City of Napa
Napa Valley's Nightlife and Entertainment Epicenter
As the largest town in Napa Valley, the City of Napa is a destination in its own right.
Downtown, in particular, is home to locally driven restaurants, hip wine tasting rooms, music venues, whimsical works of art, and so much more. For a change of scenery, rent kayaks and paddle the Napa River. Shopping is sport here, too, whether you're looking for art or something new to wear for dinner.

Where to Go
A visit to Oxbow Public Market is required while in Downtown Napa. Indulge in tasty options like sourdough bagels from a Michelin-starred chef at Loveski Deli, salted caramels and chocolate truffles from Anette’s Chocolates, and fresh oysters from Hog Island Oyster Co.
Don’t miss the iconic Uptown Theatre, hosting live performances and concerts, or Blue Note Napa, the premier jazz club in town. Enjoy your glass of wine accompanied by live music at JaM Cellars’ recently renovated Wine and Music Studio. To keep the evening going, order a late-night tipple from Sky & Vine Rooftop Bar at the Archer Hotel.
Where to Drink
Located in the old boathouse at Napa River Inn, The Fink serves classic drinks. From the creators of the lively wine and beer bar, Cadet Wine + Beer Bar, comes Chispa – a tequila-centric spot that showcases agave-based spirits. For elevated cocktails, go to the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at Copia for a drink at the new cocktail bar, The Haven.
Urban tasting rooms offer unique experiences like Benevolent Neglect Wines (classic vinyl on repeat), WALT Wines (seasonal pairing bites from La Toque), and Azur Wine Lounge (local art, photography, and vendor pop-ups).
Where to Eat
Scala Osteria & Bar offers seafood and southern Italian flavors, while Croccante Artisan Pizza serves Detroit-style pan pizzas. Upscale gastropub fare is on the menu at The Lincoln, (open late night!) located north of downtown Napa.
