When it comes to relatively rural Napa Valley, the town of Napa is considered the “big city” – so it’s no surprise that the area’s best nightlife can be found here. Whether you’re looking for some late-night jazz or just want to find high-energy vibe, you needn’t travel far. Here are five venues that keep the night going long after sundown.                                                    

Blue Note Napa. This hot spot is part of an international chain that originated with the famed jazz club in New York. It features headliners like David Sanborn and Kenny G as well as more local talent. And its restaurant serves top-flight food, from bar bites to full dinners.

Mercantile Social Terrace. Hidden on the enclosed roof of the Andaz Napa Hotel, this is a terrific spot for a small group or twosome. Rocking chairs surround the fire pit, and the bar serves curated wines and seasonal cocktails along with healthy light bites and savory comfort foods.

Bounty HunterIf it’s BBQ and comfort food you’re looking for, backed by a lineup of more than 400 premium wines by the bottle and 40 wines by-the-glass, look no further than this place. It’s just added a long list spirits, as well, featuring more than 40 American whiskeys available by the glass or for purchase.

Silo’s. This intimate venue on the Napa riverfront is a great place to experience great live rock, rhythm and blues, and jazz. It serves yummy small plates as well as creative cocktails, craft beers, and of course Napa Valley wines.

Cadet Wine Bar. One of Napa’s newest and hippest hang-outs, Cadet serves California wines, rare Champagnes, and even beer in a can as well as beautifully crafted charcuterie boards and other small bites. Once a week it hosts a party featuring a guest bartender – usually a local winemaker, brewer, or chef.
