The Blue Note Napa is unable to verify or guarantee the authenticity of tickets which were not purchased directly through the above listed authorized sales channels.  For this reason, and because we are unable to provide any information regarding ticket purchases to a party other than the original purchaser on the order, we do not recommend purchasing tickets from 3rd party resellers.

Please be aware of “imposter” web sites that do not link you directly to Ticketweb or Ticketmaster to purchase a ticket. We do NOT recommend purchasing tickets from a 3rd party ticket broker or unauthorized sources on the internet or phone as this may result in the following:

  • Paying more than the face value of the ticket
  • Your tickets, if lost or not sent, cannot be replaced if purchased from a broker
  • The Box Office has no way to guarantee the validity of tickets and can’t guarantee admittance
  • We cannot contact you with information regarding time changes, show cancellations or postponements.

Is there a dress code?

Napa casual, as long as you like it! We are an indoor, seated and an intimate club, so keep this in mind.
