The new Tianjin Concert Hall is located at the original Xiaobailou Square, by the intersection of Nanjing Road, Zhejiang Road, Kaifeng Road and Jianshe Road of Xiaobailou Area, Heping District.

The Hall has a floor space of 4,860 m2, which is divided into entrance section, seating area, platform, dressing room, rehearsal room and VIP reception room. Its design strictly follows the acoustics requirement of standard concert hall.
