Once upon a foggy day, the trade winds blew a warm streak of tropical sunshine across the San Francisco Bay and dropped it right in the heart of Downtown Napa. Like wind on a sail, the spirit of Wilfred arrived among the vines with his trusty ukulele and a little Tiki spirit.

Many moons ago, Wilfred’s big sister Flora found a Spring and cultivated some very special wines in St. Helena. Wilfred was home in Honolulu, welcoming guests to his bar where the drinks were strong, the company was charming, and there was always “just one more” story to tell

As we celebrate our legendary Uncle Wilfred and his epic hospitality, we invite you to experience a little aloha and escape to our corner of the world. We’ve taken the best parts of Napa Valley Wine Country, gave it a shake and a dash of Hawaiian culture to bring you Wilfred’s Lounge; our family’s take on a modern Tiki bar. Swing by to try something new that embraces old traditions too. You’ll find our cocktails will take you on a journey somewhere totally unexpected.

If you listen closely when happy hour strikes, you might hear a few strums of Wilfred on his uke, his little akua (spirit) humming a tropical tune.

Wilfred’s menu includes Island-inspired small and large plates, traditional and creative Tiki cocktails, and a full bar as well as wine and beer. With two stories, floor-to-ceiling windows, and rooftop views of the Napa River, Wilfred’s Lounge is filled with authentic Tiki carvings, installations, and art pieces created by a group of highly regarded artists, designers, and carvers.

Wilfred’s Lounge is open five days a week, Wednesday to Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (kitchen closes at 9 p.m.). Reservations are not required but are accepted.
