Totally unexpected. The name makes one think of a high society pretentious expensive hipster bar. On entering, staying and drinking it's clearly the opposite of pretentious. Wonderful place for drinks, great service. Quirky!

Membership is $1.00. Great selection of beers. Friendly patrons and staff. Ordered chicken Ceasar wrap and a bowl of the vegan chili. Both were good plus must order the tater tots.

The Yacht Club is now members only, but membership is free and worth the effort. The name is somewhat misleading...more like the Pirate club, as the decor is done in mid-century pirate. Drinks are great (get The Painkiller, complete with burning sugar cube) and the food is awesome. The pitcher of tots will definitely satisfy!

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
