“Great venue!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Loved the art deco theater and intimate venue. We had balcony seats and they were great - you would have a great view from anywhere in the theater. Friendly staff. My only complaint is that they allow alcohol in the theater. I drink, so it's not that I disagree with it. We were at the Clint Black concert (which was great) but there were a bunch of people sitting behind us who arrived drunk and continued to buy drinks and just get more obnoxious as the night wore on. Maybe if they didn't allow it, it would keep that to a minimum.

“Local Venue Shines”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The Uptown Theater was the perfect venue for the Brian Stowe Fundraiser performance by Tim Flannery and Friends. The theater is easy to find; parking is easy, and there are restaurants nearby. The updated venue has been restored beautifully. There are no bad seats here.

“Great spot for good tunes”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

There is nothing about this place to dislike other than perhaps the shafting you get from Ticketmaster in buying tickets through them and that's not Uptown's doing.
We live in Healdsburg, about an hour away and drive here regularly to see live music- last week saw Greg Allman. It's a beautiful theater with enough intimacy to really enjoy the show.
Full bar and now a small food place-
Great spot- if you can go the box office to buy tickets do so to avoid the pound of flesh Ticketmaster demands

“Comfortable venue”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Love this theater. Located in Downtown Napa it was easy to find. Attended a J-Boog, Fiji and Katchafire concert. Had seats in the upper level, lots of room to dance and a great seat. There is a cafe and bar at the venue. Nation's Burgers is just two blocks away, a nice place to see the concert star and to pick up an after concert dinner.
