In the Einestein-dilaton theory with a Liouville potential parameterized by η, we find a Schwarzschild-type black hole solution. This black hole solution, whose asymptotic geometry is described by the warped metric, is thermodynamically stable only for 0 <η < 2. Applying the gauge/gravity duality, we find that the dual gauge theory represents a non-conformal thermal system with the equation of state depending on η. After turning on the bulk vector fluctuations with and without a dilaton
