Beautiful theater with history. Great staff, relatively comfortable seats and unobtrusive security. Having to wait a half hour for the show to start without explanation or apology kept it from a perfect review. Plenty of free parking in the vicinity. Go early, park on the...More

Just saw Lyle Lovett at the Uptown. An intimate historic theater in downtown Napa. No balcony but all the seats are good. Pretty good acoustic design. Close proximity to many great restaurants!!!

We recently traveled to Napa to see Cesar Millan at the Uptown Theatre. Wonderful show and such a beautiful cozy theater. We love the smaller venues. Very clean and although recently updated, they have maintained the old charm. Would love to come back.

The Uptown Theater, located in a historic 1937 art deco building, provides a fantastic environment for concerts in Napa. With seating for only 860 people and excellent acoustic, you feel integrated visually and aurally with the performers. We grabbed a cocktail before Robert Cray's show...More
