We loved the yacht club. Excellent people watching, friendly staff and entertaining decor around the bar. I love a good dive bar and we will return to the yacht club for sure! Maybe tonight 😊

Located off Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville, the Yacht Club caters to a very eclectic crowd. Their specialty drinks, especially when prepared by my favorite bartender in town, Sundance, are awesome. Don't be put off by the tattoos and loud music . . . this is a fun place to stop for a drink and the food is good too!!

Love the Yacht Club, but it can get pretty crowded. Terrific cocktails in a very casual environment.

The loud music calls you in. Perfect to grab a end of night beer and shot before calling it a night. Lots of friendly locals and good bar service. Thanks for a great time

Went with a few friends, had some great beers, split a pitcher of tots, enjoyed the atmosphere this bar has created, great little place that probably flies under the radar of most beer goers

The yacht club is a funky, tiki bar. Great for late night, last call crowd. Good selection of beers and excellent bartenders. This place knows what it is and fits the bill of a dive bar

Looking for a down to earth bar w/good drinks at a reasonable price...this is it. If you are a smoker there is an outside area. Sit at front and view the chaos happening in downtown Asheville.

We just stopped in for a quick drink and really liked the place. It threw me off that the atmosphere was very beachy with all of the fun decorations, and they were playing some hardcore rock music. I typically don't like heavy metal or rock music very much but I really didn't mind it here. The bartender was cool and... More
