This iconic theater was the perfect setting to see Chris Isaak in concert. The seats are super comfortable, visibility to the stage is great (especially when you are seated 4th row from the stage!) and you can even bring your purchased drink to your seat. The acoustics are outstanding. The theater is close to many restaurants in downtown Napa. A... More

This was my first time at this venue and believe me, I'll be back! This is an old theater which has been immaculately maintained. The seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room. The walls and ceilings are painted with lovely murals -- it's just a beautiful place. The main reason I'll be back is the sound system -- perhaps... More

We have been here twice for concerts. The old theater has been lovingly restored and now features world class acts. The seating is comfortable, the ushers friendly and the surroundings gorgeous. What a great place to see a concert!

Even though we live in the Sacramento area, we went to this theatre to see a personal favorite singer of ours, who we have never seen before, Rick Astley. The venue is beautiful and a classic of the days when you built majestic theatres even in small towns. Highly recommend that you attend a concert or similar event here.

We seen Art Garfunkel on Friday night. The Uptown theater is an outstanding venue. Art's voice defiantly shows his age at 75. It was cool to see him. On Saturday we seen Get The Led Out. This is our 2nd time seeing them and they are outstanding. As to the staff in the Uptown I must say they are very... More

Attended the Dr John concert at the Uptown Theatre. First time visitor there. Not a bad seat in the house and prices for tickets were so low! Very convenient to have food & beverage available and drinks welcomed in the theatre. Great acoustics and art deco era. Will be back for another concert or event here!

This place is the crown jewel of theater redo projects. All of the seating is close enough to the stage to see everyone with ease. We sat next to the sound boards and were only 10 rows from the stage. There are two bars and a courtyard dining area attached to the theater. The bathrooms are spacious and the staff... More

This is a great venue for live entertainment and thankfully the prices are still really reasonable. I have been here for three concerts, the most recent one in May and you just cannot beat the acoustics. Every seat is good (provided they don't stand up to dance in the row - that is really annoying). The bathrooms and common areas... More
