On my own one night during trip to Napa, looking for live music. Hit on the Struts, playing at the Napa Opera House Ballroom. They handled the crowd well, giving us wrist bands while waiting in line for the doors to open. It never seemed too crowded anytime during the standing room concert. You can get drinks downstairs at the... More

The opera house is a great, quaint venue with great sound and a very convivial atmosphere. It's a pity is closing.

There's no opera there. It's been converted for stage shows and dining. There is a nice wine/whisky bar on the ground floor and it is historic looking.

The Napa Valley Opera House is a gorgeous facility. I enjoyed the shows more when the cushy seats were in place. City Winery has turned it into cabaret thereat, with food and wine and very hard chairs. That said, I still love it. There are a wide variety of good shows and the food is more than acceptable. It's a... More

Robert and Margrit Mondavi had theatre restored and it is stunning. They have a lovely tradition of showing old movies, narrated by the wonderful, beloved movie historian, Richard.
