered winery, vineyard, restaurant, outdoor concert venue and private events space at the historic Montgomery Mills. Other concepts run by the company include City Vineyard at Pier 26, City Winery at Rockefeller Center, City Winery Chicago at the Riverwalk, and City Winery Greenway in Boston.
