While the Napa Valley may be best known for its wineries and restaurants, based on Visit Napa Valley’s most recent 2018 Visitor Profile Study, “bars and nightlife” rank as one of the top ten visitor experiences in the region. Now, the legendary Napa Valley experience extends well past the last wine tasting appointment or dessert course. Below is a suggested list of late-night experiences in Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga:
Andaz Napa presents Andaz Artists, a rotating roster of musicians (mainly acoustic guitarists) from the Bay Area that play in either the Mercantile Social or the Lobby Lounge every Wednesday and Saturday 8 to 11 p.m. These musical artists play a collection of covers as well as original songs.
