At this new multi-use downtown development (home of boutique Archer Hotel Napa), you’ll find an array of enticing eateries, including an outpost of Charlie Palmer Steak and the Mayacamas tasting salon.

One of the area’s most famous wineries, Mayacamas brings its mountaintop vineyards to this trendy urban setting. Sample the quintessential cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and merlot that the brand is known for. You also can try a curated selection of rare, older vintages and library wines.

Local designer Erin Martin was commissioned to create the Mayacamas’ lounge, which combines heritage furniture with futuristic accents — something that the winemaking team strives to deliver in every bottle.
