Henry’s Cocktail Lounge is often described as the “Cheers of Napa.” Everyone may not know your name when you arrive, but you’ll certainly feel like a local by the time you leave. Meet the friendly “Norms” of Napa while you’re at this cozy, down-to-earth bar. From affordable drinks to you-pick music from their juke box, Henry’s is a great spot to bring your special someone for a nightcap or a group of weary travelers for a post-wine tour recap.

For a more farm-to-fork, foodie experience, Basalt Napa is the newest hotspot along the Napa Riverfront. This Spanish meets Portuguese meets Mexican eatery has a cocktail list worth checking out. Whether you’re looking for a classic favorite like a mint julep or something new like their namesake-themed drink the Basalt Negroni. This gin-based apéritif is infused with campari, Italian vermouth, gravity dispensed negroni and rests over basalt rock. Check out this new kid on the block!

While you’re exploring the Napa Riverfront, stop into another fresh face, The Corner, located on – you guessed it – the corner of Riverfront Plaza’s Main Street pavilion right in the heart of downtown. The sophisticated yet welcoming lounge is ideal for a first date or a milestone anniversary. The Corner’s drink designer, Krysta Angulo, carefully selects fresh ingredients each day to mix with the vast selection of refined spirits, creating unique cocktail combinations.
