City Winery Napa is housed in the historic Napa Vally Opera House which opened in 1880. The Napa Valley Opera House was originally a popular site for shows, town meetings and balls. Jack London read from its stage, John Philip Sousa led his brass band there and John L. Lewis fought an exhibition match. Hurt by the decline of vaudeville, the Opera House closed in 1914 and remained dark for nearly a century.
City Winery has returned the 1880 theater to a flat floor as it was upon its opening. Downstairs, the largely underused space, which served as a reception area for theater patrons, has been redesigned as a restaurant and a bar that is open seven days a week. Dividers made of wine barrel slats separate the bar from the dining area.
City Winery hosts wine dinners and tastings, intimate music concerts, private events and full restaurant open seven days a week.
