Saw my first concert here recently and would definitely return. Didn't seem to be a bad seat in the theater. As in most places, it would be nice if they had a larger women's restroom -- the line was long but moved between bands.

We drive 3 hours to visit Napa & have been to the Uptown for a comedy act (2014) and music (2015). This a wonderful venue - it is small and well laid out - not a bad seat in the house. If an act that you want to see is coming to the Uptown it's worth the drive!

I called the box office to request handicapped seating. When I first spoke to the ticket agent, he said "no problem, we can put you right up front". Then I mentioned that I have a Service Dog, he said he would need to speak to the Manager. I was put on hold, he came back to say that they could... More

I have seen so many amazing shows here. We trashed it with snoop dog, laughed it up with top comedy acts and have seen more great artists here than another venue. Comfortable chairs, stunning decor and a very good bar and when available the food is inventive and tasty.

Thank you Jon for your review and glad to hear you find the venue so satisfactory. We certainly are proud of our comfortable seating, extended leg room and "Every Seats is a Great Seat" designation. As for the high ticket prices, bringing top headline entertainment to our small theatre in Napa is certainly a challenge and we hope that we... More

First time at Napa Uptown Theatre. Great place. Attended the Robert Cray Band show. Un-crowded bar. Outdoor bar. Beautiful restoration. Not a bad seat in the place.

I remember the pre-restored Uptown Theater growing up in the 60s in Napa. It is thrilling to see it restored to its pristine days. The world class acts make Napa proud.

We love hearing from folks who remember visiting The Uptown before the restoration 5 years ago! Napa is thankful to the owners for restoring this beautiful landmark so that she may continue to offer memories for generations to come. Thank you for your patronage and we hope to see you again for a show. More

Great venue, intimate theatre. Parking a little difficult. We saw Dana Carvey, and the show was packed. What a great turn out. Wonderful comedian. I tried to see several films during the Napa Film Festival at this venue, and due to capacity limitations, I was unable to see the films...a disappointment.

Thank you Katherine for attending Dana Carvey's show. He had a great time performing for us that night and what an extra bonus it was having his two sons open for him!
