My mother and I got to see the Beach Boys live. The theater is very beautiful and the sound quality and lighting were great. The staff is very friendly and even had me laughing quite a bit at the entry and the concession counter.

It has always been on our bucket list to see Kathy Griffin. We were so fortunate that she was performing at the Uptown theater during our stay. Every seat has a good view of the stage and the acoustics are great. It is an intimate setting for a comedy show and I would love to return for another comedy show... More

The intimate space (900 seats) is the perfect place for live music. Good acoustics, clean, roomy seating and many restaurants within walking distance.

We love the Uptown in downtown Napa - very nicely restored classic theatre. We usually see several shows there a year - always Jerry Jeff Walker's annual visit and most recently Cheap Trick. We live in Cali and take the Amtrak to Napa and book a hotel in downtown - no car needed. Great restaurants around - right next to... More

Took my Wife and Daughter to this Concert. It was phenomenal! Great music, great dancers... the experience of a lifetime. The theater itself is very old and beautiful. The ceiling artwork is gorgeous. Everyone should see this event.

The Uptown Theatre was less than 3 miles from our hotel, but because of the holiday shopping and sightseers, we left way before the Craig Ferguson show was due to begin. We were pleasantly surprised at the available parking nearby, and ease in getting in with tickets we purchased online. It's very nice to be able to take an alcoholic... More

Fabulous concert! Great music, friends, seats and plenty of space to enjoy the show. Always fun to explore downtown Napa before or after the show. Hope to have this group back soon!!

Location is easy to find, plenty of parking within walking distance. Small cafe attached to catch something to eat before the show. Tip: if you are female, go to restroom before you really need to, long lines to restroom!

Have been here a number of times. I agree there isn't a bad seat in the house. Beautiful art deco design, wonderful sound system and great seating. There are lots of places to eat within walking distance. Street parking and city lots are easy and within a block or two of the theatre. The venue adds to the class of... More
