Four Ways to Celebrate Dad’s Big Day 

Father’s Day is June 21st, and it’s the perfect day to show your appreciation for that special father figure in your life. There’s nothing better than giving the gift of quality time, so spoil him with some of our Downtown favorites on his big day! Here are four great ideas to help you celebrate dad this year. 

For the Grill Master

Treat dad to a special dinner he won’t forget. Cole’s Chop House, a classic American steakhouse located right in the heart of Downtown Napa, is known for its 21-day dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood, world-class wine list, and a robust bourbon and whiskey selection. They are open for dine-in service along with well-spaced patio seating for some al fresco summertime dining. Make your reservation today!

If your dad is more of a DIY kind of guy, Oxbow Public Market’s Five Dot Ranch is making it easy for you with pre-built Grill Kits. Choose from one of three kits (Happy Father’s Day, Father of the Year, and Best. Dad. Ever) and enjoy premium cuts of meat along with a selection of gifts and add-ons ranging from a bottle of wine to hats and shirts! Visit them in-store or call 707-224-5550 to reserve a kit for pick-up Saturday or Sunday morning.

For the Adventurer 

It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the great outdoors, and luckily, Napa has plenty of it! Cruise down along the Napa River to enjoy the fresh air, sweeping views, and dad’s company. If you’re visiting, ask your hotel if they’re offering bikes for guests to enjoy, or rent one

If you and Dad are interested in getting off the land and into the water, the Napa River runs right through Downtown and is a great way to see the city from a different perspective. Explore kayak rentals here, and consider hopping on a tandem kayak for some extra one-on-one time! 

For the Beer Connoisseur 

Downtown Napa’s brew scene is a beer-loving dad’s paradise! As many of our breweries have reopened, he’s sure to find a favorite pint in the mix. Enjoy Fieldwork Brewing’s open seating in the Oxbow Market while you sip on craft brews founded right here in the Bay Area. Or, hop over to Stone Brewing Napa to sit back and relax with dad on the riverfront. Their expansive outside space has allowed for more private seating arrangements. Reservations are encouraged, especially for Father’s Day! 

Not sure which one is his favorite? Learn more about Downtown’s beer scene here, and grab dad the gift that keeps on giving – our Beer Tasting Card! This way, you and dad can enjoy half-price beer flights at six Downtown area breweries on your next visit. 

For the Traveler 

If you and your family members aren’t quite ready to travel yet, that’s ok! We’ll save you a seat at your favorite places. This Father’s Day, plan that special trip that he can enjoy when the time is right. Explore our lodging options and itineraries designed to help you get the most out of your visit to Downtown Napa and, if you’re lucky, maybe dad will take you along for the adventure. Happy Father’s Day!
