The Yachtsman opened last year in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia, and has quickly become one of the most popular craft bars in town. It’s owned by Tommy Up and Sarah Brown; Up has a longtime love of tiki bars, having included visits to many of the great old classics in his travels. It shows in the decor: the bar is backed by three thatched A-frame structures, the bar front is lined with lauhala matting, and there’s a whole lotta bamboo. The drinks are a particular bright spot, with attention to ingredients and classic recipes.
